Day 1: Anchorage

Arrive at any time. Welcome to America’s Last Frontier. Tonight channel all of the excitement of arriving in a new place by heading out on the town with your CEO and crew. Hang out and have some beers at Humpy's or 49 State Brewing Co and enjoy an evening filled with laughter, fun, and excitement as your adventure begins.

Day 2: Anchorage/Homer

Yes, you’re really in Alaska—stop thinking it’s all a dream and start to enjoy it! Traipse along the coast of the Kenai Peninsula with your travel family and maybe enjoy a hike outside of Homer. Then it’s back to the peninsula, where glaciers tumble down from the mountains into the ocean. Pick a friend to be on the lookout for beluga whales playing out at sea while you search for volcanoes across the Cook Inlet or vice versa. As you travel along the Turnagain Arm you're going to want pictures so make sure those cameras are charged.

Travel around the coast of the Kenai Peninsula, where glaciers tumble down from the mountains towards the ocean. Keep an eye out for beluga whales playing out at sea while travelling along the Turnagain Arm, or volcanoes across the Cook Inlet.

Day 3: Homer

It’s time to explore Homer—a long strip of land full of shops, art galleries, bars, restaurants, and beaches. (Although, you probably won’t be swimming much). Take advantage of your free day to mingle with the locals, find some hidden gems, small town charm, and many friendly people more than willing to swap stories. Or let nature be your guide and take a water taxi out to explore Kachemak Bay and go for a hike. Stay observant as wildlife including; bald eagles, moose, and sandhill cranes are sure to be close by.

While in Homer, keep a look out for some of the local wildlife including bald eagles, sandhill cranes, moose and shorebirds, to name a few.

Day 4: Homer/Seward

Say, “see ya later” in the morning to Homer before it’s back onto the road to the Kenai Peninsula, but this time it’s to explore the Kenai Fjords on a half-day wildlife and whale watching cruise. Afterwards, arrive at the tip of the peninsula where the ice age still lingers. Spend the day exploring this site to discover the fjords, their history, science and remote splendour.

Day 5: Seward

Spend a day taking in the sheer beauty of Kenai Fjords National Park. Head to the Harding Icefield, where almost 40 glaciers flow from. Challenge yourself to step out of your comfort zone. Try hiking the Exit Glacier and witness a very visual example of climate change. Kayak in the fjords or view impressive wildlife including, puffins, bald eagles, and peregrine falcons while you are out and about.

Day 6: Seward/Anchorage

Grab breakfast together as a group before heading back to Anchorage. The trip ends on arrival, but since you probably won’t be ready to go home yet we suggest extending the trip.
