Denali National Park and Fairbanks Post-Cruise Option
Explore Alaska's former frontier trading post, Fairbanks, and travel deep into the pristine wilderness of Denali National Park. Enjoy one night in Anchorage, "the City of Lights and Flowers," before a scenic transfer to America's splendid six-million-acre Denali National Park. Spend two nights in a lodge located near the park's entrance. Enjoy a guided walk to Horseshoe Lake and discuss the park's ecosystem. Journey into the heart of Denali, where a park guide will help you spot Denali's amazing wildlife--moose, bear, caribou, wolves, Dall sheep and raptors--in its protected natural habitat. Travel aboard a domed train offering open-air observation platforms and stunning 360-degree views of the majestic wilderness--mountains, gorges and spruce forests-during the journey to Fairbanks. Spend two nights in Fairbanks, where you can learn about daily frontier life a century ago, when gold was discovered in nearby creeks. Visit a gold mine, travel through a permafrost tunnel and pan for gold; view a portion of the incredible Trans-Alaska pipeline; and cruise the fabled Chena and Tenana Rivers aboard an authentic sternwheeler. Complete details will be provided with your cruise reservation confirmation.
