Alaska: Call of the Wild

2014 Prices From $3,697 for 8 Days - Tauck Bridges

Journeys by land, sea and air are the best ways to experience the natural treasures of America's 49th state on Tauck Bridges' family Alaska tour. After a night in Anchorage, it’s off to the northern interior for a jet boat ride, a wilderness hike and two nights at a wilderness lodge. Meet Alaskan huskies at a dog sled training facility and soar above the foothills of Mt. McKinley on a flightseeing adventure. Travel to Alaska’s alpine playground in Kenai for a two-night wilderness lodge stay and a choice of activities including kayaking, river rafting and a guided wilderness hike in the Kenai River region. Cruise the Kenai Fjords with a naturalist who points out wildlife along the way. During your final two-night stay in Girdwood, visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center to meet animals being rehabilitated (from moose to to grizzly bears), and pan for gold at the Crow Creek Mine.

The Tauck Difference

This was our first Tauck Tour. My husband, teenage son and daughter and I truly enjoyed meeting and traveling with everyone in our tour group. Flightseeing Mt. McKinley (Denali) and cruising to see Glaciers in Prince William Sound were SPECTACULAR! Our Tauck Director and motor coach driver were knowledgable, friendly and funny and made getting to see and experience the wonders of Southern Alaska effortless, interesting and fun! Now that's the way to travel!
