Discover Alaska like never before!
Day 1 – Your morning nonstop flight from Salt Lake City will have you arriving in Anchorage ready for a week of excitement in the “Land of the Midnight Sun.” We will meet up with a local tour guide who will accompany the group and provide narration along our journey each day. This afternoon we will be treated with a city tour of Anchorage featuring: Lake Hood where 190+ floatplanes take off and land daily, Earthquake Park to learn about the 1964 earthquake, and the historic downtown area. There will be time for lunch on your own downtown. Later this afternoon we will enjoy a visit to the Alaska Native Heritage Center where you will have a chance to learn about the history and culture of Alaska. Later, we will check into our hotel the Anchorage Marriott.
Day 2 –
After breakfast we will board our deluxe motorcoach for a scenic drive south to the the coastal community of Seward. Along the way be sure to keep your eyes open for Dall sheep or black bears on the hillsides, as well as beluga whales in the Turnagain Arm (branch of the Cook inlet). Before arriving in Seward we will stop at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center where you will have a chance to see Alaska’s wildlife up close and personal.
You’ll fall in love with this small coastal town nestled between the mountains and the ocean. Our comfortable accommodations for the next two nights will be at the Seward Windsong Lodge. (breakfast included)
Day 3 – Today here in Seward we embark on a scenic cruise through Kenai Fjords National Park. Our cruise is filled with breathtaking views of glaciers, and offers great wildlife watching opportunities for all manner of marine life. Steller sea lions and Puffins can be seen on the rocky islands, and harbor seals are often spotted on ice flows and in the bays. Sea otters bob on the surface, porpoises leap beside the boat, and orca, minke, gray and humpback whales are all frequently sighted. The highlight of the day is a stop at the base of a tidewater glacier in the hopes of seeing it “calve” – shedding gigantic chunks of ice into the ocean with a thunderous crash.
Today you get to experience Summer Solstice in Alaska – the land of the Midnight Sun. How exciting! (breakfast and lunch included today)
Day 4 – After breakfast this morning, we will board our deluxe motorcoach for a beautiful drive north to the quaint town of Talkeetna. On our way we will enjoy a visit to local Musher’s Kennel where you will have a chance to meet an Iditarod Sled Dog Team, and hear tales from the trail. We will continue to Talkeetna arriving in the late afternoon.
The historic village of Talkeetna has spectacular views of North America’s tallest peak, Denali. Talkeetna has an outstanding panoramic view of the Alaska Range that can be enjoyed and photographed from several locations. You will have the remainder of the day to explore on your own, or to purchase an optional activity such as an ATV tour or fishing. Or you can sit near the crackling fireplace in the lodge’s great room and relax – after all, you’re on vacation. Whether you visit an art gallery, gift shop, or restaurant, you’ll notice the friendly frontier hospitality. We will spend the night at the Talkeetna Lodge. (breakfast included)
Day 5 – We will have a leisurely morning in this beautiful setting. Later, we will be transferred to the Talkeetna Rail Depot where we will board a deluxe dome railcar for a scenic train ride north to Denali National Park. Much of your relaxing ride will be along the Susitna River. You’ll have chances along the way for great photo shots of Mt. Denali.
Upon arrival in Denali we will visit the Denali Visitor Center before checking into our accommodations at the Denali Park Village. You will have the rest of the day at your leisure to explore on you own. (breakfast and lunch included today)
