Itinerary

Located in south-central Alaska on the shores of Cook Inlet, the city of Anchorage is a unique urban environment situated in the heart of the wilderness.
Escape the city for Denali National Park where hiking, rafting and scenic flights over the park and Mt McKinley, the highest mountain in North America, are all available. Jump on a bus service and head to walking trails that weave throughout the park. While enjoying the many trails, keep an eye out for grizzly bears, elk, caribou, wolves and many species of birds that can be spotted wandering freely among the pristine wilderness.
Take in views of the Alaska Range and the glacier-formed geography while travelling into the Wrangell-St Elias National Park. Extensive ice fields and 100 major glaciers spill from the peaks, making this one of the most spectacular parks in Alaska. Part of a vast wilderness area, this park also forms a crossroad for three major mountain ranges - Wrangell, Chugach and St Elias - making hiking here one of the highlights of travelling through the region.
Ringed by soaring snow-capped mountains, Valdez is a very scenic spot. Tour the state's northernmost port and, if the season's right, see salmon swimming up stream. Hike to the scenic Bridal Veil and Horsetail waterfalls, discover the impressive Worthington Glacier or go on a kayak tour to Shoup Glacier.
Head back to the big smoke and farewell the group among the bright lights of Anchorage.
