Later, we continue up the George Parks Highway to Denali National Park. We arrive at Denali with time to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of the park. Later, sample Alaskan cuisine at Alaska Cabin Nite where you’ll enjoy an all-you-can-eat Alaska dinner. Then sit back for a hilarious show of tall tales, fun songs and foot-stompin’ music

Then, we cast off aboard Riverboat Discovery, the only authentic sternwheeler in Alaska. Your narrated cruise takes you to Old Chena Village where native Alaskan guides show the culture and lifestyle of the original Alaskans. After lunch, you can join us on an optional visit to the El Dorado Gold Camp for a rail journey through an old mining camp. Here you’ll be able to try your hand at gold panning in an authentic setting

DAY 6 – Alaska Highway to Valdez -
Leave Fairbanks this morning and travel south along the Alaska Highway toward Valdez. Follow the route of the Alaska Pipeline and stop at historic Rika’s Roadhouse. This well-known gathering place for long-ago traders, gold miners and trappers offers modern-day travelers a glance into Alaska’s past. Admire the towering Chugach Mountains as we travel through Thompson Pass on our way to Valdez. We’ll stop at Worthington Glacier for a close look at this massive ice floe before arriving at our hotel for the next two nights

Valdez, known as the “Switzerland of Alaska,” is the southern terminus of the 800-mile-long Trans-Alaska oil pipeline. Today, we cruise through the glacier-carved fjords and passageways of Prince William Sound aboard the Valdez Spirit. Enjoy lunch on board as you view sea lions, whales and puffins along the majestic beauty of Alaska’s rugged shoreline
