Bike where the ocean meets the mountains and dine above the ordinary! “Outstanding tour in every way!” This was one of the most enjoyable excursions
of our cruise vacations.” ~ TripAdvisor
Explore the wild side of Anchorage and be a local for a day! Join a local, knowledgeable Alaskan guide for a bike 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 state. 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.
What an amazing tour! Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a beautiful guided tour along Anchorages Coast. You get the history while also spotting Moose along the way.
Carl was excellent! 2 hours is not a lot of time, but lesson was catered to our goals, laid back, and definitely progressed our abilities. would categorize ourselves... read more as intermediate to advanced and we all learned something.
We have two teenagers one with Down syndrome. We were all able to enjoy this trail ride. The trail is paved (absolutely no traffic it’s paved through woods)... read more and flat and goes a long way (we did not get through half of it) You ride as far as you like and then head back. We saw a moose and a mooseling too. Guides handle all bikes and equipment so it was easy and very doable for any level of biker!! Huge thanks to Frankie and Elie for making this happen for our family!
We had a great time riding the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail. Our guide was Caitlin and she really made the bike ride fun! If we did this ride again we... read more would definitely ask for Caitlin. She is exceptional.
I highly recommend taking this tour!
We saw a moose along the trail and stopped for photos (I got video too because he was eating). I'm so... read more glad I got to see one in the wild. It was the highlight of my trip.
We had 2 guides, Ellie who led the group and Stephanie who rode in the back with me. It had been about 30 years since I had ridden (FYI- practice biking before you go if you are rusty at it so you don't embarrass yourself...yup...I embarrassed myself!).
Stephanie was helpful, encouraging, and extremely patient. I really appreciated her staying behind and letting me know what was coming up on the trail such as curves and slopes.
Ellie stopped at various points along the way. As our guide, she shared information about Alaska that was really interesting. Both of these wonderful woman are first class. If you do anything while in Anchorage, this needs to be on your list!
Derrick was a knowledgeable guide who took great care of us. He and the van driver, Ellie, made sure that our bikes and helmets fit, had water bottles, and that... read more we knew how to change gears etc. before we took off. The trails were immaculate, safe, and easy to ride (only one somewhat challenging climb). Derrick made sure we were all good with the speed. There were 10 in our group from wide age range. When we saw a smallish black bear on the trail (doesn’t happen often they said), Derrick had us dismount, remain quiet, put the bike between us and the bear, and then he retrieved his bear spray and was ready to use it. He didn’t need to. The bear calmly meandered over the ridge. Besides that excitement, Derrick stopped frequently to explain about the history, geography, flora and fauna of the area. At the end, after about 9.5 miles, Ellie was there with the van, a snack, and more water. Great ride in a beautiful setting!
Great and knowledgeable guides. Very patient with newbies and challenged the fit. Thanks for a fun time. Recommend to all.
I cannot recommend Alaska Trail Guides highly enough. I took the Kenai Peninsula tour with Elly and was impressed and delighted throughout. The pre-ride coordination and communication were top notch... read more and the ride itself exceeded expectations. Elly shared tons of knowledge about the greater Anchorage area and provided great company for the ride down the Seward Highway. In fact, she told me about a trail that I hiked the following day for one of the most awe-inspiring experiences of my life. The ride on the Peninsula was breathtaking (in a good way!) for its views and the experience of riding the trail. I am so glad I found this service and truly appreciated the expertise of Elly to allow me a sample of Alaska on two wheels!
