North America Alaska Land Tour

Alaska Coast to Denali Adventure

The 7-day Alaska Coast to Denali Adventure is an adventure through the magical worlds of two distinct Alaska national parks: Kenai Fjords & Denali National Park. Sleep in the backcountry at four unique Alaska lodges, each with their own luxury, charm and unparalleled access to nature.

From four lodges, explore the spectacular Kenai Fjords National Park by kayak and small boat tour, then venture into Denali National Park. Along the way, adventure in a canoe, go kayaking, take a nature walk or enjoy an optional flightseeing tour and visit the charming small towns of Seward and Talkeetna. Journey from the snow-capped peaks and emerald waters of the Kenai Peninsula to the glacier-clad Alaska Range and its sweeping upland tundra valleys. Head into the wilderness on foot or sea kayak, exploring the trails and shores used by gold seekers and trophy hunters. Hike up to see views of North America’s highest peak, Denali, and ride the Alaska Railroad through scenic road-less valleys.

Rest easy each night, in a special lodge with Alaskan charm. The Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge is the only accommodation located within Kenai Fjords National Park. The Seward Windsong Lodge is a peaceful retreat conveniently nestled among trees at the entrance to Kenai Fjords National Park. The Talkeetna Lodge sits just to the south of Denali National Park, with stunning views of Denali and the Alaska Range. And the Tonglen Lake Lodge offers a quiet corner that’s near to the Denali Park entrance but far enough away to feel secluded.

This 7-day overland, round-trip-from-Anchorage adventure is designed to complement any coastal cruise experience or stand alone as a memorable week in the Alaska backcountry. This is a great start to any Alaska national parks tour as it covers two important parks by land.
