McKinley Explorer, Deluxe/Reverse Tour - 3 Days
Between Anchorage and Fairbanks stands majestic Mt. McKinley. Still called Denali — the Great One — by Alaska natives and locals, Mt. McKinley is not only the tallest mountain in North America, it's the most spectacular. And it's the center point of a six-million-acre wilderness that boasts some of the most unspoiled, untamed country in the world. This 6 day/5 night itinerary includes a memorable train journey, the three-hour Natural History Tour into Denali National Park and your choice of optional adventures.
