What can I do on an April visit to Anchorage?

Adventure heats up in April, as spring returns to Alaska.

Greet returning gray whales on a day cruise, watch wild residents emerge from winter. Make a splash at the end of ski season, and tour the state’s largest museum. It’s also a great time to hop on a sightseeing flight before the busier summer season. The NYO Games send athletes high in the air at the end of April. You might even catch the final shimmers of the aurora before the midnight sun takes over summer skies.

Flightseeing tours depart from Anchorage year-round to places that, quite literally, will take your breath away. Visit areas of Alaska not accessible by any other means.
