All aboard the Alaska Railroad this morning! Today's breathtaking journey takes us into the heart of the wilderness and Denali National Park, six million acres of pristine and protected land. We arrive at our Denali lodge and enjoy time at leisure.

Day 4 : Denali National Park & Preserve

Today a naturalist guide joins us on a journey into the tundra of Denali National Park. Our expert guide helps us keep watch for grizzly bear, moose, caribou, and Dall sheep. If the skies permit, we may also catch a glimpse of Denali, the highest peak in North America. This evening back at our lodge, delight in the toe-tapping revelry of the Music of Denali Dinner Theater, full of tales and lore from the days of yore.

Today we see the major sights of Anchorage, with plenty of insight into the city’s ties to the great outdoors. More than 40% of Alaska’s population calls this coastal city home, though that only adds up to 300,000. Our tour ends at the Anchorage Museum, where the state’s culture and history come to life. The afternoon is ours, with free time to explore or shop for hand-crafted souvenirs. Tonight, we gather for dinner at the Bridge Seafood Restaurant.

This portion of the Alaska Railroad offers magnificent scenery that can only be seen by rail and is considered to be the finest in Alaska. Upon arrival in Seward, embark on a high speed catamaran for a narrated 120-mile cruise through Kenai Fjords National Park. Sea otters, seals, whales, and other marine life are likely to greet us. Our captain will pause for incredible views of a towering tidewater glacier.

Today’s highlight is a morning stop at the Alaska SeaLife Center, where research and rehabilitation help some of Alaska’s threatened marine life.
