Can’t Forget About the Logistics!

Arriving in Anchorage, Alaska


Juneau may be the capital, but Anchorage is "the city" in Alaska. The population of Alaska is recorded as 741,894 in 2017. Anchorage includes 298,695 residents making it the epicenter of our commerce, tourism and travel destinations.

The Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC) is small compared to larger cities so navigating it will take minimal time.

When you arrive, there are transportation choices such as courtesy hotel shuttles, taxis, or train. When you are ready to fly to the lodge, you will depart from the same airport.

Not all hotels in Anchorage provide a courtesy van to the airport, so please check with the hotel when you make your reservation.

Restaurants in Anchorage


Anchorage is home to some extraordinary local restaurants and boasts menus to please everyone. Most local restaurants feature fresh catches literally from the waters of the Pacific Ocean. In addition, there is a strong "Eat Local" movement in Alaska in which chefs feature local Alaskan produce as frequently as possible.

Since this is the land of the "Midnight Sun" do not worry if you arrive late into Anchorage.

Most establishments stay open much later during the summer months.
