Enjoy an overnight stay at a hotel in Alaska’s charming city of Anchorage.

Day 2: Anchorage to Denali National Park 

You'll travel from Anchorage to Denali National Park in a deluxe dome railcar, enjoying the panoramic views across three striking mountain ranges. At more than 6 million acres, Denali is one of the world's greatest wildlife preserves. When we reach the park, you can join an optional adventure, or simply soak up the views. We’ll spend tonight in a nearby lodge. 

Day 3: Discover Denali National Park 

Travel deep into Denali National Park today on the Tundra Wilderness Bus and search the vast wilderness for bears, moose, caribou, and Dall sheep. This five to six-hour journey is narrated to provide unique insight into the animals, as well as the flora and fauna of this spectacular region. Together with your guide you will also explore the Denali area during an approx. two-mile-long miles long, moderate hike. A snack will be provided on the tour. Please note that the tour duration may vary due to weather and road conditions. At the end of your exciting day, you’ll spend the night at a lodge at Denali Park Entrance. We recommend you bring your own refillable water bottles. Along the way you may find water stations. 

Day 4: Denali National Park to Anchorage 

On the way back to Anchorage, we'll stop at Happy Trails Kennel, home to dozens of sled dogs. You’ll take a virtual trip along the Iditarod trail, watch a dog sled demonstration and grab some all-important puppy playtime. You’ll also enjoy a light packed lunch before we return to Anchorage, where your expedition begins. 

Please note that we sometimes visit sites in a different order.
