Discover the beauty and majesty of “the last frontier” on an Alaska family vacation. Home to Denali, the highest point in North America, as well as volcanic islands, over 3 million lakes, and 16,000 square miles (41,439 square km) of glacier ice — you'll explore some of the most stunning landscapes and terrains in the world — by train, boat, and bike.
Alaska Family Vacation Highlights
Brave the rapids on a rafting trip down Denali's glacial Nenana River. As Mt. McKinley looms in the background, don't be surprised if you cruise past a flurry of furry onlookers relaxing on shore—including caribou, wild sheep and bears.
Bike along the Coastal Trail to spot moose and local wildlife. Visit the Alaska Native Heritage Center to learn about Native Alaskan customs, culture and traditions.
Take an exhilarating jet boat ride along the glacier-fed Susitna River into the Alaskan wilderness. Afterward, enjoy dinner in Denali National Park.
Cool your tracks at Happy Trails Kennels and go behind the scenes to learn the history of the Iditarod, the world's most famous sled race. Meet the racing dogs and the season's litter of eager puppies!
Hop aboard the Alaska Railroad for a scenic ride along the Kenai Peninsula. Cruise through gorgeous Resurrection Bay and get an up-close view of otters, seals, porpoises and other sea life.
