Lake Hood Air Harbor

Anchorage, Alaska

Need to get anywhere inside Alaska’s road-less, rugged bush country? You’ll need to board one of the 1,000 seaplanes at the Lake Hood Seaplane Base to get there. The largest and busiest seaplane base in the world handles an average of 160 to190 flights a day -- and a staggering 800 on a busy summer day. Embark upon a watery takeoff from the Anchorage lake harbor for flight seeing, fishing and adventure in Alaska’s wilderness.
