Unique experiences like landing on a glacier (there are over 100,000 which span 5 per cent of the state), taking the rail road and embarking on a cruise are all on the radar of the adventurous traveller.The Alasksa Railroad’s Aurora Winter Train travels from Anchorage through the Mat-Su Valley, with views of panoramic vistas, wildlife, river valleys and rocky gorges. There are also events to entice visitors year-round, including the World Ice Art Championships in February and March , Running with the Reindeer in March and for 2016, the National Park Service Centennial.Agents were also informed of the availability of tools to help guide their selling of destinations such as Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city.Go back to the e-newsletter >last_img
