Departure date

The below itinerary is only a suggestion, we offer tailor-made personal service and solutions to help you plan your perfect vacation.

Day 1 Anchorage Arrival Upon arrival in Anchorage transfer at your own cost to your hotel, the rest of the day is at leisure to enjoy the sights.

Day 2 Floatplane to Redoubt Bay Bear Viewing Enjoy a half day guided day tour with the opportunity to view Alaska’s black and brown bears in their natural habitat. You’ll fly by float-plane, 70 miles southwest of Anchorage to the entrance of Lake Clark Wilderness Preserve, site of Redoubt Bay Lodge to view resident brown bears up close from one of the lodge’s covered pontoon boats. (Lunch is included today)

Day 3 Anchorage to Girdwood – Glacier Dog Sled Helicopter Tour This morning, board a motorcoach to Girdwood. This scenic journey takes you along Cook Inlet and into the glacier-filled Chugach Mountains. This is where your next adventure begins. A helicopter ride, a glacier landing & dog sledding on snow in the summer in Alaska... there is no better way to see Alaska than from the air, and there’s no better Alaskan activity than dog sledding. Returning to the heliport you will be transfered just up the road to Alyeska Resort. The rest of the day is at leisure to explore this scenic alpine resort and we have included air tram tickets for the ride to the peak of Alyeska.

Day 4 Girdwood to Seward (Coach) Mid day join your coach for a short drive to your stop for lunch then on to visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Centre, which provides care and rehabilitation for injured and orphaned wildlife. Here you can safely get close, observe, and photograph some of Alaska’s land animals: moose, bison, elk, deer, caribou, bears, muskox, small mammals, and birds of prey. Lastly, stop at Exit Glacier if time allows. An eight mile drive off the main road reveals a spectacular vantage point; a short and easy walk provides a view of a magnificent glacier. (Lunch is included today)

Day 5 Northwestern Fjord Cruise (Cruise) Today we have arranged for you to take an all-day Kenai Fjords National Park Cruise. Travel farther into Kenai Fjords National Park than with any other cruise and visit the magnificent Northwestern Fjord, home to three amazing tidewater glaciers and numerous alpine glaciers. The Park boasts abundant wildlife, alpine and tidewater glaciers and breathtaking scenery. (A continental breakfast & deli-style lunch is included onboard)

Day 6 Seward to Talkeetna (Coach) Mid-morning, board a scheduled motorcoach to Talkeetna - your driver will give you some history of the area along the way. Stop in Anchorage and have approximately 90 minutes for lunch (on your own, not included) before continuing to Talkeetna.

Day 7 Talkeetna to Denali National Park Entrance (Rail) This morning take the Denali Star, the Alaska Railroad’s flagship train, in the Goldstar Railcar to Denali National Park. The afternoon is open for optional activities such as white water rafting down the Nenana River, helicopter flightseeing over the Park, land on a glacier, or hiking. (Lunch is included onboard the train today)

Day 8 Denali National Park Backcountry Adventure (Coach / Bush Plane Flight) This full-day narrated coach trip explores the entire 148km /92mi of the restricted Denali Park Road. Your driver-guide will help in the search for bear, moose, caribou, Dall sheep and other wildlife. Lunch & snacks are included on this full day journey and while at the Lodge you can take a nature walk or try panning for gold. You will return to the park entrance via a flightseeing tour in a small bush plane.

Day 9 Denali National Park Entrance to Fairbanks (Rail) This morning is open for optional activities. After lunch (not included), take the shuttle to the Alaska Railroad Station and board the Denali Star Train in the Goldstar Railcar to Fairbanks.
