Alaska

Sep 25, 2020 | Alaska, North America

Explore the wondrous nature and raw beauty of the northern wilderness as you explore four must-see destinations in 10 days on a fully-tailored journey traveling through luxury Alaska lodges by privately chartered planes, all facilitated by SmartFlyer in partnership with TCS World Travel.

With wide-open spaces and an abundance of wildlife, Alaska is the ideal destination for social distancing on your bucket list. Discover the wilds of Alaska on this privately chartered plane trip, perfect for outdoor enthusiasts seeking the best the region has to offer. Learn from experts as you beachcomb along the coastline of the “The Last Frontier,” take part in guided nature walks, get whisked away to remote areas by helicopter, taste the freshest Alaskan produce, go on glacial hikes and observe wildlife in its natural habitat. With hand-selected luxury Alaska lodges as your anchor for this trip – including luxurious properties like Winterlake Lodge and Tutka Bay Lodge – you’ll have days filled with adventures with the assurance of being lulled to sleep in with all of the creature comforts you know and love.

Enjoy exclusive experiences along the way, with days that present thrilling activities like rafting scenic rivers interspersed by stopping to pick wildflowers and berries before being whisked away by private helicopter to a mountaintop wine and cheese tasting with stunning panoramic views. Plus, the true beauty of this itinerary is that there are no set dates; though the best times of the year to travel are May to early September, we can work with you to determine the timeframe best aligned with your schedule and the activities you’d like to experience. Due to the diversity of the landscape and a wide range of activities available, you can work directly with your SmartFlyer travel advisor to customize your itinerary, but the below is meant to serve as inspiration as you get your creative juices flowing.
