Alaskan Highlights Itinerary
Take an overland tour of Alaska and visit national parks, the city of Anchorage and the Kenai Peninsula. Visit glaciers and see Alaska’s wildlife on this tour of the USA’s most remote state.
Days 1-2 Anchorage/Kenai Fjords National Park
Originally a construction headquarters for the Alaskan Railroad, Anchorage is now a sophisticated city in the heart of the Alaskan outdoors. Take in the city’s modern vibes before heading out onto the remote Kenai Peninsula and exploring Kenai Fjords National Park. Hike in the high-country of the Harding Icefields, try some fishing in one of the many lakes or enjoy a spectacular cruise through Resurrection Bay and Aialik Fjord.

Watch the sun set over the Alaskan wilderness before retiring to the lodge for the night.
