Globus Spectacular Alaska!(AJ)

10 days from Anchorage to Anchorage 
When you think of a spectacular Alaska vacation, what comes to mind? Witnessing glaciers calve into the sea? Riding the world-famous Alaska Railroad? Seeking out wildlife in Denali National Park? Or maybe it’s cruising through the sea to watch for seals, sea otters, birds, and even whales. Whatever it is, this Alaska tour is sure to delight!

Board the Alaska Railroad in Deluxe Dome Service to Denali National Park, where you’ll hear an exclusive presentation by a local Naturalist—a special experience offered by Globus! Seek out grizzly bear, caribou, moose, and more on a wilderness expedition in Denali National Park. Take a cruise on Prince William Sound and along Columbia Glacier, the second-largest tide-water glacier in North America. You’ll also take a cruise of Kenai Fjords National Park to see glaciers calving into the sea and to hear the thunderous roar. Photos and videos cannot adequately capture the experience—you must witness it in person. On both cruises, be sure to watch for wildlife.

See the Trans-Alaska Pipeline Terminal near Valdez, take a sternwheeler cruise in Fairbanks, visit the home of four-time Iditarod champion Martin Buser (another out-of-the-ordinary experience offered by Globus), and enjoy all the scenery and majesty that only a vacation to Alaska can offer. Grab your camera and get ready for an Alaska tour that will leave you breathless and inspired—a travel experience of a lifetime.

Globus Notes

NOTES:
  • While wildlife in Alaska is frequently seen, early season (May & early June) and late-season (September) departures offer even greater opportunities for viewing a variety of wildlife. Departures after mid-August will enjoy blazing fall colors.
  • Your Train: The Alaska Railroad travels through Alaska’s spectacular scenery. Globus has obtained a complimentary upgrade for our guests in Deluxe Dome Service, which features confirmed seats in the upper-level dome car; priority seating in the dining room; and a private outdoor viewing deck.
  • Experience the Northern Lights: Enjoy the chance to witness the spectacular aurora borealis (Northern Lights) when the aurora dances across the horizon and lights up the sky. An amazing opportunity! The best chances of viewing the Northern Lights is on late August and September departures (if Mother Nature permits).
