Alaska anchorage marriott downtownVacation Day 1: Arrive Anchorage
Your singles trip begins as you land in Anchorage Alaska, the 49th state and largest in size. Hop on our provided shuttle and meet your travel group at the hotel.
This evening we meet for an optional dinner at 7:00pm and a night stroll around Anchorage.

Vacation Day 2: Anchorage Tour and Alaska Cultural Center
Today our group will discover Anchorage, it's history and people. The city started as a railroad-construction camp, boomed when oil was discovered in 1957 and seven years later, the Good Friday earthquake altered the landscape forever. Our morning guided tour takes us to the Port of Anchorage, Ship Creek, Bootleggers Cove, Earthquake Park and the busiest seaplane base in the world, Lake Hood! Then we travel the scenic drive up to Flat Top Mountain, home to many Alaskan animals for breathtaking views of the city.

Alaska dog sledNext we visit the Alaska Native Heritage Center to meet native Alaskan carvers, see live demonstrations, enjoy singing, dancing, storytelling and explore recreated winter dwellings. Walk the beautiful grounds and see our the natives lived. At the Heritage Center experience dog mushing (optional): the rush and power of 18 Alaskan Huskies, pound-for-pound the strongest animals in the world, pulling you in an off road vehicle on a wooded trail. Meet mushers and veteran racers in the Iditarod and Yukon Quest and hear firsthand the fascinating stories, the history and evolution of dog mushing and the intriguing experiences of these mushers
Tonight enjoy our Welcome Dinner at a local Anchorage restaurant.


Vacation Day 3: 26 Glacier Cruise
Alaska 26 glacier cruiseToday we depart Anchorage and travel along the Seward Highway, one of North America's Scenic Byways. Towering mountains reveal the effects of winter avalanches, spring waterfalls, and at times, Dall sheep can be spotted on the rocky outcroppings.
Next we Cruise over 140 miles into Prince William Sound for amazing views of 26 “named” glaciers and numerous unnamed ones. Get face to face with towering masses of ice, “hear” glaciers move and gaze at their brilliant blue colors. But it's not all about the ice - watch for sea otters, whales and birds as we travel through glacier-filled College and Harrimann Fjords. Keep a look out for bear, mountain goats and bald eagles. At the end of our trip we stop at a bird rookery, home to thousands of Kittiwakes.

 

Vacation Day 4: Anchorage to Seward by Train - Exit Glacier

Alaska Alaska TrainOur day starts with the experience of riding the rails, the historic Alaska Railroad. We travel between Anchorage and Seward on the Coastal Classic in the domed car. The route parallels the Seward Highway along the Turnagain Arm, then travels up into the mountains, away from the road past glaciers and alpine meadows. We travel through tunnels and by railroad houses, home to rail workers before reaching Seward.

Alaska AnchorageAfter our group checks-in to our hotel let's get up close to a glacier and experience the dense blue ice while listening to it crackle. A quick shuttle ride to Exit Glacier and we will walk the lower trail (a gentle half mile) for a photo opportunity right in front of the glacier face. The upper trail provides an overlook, as if you're standing right on the glacier.

 

Vacation Day 5: Kenai Fjords Day Cruise

Alaska Sea LionOur thrilling full-day cruise in Kenai Fjords National Park, where wildlife is abundant and tidewater glaciers are massive will be an unforgettable experience. Witness calving from a close distance, a process by which glaciers shed giant blocks and slabs of ancient ice. It is also our best opportunity for whale watching in Alaska.
These pristine waters are home to whales, otters, sea lions and seabirds. Our cruise is hosted by a Kenai Fjords National Park Ranger who will give us a detailed narrative on the history, ecology, and geology of the area and the wildlife.

 

Vacation Day 6: Seward to Anchorage - Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center

Time for browsing the shops in Seward or for a kayak excursion before our train. Grab a bite to eat before boarding then relax on our late afternoon train back to Anchorage.

 

Vacation Day 7: Anchorage

Alaska anchorage museumThis morning we visit the Anchorage Museum, the state's largest and a world-class art, history and science museum. Its collections offer an overview of Alaska’s rich history and an introduction to its varied cultures. The Alaska History Gallery delves into the Russian era, the gold rush, the Exxon Valdez oil spill and more. The Smithsonian Arctic Studies Center gives us a glimpse of the diverse culture of the Alaska Native peoples, while the Imaginarium Discovery Center will ignite the child in all of us.
The Anchorage Market & Festival is a fun place to shop, eat or just sit back and enjoy. The music and dancing performances keep the market lively. With so many Alaskans selling their products, the first thing you’ll notice is there are so many things to buy.

Then we gather for our Singles Group Farewell Dinner at one of Anchorage's local restaurants.
