Itinerary and Meals
From Fairbanks to Anchorage, see what the "Great Land" of Alaska has to offer on this exhilarating Alaska tour and cruise. You’ll visit Denali National Park, where North America’s highest peak—Denali (formerly known as Mount McKinley)—dominates the park’s six million acres. Here, enjoy an exclusive presentation on the park from a local Naturalist—a special experience offered by Globus—and enjoy a wilderness expedition in search of grizzly bear, caribou, moose, and more. You’ll have an opportunity to ride the thrilling, world-famous Alaska Railroad in Deluxe Dome Service for a journey through untamed wilderness to Talkeetna, where you’ll overnight at the Talkeetna Lodge. With amazing views of Denali, it’s another special adventure offered by Globus! You’ll also cruise aboard a sternwheeler riverboat in Fairbanks and visit Happy Trails Kennels near Willow, the official start of the famous Iditarod Race. Here, you’ll learn about the Iditarod and meet the sled dogs—another fun experience offered by Globus. You’ve seen photos of glaciers calving into the sea, but nothing compares to being there in person. During your cruise on Kenai Fjords National Park, watch the glaciers crash into the sea and hear the thunderous roar. It’s a spectacular sight! Along the way, watch for wildlife, including sea otters, seals, birds, and more. On your 7-night Alaska cruise, witness even more stunning scenery as you cruise Alaska’s Glacier Bay National Park and scenic Inside Passage. Visit Juneau, Alaska's capital with beautiful forests and mountains; Haines, on the shores of America's longest fjord; and Ketchikan. Alaska is a destination that should not be missed. So grab your camera, sit back, and let Globus handle all the details on this Alaska tour and cruise—a vacation of a lifetime!
