Day 3 - Denali National Park/Fairbanks by Train
Take in Denali National Park's alpine tundra and snowy mountains
on a 3-8 hour bus tour of the park, learning about the land and its
history along the way. Keep your eyes peeled for the wildlife that
inhabits the park, such as bears and moose, and look on the
mountainsides for glimpses at Dall sheep. As you travel further
into the park, soak in the sheer majesty of Mount Denali, North
America's tallest peak. In the afternoon, your journey continues by
rail, as you board the Denali Star once more for a ride to
Fairbanks. Known as "Alaska's Golden Heart City," Fairbanks is
beloved for its energy and warmth, as well as its beautiful
displays of northern lights during the winter
months. Overnight in Fairbanks.
*Due to a landslide in Denali National Park, the Denali
Park Road is closed at mile 43. The bus tour today will be 3-8
hours instead of the normal 7-8 hours.
