Experience the Splendor of Autumn in Alaska

Premium photo opportunities abound during this seven-day trip to Alaska. This special tour is offered only once the multitude of colors start to appear during the beginning of Alaska’s short but sweet fall season. Picture spectacular fall colors against white freshly dusted snow-peaked mountains, red carpeted tundra, and golden birch leaves glowing in the sunlight! This journey is a photographer’s dream. 

A Breathtaking Display of Natural Beauty

—Gary C.

“AAU Denali Fall Colors Tour was a great experience. It was really a pleasurable trip that we will remember. Our small group of 7 was just the right size and we felt like we were getting personal attention.”

“The Fall Colors Tour is the very best tour to do. In addition to the glaciers, Denali flightseeing, cruising the Fjords, Iditarod mushing, traveling to the icebergs, you will get to see the vibrant purples, reds, yellows, greens that are Fall in Alaska. This trip couldn’t be beat.”

—Jayme C.
