“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.
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!
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!
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!!
This was a must do adventure for anyone visiting Anchorage....went for a Fall tour with girlfriends and we had a wonderful time. Our tour guide,Elly, was very knowledgeable about Anchorage... read more and the terrain. We did a nine mile tour, we are in our late 60s with limited experience biking. We had no problems at all -it was so much fun.

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.

My wife has not ridden a bike much in the past several years and had no problems.
Overall a great tour.
We would highly recommend this tour! Elly did a great job leading the pack, stopping to provide photo ops and sharing fun facts as we traveled the trails. Half of... read more our crew live in Anchorage and were able to check out new trails and a new activity.
