Day by Day
Welcome to Fairbanks, the state's second-largest city. Your Tour Director is on hand late this afternoon to answer any questions.
Morning sightseeing features highlights of this historic city, a chance to learn about the community's Gold Rush heritage, and visits the Alyeska Pipeline. Board the STERNWHEELER RIVERBOAT Discovery III for a cruise on the Nenana River, and visit a recreated ATHABASCAN INDIAN VILLAGE. Listen as the ship's guides discuss the wildlife, history, geology, and customs of the region.
FAIRBANKS-DENALI NATIONAL PARK.
Today we make our way from Fairbanks to DENALI NATIONAL PARK & PRESERVE. Stop in the town of Nenana, where they drove the golden spike in 1923 to signal the completion of the Alaska Railroad. Your afternoon and evening are free to explore on your own. Take advantage of the park service programs, along with optional activities that can be purchased.
DENALI NATIONAL PARK.
A free day for independent activities. A hike along the many wilderness trails might be fun. Also take advantage of several optional outings, including a wildlife tour to seek out grizzly bears, caribou, moose, and Dall sheep; a raft trip down the Nenana River; or a helicopter ride over the park. Your Tour Director will have plenty of suggestions.
DENALI NATIONAL PARK-ANCHORAGE.
Board the world-famous ALASKA RAILROAD for a memorable journey, winding along the Susitna River to Anchorage. Sit back in comfort and enjoy spectacular scenery through wide windows. Be sure to take advantage of the domed-roof car and, if the weather cooperates, you will have the opportunity to view Mount Denali, formerly known as Mount McKinley, from the train.
Today begins with city sightseeing in Anchorage. Visit the ANCHORAGE MUSEUM to see a quality display of artifacts from Alaska's Native people. The afternoon is free to explore.
ANCHORAGE. EXCURSION TO SEWARD.
Travel this morning to Seward, "Gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park," on the Seward Highway, a designated National Scenic Byway. Visit the ALASKA SEALIFE CENTRE, a research facility offering an up-close encounter with marine wildlife from the Gulf of Alaska. Your afternoon is free to join some optional adventures such as a cruise into Kenai Fjords National Park, where you travel up to the face of a glacier, or visit the kennels of the Seavey family, winners of the Iditarod Races from 2012- 2015, and ride behind a dogsled team at Ididaride. If you choose to stay in Seward, enjoy lunch in the charming downtown area and enjoy a scenic walk along the coastal trail. This evening, return to Anchorage.
