Overview

Wildlife watching is a highlight of this trip: Watch for bear, moose, caribou, mountain goats, whales, sea lions, sea otters, bald eagles, osprey, puffins, and hundreds of other bird species, especially in coastal regions.

This Alaskan land adventure tour is a great introduction to the national parks of America’s Last Frontier and the state’s most popular wildlife!

Travel by way of the stunning Parks Highway on your way to Denali National Park, Alaska’s most popular park, and spend two nights in a park lodge. Denali is six million acres of wild land, and culminates in North America’s tallest peak, the 20,000-foot Denali (formerly Mount McKinley). Here you can spend your time with complimentary activities or splurge for optional tours to river raft, flightsee, take a jet boat safari, or visit an award-winning Iditarod dog kennel.

Ride in a deluxe dome railcar on your way to the quaint town of Talkeetna. Travel along the scenic Turnagain Arm on your way to Kenai Fjords National Park, where nearly 40 glaciers flow from the Harding Icefield.
