  • What I read about the coop made me believe it was more than it was. It was 1 room and a very small selection of their work. Nothing to write home about as an attraction, but a worthy endeavor.  more »

  • These products are made from an animal. Eventually these animals may be endangered or extinct due to the hunting that goes on to collect the fur from these animals. I do not support this at all. Would give zero stars if possible.
  • No one offers better Qivuit products! This is THE place to go.
  • As a travel agent: This is a very interesting co-op where over 200 Native Alaskan woman get together and knit scarves. Since 1969, qiviut.-hand knitted scarves are made from soft Ox fur and sold at this corner building. They were a bit pricey ($180) but very soft. I already have one from Iceland so I didn't purchase one here. It's great to support the hand knitted co-op and they have a few patterns but each scarf is unique like a snowflake.

Where to stay in Anchorage

Anchorage hotels increase room rates during the height of the tourist season, but you can visit the area economically any time of year by choosing a budget-friendly bed and breakfast or small inn. The city's downtown area contains the priciest rooms; most are offered by chain hotels. You can find less expensive rooms at a cluster of hotels located in Midtown, a largely commercial neighborhood with a good selection of restaurants and shops.
