What's included in this trip
Alaskan Adventure SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Set on the shore of ice-strewn seas to a backdrop of imposing white peaks, Anchorage is a city on the edge. Perhaps arrive a few days beforehand to explore the sights of Alaska's biggest city under your own steam, as this trip departs early on the first day for Denali National Park. Venture out into the wilderness on the lookout for wolves and grizzlies prowling the dramatic landscapes, then perhaps shoot the rapids with some whitewater rafting.
Snuggle down in a cabin on the Alaska mountain range. Take a walk through the tundra or perhaps throw a line into the crystal clear streams.
Head into the high country of Wrangell-St Elias National Park. Marvel at massive glaciers and expansive ice plains, and search for moose and brown bears.
The town of Valdez may be small in size, but it's enormous in stature with its importance as an oil and fishing town and its gorgeous surrounds.
Catch a ferry over to Seward and perhaps opt for a cruise around the dramatic fjords and glaciers of Kenai Fjords National Park.
Embark on your own sea odyssey to Homer on Kachemak Bay. Fend off the cold with some hiking, biking or kayaking, then be treated to a home-cooked local delicacy - salmon bake.
Anchorage, although not the state capital, is home to 40% of Alaska’s population and is the gateway to more than 40 wilderness parks.
