DENALI NATIONAL PARK: Your day starts with a train ride to Denali on a domed railcar, so you won't miss a single sighting of caribou, moose, or bear. Along the way guides will charm you with stories of what life is really like in our 49th state. You'll arrive at Denali in the afternoon and settle into the lodge. The evening is yours for exploration. You can even book an excursion late into the evening because, remember, you've got 18 hours or so of daylightin the land of the Midnight Sun!

DENALI NATIONAL PARK: Board the park transportation to take the fascinating Tundra Wilderness tour (included) deep into Denali National Park. This 5-6 hour, fully narrated excursion is your very best chance of seeing Denali, in all her glory, and wildlife calls "The Great One" home. Don't forget your camera and binoculars!

Day 4

Days 5-6

DAWSON: You'll fly to Dawson, the heart of the 1898's Klondike Gold Rush, for a two night stay. Old-time wooden boardwalks connect frontier-era buildings in the Yukon Territory's original capital and you will have time to explore it all. There are optional excursions, too, including Diamond Tooth Gertie's, Gold Bottom Mining, Dwason City & Gold Fields Tour, Tombstone Park Tour, and Top of the Dome. (All on your own.)

Day 7

WHITEHORSE: You'll arrive here via motorcoach and have time to choose an optional adventure or simply take in some local shops and restaurants at your leisure. Optional excursions may include a city tour, a wildlife preserve, and more.

SKAGWAY: Getting into Skagway is part of the fun via rail! Ride the historic White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad through some of the most jaw-dropping beauty: through tunnels, over sky-high trestles, and through remote valleys. In Skagway, you'll board the Koningsdam to begin our cruise and be treated to the wonders of Alaska that are best enjoyed by sea.
