Need a hike with a snack? Go Hike Alaska’s Downtown Walking Food Tour & Nature Walk Combo starts with Alaskan Sights & Bites Anchorage Walking Tour featuring local history and small bites from various restaurants downtown. Then, guests head out for an afternoon of fun in Chugach State Park with Go Hike’s Flora & Fauna Nature Walk.

Something fishy is going on at Anchorage Trolley Tours – it’s a new tour called the Salmon Express. This narrated tour begins in downtown Anchorage and travels to the nearby William Jack Hernandez Sport Fish Hatchery where participants can walk among 100 rearing tanks to learn about the lifestyle of Alaska’s salmon. A foot path outside the facility provides access to Ship Creek, Alaska’s largest sport fishing hatchery, where adult salmon can be seen swimming in the creek.

Experience one of the most scenic areas in Southcentral Alaska and take a shuttle to Eklutna Lake with Lifetime Adventures. Once there, visitors can explore numerous hiking trails, kayak a glacier-fed lake, or hop on a bike to cover even more ground. Passengers are picked up in front of the Egan Civic & Convention Center in downtown Anchorage for the 40-minute ride to Eklutna. Daily rides are available from June 1 through Sept. 1, or by appointment in late May and September.
