    Day 2

    This morning explore the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, a 200-acre rescue and rehabilitation center for Alaskan wildlife. Here we will meet the moose, wood bison, musk ox herd, caribou herd, and other Alaskan animals that call the Portage Glacier Valley home. The afternoon finds us on a voyage in Prince William Sound’s Blackstone Bay. Cruise close to the shore, admiring the sheer cliff walls and tumbling waterfalls in route to two tidewater glaciers – Beloit and Blackstone. You will be sitting face-to-face with an expansive wall of ice at Blackstone glacier. The rest of the day will be spent exploring and searching for sea and wildlife. The evening is at your leisure.

  • Day 3

    Visit the homestead of Dallas Seavey, the 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2016 Iditarod Champion to learn what it takes to train and race in the Last Great Race. Tour the kennel and go for a wilderness ride on a real dog sled with champion sled dogs! Lunch is served at the kennel before we travel to the town of Talkeetna, a quaint “mountain climbing” town, featured on several TV shows for good food and fun personalities. Enjoy a hosted dinner and the Star Lady Aurora presentation this evening. The Star Lady will share with you her knowledge of constellations, aurora activity, and the Alaskan night sky. Ask questions of this local personality and stock up on knowledge before we head outside on to the lodge deck to look for the Northern Lights! Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge – 2 nights (FB,L,D)

    Day 5

    It’s an epic journey on the Alaskan Railroad today, through a true winter wonderland! Depart the train in Healey and continue by bus to Fairbanks. After checking into our hotel enjoy a hosted dinner followed by more aurora viewing this evening. The remote location will allow us to get away from the city lights of Fairbanks to enjoy the aurora and photograph this spectacular show! NOTE: The aurora is weather and solar flare dependent – it takes clear skies and active solar activity combined to make for a great viewing experience. Pikes Waterfront Lodge – 2 nights(FB,L,D)

  • Day 6

    This afternoon visit the Trans Alaska Pipeline and the Museum of the North. Get ready to be amazed at the BP World Ice Art Championships, where single and multi blocks of ice are sculpted into exquisite master pieces. The detail will astound you!

  • Day 7

    You will not soon forget the magic you experienced in the Great North. It is time to take our photos and memories back home to share with our families and loved ones. (FB)

A Coos Bay Christmas

First offered as a holiday excursion in 2013, it has been often requested by our Christmas crowd ever since, so we are pleased to bring A Coos Bay Christmas back for a return engagement.

This is an all-coach trip. Travel north to Ashland/Medford the first day. There’s a lunch break in Redding and tonight you’ll partake in the annual Christmas Feast at the Winchester Inn. The six-course meal comes with carolers and costumed staff.

The next morning (Christmas Eve), before departing for the coast, make an early morning visit to Harry & David’s. As is our Christmas shopping tradition, we have negotiated a little gift card to get you started on your expedition. Travel to the coast, stopping in Bandon at Washed Ashore, a most unique place that makes art out of ocean trash. At Cranberry Sweets, your sponsored-shopping activities continue. Finish the day at The Mill Casino/Hotel in Coos Bay. Dinner tonight is a Crab Fest (other options available), as the Dungeness season will have just started.

Christmas Day brings our legendary White Elephant Gift Exchange, an ecological tour of the area and a visit to Shore Acres State Park. Not only is there an interesting story, there is a wonderful display of Christmas lights. A holiday feast is planned.

The trip home takes you down the Oregon Coast, with shopping stops at Misty Meadows Jams and the House of Myrtlewood. Spend the night in Eureka and head home through the redwoods.
