Every vacation includes a cruise and up-close and personal experience in your own motorhome. You have several choices, all including the scenic Inside Passage and Denali National Park.
DAYS 1-7. GLACIER DISCOVERY CRUISE, CRUISE THE INSIDE PASSAGE. Board your ship in Vancouver, B.C.

DAY 9. ANCHORAGE. Spend the day exploring Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city. With long summer days, 120 miles of paved bicycle trails and breathtaking scenery, cycling is a wonderful way to explore Anchorage or go for a drive along Turnagain Arm. If conditions permit, you may witness the tidal bore—a wall of water rushing up the inlet. Overnight at Anchorage Ship Creek RV Park.
DAY 10. ANCHORAGE-DENALI. Drive the Glenn and Parks Highways to Denali, with mountain ranges to right and left. Overnight near the entrance to Denali National Park. For the next two nights overnight near the entrance to Denali National Park.

DAY 12. DENALI-FAIRBANKS. On the road again, head for Fairbanks, where the sun hardly sets at all in summertime. In late summer you might see the aurora borealis. You may want to visit the University of Alaska-Fairbanks, with its excellent museum and demonstration gardens, or inspect a retired gold dredge and try gold panning.
DAY 13. FAIRBANKS-BEAVER CREEK. Head out on the Alaska Highway to Beaver Creek, near the Yukon-Alaska border. Enjoy the scenery. Watch for wildlife along the road, and the TransAlaska Pipeline, snaking its way over hills and valleys.
