Seward: Kenai Fjords National Park 6-Hour Cruise
- Duration: 6 hours
Five stars all the way! This experience was one of the highlights of our trip to Alaska. The nighttime dog mushing was an amazing way to see the dogs do what they love - running. The owner of the property and kennel was our musher. He called our Aurora experience a nighttime rainbow, which is the best way I know to describe the green light display we saw that night. There was another musher named Jody, who took the other couple on our tour out. Jody is a native Alaskan and had interesting stories to tell. The driver from our hotel and back, Joe, was from Alaska and told stories of his life growing up and living in AK. The food was good and the right amount for midnight meal. I HIGHLY recommend this for anyone considering a trip to Fairbanks. You don’t chase the northern lights on this tour, which we also did and also enjoyed. You do have a welcoming visit with Alaskans who want to welcome you to their home and their life.
I highly recommend. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable with much experience driving the Dalton highway, which was reassuring since it is so dangerous to drive. We took various stops along the way to the Arctic Circle and then stopped again afterwards for the northern lights. The visibility reading was low, but we still saw the lights since it was a clear night and they were beautiful and like nothing I’ve ever seen before. I also highly recommend looking out the window during the car ride back after stopping to see the lights because I saw more lights in the car after we stopped and the they were more impressive too. Plus, you have to added benefit of not freezing outside.
This was an adventure of a lifetime! Our family of 4 (two teens ages 15 and 16) was lucky enough to have a private flight all around Denali, along the glacier rivers and even flying right up next to the shear cliffs! Even though we were 1/4 mile away from them, they seemed so close you could touch them! Then, our glacier landing was like being on another planet! So incredible, we'd do it again in a heartbeat!
Our guide was fantastic! She was patient with us learning to drive and then gave us a great time with lots of splashing around. I cannot remember ever smiling for 3.5 hours straight before. She really made our Denali trip memorable. The rest of the staff was equally delightful and truly cared about our experience being positive.
This tour was just fantastic. Our guide Bob was phenomenal. I really enjoyed this tour and would recommend it. I had a very good time. And I would book it again. Thank you GetYourGuide for your excellent customer service.
