Day 1

Anchorage

Spend the day exploring Alaska's biggest city. There is lots to do: Visit the museum, enjoy a walk along the waterfront or explore the downtown area. If you happen to be there on Saturday or Sunday the downtown market is worth a visit.

Day 2

Anchorage to Denali (231 miles)

Drive on the Glenn and Parks Highways to Denali National Park. The road is paved the whole way. Enjoy the spectacular scenery along the way. Weather permitting you can catch a great view of Mt. Denali.

Day 3

Denali to Fairbanks (125 miles)

In the morning, you take a 6 to 8 hour narrated bus tour into Denali National Park. This is one of your best opportunities to spot wildlife, including bears, moose, caribou or even wolves! A box lunch and beverage are included. After the wildlife tour you continue your journey northwards to Fairbanks.

Day 4

Fairbanks to Paxson (175 miles)

Drive on the Richardson Highway from Fairbanks to Paxson. As you leave Fairbanks, you follow the Tanana and the Delta Rivers up into the Alaska Range mountains. Stop and watch the salmon spawn on the other side of the pass and take in the impressive landscape!

Day 5

Paxson to Matanuska (188 miles)

This beautiful drive from Paxson to the Matanuska Area leads you along the Glenn Highway, declared as National Scenice Byway in 2002. Scenic views of mountains as well as the Matanuska Glacier will showcase nature's beauty today.

Day 6

Matanuska to Seward (242 miles)

The Glenn Highway closely parallels the Matanuska River towards Anchorage, and after a possible lunch stop in Alaska's biggest city, you continue southward on the Seward Highway to Seward. The highway offers outstanding sightseeing and wildlife viewing opportunities, including spawning salmon and a number of good hiking trails. Seward is a small fishing village with an excellent aquarium, the Alaska SeaLife Center.
