Anchorage in detail

Enjoy a warm welcome to Alaska’s largest city, Anchorage. This busy metropolitan is known for its incredible location between the snow-topped peaks of the Alaska and Chugach mountain ranges. On your visit feel free to either explore the greater landscapes or make yourself at home in the city itself, where there is plenty to do.

Discover the key places of Anchorage interest, head to the vast Anchorage Museum which details the history of the city and surrounding area; here you’ll find over 600 objects belonging to Native Alaska as well as a gallery of important Anchorage artworks. When you reach the Imaginarium Discovery centre, get ready for hours of interactive fun. Another museum highlight is the Alaska Heritage Museum.

For magical Anchorage views, head to the viewpoint at Resolution Park or spend the day on the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail. In the summer, look out for the beluga whales which can be spotted off the shore.
