The grandeur of Alaska cannot be overstated. It is wilderness in its purest form, a land where nature's magnificence humbles even the most seasoned traveler.

 

Come explore the land of the midnight sun! This seven day trip includes visits to Alaska’s amazing highlights: Anchorage, Talkeetna, Seward, Kenai Fjords and Denali National Park. Students will bike, hike, and paddle in the never-ending daylight, gaining in depth knowledge about glaciers, indigenous people, and wildlife—from moose to grizzly bears! Alaska is also home to North America’s largest peak, Mount McKinley. This 20,320 foot, awe-inspiring mountain sits in the middle of Denali National Park where students will spend the day hiking. You’ll never forget your time spent in America’s last frontier!
