Default 4 night pre-cruise land tour

This tour begins in Anchorage, heads to Denali on the McKinley Explorer "luxury" rail, spends the night in Denali, next day on the Natural History tour, then luxury rail to Fairbanks, overnight. Gold mining and riverboat cruise in Fairbanks, overnight, then return to Anchorage to begin the cruise! PHEW!

We did the three day pkg in Sept. of 04. It was a great trip but if we were to do it over again we would have made a week out of it. The train ride was great as were the three nights lodging included in the pkg. There is so much more to see that you can't do it in just three or four days. I know you will enjoy it however you end up doing it.

Default 4 day southbound land tour

Thanks so much for your response. I have read that the train ride is long and am a little disappointed that our land tour only includes one day in Denali. All the more reason for a second trip another time, I guess! I just wanted to make sure this trip is something our entire family (two teens included) will enjoy! Thanks again.
