A scenic train will bring us to our next destination, the Alyeska Resort in Girdwood, where we’ll dine at the intimate mountaintop restaurant Seven Glaciers.

Welcome to America’s Wild North. Alaska isn't just the Last Frontier; it's one of the deepest, most untouched natural playgrounds in the world. Greet your guides at the historic Hotel Captain Cook in downtown Anchorage before setting out on a 2.5-hour drive south towards the Kenai National Park. En-route, catch the mesmerizing bore tide of Turnagain Arm, catch glimpses of the Chugach Range and grow anticipation of the adventure to come. Your guides will spoil you with a famous Trek Travel picnic before embarking on a quiet ride into the hills making your way towards Exit Glacier. Stop midway at the Exit Glacier View Point to take in the vast size, dense blue color subtle crackling of this glacier. Tonight, enjoy dinner together at a locals favorite spot and take in panoramic views of the Kenai Fjords National Park all night. You've got a big week of adventure ahead. Crack your window open to let the sounds of the harbor lull you to sleep at tonight’s hotel; the waterfront Harbor 360 Hotel.

Included Meals:

Lunch | Social Hour | Dinner

With so much of the National Park being only accessible by water, today is the day to soak in the natural beauty and wildlife that this special peninsula has to offer. Get an early start to the day, grab a quick breakfast and head to the harbor for a guided kayak trip through Resurrection Bay. Experience the sounds and sights of this intertidal zone under your own power. Paddle ashore on a remote rocky beach, disembark and stroll through a magical temperate rainforest. Bring your camera and get ready to experience a true microcosm of Alaska: bald eagles perched high in a dead snag, seals rolling through searching for fish, and potentially even catch the once-in-a-lifetime experience of the summer salmon run. Next up, head back to the harbor to board the Major Marine's 360 catamaran for a cruise into Kenai Fjords National Park and around Resurrection Bay. Don't expect to follow the same route as previous tours - this boat goes straight to where whales, puffins, and other wildlife were most recently spotted. Once back in Seward, a dip in the hotel's hot tub is the perfect closer to the day's buoyant activities. Tonight is yours to check out local fare and festivities, with great recommendations from your guides to point you in the right direction.

Today in Alaska truly embodies Trek Travel's motto: Your day, you decide! Start the morning early and hike to the base of Exit Glacier. Walk the flood plain, hike to a viewpoint looking face-to-face with this ultimate wonder. Feel the cool air, reach out and touch glacially polished stone, dip a foot in the glacial run-off. Next, visit three-time Iditarod Champion Mitch Seavey’s homestead to see the excitable Alaskan Huskies in action as they train for Alaska’s historic Iditarod race. Alternatively, choose to meander through the inspiring Alaska SeaLife Center to get up close with rescued seals, starfish, and sea otters. Downtown offers plenty of intrigue as well, with cute shops and art galleries. This evening, you'll board the world-famous Alaska Railroad Train and steam north on one of the most magical railways for the 3-hour trip through the Chugach National Forest to a truly authentic Alaskan ski town: Girdwood. You can enjoy the train's dinner fare during the ride, bring something light from Seward along, or wait to eat at one of Girdwood's late night spots - the sun won't set until well after you've arrived. Nestled in a deep valley and on the banks of Glacier Creek, the Alyeska ski resort will be your adventure hub for the next two nights.

Possibly cross paths with a majestic moose, while ospreys and eagles cruise overhead. Ride along Turnagain Arm, through a skeleton spruce and fir forest—thanks to the famous 1964 earthquake which registered a bone-rattling 9.2 magnitude—and keep your eyes peeled for Beluga whales just off-shore. This afternoon, choose your own Alyeska adventure: go for a hike, bike to Portage Glacier or visit the Alaskan Wildlife Conservation Center, summer adventures are right out of the Hotel's door. This evening take the tram high above the resort to have dinner at the incredible Seven Glaciers restaurant for some amazing wild Alaskan cuisine. Don't forget to look for moose meandering the hillside on your way back down!

Talkeetna is home to the convergence to three major glacial rivers, making this a perfect spot to be on the water in Alaska’s summer sun. Explore this small hiking town at the base of Denali and don’t forget to grab a small trinket from local vendors on Main Street. After spending a bit of time in the city, we will ride south to the largest Birch Syrup producing regions in the world. Taste through this syrup in the various stages of the production process and learn exactly what it takes to the leading region in the world. Or plan your own adventure either fishing the Talkeetna River or joining a local outfitter for a flight to the spectacular Denali glacier! (Please note: neither fishing nor the Denali flight costs are included in your trip cost; however, your guides can help arrange these appointments and assist with transportation.)

Before: Anchorage, Alaska

Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city, is in the south-central part of the state on the Cook Inlet. It's traditionally been the gateway into the wilderness that makes this region famous, but that's not to say it doesn't have its own landmarks. Don't miss the Alaska Native Heritage Center and cement a connection through the native population with an education in their history, art, dance and culture. We recommend the following accommodations for your pre and post-trip hotel:
