Alaska has the nation’s greatest concentration of glaciers; approximately 100,000 of these frozen marvels cover nearly 30,000 square miles. Glaciers in Southcentral Alaska are the most accessible.
Glaciers have shaped Southcentral Alaska’s geography for thousands of years, carving wide valleys, pushing aside stone and leaving behind streams. Visiting one can be the trip of a lifetime, but that doesn’t mean it is difficult. By boat and plane, on foot, behind a team of dogs and even sitting at a first-class restaurant with views of seven nearby glaciers – Anchorage is your window on these icy titans.
The dream of landing a trophy fish lures people from around the globe to Anchorage, where urban angling is just a stone’s throw from downtown and remote fly in fishing in the Alaska wilderness is an easy day trip.
Easy access to rivers, lakes and saltwater has earned Anchorage a spot on Field & Stream magazine’s list of America’s Best Fishing Cities. Here, anglers can pursue salmon, rainbow trout, Dolly Varden, arctic grayling and more right in the city. Monster halibut, trophy trout and all five species of Pacific salmon are within a day’s drive or fly-out fishing trip.
Snow, trails and wild tails! The Last Great Race is an endurance race through wide-open spaces of Alaska for the four-legged, gold-medal athletes of the annual Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.
Anchorage's bright starry nights are nature’s perfect backdrop for dancing northern lights, also known as the aurora borealis.
Vibrant blues, pinks, greens and yellows sway in the sky, marking the path of the dancing aurora borealis. The shimmering opus can be seen swirling in Anchorage’s starlit skies as early as 8 p.m. during winter months. Also known as the northern lights, they can be incredibly bright, multihued and fast moving.
Anchorage possesses a great concentration of experienced guides, eager to share their impressive scenery on an adventurous excursion, an easy bike ride, a flightseeing tour of the glaciers, a railroad tour of the state or a day trip to Anchorage's most important sites.
