Alaska Adventure – Aug. 28–Sept. 4, 2023
Traveling in Alaska is like traveling to no other place on Earth. There are 586,000 square miles here, and almost that many possibilities. You will be delighted when you spot a grizzly bear with a cub or two in tow, or that instant when the silence of a misty fjord is shattered by a pod of giant humpback whales, breaching high into the air, then crashing back against the sea. Float by crystal glaciers, toward the midnight sun, remember: This is Alaska. This is real. This is the adventure of a lifetime.
Today we leave for a fun-filled adventure in Alaska. Once we arrive in Anchorage we will check into the excellent Lakefront Hotel and enjoy a dinner together for the first night of our tour.
We will check out of the Lakefront Hotel and get on the train to Seward and the Kenai Fjords. Once there, we will embark on a boat tour of the Fjords and take in the extraordinary views and observe the incredible wildlife surrounding us. Once our day of adventure is over, we will head to the Seward Windsong Lodge and have the evening free to explore and relax.
