Anchorage is a unique, year-round destination with once-in-a-lifetime experiences, a place where young spirits and adventurous souls come to play. Step foot on a glacier, fish for king salmon, hike to a mountain vista, fly out to Mount McKinley, cruise in comfort through Prince William Sound and enjoy hip, metropolitan amenities with frontier flair. Set amid the coastal Chugach Mountains, Anchorage defies popular visions of polar ice caps and frozen tundra. It’s also warmer than you think (averaging 65 degrees in summer), making conditions ideal for sight-seeing or taking on uniquely Alaskan opportunities like arctic biking or touring the fjords of Prince William Sound. In the winter, you can ski, dogsled or do both simultaneously by “skijoring,” which is cross-country skiing while being towed by a dog. Hey, it’s no crazier a winter sport than the biathlon.

Summer sporting activities include biking, dog sledding, fishing, horseback riding, golf, kayaking and river rafting, just to name a few. Dont forget to go bear watching – Alaska is the only US State with three bear species: brown, black and polar. Though you would need to go further north to see the polar bear.

In winter, ice climbing, skiing, snowmobiling, dog sledding are just one of many activities and of course you have to see the Northern Lights!

The wide variety of shops in Anchorage means your suitcase should go home just a little heavier than when you arrive. You’ll find there is something for the most dedicated shopper. No sales tax is an added benefit. Anchorage dining includes some of the freshest seafood in the world, which Alaska chefs offer up in a variety of mouth-watering creations in Anchorage restaurants. From plump, cold-water Kachemak Bay oysters, to Alaska king crab, fresh-caught halibut, and wild Alaska salmon – the staple of Alaska seafood, Anchorage restaurants have it all!
