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 very best of Alaska.

Arrive Fairbanks, USA

Fly to Fairbanks overnight. Upon arrival, transfer to your luxury hotel.

Fairbanks

After a morning at leisure, fly north of the Arctic Circle on a shared adventure by air – an excellent introduction to Alaska’s landscape. As you take in the dramatic scenery and landmarks of interest, your pilot guide provides expert insight into life in these far northern reaches. Your journey takes you by the abandoned gold mining town of Wiseman, over a stretch of the vast Trans-Alaska Pipeline, past the Yukon River Valley and the magnificent Brooks Range.

Denali National Park

Drive to Denali National Park for two days of wilderness adventure. Established in 1917, the park is home to and named after North America’s highest mountain. Amidst its taiga forests, tundra and glaciers lives a bounty of wildlife, including caribou, wolves, bears, moose and Dall sheep. This afternoon, enjoy a personalised guided hike. Your local guide is an expert, and caters your route to suit your interests and fitness levels. Afterwards, rest up in your luxury lodge accommodation nearby. 

Denali National Park

Starting early this morning, spend the whole 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. Throughout, your driver guide provides insight into the nature of the area. You’ve the chance to sight wolves, caribou, bears, moose and more. Your return is via a scenic one-hour flight from Kantishna, offering a different perspective on Denali National Park’s spectacular glaciers, valleys and peaks.

Talkeetna

Drive to Talkeetna, a quintessentially Alaskan village, home to sled-dog mushers, bush pilots and moose. Here you take a flightseeing adventure for excellent views of Denali, North America’s highest peak; and Ruth Glacier, including its imposing granite gorge. Landing on a glacier is undoubtedly a highlight of the flight, and your chance to step out and embrace 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.

Kenai

Before departing Talkeetna, you visit the kennels of champion sled dogs for a dry-land mushing tour. Over two hours, meet the trainee pups and learn about life as a musher. Finish with an exhilarating ride through Talkeetna’s woodland aboard a wheeled racing rig that is used to train dog teams without snow. Then drive to the Kenai Peninsula. This evening, ride the Alyeska Aerial Tram up to Seven Glaciers Restaurant for dinner with a spectacular view. 

Kenai

Board a float that takes you down the Kenai River and through the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. 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 Center, which takes in injured and orphaned animals year-round. This is a chance to view bears, moose, 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.
