About the tour
Alaska is a land filled with wild beauty and interesting destinations; enjoy the best of both worlds on this 6-day expedition. Your time here is marked by adventures through two great Alaskan cities and enjoying the peace and quiet of nature. Your journey begins in Anchorage, where you board the Alaska Railroad bound for Fairbanks. It is in Fairbanks that the true adventure begins, as you travel by plane to Bettles Lodge, just past the Arctic Circle. Here, without the distractions of the modern world, you have a chance to observe nature's most colorful display before traveling back to Fairbanks. Come, see what Arctic Alaska has to offer.
+ Additional nights at Bettles Lodge are available upon request, please ask a Rail Specialist for more details.
As your flight lands in Anchorage today, make your way to your centrally located hotel. Spend the remainder of the day exploring this first stop on your Alaskan adventure - perhaps with a tour of the Anchorage Museum or the Alaska Native Heritage Center. Alternatively, stroll through the eclectic downtown district, which features an array of locally owned businesses and restaurants. Overnight Anchorage.
