The Alaska Native Heritage Center (ANHC) is a living cultural center located in Anchorage, Alaska that promotes active observance of Alaska Native culture and traditions. As the only statewide cultural and education center dedicated to celebrating all cultures and heritages, ANHC serves as a statewide resource for Alaska Natives from birth until Elder, and we support and celebrate Alaska Natives from all of Alaska’s Native cultures, including Iñupiaq, St. Lawrence Island Yupik, Athabascan, Eyak, Haida, Tsimshian, Tlingit, Unangax̂, Alutiiq/Sugpiaq, Yup’ik, and Cup’ik. Through permanent collections, life-sized village sites, and immersive educational programs, ANHC creates experiences that promote understanding of our rich and diverse Cultures.
Photography tours and workshops led by experienced professional Alaska photographers and instructors. We offer year-round sunset photo tours around the Anchorage area as well as custom tours and multi-day workshops in unique Alaska settings, including glacier and bear photography trips.
Our passion is making our guests feel comfortable and connected in the northern Alaskan forest that we call home. We are a small-scale, family-run business focused on providing authentic experiences for our guests. We offer single or multi-day adventures dog sledding, skiing, and snowshoeing. We take only private groups of 1-4 people and customize the experience to each group’s desires to create unforgettable adventures.
We strive to live as close as we can to the place we’re in. We hunt, fish and grow much of our food for us and our dog family. We feed our guests healthy, homemade and local food. We do our best to use technology that doesn’t insulate us from a direct experience with our environment. On a trip with us, you will travel on trails we have cut, stay in tents we have sewn or cabins we have built and use gear that is made from and indigenous to the area we’re traveling in. We live in the place we guide, and we want to make sure that it is still just as beautiful and bountiful when we’re in the ground and future generations are tromping around.
