DAY 2: Kenai Peninsula
Visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Centre en route to the Kenai River. This non-profit organisation rehabilitates injured or orphaned animals and returns them to the wild. During your visit you are likely to spot bears, moose, bison, elk and a variety of birds – so keep your camera and binoculars close to hand. Lunch is an Alaskan barbecue, which is followed by a rafting trip through Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, where bears and moose are commonly seen on shore.

DAY 3: Kenai Peninsula
Take a cruise through the Kenai Fjords National Park where you’ll witness the crash of calving glaciers. You may also see humpback whales, orcas, puffins and sea lions at close range and glimpse bald eagles overhead. Back on dry land, jump on board the Alaska Railroad GoldStar Dome train for a scenic journey through glorious countryside – the train has an open-air platform and a glass-covered observation deck to ensure the very best views.

DAY 4: Redoubt Bay/Talkeetna
Fly by float plane over Cook Inlet to Redoubt Bay Bear Sanctuary where bears prowl the river in search of a meal. From the safety of a pontoon boat, you’ll be able to watch bears snatch salmon from the water – sometimes mid-leap. Later on, explore the historic downtown area of Talkeetna and then on to the Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge, a modern-rustic lodge overlooking Mount McKinley and Denali National Park.

DAY 5: Talkeetna
Spend the morning at Kahiltna Birch Works, seeing how birch sap is harvested from trees and tasting birch candy, ice cream and mustard. After lunch back at the lodge, try your luck fishing on the Susitna River which teems with salmon and trout, surrounded by the most beautiful landscape. End the day relaxing with sundowners on the deck of the lodge, taking in the spectacular views of the Alaska Range.

DAY 6: Talkeetna
Spend the whole day exploring the Denali area, starting with a kayak trip on the placid waters of Byers Lake. Your guide will accompany you on a hike through the well-maintained forest, identifying Alaska’s plant and animal life along the way. Climb aboard a nimble aircraft for a thrilling scenic flight over the peaks and glaciers of Denali National Park; the pilot will point out the highlights via a two-way head set. Having landed on the surface of a glacier (weather permitting), disembark to take in the snowveiled peaks stretching in every direction.
