What is the best way to get there if we are staying in anchorage?

Response from AlpineAirAlaska | Property representative |
Hello! The best way to get to Girdwood is to rent a car. This gives you the flexibility to explore the surrounding areas as well as our tour. There are also private shuttles that offer transportation to Girdwood.
Do they have tours in September 2017. Please tell me yes for my bucket list:)

Hi! We do offer flightseeing tours in September!
