The Alaskan Frontier

There is a place that is majestic, wild, and breathtaking. A place known as the Last Frontier, is the home to untamed untouched wilderness.  While ice only covers 5% of Alaska's surface, there are more than 100,000 glaciers.  Packed with staggering mountains, big game wildlife, historic mining communities,  and towering icebergs do you need any more reason to visit Alaska? 

Road tripping through the remote wilderness and exploring the endless landscapes is what this trip has to offer.  It is time to live for the moments you can't put into words.

Join us on a 6-day 7-night magical journey around Alaska and discover what dreams are made of.

Trip Summary ** this is a teaser itinerary 

 

Over the course of 6 days we will fly into Anchorage and road trip on the most famous Alaska roadways with unimaginable scenery along the way.  Utilizing two vans will allow us to stop and jump out at every ounce of remote beauty we encounter. 

 

Starting fresh on October 2, 2020 we will travel south of Anchorage to cities such as Seward and Whittier.  We will experience the Prince William Sound, numerous glaciers, and Whittier's Harbor.  Moving back North to  Talkeetna, allows us to get a glance of Denali.  Depending on weather and regulations we will see if more of Denali is feasible.  Driving will be broken up by lots of stopping and we will experience all that the beaten path has to offer.  Each night we will attempt to chase the Northern Lights as they are strongest after September when Alaska has dark nights again.  Hopefully we see some bears and moose but wilderness is as unpredictable as the weather.  Ending back in Anchorage will end the most epic of road tripping journeys. 

Be adventurous and take a flightseeing tour and witness the epic panoramic landscape. Join us on a boat ride to sail around the glaciers and see wildlife at its finest.  Play with sledding dogs and maybe take a ride. Cozy up at night and enjoy the iconic ambiance of Alaskan Cities and enjoy frontier living at its finest.  Allow the solitude of nature to fill your soul on this magical trip exploring as much as Alaska has to offer

Getting there

  • I offer discounted group airline travel out of Washington D.C and surrounding airports from Hampton Roads as long as there is a minimum of 10 travelers participate.  This is included in the package price if you choose this option. I will make all the arrangements. You will be required to make your own travel arrangements to and from the DC airport (or whatever airport I get the best deal out of).   All airlines will be well known or ones I have personally flown on. Seats will be chosen after ticket is issues which is usually 60 days prior to trip.  Group seats are all coach with options to upgrade at your own expense after tickets are issues.   Group airline requires a $200 non refundable deposit to secure your ticket which is due 60 days after initial deposit date. There will be a payment schedule based on the airline contract of when the final balance is due. I will communicate this when I have it. Once the group tickets are paid for, they are all issued to each individual traveler.

  • Typical group savings have airfares with bags included and up to a 50% savings over individual travel. We do need 10 people to participate in group travel in order to secure the rates.  If we do not have 10 people airline tickets are booked by the individual traveler and pricing is variable dependent on airline travel costs. 

 

  • If you book your own airline ticket you will need to ensure you are in Alaska for pick up with the group by 7pm on October 1, 2020. 

 

  • If you are not able to get to Washington DC for air travel, I will be more than happy to search airline fare close to our group rates, get you to the destination and meet up with the group
