ALASKAN ADVENTURE – 2011 – $1569/-
7 days from Anchorage to Anchorage (8420)

From Anchorage to Fairbanks, see what the “Great Land” of Alaska has to offer on this exhilarating vacation. In Alaska, wildlife viewing is abundant—from bald eagles to Dall sheep to beluga whales—and this tour gives you the opportunity to see spectacular scenery and wildlife. Begin your trip in Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city, with time to explore the city’s sights. Then travel into Chugach National Forest and board your cruise to Portage Glacier. Next: see breathtaking scenery as you travel to Fairbanks via the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve and the Matanuska Valley, a lush farming region where cabbages can grow to weigh more than 70 pounds in the 24-hour daylight. In Fairbanks, Alaska’s second-largest city, cruise down the Chena and Tanana Rivers aboard a sternwheeler riverboat. Then ride the legendary Alaska Railroad to Denali National Park for free time to explore on your own, or you can opt to hike, whitewater raft, “flightsee” Mount McKinley, or helicopter land on a glacier. But wait, there’s more: visit an Iditarod Dogsled Center to learn about this epic race. Your trip ends back in Anchorage. On this tour, you experience fun-filled activities and beautiful scenery—a vacation of a lifetime!
