    Anchorage Private Tour

    Are you ready for this jam-packed description? Okay, this incredible 3-hour adventure begins with an origin story -- head to Ship Creek where Anchorage was first settled in 1911. There, you'll find a thriving salmon stream, frequented by many a downtown angler. In this location you'll also be able to spot the original location of the Anchorage rail terminal for the historic Alaska Railroad. From there you'll hit Earthquake Park and Point Woronzof to take in the stunning view of the Anchorage skyline set against the backdrop of the Chugach Mountains and Cook Inlet. Next, stop at the busiest seaplane base in the world, Lake Hood. You'll get a great view of all of the local bush pilots as they expertly land their planes and taxi to their landing docks. After this, you'll get to see the infamous Turnagain Arm and Beluga Point and try to spot Beluga whales, Dall sheep, mountain goats, black bears, and bald eagles. Your journey continues into Potter's Marsh and the Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge, a protected wildlife habitat home to many migratory species of birds in the summer. Climb the stunning vistas of Flattop Mountain and get a bird's-eye view of the Municipality of Anchorage (which is larger than the entire state of Rhode Island!). You'll also get stunning views of Sleeping Lady, Denali River, and on clear days, the Alaskan Range. After that, head back downtown where your guide will point out the best restaurants, bars, gift shops, and art galleries before bidding farewell. All that in 3 hours? Whew! What an itinerary!

    Summer Sunset Photo Safari

    Anchored down in Anchorage for the summer? Perfect time to capture a few shots of the Midnight Sun! Head out with a professional photographer for some one-on-one photography instruction, and tips on some of the best spots in the vicinity to capture late-day shots. As you travel, enjoy additional insights into natural history, which will serve to lend context to the dazzling backdrops you find yourself photographing. Meet at Stewart's Photo Shop in Downtown and hop aboard a cozy tour van. Travel along the scenic Cook Inlet Coast, and arrive at Earthquake Park for your first shoot: the remaining aftermath of the Great Alaska Earthquake of 1964. Then, pay a visit to Point Woronzof, known as a gathering spot for local moose. With a little luck, you'll be hanging a picture of antlers on your wall, but either way you'll have the opportunity to photograph a beautiful perspective of Cook Inlet backed by the Alaskan Range. Afterwards, a pit stop at Lake Hood Floatplane Base will give you the chance to snap some shots of the summer air traffic. Follow with a voyage through Potter Marsh. Formed 100 years ago, totally by accident, this whoopsie wetland now serves as a home for migrating birds. Continue your trip with a drive along Seward Highway, and then take quick hike to McHugh Creek. Master shutter techniques as you photograph the river's flow into Turnagain Arm, with a better-than-bad chance at spotting beluga whales swimming below. Finish your picturesque journey high up in the Glen Alps of the Chugach mountains for panoramic shots of Anchorage and Cook Inlet, just in time for sunset. As a private tour, you can work with your guide to tailor your inventory, and make a spontaneous stops along your route to shoot the local wildlife (with your camera). Happy hunting!
