Great National Parks of Alaska

AdventureSmith’s Great National Parks of Alaska is the ultimate land-and-sea trip, exploring three national parks in Alaska via small ship, day boat, train and wilderness lodge. Over 19 days, visit Glacier Bay, Kenai Fjords and Denali National Parks, with all accommodations and transfers included for a seamless best-of Alaska experience.

Over the first 8 days of the trip, you’ll be aboard the 76-guest Wilderness Discoverer or 74-guest Wilderness Explorer expedition ships sailing in the Inside Passage, embarking round-trip from Juneau, Alaska. Your destination: Glacier Bay National Park, which covers more than three million acres with open ocean and fjord coastlines at its perimeter. View impressive tidewater glaciers and hike in old-growth forest and glacial outwash fields. Venture farther than 99 percent of visitors thanks to two full days exploring within Glacier Bay National Park. Enjoy the time and flexibility that a small ship provides to sail into small coves, seek out wildlife viewing opportunities and kayak and stand-up paddleboard right from the ship.

The next stop: Denali National Park. Your home base here is Camp Denali, the premier Denali accommodation that offers the best way to see the mountain from within the park. The camp is located at the end of the 92-mile park road on family-owned land, surrounded by close to six million acres of Denali National Park and Preserve. Its longstanding history has awarded it the exclusive right to lead commercially guided hikes into the wilderness core of Denali National Park, as well as a host of other activities near the lodge including biking, canoeing and fishing. Your home base will be one of Camp Denali’s 18 individual guest cabins. A trip aboard the historic Alaska railroad brings you back to Anchorage, followed by a scenic coastal train ride to Seward on the Alaska Railroad the following day.

Complete your Great National Parks of Alaska journey with a grand finale at Kenai Fjords National Park, where your home base is Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge, the only lodge located within the park. To get here, travel on the Coastal Classic Train route from Anchorage to Seward, then journey by scenic boat ride to access the remote lodge. From this spectacular setting, on the shore of a protected lagoon in full view of Pedersen Glacier, wildlife viewing opportunities abound, as do activity choices. Sea kayak and canoe on protected waters, hike and beachcomb. Each day, choose the activities that match your interest and energy level.

The experts at AdventureSmith Explorations have designed this grand journey to be as seamless of an experience as possible, but other options to explore all three parks can be custom arranged. Contact an AdventureSmith Alaska Specialist to learn more about the Great National Parks of Alaska and other variations of the journey.

Day 2
MON - Tracy Arm

Take an early peek outside: fjord cliffs reach skyward, floating ice and deep u-shaped valleys. There’s no abracadabra here. Mother Nature’s magic is real. Cruise past harbor seals and their pups lounging on chunks of ice. Tracy Arm delivers with the cotton-candy blue twin Sawyer Glaciers of its furthest reaches. Tides permitting, the skiff driver knows the ropes and guides the skiff along. It’s a mash-up of towering walls, temperamental currents and the Coastal Mountains. So many waterfalls. Mountain goats show off fancy footwork on the cliffs—look for them.

Day 3
TUE - Frederick Sound

Humpbacks beeline it here each season to feed on krill, zooplankton and herring. Watch for whales feasting in these abundant glacial waters. Hang out and enjoy the show. Cruise past Five Fingers LighthouseAlaska’s oldest light station—and The Brothers Islands, where sea lions nap on rocky nobs. Tonight, toast to a whale of a day in Alaska.

Day 4
WED - Icy Strait

Before doing anything, look out the window. From kelp-lined channels to hemlock and spruce forests, every inch of this far northwest corner is worth exploring. And today’s adventures promise to be as big as the water is deep. Seals and sea lions haul out on rocky outcroppings, resting before they disappear in the water to search for food. If the tides are right, head out in the skiff with one of the guides for a closer exploration of the rugged shore, or perhaps, make it all the way to George Island. Whether wilderness trekking, skiffing or paddling, the expedition team guides the way.

Day 5
THU - Glacier Bay National Park

This crown jewel of America’s national parks covers 3.3 million acres (that’s a tad smaller than the state of Connecticut). Let that sink in. Most visitors see the same sliver of the park as everyone else. Instead, go the furthest and explore parts that 99% of visitors never go to and take two days to do it. Get started! Taylor Bay sea stacks and rocky shores make for good adventure. Or hike the outwash field of glaciers winding down the Fairweather Mountain Range. The cool breeze off the nearby snow and icefields is energizing. If motoring over to Dundas Bay, keep an eye out for bears, humpbacks, and with luck, a wolf sighting. Kayak the bay. Bushwhack into the forest. Discover Glacier Bay outback.

Day 6
FRI - Glacier Bay National Park

The camera’s memory card needs plenty of room. South Marble Island is abuzz with activity. Rare sea birds, black oystercatchers and orange-beaked tufted puffins can’t be missed. A colony of raucous sea lions adds to the hubbub. They add a distinct aroma to the air, too. Tucking into silent Tidal Inlet—the stomping grounds for bears, wolves, mountain goats, eagles—the backdrop is spectacular. At the end of the western-most arm of the bay sits Margerie and Grand Pacific Glaciers. And possible views of glacial calving. Take it all in on deck.

Day 7
SAT - Chatham Strait

Find a perch on the bridge with the captain or with the guides on the bow, and watch for whales and other creatures before tucking into Port Frederick or another inlet in the Tongass National Forest. Any spot is a good one to pull over and stretch the legs. Hike, paddle, or skiff through this remote corner with bears on the shoreline, seals bobbing on the surface and welcoming boughs of moss in the trees. Back on the boat, there’s a treat in store—the farewell dinner and some special mentions from the crew.

Days 10 - 12
TUE/WED/THU - Denali National Park

Spend the next three days exploring the heart of Alaska’s premier wilderness. A naturalist guide from Camp Denali leads you through alpine and tundra environments along rivers, lakes or ridge-top trails with magnificent panoramic views of the Alaska Range. The beautiful scenery of Denali National Park is also home to grizzly bear, black bear, caribou, Dall sheep, wolves, arctic fox and moose. Activities offered at Camp Denali include hiking on daily outings that explore Denali’s trail-less terrain. The lodge’s longstanding history in the area has awarded it the opportunity to hike into the wilderness core of Denali National Park; its designation as the park’s historic operator means it holds the exclusive rights to commercial guided hiking. Each evening, staff naturalists and visiting specialists present evening programs to enhance your understanding and appreciation of the Far North.

In addition to daily guided hikes, there are numerous independent activities you can pursue. There is a dock and five canoes at Wonder Lake for your use during your stay. Paddle across the lake to pick blueberries or take a nap in the tundra. Drift in silence into the reflection of Denali. The Kantishna air strip is just a few miles down the road and Camp Denali staff can assist in arranging flightseeing tours around Denali with Kantishna Air Taxi. Trail and topographic maps, self-guided interpretive booklets and bikes to ride on the park road may help you strike off on your own. There is fishing gear, walking sticks, daypacks, raingear and more for you to borrow. Bring your curiosity to Camp Denali’s resource center, with its natural history exhibits, plant, animal and insect collections, resource library and microscope. If quiet relaxation is your ambition, the living room at each lodge contains an extensive library of literature related to Denali, Alaska and the Far North, as well as photography and field guides. Pick out a book, stake out a comfortable seat, and relax by a cheery fire.

"This Was Certainly One of the Top Three Trips"

This was certainly one of the top three trips we have taken in our 35 years we have been married. I'm waiting a while to put it into perspective, but it is probably the top one. We got to see beautiful scenery, wildlife, and learned a lot about the places and animals we were seeing.

"PRICELESS!!!"

Having the ability to adjust course and curtail forward progress due to wildlife sightings were... what is the saying ... PRICELESS !!! Anchoring 1/4 mile off glaciers was without a doubt a prime reason to take this cruise versus a large vessel cruise. There is no way I would have taken a trip to Alaska on a large vessel. Our Adventure Specialist, Leslie, did an excellent job of preparing us for the cruise, her understanding of our needs and expected experiences was very much appreciated.
