Fairbanks, Denali National Park, Talkeetna, Anchorage and the Kenai Fjords

Plus the YUKON

Organised tours

Most cruiselines that feature one way cruises between Vancouver and Seward or Whittier have their own selection of Alaska Denali tours with variations in duration and content

Our preferred choice is to use Holland America Line as they have more tour options than any other and also have exclusivity in the Yukon. They also own their own hotels, railcars and coaches and are one of the largest employers in the State

In your planning, always try to include Fairbanks for 2 nights, with a similar amount of time in Denali National Park. Some tours include Denali State Park - this is not the same as the National Park. If you get Talkeetna featured, so much the better, albeit the number of tours  going here are few and far between. 

An overnight stay in Anchorage suffices for most, but even 2 nights here will give you enough to do.

The options of getting from Anchorage to Seward are by coach or train. The train is longer but far more scenic and an overnight stay in Seward is always to be recommended. Some ships depart from Whittier, a shorter transfer from Anchorage. However, Whittier does not have much to   offer at all. Seward is far better, giving you the opportunity to visit the stunning Kenai Fjords. T

You can consider other cruiseline operated tours with Celebrity, Princess, Royal Caribbean, NCL,
