Itinerary

Originally a construction headquarters for the Alaskan Railroad, Anchorage is now a sophisticated city in the heart of the Alaskan outdoors. Perhaps arrive a few days early to spend some time getting to know this unique city. Join a welcome meeting early this morning 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.
Drive along the picturesque Alaska Marine Highway before taking a ferry through Prince William Sound en route to Valdez. Admire Alaska’s rugged coastline, witness the looming peaks of the Chugach Mountains and be lucky enough to see ice sheets crumbling from the massive Columbia Glacier.
This impressive national park features four major mountain ranges, chains of glaciers and extensive icefields.
Enjoy the stunning Alaska Range from the comfort of a simple lodge.
Bear witness Alaska’s stunning scenery while travelling on the Old Denali Highway. Keep an eye out for wild caribou, wolves and Dall sheep among the pristine back country of Denali National Park. Take a scenic bus ride before indulging in some optional activities such as river rafting and hiking.
