During the journey, take in the sprawling views of Alaska's picturesque glaciers.

Enjoy a city tour of Anchorage and time on your own for lunch at one of the many local restaurants. After lunch, visit the Alaska Zoo to see some of Alaska's indigenous animals such as musk ox, wolves, bears, and caribou. During the extended daylight in the summer months, you'll have plenty of time to enjoy evening activities to suit your personal style.
Day 2: Anchorage / Denali
Today you'll ride along the rails fo the world-famous Alaska Railroad from Talkeetna to Denali, with 360-degree views from your deluxe dome railcar seats. As the gorgeous scenery of Alaska rolls past, be watchful for wildlife, as well as glimpses of Mt McKinley, or, as local Alaskans call it, "The Great One." Full bar and meal service are available for purchase during your rail journey. Open evening for optional activities such as whitewater rafting, helicopter flightseeing, hiking, or one of the park service programs.
Day 3: Denali / Fairbanks
More than just the mountain, Denali National Park is six-million acres of wild land. This morning, your tour will take you into this pristine region of Alaska on the only road into and out of the park. Along the way, enjoy a fully narrated ride learning about the flora and fauna of the area while looking out for the wild animals that roam freely and call this park home. While in this beautiful area, set aside time to experience the solitude and tranquility that vast wilderness can provide. During your Tundra Wilderness Tour, you will travel 53 miles into Denali National Park, enjoying the incredible scenery and some of the best opportunities to see wildlife in its natural setting. A light snack is included on the tour. Tour duration is approximately 7 hours. Upon arrival in Alaska, your Tour Director will advise you of your tour time. Following your park tour, you'll take your third segment along the rails of the Alaska Railroad to Fairbanks in a deluxe dome railcar.
