Dutch Harbor to Whittier, Alaska

DAY 2 Kenai Fjords National Park
Welcome to the mesmerizing glacial wonderland of Kenai Fjords National Park. Established in 1980, this park safeguards Alaska’s glacial wilderness. Covering over 600,000 acres, it boasts stunning scenery, abundant wildlife, and magnificent tidewater glaciers. The park’s 936-square-mile Harding Icefield feeds these glaciers, creating awe-inspiring fjords where land and sea intertwine.
DAY 3 Kodiak Island & Foul Bay
Embark on a wild and untamed journey to Kodiak Island and the breathtaking beauty of rugged landscapes and pristine waters. Paddle through calm bays on kayaking excursions, keeping an eye out for playful sea otters and majestic eagles soaring above. Each day presents new activities for water ops and wildlife watching for nature’s pure magic. View spectacular volcanic islands of the Aleutian chain to the Inside Passage an essential habitat for marine mammals and some 40 million seabirds, representing more than 30 species.
DAY 4 Katmai National Park, Kukak Bay
A landscape is alive underneath our feet, filled with creatures that remind us what it is to be wild. Katmai was established in 1918 to protect the volcanically devastated region surrounding Novarupta and the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes. Today, Katmai National Park and Preserve also protects 9,000 years of human history and important habitat for salmon and thousands of brown bears.
DAY 5 Ugashik National Wildlife Preserve
Alaska Peninsula Refuge presents a breathtakingly dramatic landscape made up of active volcanoes, towering mountain peaks, rolling tundra and rugged, wave-battered coastlines. When the salmon are running, Ugashik Lakes and streams attract brown bears in great numbers.
DAY 6 Aniakchak National Monument & Preserve, Kujulik Bay
No lines, no waiting! Given its remote location and challenging weather conditions, Aniakchak is one of the wildest and least-visited places in the National Park System. This landscape is a vibrant reminder of Alaska’s location in the volcanically active “Ring of Fire,” as it is home to a massive six-mile wide, 2,500-foot-deep volcanic crater formed during a massive eruption 3,500 years ago.
DAY 7 Shumagin Islands, Unga Island
Exposures of petrified logs and stumps along the shores of Unga Island are remnants of a sequoia or metasequoia forest buried because of volcanic activity millions of years ago. The petrified forest tells the story of the passage of species between Asia and America and helps portray the climate and environment of the Aleutian Arc before humans inhabited Alaska.
Day 9 Akutan Island, Akutan Village
Today’s adventure will be a fiery one. Welcome to Akutan Island–home of the active Mount Akutan volcano. The volcano erupted most recently in 1992. The recent volcanic activity makes Akutan Island an amazing destination for ecotourism. Hiking on the island offers a diverse landscape where wildflowers and berries abound on hills and mountains.
DAY 10 Unalaska, Dutch Harbor with Overnight
Today, you’ll explore the town of Unalaska (a name after our own heart). We’ll dock in Dutch Harbor, our final stop of your trip. But the adventure doesn’t end here. Take in the sights of the Church of the Holy Ascension-a national landmark and the oldest church building in Alaska. Hike and explore the Dutch Harbor, best known for being the home harbor of Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch.
