On top of the world

Magnificent images are conjured when Alaska is mentioned: massive, sweeping glaciers, salmon leaping into the mouths of waiting bears, endless white-capped mountains, whales breaching from frigid seas, the lure of gold and the intricate native cultures that live with the land. All this and more put Alaska on many a “bucket list.” Come see for yourself why so many people rave about this awesome landscape!

Itinerary

Day 01: Arrival in Anchorage
Tucked between six mountain ranges and skirted by the Bering Sea, Anchorage has more than 60 glaciers, a myriad of wildlife and a collection of volcanoes nearby. Welcome to the beginning of your adventure!
Day 02: Anchorage to Seward
Sit back and enjoy the spectacular landscape roll by as we head to the seaside town of Seward. As we follow Turnagain Arm we have sweeping views of first the Chugach Mountains then the Kenai Range. Imagine this route plied by Native peoples, Russian fur traders, European explorers and American gold prospectors. The drive along the dramatic shoreline of Turnagain Arm with its immense tidal flats is one of the most beautiful road in North America. From here we will climb to Turnagain Pass and descend into the Anchorage Bowl, which is often blanketed with colourful wildflowers. As we approach Seward we come to Moose Pass where the start of the 1600 kms Iditarod Trail begins. Here teams of hardy men and huskies begin one of the toughest, most arduous races in the world. Moose Pass is also a great place to see migrating salmon in season. On our final stretch to Seward we encounter numerous glacier lakes including Kenai, Meridien and Grayling. Just before arriving and settling into our Seward hotel we’ll visit Exit Glacier to stretch our legs and enjoy a close up view.
Day 03: Seward to Valdez (via Prince William Sound)
It’s time see some spectacular seascapes! Today we board the ferry to cruise past Prince William Sound’s massive icebergs, calving glaciers and abundant sea life. Make sure to have your camera handy since it’s common to spot puffins, seals, otters and even whales on this stretch of water! After disembarking we’ll continue to Valdez. During this stretch of road keep an eye out for bear, moose and sheep.
Hiking in Kluane National Park Hiking in Kluane National Park
Day 04: Valdez to Fairbanks
Settle in for a relaxing road trip with incredible stops along the way as we head to Fairbanks. Our route is surrounding by towering mountain ranges, glaciers and wildlife. In fact, two 160 kms section of this road are designated as scenic byways by the state. Expect to see cascading waterfalls, colourful glacier terminus lakes, alpine tundra, historic buildings and maybe even a stop in North Pole to send some postcards to the kids!
Day 05: Fairbanks to Denali
A short drive or meandering, scenic train ride (optional) from Fairbanks brings us to one the most splendid elements of this tour! Denali National Park with it’s abundant wildlife, expansive tundra and, of course, the 6193 metre Mount McKinley dominating the horizon will be a lifelong memory.
Day 06: Denali (Denali Park shuttle Bus Tour)
Today we team up with the park staff to join their Wonder Lake Tour. This full-day trip delves into the heart of Denali National Park. Along the way expect to see an abundance of wildlife including caribou, foxes, wolves, bears and so much more. Wonder Lake is a glacier-carved gem with the gorgeous backdrop of Mount McKinley.
Day 07: Denali to Anchorage
As we swing south towards Anchorage today we will complete our mountainous loop. Again we move through ever-changing landscapes with wildlife and history around every bend. Anchorage will seem like a metropolis after your excursion through the Alaskan wilderness! Enjoy some free time in Anchorage this afternoon. This city offers a number of interesting elements including Lake Spenard with its 800 float planes and aviation museum or take this time to explore and shop before heading on to a connecting program or turning for home.
Day 08: Anchorage, Departure
