Day 1 Arrive in Anchorage

Arrive in Anchorage and settle into your downtown hotel this evening. If time allows, explore the city a bit tonight. Add a free day in Anchorage to include a flightsee, dog sled or bear viewing tour to explore the area. Rest up before the first full day.

Day 2 Seward | Kenai Fjords Cruise

Catch the train south to Seward this morning, transfer to your hotel and settle in mid-day. Later this afternoon set out on a Kenai Fjords dinner cruise.

Departing from Seward in the afternoon, this cruise glides through Resurrection Bay past abundant wildlife. Then, your experienced captain will take you deeper into Kenai Fjords National Park, where you’ll see the park’s glaciers up-close. A plated dinner will be served on board featuring crab cakes with Sriracha aioli, roasted corn, jalapeno, onions and cilantro, served with a mixed vegetable salad and dinner roll.

Day 3 Seward | Exit Glacier and Dog Sled tour

Enjoy a leisurely morning in Seward today. Mid-morning you are picked up and set out for your tour. Take in the fascinating history and breathtaking beauty as your guide shows you the sights of Seward Alaska, known as “the Gateway to Alaska” and “Mile 0″ of the Iditarod Trail. See first-hand the effects of the 1964 Earthquake and stand in awe of the mountain that is home to the second oldest foot race in the United States.

Then, head out to Exit Glacier in the Kenai Fjords National Park one of Seward Alaska's favorite views. A short walk along the nature trail takes you to the face of the glacial ice. Watch for mountain goats, moose or bear on the mountainside. During the salmon runs, see salmon swimming upstream to spawn. A hearty lunch will be served at nearby Resurrection Roadhouse before you travel to the Seavey homestead and take a 1.5 hour dog sledding tour on wheeled carts. Learn about dog-sledding from the Iditarod expert. At the end of this fun-filled day, spend the rest of your evening relaxing or exploring on your own.

Day 4 Free morning | Overnight Train to Anchorage

Awaken to the smell of the ocean and the spirit of adventure. Take advantage of your free time this morning by sea kayaking in the bay or hiking the daunting Mount Marathon, home to Alaska’s most iconic foot race. Take in the maritime wonders of the Alaska SeaLife Center, raft the Upper Kenai, stroll the harbor looking for sea lions and otters, or charter a fishing vessel for the opportunity to fill your freezer with wild-caught Alaskan salmon and halibut.

Board the evening train and sit back to enjoy the expansive and breathtaking views of the Kenai Peninsula-- including Cook Inlet, Turnagain Arm and the Chugach National Forest-- on your way to your farewell night in Anchorage. 

Day 5 Return Home

Transfer to the airport for your flight home this morning, or continue your travels to another region in Alaska.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
