Things to do in Alaska
Anchorage - experience the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center in Portage
Alaska is so massive and so remote, that it is almost impossible to see much of the beautiful wildlife, the state has to offer. This is why a visit to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Centre is an absolute must, if you are visiting Portage. A great favourite of many visitors are the brown bears but all patriots love to see the Bald Eagles flying wild and free.
Anchorage - go exploring at Eklutna Lake
Eklutna Lake is around eight miles long and offers wonderful opportunities and options for those that enjoy outdoor activities. Whether you like long hikes through the woods, or prefer ATV tours, the area has plenty to offer, including fantastic scenery. There are four major hiking trails, two of which are overnight trails, where walkers can stay overnight in log cabins. Cycling and kayaking are particularly popular in the region, and there are some excellent, fun trips available for both of these activities.
Anchorage - go fishing and catch a big halibut
Some of the best halibut inshore fishing in the world can be found at Whittier, which is just outside of Anchorage. Fishing enthusiasts regularly pull out prize fish of between 30 – 40 pounds, with the very occasional one weighing as much as 100 pounds. Whilst you are waiting for the fish to bite, you can enjoy the costal and glacial scenery. Once your catch has been reeled in, it can be prepared for smoking or freezing, and then if you wish, shipped back to your home.
Anchorage - take a seaplane tour at Lake Hood
Much of Alaska would be unreachable if it were not for the services offered by seaplanes, and their sometimes eccentric pilots who manage to land their aircraft on seemingly impossibly small stretches of water. The seaplane base at Lake Hood is possibly the busiest in the world as it provides courier services to other towns in the state, as well as ferrying visitors to remote cabins and fishing lodges, plus offers day trips to see the outstanding scenery of the region.
Anchorage - try salmon fishing at Ship Creek
There are not many places in the world where you can fish for two different species of Salmon in the same year, but Ship Creek in Anchorage is one of them. From May to July, the beautiful and impressive King Salmon swim up water, and make for exciting fishing sport, as some are around 40 pounds in weight. The smaller, but equally challenging, Coho, or Silver Salmon season is between June and August, and even these can reach up to 12 pounds in weight.
Fairbanks - escape to Musk Ox Farm
It is surprising to learn that the softest wool in the world comes from such a large animal, but the fleece of the Musk Ox is sought after worldwide. The Musk Farm at Fairbanks, is maintained by the University of Alaska and offers 45 minute tours of the musk oxen, caribou and reindeer, so that visitors can learn all about these, intersting animals. After the tour, you may want to go and purchase some souvenirs, from the well stocked, gift shop.
Fairbanks - have a family adventure day at Pioneer Park
Pioneer Park in Fairbanks is not a theme park, but is instead a collection of tourist activities that can keep you entertained for a week. The park has everything from a replica gold mine and sluice gate, to the ships and railway engines that brought settlers and gold miners to the city, over its long turbulent history. It is also home to the northern most 36 hole, mini golf in America, as well as the world’s 2nd longest wooden hull ship, still in existence, being just over 200 metres in lenght.
Fairbanks - learn about local history at the University of Alaska Museum
The history of the Alaskan region is told in the Fairbanks located Museum of the North. Here visitors can fimd out about how the region evolved, due to the work and affect of glaciers and rivers, as well as the culture, customs and artworks of the local indigenous tribes. The museum contains Alaska’s largest gold display, and makes excellent use of visual and audio techniques to ensure vistors have a unique, insight into this fascinating region.
Fairbanks - say hi to Santa Claus at his home
Everyone knows that Santa lives at the North Pole, but what they may not know is that he lives at Santa Claus House in Fairbanks, and has done since he built his new house there in 1952. Ever since then he has been sending children letters, encouraging good behaviour, and he loves to meet and see them, when they come to his home. Santa’s home is not just a house, but also a local community store, so feel free to drop in and say hi.
Fairbanks - view the amazing ice sculptures at the Fairbanks Ice Museum
Located in the Lacey Street Theatre, the Fairbanks Ice Museum is home to both amazing ice sculptures and carvings, that have been created by local artistes. There are also multimedia displays, showing how many of the ice sculptures were created. Kept at a chilly 20 F degrees, to preserve the 40,000 pounds of ice. The museum is open every day from 10am to 9pm and carvings can be viewed through a warm, glass, auditorium.
