If your still planning a trip to Alaska this summer and are concerned about putting together the perfect trip or traveling independently, you may find that the perfect fit is a 7-night Escorted Tour of Alaska’s National Parks. The tour includes many of the best hotels, tours, and transportation found in Alaska Tour & Travel’s own custom travel packages but also includes many meals, luggage handling, and a professional escort. The National Park Escorted tour is a group tour with departures still available this summer starting on August 1st, August 15th and September 5th.
The seven night itinerary starts and finishes in Anchorage, convenient due to its being the location of Alaska’s largest airport. The tour includes some of Alaska’s best lodges including the Seward Windsong Lodge, the Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge, and in Denali the Mt. McKinley Village. There are several highly rated tours in the package including a day cruise out to Kenai Fjords National Park and in Denali National Park the Tundra Wilderness Tour. In Talkeetna, no tour is included in the package but there is plenty of time to either explore the town on own or take an excursion. While in Talkeetna, we’d highly recommend taking a Mt. McKinley glacier landing flight – an awesome trip that will fulfill an experience you didn’t even know was on your bucket list!
Most of the transportation between each destination is by deluxe motorcoach operated by excellent, professional drivers experienced in traveling Alaska’s highways. But, no vacation to Alaska would be complete without a ride on the railroad so the tour includes transportation on a top rated Private Dome Car between Talkeetna and Denali. The perfect segment to experience by rail as it showcases some of Alaska’s best scenery along the railroad corridor.
