Title
Alaskan Adventure with Alaska Cruise

Vacation Overview
From Fairbanks to Anchorage, 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—and this Alaska tour not only gives you the opportunity to see spectacular scenery and wildlife, it also gives you the opportunity to learn about Alaska’s history and the Alaska Native people. A highlight of this Alaska tour includes time in Denali National Park & Preserve, a six-million-acre park and home to North America’s highest mountain, Mount Denali. Here, free time gives you the chance to hike along the many wilderness trails or to take advantage of optional outings, such as a wildlife tour to seek out grizzly bears, moose, and more. Another highlight of this Alaska tour is a ride on the legendary Alaska Railroad from Denali National Park to Anchorage. You’ll be delighted by the stunning scenery seen through the wide windows and from the domed-roof car. But that’s not all…also enjoy a 7-night Alaska cruise. Be amazed at breathtaking beauty on the Inside Passage, one of the world’s most picturesque sea lanes featuring expansive turquoise glaciers, and Glacier Bay National Park, where tremendous slabs of ice break off and “calve” into the sea. It is spectacular! Your cruise stops include Haines, Juneau, and Ketchikan. In Fairbanks, cruise on the Nenana River aboard a sternwheeler riverboat and visit a recreated Athabascan Indian Village. In Anchorage, visit the Anchorage Museum to see artifacts from Alaska’s Native people. In Seward, one of Alaska’s most scenic towns, visit the Alaska Sealife Center, where you’ll get an up-close encounter with marine wildlife—such as seals and sea lions—from the Gulf of Alaska. On this Alaska tour designed for value-minded travelers, you’ll experience fun-filled activities and beautiful scenery. It’s a dream vacation!
