Day 1 : Fly to Alaska

Our Alaska adventure begins with a flight to Fairbanks, “Golden Heart” of the Last Frontier.

Our accommodations for the next three nights are in Fairbanks.

Day 2 : Fairbanks

Today we are introduced to Fairbanks’ history as we trace its development from the gold rush to the discovery of “Black Gold.”

Get a glimpse of the famed Trans-Alaska Pipeline, and at Gold Dredge 8, learn to pan for gold and keep the gold you find!

Enjoy an all-you-can-eat lunch at Steamboat Landing.

Next, board the Riverboat Discovery sternwheeler for a narrated excursion on the Chena River and go ashore at a recreated Athabascan Indian camp.


Day 3 : Delta Junction Farms

Today’s travels take us to the official “end of the Alaska Highway,” the friendly frontier of Delta Junction. Complimented by spectacular views of the Alaska Range, this picturesque rural setting lies in the fertile Tanana River Valley. Barley is the major feed grain grown here.

We have the unique opportunity to visit a family run barley farm and mill called The Alaska Flour Company.

Later we visit Mugrage Hay & Cattle for a chance to learn about raising livestock in the far north.

This evening we enjoy delicious food as we’re treated to a true Alaskan experience, a traditional salmon bake. Fresh from Alaska’s icy waters, watch as skilled chefs expertly cook salmon on an open wood grill while prime rib is slow roasted. Beer battered Bering Sea cod rounds out the all-you-can-eat menu.


Day 4 : Denali National Park

Sit back and relax as we travel by motorcoach through the incredible Alaskan wilderness towards what is sure to be a highlight, Denali National Park. As we make our way south we cross the Parks Highway bridge over the Tanana River and begin to climb into the Alaska Range and arrive at our lodge accommodations in Denali National Park.

After a delicious lunch, we begin our guided tundra tour of Denali National Park.

An expert park naturalist will be with us to provide information as we look for wildlife in this unique ecosystem.


Day 5 : Iditarod Trail Headquarters

Take in the Alaskan scenery as we travel south from Denali to the Matanuska Valley, the heart of Alaskan agriculture. This area is known for the huge vegetables grown under nearly continuous sunlight during summer months.

At the Iditarod Trail Headquarters, we’ll learn about sled dogs and “mushing” through exhibits and a video presentation featuring the famous Anchorage to Nome sled dog race.

Next we visit Havemeister Dairy, the only dairy farm and creamery still in operation from the Matanuska Colony days.

Upon arrival in Anchorage, we check-in to our hotel for a two-night stay.


Day 6 : Alaska State Fair

Our full day of Alaskan agriculture begins with a visit to The Musk Ox Farm in Palmer. We’ll see these magnificent animals up-close and learn about their fine underwool called qiviut, a rare fiber that is warmer, softer, and more durable than most other types of wool.

This afternoon finds us at the Alaska State Fair. There’s time to visit exhibits, booths and displays that feature livestock, poultry, beekeeping, baked goods, vegetables and more. Afterwards, we return to downtown Anchorage for a second night.


Day 7 : Kenai Cruise

Our day begins with a ride on the Alaska Railroad’s Coastal Classic from Anchorage to Seward, a truly astounding journey. This train’s route is considered by many to be the most scenic in all of Alaska. Aboard the train we enjoy beautiful views of Turnagain Arm, a spectacular fjord-like inlet.

In Seward we depart on a narrated excursion to Kenai Fjords National Park aboard the Coastal Explorer. Our voyage will include a visit to a tidewater glacier. Be sure to keep an eye out for sea otters, seals, whales and other wildlife while we indulge in our included lunch.

Our accommodations this evening are in Seward.


Day 8 : Alaska SeaLife Center

Enjoy a leisurely morning before visiting the Alaska SeaLife Center. Learn about research and rehabilitation efforts to help Alaska’s threatened and endangered marine life.

Later we gather for a Holiday Vacations Farewell Lunch at Ray’s Waterfront overlooking the Seward small boat harbor.

We return to Anchorage and board our overnight flight home.


Day 9 : Arrive Home

We fly home with wonderful memories of Alaska.
