Several scenic opportunities and stops to observe possible wildlife through a high powered scope for close-up views. Take in the beauty of Talkeetna, Alaska featuring your choice of one of the Alaska tour adventures below:
Denali Flightseeing & Glacier Landing: Among the most breath taking tours you will ever experience, this flight features glaciers, rugged mountains and wildlife viewing. As ice covered spires reach to the clouds, glaciers plummet over the cliffs and huge caverns tell secrets of the ice age, you will be awe-struck, as the plane lands on a glacier and you step out to taste the pristine wilderness you came to Alaska to enjoy.
2-Hour River Safari Adventure: Travel 10 miles of river in a covered jetboat, viewing nesting bald eagles, beaver activity, and moose or bear. Enjoy a nature walk to an authentic trapper’s cabin, where a naturalist shares local folklore as well as flora and fauna details. Combining this with a panoramic view of Denali (Mt. McKinley) in the Alaska range, will all make for an unforgettable adventure of epic nature!
This evening, continue your Alaskan tour on to Denali National Park and a restful evening at a Lakeside Inn. A dinner stop will be offered at the finest restaurant in the arctic. (B)
