Join our National Park Rangers as they tell the stories of early explorers who came to Alaska. England's Captain James Cook and his voyage to the arctic in search of the elusive Northwest Passage will be highlighted in this 45 minute program. As you walk the streets of beautiful downtown Anchorage, you will learn about the lives of early Alaska Natives, discuss symbols used in totem poles, touch a sea otter pelt, and visit the Captain Cook statue at Resolution Park. Stunning views of Cook Inlet and Mt. McKinley (weather permitting) are highlights of the tour. This is an easy walk with several stops suitable for all visitors. The tour is given twice daily during the summer season, rain or shine. Umbrellas are provided. For more information, please visit alaskacenters.gov.
