Wonders of Alaska SELF DRIVE Land Tour

Wonders of Alaska

This Self Drive Tour can be started on any day before or after your cruise. So why not consider 1 or 2 pre or post nights in Anchorage?

Day 1: Anchorage

Welcome to Anchorage, the place where young spirits and adventurous souls come to play. Upon arrival, pick-up your rental car and transfer independently to your hotel. Anchorage, Alaska's largest city, sits in a bowl below the Chugach Mountains. Between mountains and an inlet, surrounded by national parks and filled with wildlife, Anchorage combines the best of Alaska in a city that offers the comforts of home and the hospitality of the Last Frontier.

Day 2: Anchorage - Seward

Today's drive from Anchorage to the seaside community of Seward begins with spectacular views. Travel along Seward Highway, a National Scenic Byway offering incredible views around every turn as it passes between the dramatic shorelines of Turnagain Arm and the jutting peaks of the Chugach Mountains. Be sure to stop at Beluga Point Lookout where you can see the most unique and geologically dramatic bore tide in the world and watch for beluga whales rolling in the surf. Continue through the Kenai Peninsula to the small coastal town of Seward, one of Alaska's oldest communities. As the "Gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park," Seward offers incredible opportunities for outdoor exploration, recreation and plain-old relaxation.

Day 3: Seward

Spend the day exploring Seward's harbour and waterfront, quaint shops and galleries, or Exit Glacier, one of the most popular road-accessible glaciers in the state. For those interested in beautiful fjords, shimmering water, towering ancient glaciers and an impressive array of wildlife, we recommend taking a day cruise to Kenai Fjords National Park and Fox Island.(Optional)

Day 4: Seward - Talkeetna

This morning, head back north towards Anchorage and the small town of Talkeetna, a charming pioneer town offering great views of Mt.Denali. En route to Talkeetna take the detour through the Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel, one of the longest vehicle tunnels in North America. In addition to mountain views, Talkeetna is home to the convergence of three major glacial rivers, which make for great excursions. This evening recommendations include; taking a zipline tour or exhilarating jet boat river tour.

Day 5: Talkeetna - Denali

Consider taking a flightseeing tour among and above the Alaska Range. From the air, nature presents itself on a scale beyond your wildest imagination. We also recommend adding a glacier landing to get a sense of how immense these peaks really are. Afterwards, depart Talkeetna for the beautiful drive to Denali National Park and Preserve, the third largest park in the U.S. and the crown jewel of the Alaska Range. More than a mountain, Denali is six million acres of wild land bisected by one ribbon of road. Travellers along this road will see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest that gives way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North America's tallest peak, Mt Denali.

Day 6: Denali

Today, travel into the heart of Denali, a place where life continues as it has for thousands of years, without interference by man. The only road in the park, 92 mile long Denali Park Road, parallels the Alaska Range and travels through low valleys and high mountain passes. Along its route, beautiful landscapes appear at every turn, wildlife of all sorts can often be spotted and "The Mountain" can be seen as early as Mile 9 if the normally cloudy skies permit. During the summer, private vehicles can only drive the first fifteen miles of the road. Beyond Mile 15, the road turns to gravel and traffic is primarily restricted to buses. We therefore encourage you to take either the hop-on, hop-off park shuttle bus or a tour bus as this is the way to experience the park to a greater degree.(Price varies by distance and is payable locally - http://www.alaska.org/detail/denali-park-shuttle-bus#prices)

Day 7: Denali - Anchorage

Should you want to explore Denali beyond the Park Road before returning to Anchorage, we recommend treating yourself to an unforgettable experience - river rafting on the glacially-fed Nenana River. Enjoy stunningly beautiful scenery, the potential for wildlife sightings, and your choice of exciting whitewater rafting or a tranquil wilderness float trip. Whichever you choose, you'll literally go with the flow as you move through the wilderness and see a part of Alaska you can't explore any other way. Upon returning to Anchorage we recommend stepping out into downtown's thriving dining scene for some world-class, fresh fish - as in Alaska, fresh fish is the name of the game.

Our cruise from China to Korea and Japan was very enjoyable and interesting. The ship Celebrity Millenium was an enjoyable part of our holiday but the ship is rather tired and in need of a major update. I believe the MIllenium is due major refit next year 2019. The Oceanview restaurant was often very crowded making it very difficult to find a seat particularly at breakfast.This was not helped by selfish passengers hogging seats. The furniture in the Oceanview is very worn and some of it almost tatty. At the start of the cruise the service all over the ship was poor and we had occasion to complain.We discovered that a number of passengers had raised complaints too. The service did improve after the third or fourth day. With the advent of drinks packages for almost all passengers its difficult to get good drinks service.I regularly had to go to the bar and order drinks as finding a waiter was close to impossible. Slow service equals bigger profits? We have booked another cruise with Celebrity but its a last chance for them.If service is not good we will return to Cunard where the service has always been excellent.

The cruise was mainly Japan based, finishing off in South Korea and finally in Singapore. With no tendering and very calm seas, the ship kept very accurately to the itinerary. The Captain was very obvious - he was present at most shows in the theatre. I could find no fault with any of the staff that I had dealings with - their friendliness and professionalism were a credit to the Company. The two minor irritants were 1) the Japanese Immigration procedure on leaving Japan and2) the reducing standards of the dress code on 'chic/ elegant' night's. A very good itinerary with reasonable times in ports. The ship will be undergoing a refit in the near future.
