Anchorage Sampler

This is the perfect program for visitors with limited time but wish to experience Anchorage.

Anchorage started as a construction camp and the headquarters of the Alaskan Engineering Commission after the United States Congress authorized the building of a railroad in 1915. Immediately, the small “Tent City” burgeoned to almost 2,000 people. Bordered by the shores of Cook Inlet and the Chugach Mountains, Anchorage now stands as an enchanting metropolis surrounded by rugged wilderness. The largest city in Alaska, Anchorage is home to nearly half of the state’s population. Explore the city with a private driver/guide, providing the opportunity to make the visit truly yours.
