Had an incredible tour to see wildlife at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center and beautiful nature / sunset views!! Brittney was an awesome guide and very knowledgeable about local animals, Alaskan history and culture, and more. Brittney knew so many animals at the conservation center by name, and knew their backstories! Would definitely recommend and look forward to coming back again soon!
Brittney's an amazing tour guide!! She showed me Potter Marsh where I was able to walk on a boardwalk and see a bald eagle perched on a tree and see salmon swimming upstream as the females lay their eggs along the rocks. She also took me to a hidden waterfall of a gem. It was beautiful 🙂. I hope to be able to come back to Alaska again in the very near future so I can have her show me some more sights I missed. She's very knowledgeable and knows the area very well. What's also great is that she and I are from Southern CA! I highly recommend her to all tourists new and returning.
What a great way to spend a few hours “off the beaten path”. Brittany was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and a wonderful guide showing us a few places around Anchorage we would have missed otherwise. Don’t miss the chance to experience this small group tour and learn all you can about the area!

I would recommend going on this tour. Brittney is very knowledgeable and customize each adventure to fit your needs. She takes you to all the hidden gems in and around the city. Even though I was solo on the tour she made it very enjoyable. I would do it again!!! Cheers
Amazing short day tour north of Anchorage! I booked Escaping Anchorage as a gift for my cousin and her husband for their first trip to Alaska! We only had a few hours in Anchorage and the short day tour was a perfect way for them to see the beautiful northern outskirts of Anchorage including their FIRST GLACIER! Our tour guide, Brittany, educated our group along the way on various topics including the geological history of the region, popular historical facts, local legends and where Big Foot prefers to drink beers! 😋
Brittany is such a fun person! You can tell she really loves Alaska and has a soft spot for wildlife. She knew all the names of the rescued animals at the AWCC and shared a lot of facts and history about Alaska, which was fascinating. We appreciated her going the extra mile to point out good restaurants and make sure we had other Anchorage “must sees” on our list.
Exceeded my expectations,
Extremely beautiful town and Brittany is a wonderful tour guide. She knows the area very well and there’s a lot to see. You can do several tours and have completely different experience every time. She offers a very fair price for the amazing views. Thanks Brittany for hospitality! My family and I will be back.
In meeting Brittney you can tell that she is “everything Alaska”. Her knowledge, enthusiasm and love for this amazing state is apparent…and infectious!! Love her energy. Totally enjoyed the Musk Ox Farm tour!! The staff at the farm are so dedicated and knowledgeable…their narrative tour really opened my eyes to these magnificent animals. And…meeting the famous “Luna” Musk Ox???…..priceless!
Fantastic tour with Brittney and Escaping Anchorage. Highly recommended…she is very focused on delivering an exceptional experience. I was looking to spend a few hours seeing the outskirts of town, and Brittney suggested visiting a wildlife refuge/conservation preserve. Learned a bunch about elks, caribou, reindeer, black & brown bears, musk ox, porcupines, eagles, owls, lynx, etc. Safe driving, good conversation, and on schedule. Book now.
Thank-you Escaping Anchorage for such a an unexpected & spontaneous great day!!!
Our flight was delayed for 8 HOURS after our Denali trip, and we definitely thought we were going to spend our last day in AK sitting at a brewery bored….
BUT! We found a business card for Escaping Anchorage daily tours and figured we had nothing to lose!
We called up the owner who cheerfully had an entire day of fun planned for us within the hour- then she came and picked us up in her awesome touring van and drove us to some AMAZING sightseeing locations that couldn’t have been 20 miles out of town. She really knew her stuff and pointed out all kinds of cool wildlife and historical facts for us- she felt like a friend we didn’t know we had in the city showing us all the sneaky local gems that the tourists don’t know about! Lol
After taking us through a gentle forest hike to a waterfall, enjoying a few scenic lookouts and watching whales swimming up the Turnagain arm...We seriously felt like we spent our last day with a friend who showed us the sights we didn’t know to look for!
Thank-you Brittney for such thoughtful and fun service!! Best of luck to you with your small business- we were fans indeed!! :) Highly recommend if you have some time to kill in the city with no car / nothing to do and don’t know where to start!
Good to have this last minute activity in Anchorage. Enjoyed the tour mostly at Alaska WildConservatory Center. Needless to say, Britney’s such a great guide, which made the tourfun-filled and informative at the same time.
Most locations are within Chugach State Park & Palmer Hayflats Wildlife Refuge area. Your admission is included!
