Relax in vintage passenger coaches as you retrace the original route to the White Pass Summit, passing Bridal Veil Falls, Inspiration Point and Dead Horse Gulch. Enjoy a breathtaking panorama of mountains, glaciers, gorges, waterfalls, tunnels, trestles and historic sites. See the original Klondike Trail of ‘98 worn into the rocks, a permanent tribute to the thousands of souls who passed this way in search of fortune.
The Knik Glacier Tour takes you on a ride through a remote, glaciated, backcountry valley. Your expert guides will lead you across beautiful meadows, along streams, and past scenic mountains and waterfalls to the ultimate sight of Alaska’s mighty Knik Glacier. Refuel for the equally stunning trip back with a lunch at this incredible landmark.
After teaching you how to operate the ATV, your guide will lead you on a ride straight into mind-blowing territory! You’ll be taken though all kinds of scenic terrain, including sprawling valleys, fascinating old claim routes for mining, and dense forest, and ultimately seeing one of Alaska’s incredible mountainous glaciers. Don’t forget your camera, as you’re sure to witness wildlife and scenery like you’ve never seen before!
Experience brown bears (grizzly bears do not eat salmon) in ways you have never imagined! Fly to the best locations in the world for Alaska bear viewing & photography – Katmai National Park and Lake Clark National Park. On the brown bear tours (often mistaken for grizzly bears) you’ll be watching bears grazing, fishing, clamming, playing and raising their cubs. This is a trip that will become one of your favorite memories.
Explore the whales, wildlife, and glaciers of Kenai Fjords National Park on a stable catamaran. More time on the water allows the captain to seek out the best wildlife viewing opportunities in the area. Visit 1-2 active tidewater glaciers while cruising with a National Park Ranger. This tour is one that we will work with each of you to choose the best length. Some people love being on the water and will want to do a longer cruise while others would prefer fewer hours.
Let us help you book additional tours on your open days. Gold panning, fishing, float trips, helicopter trips, land on a glacier, kayak, and more. Add what is on your bucket list if we missed anything or just take a day to absorb in the beauty.
Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve is the largest national park in the U.S. at 13.2 million acres and a crossroads of several mountain ranges. Within the park, the Wrangell, Chugach and St. Elias ranges merge to create an alpine paradise that includes nine of the 16 highest peaks in the country. Enjoy a flight up and over this amazing scenery before landing in McCarthy.
In McCarthy, visitors will find lodging, restaurants, basic services, the interesting McCarthy-Kennecott Historical Museum and outfitters that will take them on a range of activities, from glacier trekking and whitewater rafting to flightseeing trips into the alpine heart of the national park. A shuttle van transports visitors the five miles up the road to the historic mining ruins at Kennicott. In recent years, the National Park Service has restored most of the mine buildings, and tours of the huge mill building, bunkhouses, a train depot, worker's cottages and the power plant are available. The white-trimmed red buildings stand out against the dramatic mountain-and-glacier backdrop at the mine site and the entire area is a photographer’s dream.
Several hiking trails depart from near the mine ruins, including the Root Glacier Trail, which leads directly to the surface of Root Glacier, and the Old Mine Trail, a challenging four-mile hike straight up the side of a mountain to the remains of a site where ore was loaded into ore cars and lowered down to the mill buildings below by tram.
