Wildlife & Wilderness

This trip includes three nights at North Face Lodge, allowing you to experience Denali National Park and towering Denali itself from myriad vantage points. Highlights include a flightseeing journey, the luxurious train ride from Fairbanks, and a seven-hour wildlife tour deep into the park. Over three nights at Winterlake Lodge, you’ll be immersed in an entirely different landscape. The isolated oasis, a fly-in lodge, overlooks Finger Lake and the Tordrillo Mountains. Guided walks and leisurely explorations are complemented by such helicopter-supported activities as river rafting, sportfishing, and glacier trekking. Finally, a stop at Redoubt Bay Bear Sanctuary en route to Anchorage allows for up-close brown bear viewing.
