Is This Trip Right for You?

This moderately active program covers a fair amount of ground each day. Expect up to four hours walking every touring day. A few early wake-ups as well as one long 8-hour train ride to Denali are necessary to cover the territory. The pace is moderate, however you will encounter some uneven surfaces, stairs, and steps throughout the tour. The altitude in the National Parks varies and may be a consideration for those who have heart conditions or are otherwise affected by height. Flights to Anchorage may arrive late and depart very late (red eye).
