Activities at Alaska Birch Cottages

Summer Time

With almost endless daylight, the summer is a perfect season to enjoy the scenery, whether hiking, boating, fishing, flight-seeing, or taking a bus tour of the Valley.  Golfing is available in Palmer or at Settlers Bay Golf Course in Wasilla.  The kids will have fun feeding reindeer at the Reindeer Farm in Palmer, watching the musk ox at the Musk Ox Farm, or discovering the history of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race from Wasilla to Nome at the Iditarod Sled Dog Race Headquarters & Museum.   is a fascinating Independence Mine renovation of a 1930' gold mine with the dorm houses and various work buildings which gives a vivid peek into some of the history of our State and the kind of hardy people who made it.  Colony Days takes place at the beginning of June and the Alaska State Fair at the end of August.  The area also boasts many U-Pick Farms for fresh produce.

Winter Time

Cross-country skiing, snow machining, snowshoeing,  ice-fishing.  The Iditarod Race Official Start is from Wasilla at the beginning of March (snow conditions permitting).  The ceremonial start is from Anchorage the previous day.  Or stay with us for Fur Rondy during February.

The longer winter nights can also provide an excellent opportunity to see the Northern Lights; but, this is not something we can guarantee!

You can be as active or relaxed as you desire in your home away from home.
