Want To Spend More Time in Alaska?
We will have options for those wanting a bit more time in Alaska. For those only wanting one prenight, we will work with you individually to set that up.
Five to six night private cruise tour:
Right now, this is the proposed tour, though we may make some slight changes.
For those interested in five-six nights in Alaska, we will start on August 21 or 22 in Fairbanks. Only optional tours will be offered here. We will be able to help with setting up any optional tours as well as suggestions of activities to do.
August 23, we will transfer from the hotel to the rail depot where we will take the Wilderness Express Dome Rail to Denali National Park, then transfer to the hotel. Optional excursions will be available from arrival in the early afternoon.
August 24 and 25, we will be in Denali with a variety of optional excursions available. August 24 is when we will be putting together an all-day trip into Denali for all who wish to join. We didn’t want to set up activities that some may not be interested in which would just add to the cost of the vacation. Your agent will be able to help set up any activities.
August 26, we will transfer to Talkeetna, having the evening to ourselves to tour the city, with an overnight in Talkeetna.
On August 27, we will we will leave Talkeetna for Seward on a deluxe motor coach in the morning, with a stop in Anchorage. You’ll have time to explore Anchorage before continuing on to Seward with a stop at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. We will board the Celebrity Millennium for our cruise to Vancouver later that day.
Pricing is not available yet but we will update you as we get more information.
Need More Time for Canada?
Several from our previous group had opted to travel on Rocky Mountaineer to Banff following the cruise. For a shorter trip to Banff, you will start with an overnight in Vancouver. The following morning, you will get onboard the train to Kamloops. Breakfast and Lunch are included. The next day will take you from Kamloops to Lake Louise on the train, again, with breakfast and lunch included. You’ll have the next morning to explore Lake Louise on your own before boarding a motor coach to take you on a tour of the Yoho National Park before arriving in Banff. Following your night in Banff, you’ll have a tour of Banff, including a trip on the Banff Gondola before heading to Kanaskis for a Panoramic Helicopter Tour over the Canadian Rockies. Finally, you’ll transfer to Calgary for one last night before your flight home.
