Highlights

Discover Alaska

Embark on an adventure into the USA’s most northerly state — a land of snow-capped mountains, taiga forests, tucked-away towns and extraordinary wildlife. Your journey begins with flightseeing north of the Arctic Circle. Then it’s on to Denali National Park, where you admire North America’s tallest mountain by land and air. In Talkeetna, meet champion sled dogs and learn about life as a musher, before experiencing a ride first-hand. In Kenai, see the animals given a new lease of life at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. Float down the Kenai River, and explore the glaciers and wildlife of Prince William Sound. This tailor-made journey by land, sea and air reveals the absolute best of Alaska.

Arrive Fairbanks

Upon arrival, transfer to your luxury hotel.

Fairbanks

Board a small plane for a shared flight across the northern tundra to the small town of Coldfoot. The Arctic Circle Air Adventure takes you north of the Arctic Circle to explore the former mining camp of Wiseman, a fascinating ghost town with just a few residents. Along the way you’ll see the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, the Yukon River Valley, and the magnificent Brooks Range (the continent’s northernmost mountains). Your pilot and guide will share stories of life in the far north throughout the tour.

Denali National Park

Today is a private, customisable hiking experience in the Denali area. Your guide is a year-round Alaska resident and a Denali expert. Whether your interest is wildlife, plants, a gentle walk or a long hike, your guide will show you the best of this amazing part of Alaska.

Denali National Park

Starting early, spend the day on a shared excursion into the heart of the national park, stopping along the way for wildlife-watching opportunities. Your route follows the only road leading into this wilderness area, taking you 140 kilometres to the former gold-mining camp of Kantishna. Your driver guide provides insight into the region’s nature from wolves, caribou, bears and moose. Return via a scenic one-hour flight from Kantishna, offering spectacular views of glaciers, valleys and peaks.

Denali National Park - Talkeetna

Talkeetna sits at the foot of the Alaska Range. On a clear day, you can enjoy views of Denali and the Talkeetna Mountains. Talkeetna is home to sled dog mushers, bush pilots, artists and moose. A two-hour flightseeing adventure takes you near Mount McKinley — the highest peak in North America. Enter a world of snow-capped mountains and glacier-filled valleys as you explore the south and east faces. See the Ruth Glacier and the mile-high granite walls of the Great Gorge. Your highlight is landing on a glacier and stepping outside to enjoy the solitude of the Alaska Range.

Talkeetna

Today, hike one of Talkeetna’s best trails alongside a naturalist guide, learning about Alaskan flora and fauna as you go. This is a moderately challenging five-kilometre hike, but your efforts are duly rewarded with views of wildlife — most commonly moose, bears and birds — and old-growth forest sprinkled with wildflowers and filled with birdsong. Your afternoon is at leisure to unwind or continue exploring Talkeetna.

Talkeetna - Kenai

Visit the Talkeetna kennels of Iditarod champion Dallas Seavey for a dog mushing tour. On this three-hour visit, you will meet the dogs at the kennels and learn about how these endurance athletes are raised and trained. Hear about the life of a musher and what it takes to win the world's most iconic dogsled race. Then, discover how to mush a team of dogs as you take control for a 45-minute trip along the trail. Choose to drive or ride, it's up to you. This is the classic Alaskan winter experience.

Kenai

Board a float that takes you down the Kenai River and through the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. The snow-capped Kenai Mountains tower overhead while your naturalist guide talks about the plants, animals and human history that makes this area fascinating. En route, watch for eagles, moose, bears and salmon as your naturalist guide offers expert insight. Afterwards, take a guided walking tour of the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Centre which takes in injured and orphaned animals. This is a chance to view wood bison, caribou, and lynx up close.

Prince William Sound 

Drive to the tiny port town of Whittier for a day of cruising Prince William Sound aboard a compact vessel. Explore scenic shorelines, bird rookeries, marine wildlife and calving glaciers. Keep your eyes peeled for humpback whales, harbour seals, sea lions, otters, orca, and a myriad of sea birds, including puffins. During your cruise, there is time to moor up at a remote beach for a spot of tide pooling, or for a hike into this northernmost rainforest.

Depart Anchorage

Drive to Anchorage for your overnight flight home.
