If you wish to arrive one or more days early and explore Anchorage on your own, WhaleCoast Alaska can arrange for you to stay with an Anchorage host. Lodging, breakfast, and a ride to/from the downtown area are included. For lunch, dinner, and activities, you are on your own. You can visit a museum, explore a botanical garden or bird sanctuary, hike a trail, rent a bike, or simply relax and enjoy the view. Your host can offer suggestions. Please note that space is very limited for this Early Anchorage Stay. This option is only available to guests arriving before 11:00 pm. Also, we have arranged a special rate with the Anchorage Motel 6 for the early arriving guests for whom we aren’t able to provide homestay lodging. Motel 6 has recently been remodeled, and they provide a courtesy shuttle from the airport. To get their special rate, call 907-677-8000, and let them know that you are a WhaleCoast Alaska guest.
