Kenai Fjords National Park

Sitting at the edge of the Gulf of Alaska, Kenai Fjords National Park is home to nearly 40 glaciers that continuously change the landscape of the area. The park is named after the fjords created by glacial movement over thousands of years, creating the dynamic terrain we marvel at today. With 51% of the park covered in ice, there is a unique variety of land, sea and sky wildlife to be spotted, including moose, bears, sea otters, whales, bald eagles, puffins, and many other spectacular creatures.

Anchorage

Embark on a guided tour of Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city and home to over 40% of the state’s population. Known as the gateway to Alaska adventure due to its proximity to so many attractions, Anchorage boasts an incredible combination of impeccable scenery, outdoor activity, and city convenience all in one place. Discover natural history and native culture in this iconic and welcoming city.

With train journeys from Fairbanks to Denali and Anchorage to Seward, the Alaska Railroad is a spectacular and unique highlight of this tour.
