DAY 1

Anchorage

On arrival at Anchorage International Airport you are met by our local Silversea Cruises representative and transferred to the Captain Cook Hotel. If your flight is scheduled to arrive in the morning or early afternoon, please be aware that the hotel's official check-in time is 3:00 p.m. You might wish to consider reserving an additional night to insure immediate occupancy upon arrival. Embraced by six mountain ranges and warmed by a maritime climate, Anchorage is alive year round with adventure, recreation, seasonal festivities, and sporting events - a modern city surrounded by spectacular wilderness. Lunch and dinner are at your own expense. Overnight at the Captain Cook Hotel or similar.

DAY 2

Anchorage/Denali

After breakfast at the hotel this morning board your deluxe motorcoach for the drive to Talkeetna. Once there you will board the Deluxe Dome Railcar Service for the scenic ride to Denali National Park. The highlight of today will be passing 300+ feet over Hurricane Gulch. Seating is under windows that extend 180 degrees around you, so you'll be able to thrill at the majesty of this and other sites along the way. There is even an open-air platform if you'd like to step outside and stretch your legs a bit. Lunch will be served in the dining salon at mid-day. You will be amazed at the variety of items the chefs can prepare - from delicious hot and cold Alaskan specialties to authentic reindeer chili! The train is scheduled to arrive in Denali at the end of the afternoon. Transfer to check-in to your hotel. Enjoy a reception with a mountain climber speaker. Afterwards you may wish to take advantage of the extended sunlight and enjoy an evening stroll through town. Dinner tonight is on your own. Overnight at the Grand Denali Lodge at Denali National Park or similar.

DAY 3

Denali

Enjoy a hearty Alaskan-style breakfast at the hotel early this morning before heading out deep into the National Park. As you join with other travelers from around the world on the fully-guided Tundra Wilderness Tour, you'll get an ongoing informational talk from your driver/guide, along with wildlife spotting and spectacular scenery. If the weather cooperates, you may even see the majestic summit of Mount Denali. A box lunch is included. Watch for moose between headquarters and Savage Campground and look for caribou anywhere above tree line. If you're lucky, Mount McKinley may make its first appearance around Mile 9. As you ride over high mountain passes you'll want to keep an eye out for Dall sheep or bears on the mountainsides. The highest point of the drive -literally and figuratively-is at Polychrome Pass. There, the Plains of Murie extend to the Alaska Range on the horizon. Just a bit further on is the Toklat River and Toklat Bridge. Your tour crosses over the infamous Polychrome Pass. There, you'll have a superb photo opportunity of Mount Denali - assuming the weather cooperates. Return back to the hotel, the balance of the day is at your leisure. Enjoy dinner on your own this evening. Overnight at the Grand Denali Lodge at Denali National Park or similar.

DAY 4

Denali/Girdwood

After an early breakfast this morning, depart Denali for the full-day scenic motor coach journey to Girdwood. Box lunch is included. Portions of your journey today parallel the rail line that you enjoyed only two days ago. The George Parks Highway passes through vast expanses of virgin land where moose, fox, wolves and brown bears reign supreme. Stop en-route at Martin Buser's home for an exclusive visit, where the four-time Iditarod Champion will regale you with tales of the Last Great Race and the wonderful champion dogs he raises and trains for mushing. Martin became fascinated with sled dogs while still a teen. He came to Alaska in 1979 to enhance his knowledge of care and training of sled dogs. He began working and training with long-time Alaskan mushers Earl and Natalie Norris and ran his first Iditarod in 1980. Continue on to the Hotel Alyeska located near the charming village of Girdwood. Breathe in the fresh, clean air and maybe catch a glimpse of local wildlife in a walk around the expansive property. Dinner is on your own. Overnight at the Alyeska Resort, Girdwood, AK.

DAY 5

Alyeska/Seward/Embarkation

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast this morning. Don't miss the opportunity to take the Aerial Tram for a view from the mountainside. An early lunch (on your own account) is recommended. Just after noon, transfer to the Girdwood Station for the exclusive rail journey down to Seward. Light snacks and beverages are available for purchase onboard the train. The staff and crew are looking forward to welcoming you aboard.
