Begin your journey through our city from the heart of downtown Anchorage. Then it’s off to the historic Port of Anchorage and Ship Creek area where our city was born. Here you’ll learn about Anchorage’s colorful pioneer history, our early tent city, what life was like here before the age of modern conveniences and how Anchorage got it’s name.

Next we’ll travel past Bootleggers Cove, stopping for a visit to Earthquake Park where you’ll learn about the perils of living on the Pacific Ocean’s “Ring of Fire” and see places where the ground liquefied and massive landslides occurred during the biggest earthquake in US History and 2nd largest earthquake ever recorded worldwide.

Next we’ll take a drive through the Lake Hood airport: the busiest seaplane base in the world - you may see some of Alaska’s finest bush pilots splashland or take to the sky outbound for nearby wilderness areas.

The Chugach Mountains are our last and finest stop. Here you’ll experience Anchorage from the place locals go for stunning vistas and beautiful sunsets. This scenic overlook is home to many Alaskan animals including our favorite, here at Salmon Berry Tours, Alces alces gigas, otherwise known as the Giant or Alaska Moose!  This stop provides beautiful views of the city of Anchorage, the Cook Inlet and the Chugach Mountains.

Our guest had booked the vacation of a lifetime and the ultimate Alaska package. She had to cancel the trip a week before it began due to unfortunate circumstances.

She later told us that within ten minutes of phone time her claim was processed in full. She was very pleased with TravelSafe Insurance's immediate and empathetic response. Getting a refund for her trip was the last thing she wanted to think about, and TravelSafe Insurance took care of her needs and concerns immediately.
