Travel along the stunning coast of the Kenai Peninsula, where glaciers tumble down from the mountains towards the ocean.

Today, set out by catamaran to explore the Kenai Fjords National Park, viewing glaciers, seabird colonies, puffins, sea lions, and whales (and if we're lucky, orcas). The evening is at your leisure. Opt to go hiking or explore the town.

Day 6: Seward/Denali National Park and Preserve

Enjoy a scenic drive, stopping for photos along the way. In the afternoon, reach the Denali National Park area, known for its diversity of wildlife and the highest mountain in North America, Denali (formerly called Mt McKinley).

Day 7: Denali National Park and Preserve

This morning, learn about the sometimes surprising, always extreme, conditions that shape life in Denali and define a subarctic ecosystem.
