Alaska is for adventure and discovery! Nourish your soul amid the breathtaking landscapes, fascinating history and abundant wildlife of this must-see outdoor destination. 

During this seven-night journey, stay in both Anchorage and Denali National Park, Alaska’s most famous natural park. Encounter 10,000 years of history at Anchorage’s world-class museums and stroll through friendly Talkeetna. Search for caribou, moose and bear during a narrated tour of Denali National Park and learn about the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race at a working kennel. 

Witness jaw-dropping views on an epic train journey and spectacular coastal scenery while cruising Prince William Sound. In the Matanuska-Susitna Valley, visit a reindeer farm and tuck into a delicious lunch at a family farm. 

Along the way, local experts share their knowledge of Alaska’s history, geography and natural wonders, and you’ll be immersed in a wonderful mix of the region’s frontier-like culture, picturesque landscapes and welcoming communities. 

This small-group experience features first-class accommodations and a generous meal plan including wine with dinner.
