Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Devour seafood in Anchorage, hike in stellar Denali National Park, hear glaciers groan at Wrangell-St Elias National Park, marvel at the views of the Kenai Peninsula

A vast, rugged land of jaw-dropping beauty and abundant wildlife, Alaska remains America's last truly unconquered frontier. Up to the challenge? This 15-day adventure will put you in touch with one massive state more than you'd imagined possible, mixing hotel stays with cabins typical of the Alaskan frontier. Along the way, you'll sample amazingly fresh seafood in Anchorage, hike Denali National Park, investigate glaciers, and be blown away by the awesome majesty of your surroundings. Prepare to have your horizons expanded tenfold.

Day 1: Anchorage
Arrive at any time.
Activity: Your opportunity to meet your CEO and fellow travellers, and learn more about your tour. Opt to join the group for a local meal afterwards.
Accommodation: Ramada Anchorage (or similar)

Day 2: Anchorage/Homer

Travel to the Kenai Peninsula and explore the Kenai Fjords. Hike to the Exit Glacier and Harding Icefield this afternoon, seeing the size and power of this natural phenomenon in person.
Transport: Settle in and scan the scenery from the convenience of a private vehicle.
Activity: Explore the Kenai Peninsula where earthquakes and ocean storms are the architects. Ice worms, bears and whales make their home in this land of constant change. Native Alutiiq used these resources to nurture a life intertwined with the sea.
Activity: Head out on an amazing hike to the Exit Glacier and Harding Icefield. The 11.9km (7.4 mi) round trip of the Harding Icefield Trail is a spectacular day hike through the Alaska backcountry. Starting on the valley floor, the trail winds through cottonwood and alder forests, passes though heather-filled meadows and ultimately climbs well above tree line to a breathtaking view of the icefield. The top of the trail is a window to past ice ages - a horizon of ice and snow that stretches as far as the eye can see, broken only by an occasional nunatak or lonely peak. There are various lookout points along the trail that serve as good turnaround points. Portions of the upper trail are covered by ice and snow part of the year. Easier, shorter hikes to the base of the glacier are also options that also afford beautiful views for those not looking for a strenuous hike. Black bears are spotted frequently from the Harding Icefield Trail.
Accommodation: Harborview Inn (or similar)

Worthington Glacier is one of the most accessible glaciers in Alaska, passing within a few feet of the parking lot with a viewing shelter right off the Richardson Highway.
