GLOBUS 2023: Spectacular Alaska! (AJ)
10 Day Tour from Anchorage to Anchorage
From mountains to mammals, everything is bigger in Alaska. In the 20+ hours of summer sunlight a day, even the produce grows to fair-winning proportions. Of course, the 70-pound Matanuska Valley cabbage is just the beginning of the big sights this sun-soaked tour of Alaska has to offer. Just wait until you cruise along the three-mile face of the Columbia Glacier, sail by the calving tidewater glaciers of Kenai Fjords National Park, and ascend into Denali National Park - home of North America's highest peak - by way of the world famous Alaska Railroad. Other big moments include panning for gold at Fairbanks' Gold Dredge #8, seeing a mushing demonstration at the home of an Iditarod champion, and witnessing the grandest of wildlife from Alaska's majestic coasts to its monumental crests. While spotting a giant whale, caribou, moose, or grizzly might be 'no biggie' to the locals, we think you'll agree, this Alaska vacation is huge.
