Ocean views, mountains, and moose! Our most popular tour, our clients say it’s “the best thing to do in Anchorage!” (Trip Advisor) Enjoy beautiful views, learn about Alaska and look for moose! Great for all biking abilities and ages.
Beginning at Kincaid Park, in the forested hills along Cook Inlet, enjoy a leisurely 9.5 mile guided bike ride along the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail. Along the way, your guide will share the natural and human history of Anchorage and the surrounding area. Kincaid Park is one of the largest parks within Anchorage, allowing you to experience the wild side of Alaska’s largest city as this is home to snowshoe hares, bald eagles, black bears, moose and more! There are plenty of opportunities for photos along the way as this bike ride along the coast offers views of five different mountain ranges. In addition to Kincaid Park, we also visit Earthquake Park, where we bike through some of the lasting devastation from the 1964 Earthquake and end at Westchester Lagoon, a waterfowl sanctuary.
* The vehicle meets the group halfway (Point Woronzof); if there is someone in the group who is only up for 5 miles of biking, join the driver guide for a driving tour the rest of the way.
In the afternoon, join your Hoperator as they escort you off the beaten path to some of the finest breweries in Anchorage. This experience is as much about the history of Alaskan beers, the masters who brew them, and the locals who drink them as it is about tasting the beers themselves.
Enjoy a minimum of 14 beer tastings from 3 different brewery stops, a selection of appetizers at Midnight Sun Brewing Co., roundtrip transportation, and 4 hours of stories you’ll be sure to recount to your friends back home.

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!
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. Fat tire... read more bikes are a ton of fun, more stable than normal mtn biking, and will still get your heart rate going. Views incredible and even got to see some moose! Coordinating the trip was very easy. Nothing but good things to say.
Went this morning with guide Elly who also happens to be an owner of this company. Had an outstanding time. She was well knowlegable about Anchorage history and Alaska... read more in general. We saw two eagles and three Moose, baby, mamma, and a male bull. It was awesome. Today's date is 9/21/2020. A bit chilly but it was do able. Due to Covid and the time of year, it was just me and she didnt cancel. She gave me the full tour experience. I highly recommend this tour for anyone.
Great equipment, wonderful guide, beautiful weather! Elly was a fantastic! Beautiful scenery and a good workout.
Had a great time. Our guide Brandon was excellent. Funny and made sure we didn’t fall too far behind. No moose or bear sightings this trip but I that... read more is because we are kind of jinxes. The scenery is great nice quiet bike ride through the woods. we definitely do this again the next time we come back to Alaska.
Saturday morning tour with my daughter and another couple. Derek was informative and safe. The tour route was terrific (we could see Mt. McKinley) and the equipment was... read more top notch. Our last activity after 10 days in Alaska, not disappointed. A really great way to begin or end your Alaska experience. Thanks Derek! …
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!
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!
