Best of Alaska: On the way to Anchorage…

Before starting the next part of the journey, you’ll enjoy an included breakfast at the hotel.  After two days in Denali, it’s time to head south to Alaska’s most populous city. Forty percent of the state’s residents live in Anchorage and it’s the northernmost American city with more than 100,000 people.

Best of Alaska clients travel from Denali to Anchorage on a deluxe motorcoach. And remember, commentary by your tour director and driver, both local Alaskans, is also provided.

Take in the beautiful changing scenery, absorb the area’s history and learn about the culture from someone who has grown up there.

On the way to Anchorage, you’ll make a stop at Happy Trails Kennel, home of four-time Iditarod champion Martin Buser.

The Iditarod Sled Dog Race is the most popular sporting event in Alaska. Top mushers and their dogs are like celebrities there!
