Alaska, perhaps more than any other region in North America, is cloaked in a mystical aura that ignites the imagination. To some extent, that aura obviously is the product of Alaska’s incredible, incomparable natural beauty and physical magnificence. Its mountains, glaciers, coastline and wilderness are without equal. Alaska’s irresistible attraction is that it symbolizes the “Final Frontier,” a last opportunity to experience the wilderness in its most pristine, unspoiled expression. Alaska still promises the opportunity to see a bear scramble through the brush of a mountain valley or to sit in a kayak and watch a massive glacier calve ice off its face into the fjords below. On this tour we will walk along the famed Iditarod Trail, explore box canyons from the coast, hike on glaciers and icefields, and travel by boat to explore the Kenai Fjords.
