Here's what people had to say about this program:
“Everyone needs to take this program of Denali and the Kenai Peninsula! Alaska is more beautiful than I ever thought and this trip was very educational.”
— Lori from Yelm, WA
“Our experience in Denali and Kenai Fjords was superlative on many levels. I came away wishing everyone could visit Alaska just once in order to see for themselves what wilderness means and why it must be preserved for all time.”
— Charlene from Bethesda, MD
Alaska’s National Parks: From Denali to Kenai
Unique learning programs for travelers age 50+
In the Alaskan interior, grizzly bears walk lowland rivers, caribou roam the alpine tundra, Dall sheep cling to treacherous mountainsides and the magnificent golden eagle surveys all. To the south, the glaciers that built the cathedral fjords of the Kenai Peninsula continue to carve the landscape as they have for eons. Join expert naturalists in the boreal forest, on the tundra and along the bay shores of two glorious Alaskan national parks.
