Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

This Alaska tour is a dream come true for value-minded travelers seeking to experience Alaska's breathtaking scenery and thrilling experiences. You'll start and end your tour in Anchorage with overnights also in Denali National Park and Valdez. In between destinations, you'll have the opportunity to witness scenery unlike anywhere else, with untamed wilderness and exciting wildlife sightings. A tour highlight is your cruise across the striking Prince William Sound. Witness the three-mile face of the Mears Glacier as you keep your eyes open for marine wildlife, such as otters, seals, and whales, all while you admire stunning glaciers. Another tour highlight is your journey to Talkeetna, a quaint town exemplifying small-town Alaska, from Anchorage aboard the Alaska Railroad. On this train trip, you’ll travel through gorgeous wilderness and understand Alaska’s allure. Two nights in Denali National Park gives you the opportunity to explore this amazing park, home to six million acres and North America's highest peak (20,310-foot Denali). Perhaps go for a hike or participate in an optional outing, such as a wilderness tour to seek out grizzly bear, moose, caribou, and more. But that’s not all…on this Alaska vacation, you’ll witness stunning views as you travel over the top of Thompson Pass, where you’ll admire unforgettable scenery, and into Alaska’s interior across the Denali Highway. The Denali Highway is a seldom-traveled road through true wilderness with frequent wildlife sightings. With magnificent scenery, opportunities to witness wildlife in the natural environment, and awe-inspiring experiences, this Alaska tour is a once-in-a-lifetime vacation!

Hygiene and Safety Protocols for Cosmos Tours

Today's world has changed, but what remains certain is Cosmos' commitment to guest safety, comfort and peace-of-mind while traveling with us. To that end, Cosmos has established a worldwide Assurance program, with enhanced on-trip protocols and procedures, to ensure the health – and happiness – of guests throughout their travels with us.

It all starts with Cosmos' Global Health & Safety Team, dedicated to ensuring that cleanliness of all operations exceeds today’s travel standards—from start to finish. The following areas address Cosmos' commitment to providing a safe and clean environment for guests.

A SAFE & WARM WELCOME

Cosmos will enact new tour check-in procedures and pre-trip health screenings to offer guests a safe start to their journey, including adherence to social distancing requirements.

BLENDING CULTURAL PROXIMITY WITH SOCIAL DISTANCE

Cosmos will ensure safe distances for guests throughout the journey, on coach and during excursions. This includes providing masks for guests use at any time where social proximity could be an issue as well as the possibility of reducing group sizes, if required. And wireless listening technology – including Cosmos' Go Beyond Devices in Europe – enables safe distances between guests and other travelers on excursions.

FOCUS ON GUEST AND TEAM MEMBER HEALTH

To ensure a healthy environment for team and guests, Cosmos will conduct regular temperature checks for both guests and team, and when necessary, masks will be worn by Cosmos' team members when with guests.

TOUCHING HEARTS, NOT HANDS

Traveling with Cosmos removes many of the “touch points” of travel, including luggage handling, check in/out, expedited entry into attractions and more. Cosmos are further reducing risk with hands-free service, meaning all self-services replaced by staff, including buffet meals replaced with table service. Cosmos will also ensure hand sanitizing is available throughout each trip, on coach and in hotels.

COMMITMENT TO CLEAN

As a part of Cosmos' commitment to clean, Cosmos is requiring enhanced cleaning procedures with hotel partners, on motorcoaches, vehicles and throughout every trip, including additional daily disinfecting procedures that go above-and-beyond already strict health and safety procedures.

PARTNERS IN DISCOVERY AND IN HEALTH

Cosmos has strict health and safety protocols, which have been in place for years, focused on ensuring all aspects of operation- from vehicles and equipment used on trip to excursions and hotel procedures. This process will continue with new, elevated health and safety checks, to maintain their promise that each touch-point on tours and cruises are considered in their commitment to guest and team member well-being.

Questions & Answers

Question: How many people are generally in this tour group.

The amount of people on your tour will vary. Cosmos will cap the amount of people on your tour at 50.

Question: Do we book ahead of time to see the big five wild life?

Cosmos cannot make any guarantees towards wild life sightings, but we can recommend travel from mid-May to mid-September for the best opportunity to see wild life.

Question: If There is a twin share of this tour?

Cosmos offers single travelers a "guaranteed share" option, allowing you the chance to split the cost of hotel rooms with same-gender singles, plus you'll also get our additional AffordableTours.com everyday savings.

Question: Are 12 year olds welcome?

Absolutely. Cosmos allows any child between the ages of 8-17.

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

Grand Alaskan Adventure lived up to the billing and more! Wonderful sights (of course)! Traveling by train, bus, and boat enabled us to experience Alaska from many angles. Tour guide and driver were exceptional. Great value!!! Went to places where we were the only tour bus around, which enhanced our Alaska experience. Very pleased!!!

The grand adventure Alaska tour was majestic. The staff were an absolute delight and the tour was well paced to allow one to see and feel the essence of Alaska. Special shout out to the tours commitment to contract with indigenous and locally owned businesses.

Most of the hotels were reasonably comfortable, except the one in Valdez. Tour guide and drivers were courteous and efficient. Pace of trip was good.

Our trip was even better then we expected. Our Tour Guide Alex was amazing. We strongly recommend this company and this vacation. We were able to do so much more then we would of if we had not went through this company. We learned so much about Alaska and were just able to do and see a lot.We saw every type of animal and some really up close. We went by motor coach, boat, train, and even took a helicopter and landed on a glacier and drank it's water. We had all or as little free time as we wanted and saw so much. It was so nice to have someone else do the planning and scheduling where all we had to do was enjoy. It was great. Alex handled everything for us even down to little reminder notes on our door.We hope to do another trip with them in the near future. 5 star all the way

The hotel they use in Valdez was below standard. I would not put my family there by choice. There was mold in the bathroom. The rooms smelled musty. All the other accommodations were fine. There were other hotels in Valdez of which could have been used (Best Western). This was the general opinion of the other travelers.

Yulanda was very helpful and provided clear, excellent information to me and went beyond with some recommendations of places to add as she was very familiar with Alaska and this trip,
