Day 1 Anchorage

Arrive at any time. Additional Notes: Please keep in mind, a lot of what there is to see and do in Alaska is weather-dependent. We give our CEOs the opportunity to adjust the schedule as needed based on weather. Included Activities: Arrival Day and Welcome Meeting

Day 2 Anchorage/Homer (1B)

Travel along the stunning 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 driving along the Turnagain Arm, or catch a glimpse of volcanoes across the Cook Inlet. Opt to enjoy a hike outside of Homer. Transport: Private Vehicle (4.00-5.00 hours, 355km)

Enjoy a free day in Homer. Walk the quaint streets and visit the museum, restaurants, and art galleries.

Day 4 Homer/Seward (1B)

Leave Homer and arrive at the tip of the Kenai Peninsula where the ice age still lingers. Get a guided, behind-the-scenes tour of the world-renowned Alaska SeaLife Center, an incredible marine science facility that frequently collaborates with the National Geographic Society on wildlife initiatives.

Settle in and meet our instructor from the Denali Education Center, and learn about the sometimes surprising, always extreme, conditions that shape life in Denali and define a subarctic ecosystem. Additional Notes: Depending on availability, we may stay in the accommodation at the Denali Education Center or at a nearby lodge. Please remember that due to the remoteness of the Denali area, the accommodation is simple, but allows you access to one of the most stunning wildlife areas in Alaska.
