“Outstanding tour in every way!” This was one of the most enjoyable excursions
of our cruise vacations.” ~ TripAdvisor
Explore outside of Anchorage and be a local for a day! Join a local, knowledgeable Alaskan guide for a ride along Turnagain Arm beginning at Bird Creek, a popular fishing spot when the salmon are running. The bike path follows the Turnagain Arm next to the nationally designated scenic Seward Highway. Dramatic views of mountains coming right down to the water help make this one of the most scenic drives and bike rides in the area. Along the way are many spots to stop and learn about the history and interesting geologic features, from how the area was formed by glaciers and earthquakes, to riding on what used to be where the original railroad tracks were laid.
You’ll end your ride in Girdwood; originally a mining town, turned popular ski town. Your guide will share with you the history of the area as you take in views of Girdwood Valley’s surrounding mountains and glaciers. Ride the Alyeska Tram up to 2,300 feet and have lunch with a view! Take in 360-degree views of the valley, hanging glaciers and Turnagain Arm while visiting the historic Round House Museum.
This tour was excellent. I highly recommend it when in Anchorage. Elly and Frankie were great. They picked us up right next to the Anchorage visitors center and took us... read more to the park. It was a group of 6. My family of 4 and 2 other ladies. The bikes were very nice comfort bikes. The trail was beautiful. We saw 2 moose and 2 bears. Elly led the tour and the pace was casual. Most of the trip is downhill. We stopped several times to see things along the trail. Elly was knowledgeable and friendly.
My wife has not ridden a bike much in the past several years and had no problems.
Overall a great tour.
We enjoyed a wonderful tour with our college aged kids. The guides were knowledgeable and accommodating. They even modified the tour to meet our limited time. Highly recommend!

The pacing was perfect for my family, the scenery was beautiful, and having lunch at the top... read more of the Alyeska tram line was a great reward for our efforts.

Ellie made sure I had... read more the proper fit on the bike before starting and brought me on a trail that had 800 feet of elevation gain with very little human activity. Those fat tires really helped us clamber over some rocky parts of the trail!! Ellie made sure we stopped to view wildlife and pointed out features such as remnants of glacial activity in the valley. Well worth every penny as I could not have done that on my own!! -- I highly recommend a tour on a fat tire bike with Alaska Trail Guides.
Our family had such a good ride with Elly @ Alaska Trail Guides. The ride itself was beautiful, the Chugach State Park is gorgeous. The bikes are so... read more fun to ride. We spotted a moose eating right beside the trail, it was very cool! Elly was an awesome guide, very knowledgeable about the area and patient when we fell just a little behind. She was also prepared with water and snacks. Great ride for families and we highly recommend it!
Perfect way to begin my trip in Anchorage! I was so impressed by my guide’s knowledge...about everything. I learned about plants, wildlife, geological events — but also great tips and... read more recommendations for where to eat, hike, and watch the bore tide. We narrowly missed seeing a moose. When I come back with my family, this will be our first event.
Frankie and Elly took me on a Kincaid Park adventure, where we did a little single track, got a little muddy and even saw a moose. Everything I wanted in... read more my first biking experience in Alaska. They are fun to be around and knowledgeable of bikes and the area. They will ride at your pace and just want you to have the best bike riding experience. My next trip to Alaska, I plan to book the glacier bike riding tour. I can’t wait.
I highly recommend taking this tour. Ellie was a terrific guide and a very nice and genuine person. The tour was great fun, and relaxing biking through Kincaid Park... read more with the beautiful scenery and the weather was perfect. We made multiple stops throughout the course and Ellie told us stuff about the area. We also got to stop and see a mama moose with her two babies - such a beautiful sight. If you are worried the biking may be too strenuous - don't - it was mostly downhill or flat land. There is only one hill really and you can walk the bike up if you choose. I will definitely do this tour again if i find myself in Anchorage, AK again!!
Had a great experience on the Chugach tour with Elly. She was a fantastic guide, would recommend to anyone visiting the area for the first time like myself.
