This trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations and working with new partners can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
This part of Alaska has 5 star scenery but mostly 3 star hotels. You’ll be staying in the best available hotels but the accommodation on this tour is more rustic than our other Premium itineraries.
Denali Park Road in Denali National Park is only open to mile 43 for summers 2022, 2023 and 2024 because of a land slide. This means the Tundra Wilderness Tour that typically goes for 7-8 hours will only last for 4-5 hours until the road is fully open again.
