Coastal Trail Bike Tour in Anchorage Details

Our Anchorage Coastal Cruise Bike Tour allows you to experience the wild side of Alaska’s largest city on a leisurely 9.5-mile guided ride.

The tour begins with a ride through the urban wilderness of Kincaid Park, over 1,500 acres of forested hills nestled on the coastline where moose, bears, bald eagles, and more are often spotted. Start your ride surrounded by wilderness and history as this once was a Cold War Nike Hurcles Missle site. 

In addition to Kincaid Park, we also visit Earthquake Park. Here, we bike through some of the lasting devastations from the 1964 Earthquake. The ride then ends at Westchester Lagoon, a waterfowl sanctuary.

This Anchorage coastal bike trail offers views of five different mountain ranges, so there are plenty of opportunities for incredible photos along the way as your guides shares fascinating natural and human history. 

NOTE: This is not an electric bike tour. 

Chugach State Park Hiking Tour Details

Get out, get active and take a hike! Walk through boreal forests and glaciated valleys, see where salmon spawn, and spot wildlife like bears, moose, and birds. On this moderate hike, your guide will share a vast knowledge of flora, fauna, and geology. Visit one of Chugach State Park’s best waterfalls. Tucked back in a gorge, listen for the roar of the water through the canyon. Bedrock outcroppings with cascading water make for some of the best photography opportunities. While you don’t need prior hiking experience, you should be comfortable walking 5 miles over several hours.
