Anchorage

— 12 nights

The City of Lights and Flowers

Home to nearly half of Alaska's population, the port city of Anchorage covers a staggering area of over 4,900 sq km (1,900 sq mi) surrounded by mountains.
Spend the 30th (Mon) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. Make the 6th (Mon) an awe-inspiring day at Chugach State Park. The adventure continues: gain insight at Alaska Native Heritage Center, explore the striking landscape at Portage Glacier, tour the pleasant surroundings at Potter Marsh Bird Sanctuary, and tour in style with a train tour.
