Day 1 Fly to Whitehorse On arrival collect your car and proceed to your hotel.

Day 6 Denali National Park: At leisure to explore some of the many day hike trails.

Day 7 Denali National Park/Anchorage: Continue south, watching as the dense evergreen forests and windswept mountains give way to the lush Matanuska River Valley. Before dusk, you will reach Alaskas’s largest city, Anchorage (236 miles).
