Itinerary

Day 1 Anchorage, Alaska - Tour Begins

Your journey opens in Anchorage, an urban enclave surrounded by wilderness. It’s the most popular city in the great state of Alaska. From here, set off on a true frontier adventure.

Day 2 Anchorage - Whittier - Anchorage

Today, travel south hugging the dramatic shoreline along Turnagain Arm, one of the most beautiful stretches of highway in America. In Whittier, embark on a cruise of Prince William Sound and Blackstone Bay, home to seven glaciers, tumbling waterfalls and abundant wildlife. Enjoy lunch onboard during this fully narrated scenic adventure. Then you are invited into the wheelhouse to meet the Captain who has been cruising the Sound for many years. This evening, join your fellow travelers for a welcome dinner at a local restaurant in Anchorage.

Day 3 Anchorage - Tok

Today’s drive to the small town of Tok takes you through incredible landscapes, including Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve, the largest national park/preserve in the United States. Overnight in Tok, an old stopover for travelers coming from or heading to Canada on the Alaska Highway.

Day 4 Tok - Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada

A picturesque day awaits in Whitehorse, the capital of Canada’s Yukon, an eclectic city filled with miners, artisans and adventurers. En route, ride by Kluane National Park, the “crown jewel” of the Canadian national parks system, and enjoy the spectacular views.

Day 5 Whitehorse - Skagway - Whitehorse

Gold! Travel back to a time when dreams of a big payday were on everyone’s mind. Ride to Skagway, the gateway to the Klondike. Revel in tales of the gold rush as you independently explore the numerous historic buildings still intact from that bygone era.

Day 6 Whitehorse - Carmacks - Dawson City

Today’s final destination is Dawson City. En route, stop in the village of Carmacks to see the famous Five Finger Rapids mentioned in Jack London’s novel The Call of The Wild. Carmacks is named after George Carmack, the man who struck gold in 1896, sparking the frenzy that turned Dawson City into the center of the Klondike Gold Rush. Within a few years, the population grew from nearly zero to 40,000. After the gold rush, the population plummeted…leaving behind a ghost town.

Day 7 Dawson City

Get to know Dawson City’s compelling history on a fascinating tour by coach that includes Bonanza Creek, site of the first gold strike; and the last sternwheeler, the SS Keno, which once transported silver, zinc and lead. This afternoon, enjoy some leisure time to independently explore this rustic gold rush town.

Day 8 Dawson City - Chicken, Alaska - Fairbanks

An exciting day awaits as you ride along the Top of the World Highway. Discover why it rivals all other scenic roads. Stop in Chicken, one of the last surviving gold rush towns of Alaska. Share a laugh in this small village that retains its frontier spirit. Your home for the next two nights is Fairbanks, a city referred to as the “land of the midnight sun.”

Day 9 Fairbanks

This morning, enjoy a city tour of Fairbanks that includes a stop at the Trans-Alaska Pipeline. Your afternoon features a scenic sternwheeler cruise on the Chena River. This 3-hour journey takes you into the heart of Alaska and introduces a family who has made the rivers of Alaska a way of life. See a floatplane take off alongside the boat and learn about the kennels that are the home of an Iditarod winner. Tonight, dive into life here and enjoy a local salmon bake featuring delicious all-you-can-eat Alaskan salmon.

Day 10 Fairbanks - Denali

A delightful day of sightseeing awaits. Board a deluxe domed railcar and enjoy breakfast on your way to Denali National Park. En route, embrace the elegance of first-class Goldstar service. Upon arrival in Denali, the remainder of the afternoon is at leisure to relax or independently explore this magnificent area. Tonight, enjoy dinner and a show at the Music of Denali Dinner Theater where the history of Denali is performed by your wait staff.

Day 11 Denali National Park

Travel over 50 miles into the heart of Denali National Park to begin your Tundra Wilderness tour.* This adventure offers a wide range of incredible scenery, narrated history and some of the best opportunities to view the park’s wildlife.

Day 12 Denali - Talkeetna - Anchorage

Relax on your way back to Anchorage. En route, stop in the charming town of Talkeetna. Take a step back in time as you explore the downtown area, a National Historic Site. Perhaps you’ll stop at the historic Nagley’s General Store. Founded in 1921, Nagley’s is still open for business and is known to be the longest continually operated general store in the region. Tonight, celebrate your Alaskan adventure during a farewell dinner.

Day 13 Anchorage - Tour Ends

Your tour comes to a close today, leaving you with many wonderful memories of your adventure.

Had a river cruise booked for May 2020 on the Danube but unfortunately because of Covid 19 it was cancelled. I had no issues in getting a full refund for my vacation. I will definitely rebook with Collette when things return to normal...

Recently, our dream trip to Italy was canceled due to covid-19. Collette's superior customer service responded to my inquiry by message and phone call literally within minutes. Their team was sympathetic and informative with regards to our refund details. Thank you Collette. We realize this is also a difficult time for your company as well. We hope to rebook our trip to Italy with you again one day!

I do recommend Collette, had two great dream trips to AUSTRALIA/NEW ZEALAND and AFRICA. Was planning to go to MOROCCO this Spring but trip was cancelled. The way they handled the cancellation of the trip did not make me feel like a valued customer. I wanted to keep the reservation and move it to next year. I asked that I receive back the $7000 plus final payment I just made and they could keep the initial payment to hold the trip. Collette basically said I could move the reservation till next year and get no money back or just cancel the trip. They wanted to keep my total payment in order for them to move the trip. They would rather me cancel my trip, with no chance of trying to keep my business, go through the rebooking process, hoping I rebook, then just move it and return all of my final payment. This was a big disappointment from a company I have had a great travel experience with and have recommended to my friends. I want to take many more trips that Collette offers but I am not sure now.

During this coronavirus we had a trip to Italy my mom is 89 and we unfortunately didn’t take out the insurance and they have said they can only give us only 30% on the land and zero on air fare back and I just think it’s poor business in a situation that is so unprecedented
