DAY 1 ARRIVE ANCHORAGE, ALASKA
Arrive in Anchorage,where you are met and transferred along the scenic Turnagain Arm to Girdwood, to check in to your resort. Enjoy activities on offer at your resort, such as a ride up Mount Alyeska on the Alyeska Aerial Tram to take in breathtaking views.
 
DAY 2 KENAI PENINSULA | SCENIC FLOAT TRIP
This morning, set out to experience Alaska’s jaw-dropping landscapes on a family float trip down the Portage River. Savor Alaska’s prized fish during a lunchtime salmon bake. Later, visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, a nonprofit organization that rehabilitates injured or orphaned animals and returns them to the wild. During your visit, keep on the lookout for black and brown bears, moose, bison, wolves, a variety of birds, and other species. This evening, gather with fellow families for a festive welcome dinner at a local restaurant. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
 
DAY 3 KENAI PENINSULA | ALONG THE COAST OF THE KENAI FJORDS
Set sail for a cruise along the coast of the stunning Kenai Fjords National Park, where you may spy calving glaciers as well as wildlife that includes orcas, adorable puffins and sea lions, at close range; overhead, bald eagles may come into view. Later, ride the Alaska Railroad GoldStar Dome train, which features an open-air platform and a glass-covered observation deck for sensational views of the countryside. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
 
DAY 4 REDOUBT BAY | BEAR COUNTRY
Approximately 90% of Alaska is not served by roads, which is why aviation plays such an important role in everyday life. Fly southwest to Redoubt Bay Lodge, the site of some incredible bear viewing. Embark by boat through “bear country,” looking for black and brown bears, and watching for other wildlife along the way. Later, continue to your accommodations in a rustic-modern lodge that overlooks Denali National Park and North America’s tallest peak, Denali (formerly Mount McKinley). (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
 
DAY 5 TALKEETNA | EPIC ALASKAN RIVER FISHING
Today, explore the quaint downtown of Talkeetna. Visit the family-run Kahiltna Birchworks, where learning about birch sap is rewarded with tastings of birch-made candy and ice cream. Then, head out on a privately guided angling experience, trying your hand at fishing on local rivers teeming with salmon, trout and char, and lined with towering fir trees. This evening, enjoy time together at your wilderness lodge, relaxing on the deck with views of endless mountain scenery or inside with board games by a giant river rock fireplace. (Breakfast)
 
DAY 6 TALKEETNA | KAYAKING, HIKING & GLACIER WALK
Continue exploring the magnificent Denali area with an all-ages kayak trip on placid Byers Lake. Next, join a knowledgeable naturalist guide on a hike that reveals Alaska’s abundant flora and fauna. Later, take off on another thrilling flight, this time over the peaks and glaciers of Denali National Park, as your pilot explains the highlights via twoway headset. Land — and walk — on a glacier’s surface (weather permitting), surrounded by snow-veiled peaks in every direction. Then, make an A&K-exclusive visit to the Talkeetna Roadhouse, and take away a box of sweet treats to decorate and enjoy. (Breakfast, Lunch)
 
DAY 7 ANCHORAGE | HUSKIES & IDITAROD CHAMPIONS
Depart for Anchorage, stopping en route to visit the kennels of four-time Iditarod champion Martin Buser and his Alaskan husky team. Learn how these remarkable canines, who are always eager for a gentle pat on the head, are prepared to compete in the annual endurance race. Tonight, meet the chef who prepares your farewell dinner, and then feast and share favorite stories from your journey with the new friends you’ve made. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
 
DAY 8 DEPART ANCHORAGE
