7 Day Alaska: Aurora & Igloos
The dynamic winter landscapes of Alaska invite you to take an unforgettable journey through their scenic vistas and natural wonders. Immerse yourself in days of active adventure - hiking the Matanuska Glacier, snowmobiling to the White Mountains, and riding in a dog sled. As the curtain of night falls, watch the wondrous Northern Lights dazzle above you.
The adventure begins in Anchorage, where you'll be greeted by your private driver-guide before transferring to your accommodation. Explore Alaska's legendary Turnagain Arm waterway, home to diverse wildlife and stunning scenic vistas. Visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving Alaska's wildlife. Here you can experience an up-close encounter with some of the state's most iconic inhabitants, providing great photo opportunities. Immerse yourself in the majesty of a true geological wonder as you hike the Matanuska Glacier. Join your private guide and traverse one of the state's most accessible glaciers, feeling the crisp snow crunch under your cleats. The next day, glide along the waters of Blackstone Bay and Prince William Sound in a shared glacier and wildlife cruise. Marvel at the stunning tidewater glaciers, towering mountains, and the temperate rainforest that surrounds you.
Fairbanks offers a change of scenery and the Borealis Basecamp sets the stage for an unforgettable stay. This truly unique property invites you to unwind in an exclusive fiberglass igloo, each boasting curved windows for comfortable Northern Lights viewing. When daylight replaces the dazzling turquoise hues, enjoy a private tour through spectacular Alaskan backcountry aboard a snowmobile. Ride alongside the Trans Alaska Pipeline until you reach the opening to the White Mountains recreation area. Spend time at leisure on a self-guided snowshoeing excursion before meeting a team of enthusiastic four-legged athletes in an exclusive dog sled adventure.
