Whether traveling by air, land or sea, visitors can find convenient connections in Anchorage. The city is a gateway airport for many incoming Alaska travelers, and a hub for travel by road and rail. Rent a vehicle or buy a ticket and embark independently, or go with a guide or private tour for some expert insight.

Getting Around Alaska

Anchorage is at the center of air travel inside Alaska, with more intrastate flights than any other place in Alaska. It's also at the center of the state's highway network, whether travelling by car, motorhome, or with a charter or motorcoach tour. The Anchorage depot of the Alaska Railroad is the center of Alaska's train system. Alaska's coastal communities can be reached using the Alaska Marine Highway System via nearby Whittier. And with more pilots per capita than anywhere else, reaching remote communities, lodges, waterways and lands is easy with charter air service.
