Sightseeing Tours

Alaska Day tours are the bread and butter of sightseeing in every Alaska community: You get to sample the best of Alaska's stunning glaciers, rugged fjords, tundra-clad mountains, and of course its wildlife, then still enjoy a nice dinner and sleep in a comfortable bed at night. Most day tours have a specific focus: It might be exploring local indigenous cultures, seeing as many glaciers as possible, exploring the World War II artifacts that dot the state, or trying fun activities like whitewater rafting or hiking. Either way, you're guaranteed the adventure of a lifetime.

You don’t have to venture far for a fascinating and fun Alaska tour. Every one of Alaska's cities and towns comes with an unusual backstory. You can get to know each of these communities with a sightseeing tour through the city, ranging from train tours to trolly tours to guided and self-guided walking tours. Many tours include a demonstration of Alaska Native singing, drumming, and dancing in the local tradition, then pair you with local guides who will share the cultural history of the area.
