The 7-day Alaska Coast to Denali Journey is an adventure through the magical worlds of two distinct Alaska national parks: Kenai Fjords & Denali National Park. Sleep in the backcountry at four unique Alaska lodges, each with their own luxury, charm and unparalleled access to nature.

From one of four lodges, explore the spectacular Kenai Fjords National Park by kayak and small boat tour, then venture deep into the heart of Denali National Park to the region known as Kantishna. Along the way, adventure in a canoe, go kayaking, take a nature walk or enjoy an optional flightseeing tour and visit the charming small towns of Seward and Talkeetna. Journey from the snow-capped peaks and emerald waters of the Kenai Peninsula to the glacier-clad Alaska Range and its sweeping upland tundra valleys. Head into the wilderness on foot or sea kayak, exploring the trails and shores used by gold seekers and trophy hunters. Hike up to see views of North America's highest peak, Denali, and ride the Alaska Railroad through scenic road-less valleys.

This 7-day overland, round-trip-from-Anchorage adventure is designed to complement any coastal cruise experience or stand alone as a memorable week in the Alaska backcountry. This is a great start to any Alaska national parks tour as it covers two important parks by land. Contact the Alaska experts at AdventureSmith Explorations to learn how to tie-in this 7-day Alaska Coast to Denali Journey with one of our small ship cruises into Glacier Bay National Park for the ultimate experience!
