Alaska's wild and untamed corners entice and enchant. Walk where adventuring mountaineers and gold miners once explored. Hike where tundra-dwelling caribou and grizzlies have ambled and wolves have loped. You may be following in their footsteps but you'll be making your own way. From the Knik River and surrounding glaciers to Denali National Park and its magnificent namesake peak, a true Alaskan experience awaits.
- Unleash your sense of adventure and join us for an exhilarating wilderness escapade into the heart of Alaska
- Roam in the Alaskan taiga—land of dwarf shrubs, spruce and birch—a unique boreal biome found between tundra and temperate forest
- Behold majestic Denali, North America's highest peak at 20,310 feet, while keeping an eye out for gray wolves and grizzly bears
- Journey by helicopter through the magnificent mountains of the backcountry to reach breathtaking and remote glacial landscapes
Days 1-2 Travel from Anchorage to the Knik River—you won't have traveled far from Alaska's busiest city yet you'll find yourself in a place remote enough to feel a world away | Helicopters whisk us over stunning scenery before landing next to a glacier | Which direction do you want to explore? With no trails to hem you in, the tundra and rocky landscape beckons.
Days 3-5 Travel to unspoiled Denali National Park and Preserve, a place so big that if you explored 1,000 acres a day, it would take you 10 years to see it all | Look for the Big Five—moose, gray wolves, grizzly bears, Dall sheep and caribou—as we venture deep into the heart of the park | Journey to Kantishna, a former mining outpost at the literal "end of the road" | Explore Denali with a variety of activities, from guided hikes to an optional "flightseeing" trip around Denali's towering summit | Pause at secluded Wonder Lake to take in stunning reflections of Denali and the surrounding mountains | Keep binoculars handy to view arctic loons and eagles | Celebrate the deep-seated culture of Alaska's gold miners | Take a stroll after dinner in the glow of the midnight sun—at this latitude darkness settles in for a mere four hours a day.
Day 6 Soak in the sunrise as we depart our remote wilderness lodge to travel along the 92-mile Denali Park Road eastward through the low valleys and high mountain passes of this pristine landscape | Along the way enjoy views of colorful Polychrome Pass and the braided Teklanika and Toklat Rivers | Gaze out over the carpet of tundra that harbors a variety of delicate plants including bright wildflowers and berries | Complete your Denali education at the park's visitor center | This is an epic journey you'll always remember.
