Itinerary

Located in south-central Alaska on the shores of Cook Inlet, Anchorage is a unique urban environment in the heart of the great outdoors.
Wilderness lovers will rejoice in this natural wonderland, where grizzlies, wolves, elk and caribou roam wild. Peer at the massive Mt McKinley – the highest mountain in North America – while strolling, hiking, rafting or taking a scenic flight through the park.
Admire the glacier-formed geography and spectacular views of the Alaska Range on the drive to Wrangell-St Elias. Often referred to as 'Mountain Kingdom', this is the largest national park in the country.
Ringed by soaring snow-capped mountains, Valdez is Alaska’s rugged, northernmost port. Depending on the season, take the chance to see salmon swimming up stream, hike to the scenic Bridal Veil and Horsetail waterfalls, discover the impressive Worthington Glacier or take a kayak tour to Shoup Glacier.
Return to Anchorage to get ready for the second half of this exciting adventure. Perhaps use this opportunity to visit the Alaska Native Heritage Center or enjoy a tasty seafood meal - a local specialty.
Hug the coast of the Kenai Peninsula, where glaciers tumble down from the mountains towards the ocean. Keep an eye out for beluga whales playing out at sea while traversing the Turnagain Arm.
Soak up the historic ambience of Hope, one of Alaska's first gold rush towns.
Cast away on an optional boat cruise around the glaciers of Kenai Fjords National Park and keep an eye out for curious mammals such as sea lions, orcas and dolphins. Hike up Exit Glacier to the Harding Icefield, ride a dog sled through the snow or go fishing for halibut.
Traverse the rugged Alaskan landscape on the journey back to Anchorage.
