Why you'll love this trip
  • Experience the rugged scenery of Alaska by land from the most populous city of Anchorage, through quaint towns like Palmer, all the way to the untouched back country.
  • Head on an Alaskan safari for a unique chance to see moose, caribou, grizzly bears, Dall sheep and wolves in their natural habitat in Denali National Park.
  • Witness the land mammals of Denali before getting up close to sea otters, puffins and humpback whales on a boat trip among glaciers in Valdez.
  • Discover Seward, one of Alaska's oldest and most scenic communities, which offers a bustling harbour, quaint shops and galleries, and is a great base from which to explore Kenai Fjords National Park.
  • Sit back and take in stunning views along the dramatic coastlines of the Turnagain Arm from Seward to Anchorage, while someone else does the driving.

Is this trip right for you?
  • As Alaska is a huge state with long distances between towns and cities, be prepared to spend a lot of your time in the car. Some journeys can take up to eight or nine hours, but there will be breaks along the way. This is all part of the adventure and a great way to see a variety of Alaskan landscapes.
  • While Alaska can experience warm summers, you should still be prepared for cold temperatures, especially at night, and also rain, which can (and does) happen year-round. Bring warm clothing with you, including base layers, a warm hat, gloves and a thick coat, as well as a rain jacket and waterproof shoes.
  • There are far more optional activities available on this trip than included activities. As not all of them are suitable for all budgets and activity levels, we prefer to leave the choice up to you.
  • Mosquitoes are found across the USA, even in the colder regions. They can be a problem a lot of the time, especially in July. It’s recommended that you bring insect repellent with you and anything else you think is applicable.
  • The summer months in Alaska see very long daylight hours, with the sun not completely setting until after midnight. As most people are likely to sleep before midnight, you might want to bring an eye mask to block out the light.

Alaska is a beautiful place and this place allowed us to see and do a lot in a short amount of time. The sites, excursions, and accommodations were excellent and I would thoroughly recommend this trip!

The Best of Alaska tour was wonderful! I enjoyed every location we visited, and the tour was well run. Our guide was fabulous - knowledgeable, kind, patient, and fun! The accommodations were nice and all included activities were great. Alaska includes a lot of driving, but you can't beat the scenery along the way! Highly recommend!

It was a lifetime experience for my kids and me. We enjoyed all the wildlife, wilderness and all the wonders Alaska offered us . Without our guide we could have never packed so many different activities in the time we spent in Alaska. Not to forget it was very educational and we learnt about Alaska history, life and sustainability that we all can contribute to.

This trip would have been very good if we eliminate too much driving. We can easily achieve this by eliminating Valdez as destination. Seward has similar but better sight seeing than Valdez.
