Day 3 : Delta Junction Farms
Today’s travels take us to the official “end of the Alaska Highway,” the friendly frontier of Delta Junction. Complimented by spectacular views of the Alaska Range, this picturesque rural setting lies in the fertile Tanana River Valley. Barley is the major feed grain grown here. We are given the unique opportunity to visit a family
run barley farm and mill called The Alaska Flour Company. Later we visit Mugrage Hay & Cattle for a chance to learn about raising livestock in the far north. This evening we enjoy delicious food as we’re treated to a true Alaskan experience, a traditional salmon bake. Fresh from Alaska’s icy waters, watch as skilled chefs expertly cook salmon on an open wood grill while prime rib is slow roasted. Beer battered Bering Sea cod rounds out the all-you-can-eat menu.

Day 4 : Denali National Park
Sit back and relax as we travel by motorcoach through the incredible Alaskan wilderness towards what is sure to be a highlight, Denali National Park. As we make our way south we cross the Parks Highway bridge over the Tanana River and begin to climb into the Alaska Range and arrive at our lodge accommodations in Denali National Park. After a delicious lunch, we begin our guided tundra tour of Denali National Park. An expert park naturalist will be with us to provide information as we look for wildlife in this unique ecosystem.

Take in the Alaskan scenery as we travel south from Denali to the Matanuska Valley, the heart of Alaskan agriculture.

Upon arrival in Anchorage we’ll check-in to the Anchorage Hilton for a two-night stay. L

In Seward we’ll board The Coastal Explorer for a narrated excursion on the waters of Kenai Fjords National Park. Our voyage will include a visit to a tidewater glacier.
