BOSTON, Aug. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Grand Circle Travel, specializing in trips of international discovery for American travelers 50+, today launched a new North American tour: the first Grand Circle tour to Alaska. Travelers can save $500 per couple on 2020 departures of this new vacation when reserved by October 7, 2019. The trip will be available May-June and August-September 2020.

This unspoiled region of North America has been one of the most requested destinations by Grand Circle travelers. While Alaska boasts spectacular landscapes, it also offers a fascinating heritage and rich history.

New! Alaskan Discovery: Denali National Park & the Kenai Fjords --11 days from $5,995 per person (including airfare)

Trip highlights include:

  • Denali National Park: Travelers visit Alaska's signature national park, named for and dominated by the towering peak of Denali, the tallest mountain in North America. Local wildlife includes bears, moose, Dall sheep, and abundant birdlife, such as golden eagles.
  • Kenai Fjord National Park Cruise: Travelers spend a day cruising along the stunning coastline of Kenai Fjords National Park, which encompasses over 900 square miles of wilderness. Migratory whales, including humpback, gray, minke, and orca, make their home here among the ancient glaciers during the warmer months of the year, as well as sea lions, otters, and other marine creatures. Birdwatchers will delight as puffins zip along above the water's surface, and bald eagles soar through the blue skies above.
  • Dog mushing experience: In the wild expanse of Alaska, locals rely on teams of trusty sled dogs to help them navigate the fields of snow and ice that blanket rural Alaska throughout much of the year. Travelers visit a working kennel to see firsthand how these loyal creatures are trained and cared for, and learn about the role they play in Alaskan life, even in the age of more modern forms of transportation.
  • Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center: Travelers visit this sanctuary dedicated to preserving Alaska's wildlife through conservation, education, research and quality animal care.

Grand Circle Travel offers travelers comfortably-paced, discovery-rich itineraries. Travelers are led every step of the way by an expert, local Program Director who connects them to each region's culture, scenery, and wildlife like only an insider can.
