PRE - DISCOVER DENALI ENDING IN SEATTLE

$2,299.00/person

Note: This program begins in Anchorage. Please ensure that your arrival flight takes you into the Ted Stevens International Airport (ANC). The program includes an economy class flight from Anchorage to Seattle.

Note: Regardless of the luggage allowances on any flights you take prior to your arrival, all checked luggage is subject to a fee on the domestic flight between Anchorage and Seattle in this program. Further details are listed below in the “Alaska Airlines Baggage Policy”. We encourage you to be aware of the policies before departing on this program.

See big, bold and genuine Alaska by following its scenic highways and famed Alaska Railway into rustic towns and through majestic Denali National Park.

Itinerary may operate in reverse due to availability of attractions.

Day 1

After flying into the Anchorage airport, you will be met and transferred to the Marriott Hotel Anchorage or similar for the evening. Spend the remainder of the day at your leisure.

Day 2

After breakfast at the hotel, you will drive north from Anchorage on the George Parks Highway, which winds through the kind of scenery that defines the Alaskan interior: tundra, soaring mountain peaks, glaciers, forests, wild rivers, and vast expanses primarily inhabited by animals such as moose, grizzlies, foxes and birds.

Upon reaching Talkeetna, board your luxury dome railcar. As you travel the 4.5 hours to Denali, even more spectacular scenery unfolds as you watch from the comfort of the upper level dome. This afternoon, enjoy lunch on board your railcar in the downstairs dining room. Once you reach Denali, you will be transferred to the Denali Park Village.

The Denali Park Village Lodge, located seven miles south of Denali National Park & Preserve entrance, is nestled along the banks of the Nenana River. Spread over 20 acres, The Lodge offers light hiking and interpretive trails throughout the facility. The Lodge offers outstanding views, fine dining, and superior guest hotel rooms. Relax by the indoor fireplace, enjoy dinner on the outdoor deck, or take a walk by the glacial-fed river - just outside your door.

Following an enlightening private lecture on Denali and dinner on your own, you will overnight at the lodge.

Day 3

The day starts with an early breakfast at the lodge. Then, you’re off on the 5-7 hour Denali Natural History Tour led by a driver/naturalist. The tour is conducted in school busses and you will drive all the way to Mile 19 of the Park Road (private cars cannot go past Mile 14). You begin at the Wilderness Access Center, where you’ll see the award-winning film “Across Time and Tundra,” which tells of the creation of Mt. McKinley National Park in 1924. Next, you’ll climb Government Hill—look off to your left and you'll see an expansive view that includes part of the Yanert Valley.

After Mile 3, you begin to enter the wilderness. This is taiga forest—and although no wildlife viewings are ever guaranteed— this is prime moose habitat, and moose may be seen anywhere on this stretch of road. Watch for a flash of sun glinting off antlers, or moose nibbling fresh willow leaves along the road.

You might also see foxes on this section of road and watch for caribou above treeline. The Great one—Mt. Denali—often comes into view at about Mile 9, if weather is cooperating.

At Mile 12, you’ll visit Savage Cabin, the original cook’s cabin in the Park’s first tourist camp, and still a ranger patrol cabin used by the Park Service. At Mile 17, you’ll see a presentation by an Athabascan Alaskan Native interpreter, sharing the story of Alaskan Natives in Denali, and how they survived thousands of years in this harsh wilderness.

Once back at park entrance you will have some time on your own for lunch at the Denali Park Visitors Center before boarding your motor coach for the drive back to Anchorage. Arriving in Anchorage you will check in to your hotel where the remainder of the evening is at your leisure with dinner on your own.

Day 4

After breakfast at the hotel, you will transfer to the airport for your flight to Seattle. Once in Seattle you will transfer to the awaiting ship. Please meet our local ground staff near the baggage claim. They will display Oceania Cruises signs on their clipboards.

However, each program varies and participants should be prepared to negotiate a mixture of surfaces which may include: inclines, cobblestones, sand, and gravel or natural paths. There may also be a need to climb steps or stairs on occasion. Guests who utilize a wheelchair and those with mobility concerns are advised to check with the cruise line in advance to see if any portion of the tour program may not be considered suitable for their individual situation. Weather appropriate clothing; hats; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are generally recommended.

All land programs are capacity controlled and subject to availability. Programs falling under the minimum number of required participants are subject to cancellation. Pricing listed is also subject to change to meet unexpected cost increases for transportation, land arrangements or currency fluctuations. Once purchased, pricing is guaranteed and not subject to change. Land Programs must be purchased no later than 60 days prior to your sail date. Cancellations made within 60 days or less prior to the sail date are subject to 100% cancellation penalty.

HOTELS AND LODGES

The best available hotels and lodges in Alaska are used throughout the land program. They are comfortable and rustic. Guests accustomed to the level of services at an international five-star hotel will find that the same services are not available in Alaska. Due to peak season in Alaska from May through September, it may be difficult to change rooms during the hotel stay as all hotels have very high occupancy. Hotels are subject to change.

ADDITIONAL TOURING

Time permitting, while you are in the Denali area at the beginning of the tour program, your guide will present additional touring programs for sale. These tour options vary from week to week and therefore can’t be pre-purchased. However, your guide will do everything possible to help you secure space.

BAGGAGE

As your baggage will travel on many different modes of transportation, please choose sturdy cases that have been properly tagged with personal identifications, both inside and out. It is important to keep all valuables and documents on your person. As amenities such as elevators and baggage handling are limited at some locations, we suggest you only carry one bag per person while on the land tour. Your tour director will arrange to store your luggage until your flight to Seattle.

Guests can make arrangements for their luggage to be transported from their home to the ship, and back home from any port at the end of their cruise by contacting Luggage Free at 800-361-6871or www.luggagefree.com.

CLOTHING AND CLIMATE

With a broad variety of weather possibilities, we encourage you to bring clothes that are suited to layering. Daytime attire in Alaska is strictly casual. Comfortable, supportive walking shoes are a must. The following items should be included: water-repellant coat or jacket, collapsible umbrella, rain hat, lightweight windbreaker, and sweaters. It could be warmer inland with summer temperatures in Denali reaching 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

ALTITUDE

Travel in Alaska is generally at lower elevations. The maximum altitude is 2,800 feet in Denali National Park.

WEATHER CONDITIONS

Weather conditions are unpredictable. While the cruise line and its appointed ground operators will do everything possible to assist with alternative arrangements, we cannot be held responsible for any costs incurred if a land program, tour or private arrangement made through the cruise line is disrupted due to adverse weather.
