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.
