Ratchet up the adventure factor and try your hand at dogsledding. Alpine Air Alaska flies to a dog camp run by the oldest established dog-sled tour business in Alaska. You’ll travel by helicopter from Girdwood’s green forests up over a small saddle to land on a glacier and be introduced to the dog team. You'll get to stand on the sled runners and "drive" the dogs yourself, or sit in the sled and survey the hanging glaciers that surround you.

When Chris Roberts came up with the idea for Gold Mine Safari Tours, he knew he’d struck it rich, so to speak. This low-impact adventure tour showcases Alaska’s grandeur and highlights its mining history—all from the unique vantage point of an open-air, high-mobility ATV known as a Pinzgauer.

Alaska ATV Adventures offers a variety of day trips around the state, but its main offerings are on trails near Girdwood, where you can explore Alaska’s rainforest. You’ll ride to several scenic overlooks, including a view of Turnagain Arm. If you’re lucky, you may also see moose, bears, and eagles. Choose to drive, or just ride along while someone else does the steering.

Alyeska Resort is far more than a ski destination; it’s an epicenter for outdoor adventure year-round at the gateway to the Chugach Mountains, with sweeping views of mountains, ocean and glaciers. The views are worth the trip alone. In winter, you can swoosh down some of the snowiest slopes in North America on skis or a snowboard. Go for a dogsled ride with an Iditarod veteran by day or moonlight. In summer, take to those same slopes on a mountain bike. Hike a portion of the Historic Iditarod Trail, or strap on a pair of crampons and trek on a glacier with a guide. You could be flightseeing in the morning, take an ice-climbing lesson in the afternoon, and dine that evening at Seven Glaciers, the resort’s AAA Four Diamond restaurant atop the mountain.

Crow Creek Mine has been in operation since 1896, and gold is still found in its claims today! Your guides will be members of the mining family that keeps Crow Creek operational. This is their home, so tour groups are kept small, creating a more intimate environment and allowing more time for questions. Try your luck at panning, and keep what you find.

Chugach Adventures Portage Creek Float is an affordable, two-hour trip down flat water—and just a short drive from Anchorage. This trip doesn't offer the same wilderness feel that pricier floats do; the road stays in sight almost the entire time (though there’s not much traffic on it). Still, you will enjoy some beautiful Alaska scenery, floating past four named glaciers and down the valley until you hit the ocean.
