Check out a sneak peak of our upcoming Alaskan adventure!

Discover Alaska, a rugged, mysterious, and breathtaking experience that will stay with you for a lifetime. From glaciers that seem to reach the clouds to the rare wildlife that makes Alaska the epic wilderness it is, you will be mesmerized by its untouched landscape.

We’ll begin our adventure in Anchorage, followed by Talkeetna, a small outpost town nestled at the base of North America’s tallest peak, Denali, then we’ll move on to Cordova, and finish the trip back in Anchorage.

Here are a few highlights from our itinerary!

A Birding Paradise

With over 500 species of birds, Alaska is home to some of the best birding in North America! On our first day in Anchorage, we’ll learn all about Audubon Alaska’s conservation plan of action on a brief walking tour and private talk to give you a taste of just much they do for Alaskan birds, other wildlife, and their habitats.

Grandeur of Glaciers

Rare Beauty

Experience the beauty of Byers Lake and its surrounding glacial mountains in Denali State Park, with a chance to see nesting Trumpeter Swans, loons, eagles, and foraging bears. Make sure you pay close attention in case you spot some of the rarely seen wolves that roam much of the park.

The “High One” — North America’s Highest Peak

Denali means “the high one”, which is fitting as it is North America’s tallest mountain. Being 102 years old, this mountain shows just how much our world changes year to year.

Visit a “Hidden Treasure” Coastal Town

Fly over Chugach National Forest to Cordova, a “hidden treasure” coastal town nestled at the head of Orca Inlet in Eastern Prince William Sound.

Rich in cultural and breathtaking natural landscapes, it is home to extensive miles of hiking trails, the Copper River Delta, and The Coper River Delta Shorebird Festival.

The Million Dollar Bridge

Along the Copper River and a remnant of the Northwestern Railroad, lies the “Million Dollar Bridge” just east of Cordova. Once being almost 200 miles of railroad, the line now offers magnificent panoramic views of Alaska’s glaciers, especially from the bridge. The rest of the scenic adventure along the tracks provides an expansive glimpse of marshes and wetlands with just enough stops for exploration and wildlife viewing.
