I just wanted to take the opportunity to say thank you (Ailine Fischer) for the amazing experience in Iceland. This trip was an absolute dream. Everything about it was magical and words truly fall short. The guides, both Jon from A&K and all of the Land Rover crew were knowledgeable, friendly, and professional.

The Hotel Alyeska has a pristine setting, tucked away in the Chugach Mountains on Alaska's south central coast in the quaint town of Girdwood, just 40 miles south of Anchorage. This elegant chateau-style resort is detailed with solid cherry wood and equipped with a wonderful workout centre, full spa and a plethora of opportunities to experience the adventure of the Alaska wilderness. Explore the wooded surroundings on hiking and biking trails, spot bald eagles among the towering spruce trees, and enjoy the tranquillity and the pure fresh air.
A not-to-be-missed experience is a ride on the aerial tram directly from the hotel to the summit of Mount Alyeska. Enjoy dinner at the Seven Glaciers Restaurant, 700 metres above the valley floor, with unrivalled views of the Chugach Mountains, Turnagain Arm and Glacier Valley.
Best time to be there
Make the most of long days and the best weather by travelling between June and September during this time the days are long (19 hours of daylight in June) and nature is in full bloom. Sadly the weather in this part of the world isn't predictable. During the summertime days can be pleasantly warm, even hot, but this can be followed in equal measure by rain, fog and then sun again.
Seattle (10 hrs) and then onto Anchorage (3 hrs 40) or Juneau (2 hrs 30)

ESTA Visa required for UK Passport Holders
Travel insurance is highly recommended as health bills can be high in the USA.
