    Winter Dog Sledding

    Salmon Berry Tours
    Tired of only getting to yell "mush!" when your mom asks you what you want for dinner? Try out an entirely different context for the word, with this awesome Winter Dog Sledding package from Salmon Berry Tours. Your day begins navigating the snowy roads north of Anchorage -- not on the dog sled yet though. That comes later, after an early lunch in Wasilla, and maybe some photos at Denali. The good stuff happens when you get to Dallas Seavey Racing and meet your crew. You'll get to know each other via traditional canine methods -- they'll sniff your butt -- and then they'll introduce you to the dogs. And then it's racing time! You'll take part in "The Last Great Race" at this exceptionally professional kennel. And you'll finally get to say that magic word. You know the one. The "M" word.

    "Turn... again?" Yes, again! Trust us, you'll want to when you see the incredible panoramic views at the top of Mt. Alyeska. In fact, you might catch yourself spinning about for some time, as you try taking in all there is to see. In one direction, beautiful glaciers and foothills -- in the other, meltwater pools -- in yet another, more foothills, and beyond!

Then you'll enjoy a relaxing tram ride up the mountain, where you'll be treated to the aforementioned view. After you're through turning and taking it all in, you'll get to check out the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, home to bears, musk ox, wood bison, and other critters of note! Lunch is included, in case looking at any of those delicious animals makes you hungry. That was a joke. Don't eat the animals.

    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!
