Anchorage Bike and Tram Girdwood Tour

1 reviews

Excursion Overview

This tour is perfect if you are looking to feel like an Anchorage local for a day and explore the great outdoors that surround this Alaskan City. Beginning at Bird Creek, you will follow your local, knowledgeable Alaskan Guide as they take you on a ride along Turnagain Arm. Just an offset from the nationally designated scenic Seward Highway which is one of the most scenic drives, you can observe the beauty of the mountains meeting the ocean. This bike path off Turnagain Arm is one of the most scenic bike rides in the area. There will be ample opportunities to make stops along the way to learn more history and geological features of the area while possibly sighting some of Alaska's amazing wildlife.

After taking in the fresh air, scenery, and wildlife along this ride you will end your ride in Girdwood. The guide will share the history of this old mining town, turned ski town, as you bask in the views of Girdwood Valleys with surrounding mountains and glaciers. After loading up all the equipment the next stop is the Alyeska Resort! Enjoy a view with lunch after you take the Tram up 2,000 feet above the valley floor, where you can take in 360-degree views of the mountains and glaciers around Turnagain Arm. There will be enough time to walk around the Roundhouse Museum, which is on the National Historic Registry.

What a wonderful trip. We stopped often for pictures and I learned so much along the way. We even saw a moose eating in the bushes while riding the tram down to home base. What a great way to see the area!
