Alaska's National Parks
Before You Go
For most activities, a relatively moderate level of exertion is required. However, a variety of activities will be offered. We will often leave the beaten path to walk over uneven terrain such as rocky trails and shores, and icy paths, including glaciers. Transportation options will vary with some motorcoach rides over bumpy roads, and boat and train journeys that require sitting for long periods of time. Our accommodations range from superb hotels to rustic lodges tucked into remote corners of the parks we are visiting. This permits us close-up viewing of wildlife. Not all accommodations have en suite facilities; Camp Denali offers comfortable outhouses—with incredible views!—shared shower facilities, and rustic cabins that are heated via wood stove, and “unplugged” when it comes to electricity. Seasonal temperatures can range from the low 40s to the low 70s°F, with evenings a bit cooler.
