Big Alaska Travel Auction

amsterdam 2012 Roy Neese

Big Alaska Travel Auction

Thinking what to do with your visiting friends and family this year?  Or maybe want to do something a little new?

Join us for the Big Alaska Travel Auction May 2nd, 3rd and 4th from 7 to 10 p.m. on Alaska Public Television. Alaska Public Media is partnering with Visit Anchorage to bring the finest travel, hospitality and outdoor activities to you for this live auction.

Tune in to bid on great opportunities such as ATV tours, hotel getaways, fishing expeditions, glacier dogsled tours, airline tickets, zipline tours, rafting trips, wildlife cruises and so much more.   Photo by Roy Neese

How to Bid?  

When you see a piece announced on air for bidding, call us immediately:

  • 550-8484 in Anchorage
  • 1-800-478-5256 outside Anchorage, toll-free

We have a phone bank of 8 to take your call and bid with you. If you don’t get through, hang up and keep trying — many times bidders on the phone will drop out as prices rise, thus freeing a phone line for a new bidder.

NOTE: Our TV signal is slightly delayed from actual events in the studio — up to several seconds. Therefore, turn down your TV’s volume while on the phone and simply listen to and talk with your bidding operator. Listen to your phone helper not to your television. They will keep you informed of current bids.

If you are the final high bidder, you will receive a phone call back within one hour to take your payment information.  You will be able to pick up items here in the studio starting Monday, May 6th or items can be mailed to you (with an additional fee) within a week.
