Get out of the city and deeper into the Alaskan wilderness than is typical on a sightseeing tour. This small-group tour takes you to Chugach National Forest, Beluga Point, Portage Glacier, and more to spot brown bears, wolves, bison, and belugas. Enjoy live commentary and learn about the unique landscapes of Alaska from your expert guide.

My wife and I visited the Native Heritage Center on 9/12/2020. The dance group was good. To me, the best thing about the dance presentation was the information given between selections. Note: these are not professional dancers. Most members of the group are teenagers who are learning about their heritage, and they do a great job. The tour of the native dwellings was the highlight of our visit. Our guides were a pair of teenagers, but their presentation and their knowledge of the subject rivaled that of the best teachers I've seen in my life (I spent 40 years as a teacher in public and private education). We visited the artifact displays inside the building after touring the dwellings outside. I really recommend that others do the same because the information I got on the tour made the displays far more meaningful. I would certainly recommend a visit to the Alaskan Native Heritage Center to anyone who is visiting Anchorage and who is interested in the history of Alaska.

I was glad the museum was open, using all safeguards. I enjoyed the dancing, storytelling and demonstration of native games. The examples of various types of housing and tour about different communities was interesting. Finally, they have some exhibits and films that add to your understanding of the diversity of cultures in the area. A terrific way to spend a rainy day!

Well worth the stop. All the guide are native Alaska young adults from different tribes and cultures, so you get a lot of fist hand knowledge and experience.
