As Alaska's biggest city, this serves as one of the main ports for some of our Alaska cruises. Its location on the south-central part of the state on the Cook Inlet south of Denali National Park makes it a great gateway to adventure and exploration of Alaska's virgin wilderness - an excellent extension of a cruise. While it is usually just a stop on an Adventure Life expedition, you will usually have a chance to enjoy a meal in town and learn a bit more about the lore and legends at the famous Alaska Native Heritage Center, where you can witness dance and cultural displays and exhibits that will immerse you in Alaska's centuries-old indigenous traditions. Experience authentic Alaska at a wilderness lodge such as Tutka Bay Lodge. Contact one of our Alaska trip experts now to start planning your dream trip to Anchorage today!
