The "On the Road" Alaskan experience exceeded my expectations with small group size, active format, and vast diversity of locations visited enhancing each day we spent on the road. This is our 2nd RS journey and the educational aspect was ideal and we plan to take more in the future! GREAT JOB

Learn about the land, people, animals and climate of Alaska from top, Barrow, to bottom Seward. Learn why many people return to Alaska to live after only one visit.

This was a fascinating look at life in Alaska. This program gave us the opportunity to talk with Alaska Natives and see some of the most awesome scenery and wildlife imaginable. It gave us a chance to see Alaska in a way not possible if we had only taken a cruise.

WOW, this program is a great way to be refreshed and inspired by seeing God's Hand in His creation. See, learn, and experience the wonders of Alaska from top (Barrow) to bottom (Seward).

I very much enjoyed the Alaska trip. The trip was in August and we traveled to Fairbanks, Barrow, Denali National Park, Anchorage and Seward Alaska. We had train rides, boat rides and bus rides. The trip to Denali National Park was wonderful. I would like to do the Alaska trip again.

This is a very educational trip that presents the real Alaska. We learned about the ramifications of permafrost and the impact of climate change. We saw many animals in the wild, including moose, a polar bear, grizzly bears, caribou, Dall sheep, mountain goats, tundra swans, puffins, whales, etc., etc. We learned that native populations still live by hunting and gathering, and that sled dog teams are still important to transportation. We learned about the Iditarod sled dog race and saw 2 demonstrations of mushing. We were surprised to learn how few roads there are in Alaska and how many people own planes and fly to get around. We learned about the pipeline and the reliance of the Alaskan economy on oil. Take this trip if you have an inquisitive mind, an adventurous spirit, and don't expect constant luxury & to be catered to constantly!
