1 | JUNEAU, AK
After picking you up at Juneau Airport, your driver will transport you to your centrally located hotel. Start exploring the state’s capital and enjoy dinner on your own, at one of many great restaurants (we’ve got plenty of suggestions). Accommodations are at the Four Points by Sheraton Juneau, in a Sea View Room.
2 | JUNEAU, AK
Two very special Alaskan experiences await you today. First, explore Juneau and the surrounding area on a jeep adventure, taking in the city’s must-see sites before settling into lunch at a beachfront cabin with views across the Inside Passage. Next, you’ll be up in a helicopter bound for the extraordinary world of ice fields and glaciers—and your own dog sledding adventure. Imagine you and 80 huskies on the vast Juneau Icefield. Accommodations are at the Four Points by Sheraton Juneau, in a Sea View Room.
4 | ADMIRALTY ISLAND, AK
Over the next three days, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy a number of memorable activities available at the Lodge, including kayaking, whale watching and other wildlife viewing. Fantastic saltwater sport fishing just minutes from the Lodge offers up all five species of wild Pacific salmon, cutthroat and steelhead trout, monster Alaskan halibut, and trophy-sized Dolly Varden. Accommodations are at Favorite Bay Lodge, in a Lodge Room.
5-7 | ADMIRALTY ISLAND, AK
Try your hand at more saltwater fishing (the Lodge is happy to process your catch for the trip home), or head to secluded waterways nearby for some freshwater fly-fishing or spin casting. Other options include kayaking into beautiful Mitchell Bay, watching whales feed in the Chatham Straits, and hiking in the Tongass National Rainforest—home to one of the highest populations of brown bear and bald eagles on the planet. Accommodations are at Favorite Bay Lodge, in a Lodge Room.
For your sixth day at the lodge consider joining in on a trip out to the inlets of Admiralty, Baranof, and Chichagof Islands to harvest Alaskan Dungeness crabs and Alaskan spot prawns. Set and retrieve traps, watch for whales, and possibly even spot bear feeding. At the end of the day, Chef Pierre will prepare a sampling of your catch. Accommodations are at Favorite Bay Lodge, in a Lodge Room.
After breakfast on your seventh and final day, a floatplane will return you to the Juneau Airport in time for your outbound flight. Safe travels!
