Hop the rails in a deluxe dome railcar to Talkeetna, while your guide narrates sights and points of interest along the way. Take a break for lunch and exploring at this “Denali adventure hub,” followed by a guided, level hike on the Talkeetna Lakes trail. Later, check into the lodge.

Day 3

Talkeetna

Expert backcountry hiking and kayak guides take you on a day of adventure. Low elevation trails uncover the plants, birds, and animals of these mountains, along crystal clear lakes. Or, for a more rigorous exploration, tighten your hiking boots and climb 1,500 feet (above tree line), with staggering views of Mt. Denali and the Alaska Range when the clouds part. After an included lunch, gear up and get out on Byers Lake with a kayak and local residents (trumpeter swans, loons, beavers). Keep your eyes peeled. Grab dinner in the charming recreation hub of Talkeetna or at the hotel on your own.

Day 4

Denali National Park
