Want to liven up your sightseeing experience in Anchorage? Explore the ins and outs of downtown on a motorized two-wheeled Segway. Gliding effortlessly down the sidewalk with a small group and informative tour guides is a popular way to experience the best of Anchorage in a short amount of time. Your tour starts with a safety training video, followed by time for getting acquainted with your machine and your helmet. Worried about finding your balance? Most folks catch on quickly, and your guides can help you get past any anxiety you might have at trying something new.
Downtown Anchorage offers both historical and Alaskan-lifestyle themed sights. View homes of famous Alaskans, try to glimpse Anchorage’s downtown wildlife (including beaver dams, birds, and the occasional moose) or watch fishermen sporting hip-waders in pursuit of “the big one” down at Ship Creek. No matter the route, you’ll see gorgeous views of Cook Inlet and the Alaska Range – and on a clear day, you’ll see Denali (Mt. McKinley) too
In addition to the Downtown Anchorage Tour, Segway Tours of Anchorage offers the first ever premier Segway Tour around historic Lake Hood and Lake Spenard. Glide your way through the world’s busiest seaplane basin with airplanes taking off, landing and flying overhead. This tour is great for families, and groups of friends!
