Alaska Travel Trip

Price not

with Christy Monroe

Calendar Aug 1, 2018

Explore the Last Frontier! Experience the true magic of the most spectacular, unspoiled areas of this amazing wilderness. We'll travel around in our own private van from Anchorage around the Kenai Peninsula to Homer and Seward, drive to the frontier town of Talkeetna, and take the Alaska Railroad north to Denali National Park.

You don’t have to be an athletic outdoorsman to get the most out of this adventure, but we can accommodate most interests with our list of optional excursions. 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.

Application submissions are recommended by February 17, 2017. Only 8 spots are available.
