As you travel back toward the park entrance, watch out for wildlife and have your binoculars and camera ready!

Keep your eyes peeled for smaller wildlife such as arctic ground squirrels, foxes, marmots and of course, bald eagles.

Visit the tour desk to purchase any of these activities. Overnight at a Denali-area hotel.(B)

Spend the morning exploring some of the many shops outside the park before boarding a luxury railcar for travel back to Anchorage via the Alaska Railroad. Sit in the spacious upper-level seating area and be sure to visit the open-air viewing platform for some fresh air and more opportunities to catch sight of Mount McKinley. Inside the train, order a craft cocktail from the bartender, pick up a souvenir at the gift shop and sit back for a smooth ride. Upon arriving at the Anchorage railroad depot, transfer to your hotel and enjoy your last night in Anchorage.
Day 6: Anchorage
We’ll provide transportation to the airport, where you can fit in a few last memories of Alaska before boarding your plane.
