Anchorage, Alaska: Anchorage Away!

13 07 2010

Talk glaciers, totems and Alaskan king crab in this spirited American city.

Tackle Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, a winding path that ascends ten miles from downtown Anchorage to Kincaid Park with views of Mt. McKinley–North America’s tallest peak–ships dawdling in Cook’s Inlet, and the occasional moose, whale, or eagle.

Head south along Seward Highway to Portage Glacier, the dramatic geological product of Father Time and Mother Nature. This mammoth hanging glacier and its offspring lake are wondrous to see. After, warm up at the cozy Glacier Brewhouse, where you can knock back a Honey Maibock (or a Coke) while waiting for your wood spit-grilled meat, king crab legs, or herb-crusted fish.

Thrill-seekers, spend a day whitewater rafting in the smooth rapids of Matanuska River or the not-so-smooth white crests of Lion Head. Whether you’re in for a peaceful float down the river or a white-knuckle splash ‘n soak adventure, Anchorage delivers.

This fantastic adventure and so much more are all available at Soens Travel Aventures.
