Alaska by land, sea or train…or all three!
Alaska is where you will have amazing experiences and incredible views at every turn! This intriguing state offers amazing vistas and just about anything that you might want to do. Experience bear, moose, wolves, and other wildlife as you climb, hike and kayak in the exciting areas of the inside passage, or try flightseeing over the glaciers!
It has been said that, "Alaska has more mountains than buildings, more wildlife than people, and more glaciers than stoplights!” This is something we believe you will find to be very true during your visit.
One of the highlights of Alaska is the great Denali National Park, which is over 6 million acres. The best way to visit Denali is to step aboard the fabulous Alaska glass domed-ceiling Gold Star train from Anchorage or Fairbanks onto the entrance of the national park. Enjoy an exciting visit and experience the endless activities for a few days, before you venture deep into the forest to immerse yourself in this great playground of nature.
The cities of Anchorage, Juneau, and Ketchikan are home to informative museums that are rich in the culture and history of this region, along with great shopping venues, and some of the freshest of cuisine in the restaurants. The Kenai Peninsula is about 90% wilderness and their beautiful coastline offers prime marine life viewing. Visit Fairbanks, which brings you closer to the Arctic Circle. Here you can try gold panning, dog sledding, and exploring along the beautiful Chena River.
Watch whales breach from the deck of your ship, see glaciers up close on the inside passage, view caribous, moose, and wolves roaming, watch grizzly bears at play, and experience the most untouched, pristine land of the United States!
Frontiers can arrange your exciting Alaskan adventure that will include any number of activities. Allow us to plan your sailing on the inside passage where you can view glaciers up close, bushwhack through the rainforest, catch a lumberjack show in Ketchikan, or even a flight from Fairbanks to the Arctic Circle!
