Denali Backcountry & Northern Lights Adventure

Discover Alaska in color! Feel at home in the wilderness at the remote Denali Backcountry Lodge deep within the heart of Denali National Park and experience the vibrant fall colors of the tundra and varied landscapes.

Explore the backcountry with a variety of guided hikes and mountain biking trails, relax with a massage, or try your luck at panning for gold in Moose Creek. Regular shuttles to Wonder Lake offer the opportunity to view and photograph Denali.

Your Northern Lights Adventure continues with a scenic train ride to Fairbanks, Alaska’s second-largest city, and an important location in Alaska’s Gold Rush and pipeline history. 

From here, you’ll embark on a fly-drive tour taking you north of the Arctic Circle to Coldfoot Camp for a birds-eye view of Gates of the Arctic National Park, and to watch for the majestic Northern Lights as the skies darken.

Cross the Arctic Circle in ceremonious fashion on the return trip to Fairbanks. On the last day of your tour, you'll learn more about living in Fairbanks during Alaska's Gold Rush aboard an authentic steamboat with the Riverboat Discovery Tour.

This package is a available August 21 – September 12.
