Sightseeing & Tours
Alaska spills over with breathtaking sights you won't find anywhere else: the crystalline blue of glacier ice, brown bears snatching salmon from a stream, the northern lights dancing overhead, and 20,310 foot tall Denali, the highest peak in North America, to name just a few.
The question isn't whether you'll see something life-changing here — it's a given — but which type of sights you'll choose. It might help to narrow your choices down to a few categories: urban sightseeing options cover local food, history, and culture in Alaska cities like Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, Sitka, and Ketchikan. Day tours tend to focus on wildlife viewing, history and culture, and seeing as much of Alaska's glorious landscape as possible, whether you're traveling by boat, motorcoach, all-terrain vehicle, or horseback. Train tours and flightseeing on small planes or helicopters are popular ways to see Alaska’s vast terrain.
And you don’t just have to see the sights — you can also experience them in interactive sightseeing trips. Pan for gold as you learn about Alaska’s rich gold mining history. Learn the ins and outs of dog mushing as you climb aboard a dog sled or cart for a thrilling ride. Or, capture the shot of a lifetime on a photography tour.
