Walking Tours

The City of Anchor­age may be rel­a­tive­ly young, but it has a sto­ried his­to­ry that is rich enough to keep you cap­ti­vat­ed for hours. And who bet­ter to recount some of the high­lights than four for­mer may­ors who were there when they hap­pened? Among oth­er things, you’ll hear about Anchorage’s wilder days, what the 1964 earth­quake was real­ly like, how oil mon­ey helped shape many facets of mod­ern life, and Alaska’s lit­tle-known 911 scare.

Season: Year Round $130+ 3-8 hrs

Get to know Alas­ka in a tru­ly authen­tic way — through its unique cui­sine. On this walk­ing food tour, you’ll sam­ple fla­vors as you explore Anchor­age and hear sto­ries of the 49th state.

Lake Hood is the busiest sea­plane base in the world with 200 dai­ly oper­a­tions (take­offs and land­ings). If you’re stay­ing at a hotel near the Anchor­age air­port, this is the best place for a near­by walk. Our walk­ing tour high­lights the most inter­est­ing view­points, his­tor­i­cal fea­tures, and insights into the avi­a­tion activ­i­ties going on around the lake.

So don’t just stroll through town — take the offi­cial tour, brought to you by long­time res­i­dent experts: Alas​ka​.org and the Anchor­age Con­ven­tion & Vis­i­tors Bureau.
