This year, John Hall’s Alaska is launching an Untamed Alaska itinerary that will explore some of the most picturesque off-the-beaten-path destinations in the Last Frontier by road, sea and rail. The new, 11-day tour travels from Anchorage to the Denali National Park and Preserve, and then south to Prince William Sound. Highlights of the trip include a ride on the historic Alaska Railroad in premier GoldStar service, a day of exploration and time with locals in the small hamlet of Talkeetna, and a private tour of Wolf’s Den Kennel to meet local musher, Mike Santos, his family and their team of Iditarod dogs. During the tour, guests will also have the opportunity to go on a 92-mile wildlife tour into Denali National Park and Preserve searching for moose, caribou, Dall sheep and bears, spend two nights at Denali Backcountry Lodge, located on Moose Creek in Kantishna, try their hand at gold panning, hiking, mountain biking, berry picking, fishing in Kantishna’s Wonder Lake.
Rates range from $5,769 to $7,249 pp dbl, and include all meals, accommodations, activities, baggage handling and transportation as per the itinerary. Untamed Alaska departures are available on June 7 and Aug. 16, 2017. As with all John Hall’s Alaska tours, Untamed Alaska tours are limited to 28-42 passengers per departure.
