The breathtaking city of Anchorage astounds with the beauty of its fjord-carved coastline and the snow-capped peaks of the Coast Mountains. Surrounded by so many stunning natural landscapes, this Alaskan town is a perfect paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. From snow-shoeing to sea kayaking, there are so many ways to enjoy the dramatic scenery that envelops the city! Cycle through alpine forests and along the edge of icy lakes in Chugach State Park, take in the stunning panoramas of Anchorage as you climb Flattop Mountain, or soar down the slopes instead at the Hilltop Ski Area.
Hike along the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail and enjoy the salty spray that’s whipped off the waves in the Cook Inlet, then sit back and relax as you birdwatch from the boardwalk at Potter Marsh. For a more laid-back adventure, take a ride on the Alaska Railroad and admire the magnificent views of the mountains, sea, forest, and glaciers as they unfurl around the city. While the city is renowned for outdoor recreation, there is also plenty to do in town! Visiting attractions like the Anchorage Museum, the Alaska Native Heritage Center, and the Alaska Aviation Museum are all must-add items to your trip itinerary.
