Welcome to Anchorage

Hello, my name is James and I would like to extend a personal invitation to explore my home.

I've lived in Alaska for 40+ years and I was a local high school educator for more than three decades. I'm a tribal citizen, a private pilot, and an experienced tour guide. My goal is to show you a fascinating and slightly less-traveled version of the Last Frontier.

What does that mean? You can expect to see all the big sites and must-see destinations, as well as some out-of-the-way spots that showcase the "Real Alaska." These are unique experiences and local favorites that give you an insight into everyday life at this latitude.

Alaska is magnificent. Everything you've heard about the midnight sun, the dancing auroras, the abundant wildlife, and the natural beauty is true. But I'll help you take your experience one step further. I've designed custom excursions for couples, families, and smaller groups to ensure you make the most of your time in America's 49th state.

If you're looking for an unforgettable personalized encounter with Alaska that will enrich your life, Welcome Anchorage has got you covered. I look forward to meeting you.
