Witness the incredible majesty of the Alaskan wilderness on this short adventure.

Encounter killer whales, bears and playful sea otters on this journey into Alaska’s icy, but beautiful, heart. From Anchorage to Homer, journey past boreal forests, around mountain ranges and into the spectacular Resurrection Bay. Stroll along the remote beaches of Homer and count puffins nesting in the rugged cliffs. Kayak past icebergs in Seward and experience the majestic calm of this vast wilderness.

Day 1: Anchorage
Welcome to Alaska! This is an arrival day, and there is nothing planned until a welcome meeting in the hotel lobby at 6pm tonight. If you’re going to be late, please inform the hotel reception. We’ll be collecting your insurance details and next of kin information at this meeting, so please ensure you have all these details to provide to your leader. Located in south-central Alaska on the shores of Cook Inlet, Anchorage is a unique urban environment situated in the heart of the wilderness. As there’s no time spent in Anchorage on this trip we recommend you arrive a few days early to see the sights. If you need help booking extra accommodation, our reservations team will be able to assist (subject to availability).

Day 2: Homer
Depart Anchorage and take a scenic drive along the Turnagain Arm and the National Forest Scenic Byway on your way to Homer. This route is considered one of the most scenic drives in the world. Homer will be your gateway to the Kenai Peninsula. Keep an eye on the water because today you might snatch a glimpse of beluga whales.

Notes: The drive covers 380 kilometres and takes approximately 5.5 hours.

Day 3: Homer
Make the most of a free day in Homer. Perhaps explore the area by kayak and watch sea otters, or visit the beautiful rock arches, cliffs and remote beaches surrounding the city. Homer is a good place for animal watching, with bald eagles, puffins and moose plentiful in the area. Some of the activities around Homer are expensive, but they are once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. The Kachemak Bay Adventure included sea kayaking, a tour of the old Russian settlement of Seldovia, and a flight over the bay. The Bear Viewing Flight can sometimes sell out, but if you can afford it, the feedback from previous travellers to this area is that it is a highlight.

Day 4: Seward
Journey to the coastal town of Seward and the surrounding Kenai Fjords National Park (approximately 4 hours; 125 kilometres). Seward is one of Alaska’s oldest towns, as well as one of the most scenic. The town itself boasts galleries, boutique shops and a bustling harbour, but it’s perhaps best known as a gateway to exploring Kenai Fjords National Park. On arrival, jump into a water taxi across to Resurrection Bay, where you will spend the next two nights staying in a hostel. This accommodation is so remote it can only be accessed by kayak or water taxi.

Day 5: Seward
Enjoy a free day to explore the stunning Kenai Fjords National Park and Resurrection Bay. Head out among the fjords and glaciers, keeping an eye out for humpback and killer whales, sea otters, harbour seals, sea lions, and puffins. In the evening, enjoy your last night here before heading to Anchorage in the morning.

Day 6: Anchorage
Return to Anchorage via the Turnagain Arm (approximately 2.5 hours; 200 kilometres). There will be time to explore some of this Arctic wonderland, with its numerous lakes, glaciers and fascinating coastline. The area is also famous for its many anglers, who follow the salmon on their annual migration up the peninsula’s many wide rivers. This trip finishes on arrival in Anchorage at approximately 5pm. For those wishing to stay on in Anchorage, please speak to our reservations team who can assist in booking extra nights of accommodation.
