Alaska Sightseeing at its Best!

Looking to experience more of the Last Frontier in just a day or two? Gray Line Alaska offers day and multi-day tours chock-full of Alaska’s most notable sights and activities, including a selection of unique Alaska adventures all around the state.

Explore Anchorage City Tour: Enjoy the view in and around Alaska’s largest city with an up-close-and-personal, half-day tour of Anchorage. Learn about the city’s rich history on this narrated drive, including notable events such as the infamous earthquake of 1964 and Anchorage’s early beginnings. Continue on to the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center located downtown, where a wide variety of art, history and science exhibits are on display. Kids will love the Imaginarium Discovery Center at the museum, a hands-on experience featuring more than 80 exhibits and simulated earthquakes and auroras. Lunch is served at the museum restaurant Muse, offering up fresh regional fare with Asian and European influences. To top off the city tour, a visit to Alaska Wildberry Products— home to the world’s largest chocolate waterfall. Alaska Wildberry Products is a great place to pick up your Alaska gifts and souvenirs and taste delicious, locally made chocolate, jams and other goodies.

Riverboat Discovery Cruise & Gold Dredge 8 Combo: This day trip, located in Fairbanks, travels along the Chena and Tanana rivers on a 900-person sternwheeler. Along the river guests have the opportunity to view a bush plane take off right next to the boat, stop at late Iditarod winner Susan Butcher’s kennels and walk through Chena Indian Village — a replication of an old Athabascan village. Following the cruise, guests will have the chance to see and learn about the trans-Alaska oil pipeline before taking off to Gold Dredge 8, a National Engineering Landmark. Here, guests will see demonstrations of how the gold mining dredge worked during Alaska’s gold rush era, followed by time to pan for your own nugget of gold!

Kenai Fjords Adventure: For those looking for something a little longer, consider venturing to the picturesque Kenai Peninsula on this three-day, two-night adventure. Travel south of Anchorage via motorcoach to the harbors of Seward, a quaint town along the coast of Resurrection Bay, known for its eclectic shops and breathtaking views. Day two begins with a six-hour day cruise from Resurrection Bay into Kenai Fjords National Park, where marine wildlife abounds. Keep an eye out for whales, sea otters, porpoises, seals and sea lions. After returning to Seward, guests hop aboard the Alaska Railroad for a four-hour train ride back to Anchorage. Gray Line can provide overnight accommodations and airport transfers in Anchorage if necessary.
