9 Days of breathtaking wilderness
Visiting 1 country: United States
Welcome to a trip into the great outdoors. Make sure that you pack for every occasion because while it may be summer, you will experience very sporadic temperatures. There are so many things to see from beautiful landscapes, craft breweries, and everything in between. So prepare yourself for a jam-packed trip!
Day 1: Anchorage, Alaska to Talkeetna
And assemble! You will arrive at the capital and meet the gang before we head towards Talkeetna towards Mt Denali. If you aren’t too tired, you can opt for an optional scenic flight once there… just to dip your toes into the plethora of nature.
Day 2: Talkeetna to Denali
Six million acres of wilderness at one of America’s 58 national parks ready to be explored! Denali not only has amazing sights, but adrenaline junkies can do some whitewater rafting with a guide, so you can learn how to do it the right way, without going overboard!
Day 3: Denali
Today, we head out on a wildlife drive where you will see grizzly bears, moose, and sheep oh my! You can also try some zip-lining if you want to get your heart pumping and see an awesome view from above the trees.
Day 4: Denali to Tangle Lakes
And we’re off to lake country! We will be spending the day at Tangle Lakes, and much like hair it’s a winding group of lakes and streams where adventure calls your name. You can do some zip-lining if you missed out the day before.
Day 5: Tangle Lakes to Wrangell St Elias National Park
You’re not getting tired of national parks are you? Because we are on to another. We are heading east towards the Canadian border and Wrangell St. Elias National Park. Make sure you’ve packed your hiking boots and equipment because we will be going through Wrangell Mountain, Chugach Mountain and St. Elias Mountain!
Day 6: Wrangell St Elias National Park
Here’s hoping your hiking boots are sturdy because you’ve got a free day to explore the national park yourself. You can also choose to go glacier climbing or ice trekking – if you’re crazy enough! Oh man it’s definitely a Dear Diary moment.
Day 7: Wrangell St Elias to Prince William Sound (via Worthington Glacier)
Fancy that? We are heading to Prince William Sound, which sounds hella fancy right? Well, we will be stopping by Richardson Highway to see the Worthington Glacier and Thompson Pass. Fun fact: it is the snowiest place in Alaska during winter. Dinner will be well deserved after all that sightseeing!
Day 8: Prince William Sound
Today is your last day in the wild and we are in a good location, Chugach National Forest where the mountains touch the sky, so make sure you do everything that you think you might have missed out on. You could go on an optional glacier and wildlife cruise or some sea kayaking and you may even see some belly-flopping humpback whales!
Day 9: Prince William Sound to Anchorage
It’s time to head back to reality and say goodbye to the amazing scenery. We will touchdown in Anchorage where you can wander around for some souvenir shopping and well, beer drinking of course! We may be parting ways, but it is definitely not goodbye.
