Tour Highlights

Native American history at multiple venues!
Denali National Park
Morning is the best time to see wildlife in the park, so we travel deep into Denali National Park on a Tundra Wildlife Tour. Keep in mind that you are entering a self contained
undisturbed preserve and the animals are in their natural habitat. Truly an experience to remember as you may see your first wild grizzly bear, wolf, moose, or dall sheep. If weather permits, you may see Denali towering over 20,320 feet. Stay in the park. Travel in style aboard the Wilderness Express Railroad to Fairbanks in domed railcars for the best views! We’ll pan for gold and enjoy a sternwheeler cruise on the river.

Prince William Sound Cruise
We’ll cruise twice in the sound: First exploring the beauty and grandeur of breathtaking scenery, towering waterfalls, massive glaciers and wildlife such as: eagles, harbor seals, otters and whales. Rather than sailing from glacier to glacier, we stop at each one, floating among the icebergs, giving you plenty of time to take in Mother Nature’s glorious ice sculptures. Listen to the glaciers as they groan and crack, an indication that enormous sections of ice are about to calve off and splash into the bay! Later in the tour we’ll take an across-the-sound narrated cruise from Valdez as we journey to the Kenai Peninsula.
Kenai Peninsula
Drive along Turnagain Arm, a fjord of water which boasts some of the highest tide waters in the world, keeping an eye out for Beluga whales. Continue along one of America’s most scenic roads, the Seward Highway, to the lovely village of Seward. We’ll cruise Resurrection Bay and experience lunch on Fox Island before heading along the Sterling Highway to the Halibut Fishing Capital of the World, Homer, for more discovery & maybe a whole lot of fishing!
