  • With a bit of history thrown in. The prices are reasonable, we saw the knives and sets sold elsewhere in Anchorage for more money. We enjoyed going behind the factory to watch the salmon fishermen mor...  more »

  • Just a shop selling the original ULU knife and an array of souvenirs. Have to say, is better value than the souvenir shops in the town, but would have liked maybe more than just a shop. Also, purchase...  more »

  • Loved it!! We will be back to order something Friday and mail it home.
  • Cute gift shop also fun to watch ulus be made
  • We should have realized this was a bust when all of the men were sitting outside on the porch. All nearby parking was paid ($2 or $5, depending on the lot), no blades cut on site, mostly just assembling and laser engraving on the handle. Gift shop had all the same stuff you've seen in other gift shops. If are in Anchorage on a Saturday, skip Ulu and head to the outdoor market just up the hill -- that was much more interesting and well worth the paid parking.
  • Fun place to shop and really nice helpful staff.
  • Great products and service!

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.
