Why you'll love this trip
  • Head out 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.
  • Take a boat cruise on Resurrection Bay to Kenai Fjords and look out for orca whales, porpoises and puffins before enjoying some free time to hike or relax.
  • Discover Seward, one of Alaska's oldest and most scenic communities, then take a short hike to the tongue of Exit Glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park.
  • Sit back and take in stunning views along the dramatic coastlines of the Turnagain Arm from Anchorage to Homer, then from Seward to Denali National Park, while someone else does the driving.
  • On the way to charming Talkeetna, take a breath in Girdwood, where you’ll hop on the Alyeska Aerial Tram to the top of Mt Alyeska and see some incredible views of seven glaciers and the valley below.

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.
