Alaska is renowned for its spectacular scenery of wilderness, mountains, fjords spectacular coastline and amazing wildlife. Our team recently hosted a tour for 200 people here, and for most of the group it was their first visit.
We took every opportunity to showcase this incredible place. Read on to learn all about our trip highlights.
Amazing Alaska Highlights
One of our tour highlights was glacier dog sledding, also known as “mushing”. Travelling in style, we jumped onto a helicopter that took us up to the glaciers where the dogs are kept fit for the winter. Click here for a short video of this amazing experience.
Cruising the Prince William Sound
We took the group to Prince William Sound to see the tide water glaciers. An incredible sight to see, we learned about how the glaciers flow into fjords where the ice breaks off into the sea (which is how icebergs are formed). The group also saw a variety of wildlife native to the region, including pods of dall porpoises, breaching whales, sea otters and even some bald eagles.
Gold Rush Themed Dinner
Much like Australia, Alaska also experienced a gold rush in the 19th century and our exclusive theme dinner was held at Crow Creek Mine, a former gold mining village now beautifully restored in a spectacular mountain setting. Our attendees enjoyed gold panning, a birds of prey interaction and a spectacular salmon bake dinner. The night was topped off with plenty of square dancing with an expert dance “caller” backed by a toe tapping, knee slapping Bluegrass band!
