Exclusive Alaska Native Heritage Center Excursion

Enjoy an exclusive tour of the Alaska Native Heritage Center for a rich cultural experience in Anchorage! The Hall of Cultures provides exhibits to learn about each of the five major culture groups in Alaska before we head outside for a guided walk around Lake Tiulana. Stroll through six authentic life-sized Native dwellings to learn about the traditional ways of the Athabascan, Inupiaq/St. Lawrence Island Yupik, Yup’ik/Cup’ik, Aleut, Alutiiq, and the Eyak, Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian peoples. This is the only center that fully celebrates these five major culture groups under one roof! Depending on conditions, snowshoes are used for ease of walking during the village site visits. Please be prepared to be outdoors for 1.5 - 2 hours; dress in layers and don’t forget your winter boots, hat and gloves! We will take photos and learn hands on about the different artifacts placed at the village sites, from a story-filled totem to a whale bone arch. We will finish our tour with a film presentation and traditional tea in the theater room.

Please note that your guide's gratuity is not included in the price of your tour. We recommend tipping your guide 10% - 15% of the tour price.

Fairbanks Aurora Dog Sledding

Your tour includes a hotel pick up, guided transportation from Fairbanks to the musher's home trails and return. On this tour, your guide will share stories of the North, the history of dog mushing in the Arctic as well as insight into the Yukon Quest, an international 1,000-mile dog sled race along a trail system linking Alaska and Canada.

Combine the Northern Lights with a dogsledding experience, hot chocolate and a warm campfire for the ultimate intimate Alaskan adventure.

With the length of day shortening in the winter months, we have ample time to experience the solitude and comforting calmness of a inky winter night. Enjoy a peaceful ride down the dark, winding trail listening to the jingle of dog harnesses in motion. If the sky is clear, perhaps you'll see the dancing Aurora Borealis twirling in the night sky. If overcast, you'll find beauty in the intense stillness and magical ambiance of gently falling snowflakes. We will start the tour off by introducing you to the mushing guides and getting you properly outfitted for a night out under the stars. Once the team is all suited up, we will hit the trails in search of the Aurora Borealis. We'll set up camp at roughly our half-way mark of the tour, start a fire and get out the food & drink. During this time you can photograph the northern Alaska night sky or just sit back and take it all in.

Enjoy 5 complimentary digital images provided by an Aurora photographer at the trail.

Fairbanks Winter Dog Sledding

Nothing says "Alaska" more than dog mushing! Sled dogs are deeply rooted in Alaska history as hunters, freight haulers, and companions. Mushing is more than just popular—it's Alaska's official sport!
For a taste of the real Alaska, Salmon Berry will transport you out to the a remote area of the Chena River where you'll have the opportunity to meet the dogs and experience their excitement as they power down the trail. This is an interactive tour that includes handling of the huskies and teaching you how to harness and hook up a dog team. Once the teams are ready, we mush amongst black spruce and white birch along winding trails that take us through the Chena River Recreation Area. Keep your eyes peeled for Alaska Moose - the local Willow trees are staple of their diet!

After an Alaskan sized lunch, continue on to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, a rescue and rehabilitation organization for injured and orphaned animals. There we visit with orphaned grizzly bears, injured eagles, families of elk and bison, and many more Alaskan wild animals. Then we are off to get up close and personal with Portage Glacier on the 1-hour cruise through Portage Lake. An on-board expert will share facts and stories about the land, the local flora and fauna, and glaciers of the Portage Valley.

Matanuska Glacier Walk - Year Round

Try a local favorite! The Matanuska Glacier is a stable 27 mile long river of ancient ice. Thousands of years old, this massive glacier is tucked up into the Matanuska Valley. You will spend 2 hours on the glacier with your glacier guide learning how the glacier has formed and shaped the landscape in the Matanuska Susitna Valley. Explore blue meltwater pools, the ice formations and deep crevasses that make up the Matanuska Glacier. Walking on ice is slippery fun so our guests are equipped with a helmet, walking stick and cramp ons for your shoes. We require our guests to bring sturdy footwear and suggest bringing an extra pair of socks. Don't be surprised that your shoes get filthy with glacial flour. This glacial till is finely ground rock the glacier has created - makes for great facials!

This tour does require walking for the tour length of 1-1/2 to 2 hours. See photos below for good look at the terrain!

Of course, our fully-guided transportation includes a pick up at your hotel in Anchorage as well as water and snacks in the touring vehicle. We will also stop for lunch where we will overlook the glacier while enjoying some yummy Alaskan fare.
