Destinations and optional day excursions may include: Denali National Park and Wildlife Safari (see grizzly bear, moose, caribou, etc.), scenic flights over Mt. McKinley, horseback riding in scenic Kachemak bay, hiking, Iditarod dog kennel tours, Kenai Fjords National Park Day Cruise to tidal glacier, sea kayaking, charter fishing, getting to know the locals, a short hike to Exit Glacier in Seward, and exploring downtown Anchorage. 

Accommodations include shared cabins, houses, lodges, and hotels.

A non-refundable deposit of $1,900 per person is required with applications to reserve your seat. Final, non-refundable payment of approximately $1,900 per person is due by April 13, 2018.  Payment arrangements and credit card payments (plus 4% fee) may be available upon special request.
