This is bigger, wilder and more amazing than you ever imagined. You’ve got to see it for yourself!
Our journey begins on the Philips 26 glacier cruise in Whittier as we glide smoothly across the icy waters of the Esther passage past majestic glaciers. The Glacier Discovery Train then takes us on a scenic voyage along the mystical isthmus of Portage Valley to Alaska’s largest city, Anchorage. The scene we behold is straight out of a fairy tale; glacial banks surround us, as a pod of beluga whales and school of salmon swim below the surface of the icy waters.
A day in town and we’re back on a train to Denali Park. We’re fast-tracked through priority check-in at the station and escorted to our upper level dome seats. We nestle in and stare through the glass, at the gorgeous view of the mountain ranges interrupted by gurgling streams and misty waterfalls. Luxury is a constant companion on this trip and we savor a hot feast prepared to our specific requests in the train’s exclusive dining carriage. Settled into our luxurious boutique hotel in Denali, we indulge in a quick nap before an entertaining night of dinner theatre at the Alaska Cabin.
The evening is a delightful combination of memorable performances and a wholesome Alaskan meal of freshwater salmon, barbecue ribs and blueberry cobbler. The days ahead are filled with exhilaration as we journey on to McKinsley, a small hamlet, where we’re scheduled for a canyon run on an 18-foot raft. White water rafting in the Alaskan rapids is next on the list. Along with the adrenaline driven excursions, come more sedate experiences, like a private expedition to beautiful Kantishna, once known for gold mining. Steeped in history and tradition, the excursion includes a guided tour by a native ranger from the National Park Service.
Our final destination lays us in the lap of nature: Kenai Fjords National Park Tour; a glorious 6-hour experience in the natural habitat of whales, seabirds, and sea lions. We end the night with chatter on our lips and our minds racing in wonderment at the visual feast of the last few days. Nestled in bed in our comfortable suite we drive off to dream of our next adventure.
