Gray Line to Denali, Portage Glacier and Fairbanks!

In Alaska Travelgram, Cruises, Parks, Videos by scott

All around Alaska, Gray Line moves travelers around on its fleet of motorcoaches and private train cars. We’ve got some great specials this summer.

But Gray Line also has a couple of great destinations that I love:
a. Portage Glacier Cruises. This cruise is just 54 miles from Anchorage on the way to Whittier. The m/v Ptarmigan sails right up to within 300 yards of the glacier’s face–plenty close to feel the big chunks of ice as they fall off into Portage Lake. This is a great activity while you’re visiting Alyeska Resort! Priced from $29.

b. Gold Dredge #8. Located 10 miles from Fairbanks, this gold dredge is one of the original super-dredges that used to dot the landscape of interior Alaska. There’s a tour of the dredge itself–where you’ll learn about the history and see the process of converting gold “pay dirt” into bars for the assay office. Just $25. This is a fun activity while you’re visiting Fairbanks!

Great new deals from Gray Line of Alaska, including overnight accommodations and round-trip train transportation on the McKinley Explorer private rail car. REALLY–these are good deals.
From Anchorage: Ride the train roundtrip up and back to Denali and stay for one night. The price? Just $289 roundtrip, per person, double. Add one or two extra nights for just $99 per room, per night. That’s plenty of time to take the bus tour into the park and see the wildlife! Take a raft trip. Go for a flightseeing tour!

From Fairbanks, the same package is available for just $199 rt per person, double. In fact, if you want to stay in Fairbanks before or after your tour, the rate is just $59 per night at the Westmark Hotel. Wow!
