SPECIAL NOTE:

Our customized journeys allow members to set their own travel dates and include their individual personal interests along with specific excursions, dining and regional opportunities that they may wish to experience for the perfectly-personal journey experience. NO keys are required for this journey. Please refer to fees section in property details below.


Experience 7 nights/8 days exploring magnificent Alaska as a family on this epic journey as you spend the time bonding while adventuring on the Portage River via float trip, cruising through the Kenai Fjords National Park and spotting humpback whales and orcas, flying over Denali National Park and landing on a glacier, riding the great Alaska Railroad GoldStar Dome train through untouched wilderness, watching for wild bears on the shores of Redoubt Bay and dog-sledding with Alaskan huskies with a four-time Iditarod champion!



THE LAST FRONTIER ALASKA Journey Itinerary in brief:

DAY 1: ARRIVE ANCHORAGE
Arrive in Anchorage and transfer to Girdwood, where you check in to your hotel. Enjoy activities on offer at your resort, such as a ride up Mount Alyeska on the Alyeska Aerial Tram to take in the breathtaking views. This evening, gather for a welcome reception and dinner at a local restaurant. (Dinner included)



DAY 2: KENAI PENINSULA - FLOAT TRIP
This morning, relax on a float trip along the Portage River, where you may have the opportunity to view hanging glaciers and a variety of wildlife. This afternoon, enjoy a salmon bake, and then visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. This nonprofit organization rehabilitates injured or orphaned animals and returns them to the wild. During your visit, keep your camera and binoculars at the ready as you may sight bears, moose, bison, elk and a variety of birds. Return to your hotel for evening at leisure. (Breakfast & Lunch included)

DAY 3: KENAI PENINSULA & FJORD ADVENTURE
Cruise the Kenai Fjords National Park, and watch for calving glaciers. You may see humpback whales, orcas, puffins and sea lions at close range, and glimpse bald eagles overhead. Ride the Alaska Railroad GoldStar Dome train, which features an open-air platform and a glass-covered observation deck for sensational views of the countryside. Return to your hotel for evening at leisure. (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner included)

DAY 4: REDOUBT BAY - TALKEETNA & BEAR SANCTUARY
After breakfast, depart for your next big adventure. Fly by float plane over Cook Inlet to Redoubt Bay Bear Sanctuary, where you may see bears coming out to feed as you enjoy the rugged scenery. Later, explore the quaint downtown of Talkeetna and continue to your accommodations in a rustic-modern lodge that overlooks Denali (formerly Mount McKinley) and Denali National Park. Check into your Alaska Lodge for relaxing overnight and dinner. (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner included)

DAY 5: TALKEETNA & FISHING
Visit Kahiltna Birch Works with your Young Explorer’s Guide to see how birch sap comes out of trees and then enjoy a tasting of birch candy, ice cream and mustard. Return back to the lodge and enjoy lunch. Later in the afternoon, head out to fish the Susitna River, its waters teeming with salmon and trout, amid the beautiful surrounding landscapes. Cap your day with a Scenic Sundowner as you enjoy gorgeous views of the Alaska Range from the relaxing deck of your lodge. Evening at your leisure. (Breakfast and Lunch included)

DAY 6: TALKEETNA - KAYAKING, HIKING & GLACIER WALK
Today you will explore the Denali area with a guided kayak trip on the placid waters of Byers Lake. Hike on a well-maintained forest trail as your guide introduces Alaska’s plant and animal life along the way. Next, climb aboard a nimble aircraft for a thrilling flight over the peaks and glaciers of Denali National Park, as your pilot, via two-way headset, explains the highlights you see. Land on a glacier’s surface (weather permitting), and disembark to experience snow-veiled peaks stretching in every direction. Enjoy many photo ops here before returning back to your lodge. Evening at your leisure. (Breakfast and Lunch included)

DAY 7: TALKEETNA to ANCHORAGE - CHAMPION HUSKIES
Depart for Anchorage, stopping en route to visit the kennels of four-time Iditarod champion Martin Buser and his Alaskan husky team. The annual long-distance sled-dog race is run every March from Anchorage to Nome, with mushers and their teams of 16 dogs often facing blizzards, gale-force winds and sub-zero temperatures along the way. Afterwards, continue onward to tour Anchorage and check-into your charming hotel. Tonight enjoy a chef-prepared family farewell dinner. (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner included)

DAY 8: DEPART ANCHORAGE
After breakfast, transfer to the airport to board your home-bound flight. (Breakfast included)
