When you want to immerse yourself in the raw, untamed beauty of Alaska, you can fly from Portland to Anchorage in about four hours. Whether you've been imagining yourself whale watching from icy shores or salmon fishing in a sparkling stream, your journey begins when you take a car, train, bus or taxi to Portland International Airport (PDX).
Established in 1914 as a railroad construction headquarters, Anchorage has evolved into a vibrant city against a stunning, mountainous backdrop. During your stay, you can take a train at the Alaska Railroad Depot and enjoy a unique way to experience the region's gorgeous wildlife and landscape. The Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center displays well-curated exhibits featuring the area's history and the Native Americans' way of life. Potter Marsh Bird Sanctuary has elevated boardwalks that carry visitors through a stunning marsh teeming with fascinating flora and fauna.
You can rent a car after you land at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC) or take a taxi, public bus or hotel shuttle into the city. The region's climate remains cool throughout the seasons with temperature averages that range between 30 and 44 degrees Fahrenheit. The Great Alaska Beer and Barley Wine Festival, the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race Ceremonial Start and the Festival of Flowers are just a sample of the many events that take place in the region each year.
