As magnificent as Alaska’s scenery and wildlife is, you’ll also find yourself charmed by her people and towns. Immerse yourself in the culture, history and attractions of the region, including watching a lumberjack competition, attending a Native dance performance, seeing ancient totem poles or enjoying an authentic salmon bake.
Gold Rush History
Experience the days of the Alaska gold rush with tours that give you a taste of history, such as an adventure on a vintage gold rush-era train through Yukon territory or meet local miners at an authentic mining camp and try your luck at gold panning.
Soak up the beauty of the Great Land and experience the thrill of life at sea with world-famous fishing adventures. Fish for halibut or King salmon with expert anglers or set out with the Bering Sea fishermen and hear about their true-life adventures and experiences in pursuit of crab.
Take a snow day and explore the incredible glaciers nearby. See spectacular views only available by flightseeing or enjoy an exhilarating helicopter landing on a glacier. View the ice blue Mendenhall Glacier by kayak or mush along the ice and snowy terrain on a thrilling dog sled ride.
Hop aboard a rustic trolley in Ketchikan to see popular attractions of Alaska’s “First City” or for a glimpse into the city’s Gold Rush era, take a stroll along the legendary Creek Street. Step back in time with a ride on an authentic sternwheeler riverboat and cruise along the Chena River in Fairbanks.
Get as close as you can get to being in the wilds of Alaska. Set out on an ATV excursion into the backcountry, sail high above the forest canopy on a zipline, kayak through a fjord or hang on tight for an exciting whitewater river rafting excursion or jet boat ride. Experience Alaska as it was meant to be — rugged and wild!
