Recommendations from the Local Arrangements Committee

Here are our top choices for exploring Anchorage and beyond. Some activities require no planning at all, some can be reserved directly with the operator, and for all others, we have worked with Logistics LLC, an Anchorage company with a long track record in Alaska tourism, to provide a convenient one-stop booking experience specifically for Transducers 2015 attendees at favorable group rates. The expert staff at Logistics LLC can book and customize your activities for the best Alaska experiences.

Exploring Anchorage and Surroundings
Take a casual ride on the Anchorage Trolley City Tour, hike or jog along the Anchorage Coastal Trail while watching local wildlife, or learn about the history at the Alaska Native Heritage Center; or explore the local cuisine in one of the many restaurants, bars and pubs that are all within walking distance from the conference center.

Short Trips from Anchorage for Your Daily Adventure
Choose your mode of transportation and start exploring, whether on foot, by dog sled, car, train, ATV, float plane or helicopter. Some of the most spectacular views in Alaska are just a few hours away from Anchorage.

Extended Trips for Once-in-a-lifetime Experiences
Float with otters on a sea kayak, stay at a remote fishing lodge, or mingle with world-class climbers in Talkeetna at the base of Denali. Spend a few days to experience the largest state of the U.S.

Traveling to Anchorage
Make your travel to Alaska part of your adventure. Flying is not the only option! Take a cruise through the Inside Passage from Vancouver B.C., drive the Alaska Highway across the Northern Rockies and the Yukon, or take the Alaska Marine Highway.
