Treat yourself this Labor Day

Let Gray Line Alaska take the wheel this Labor Day Weekend! Treat yourself to world-class Alaska views, outdoor activities and memories that will last a lifetime. There are many ways to enjoy this long weekend in the Last Frontier, no matter what type of activities strike your fancy. With three short days, spend your time wisely and treat yourself to one of the hassle-free experiences offered by Gray Line Alaska.

Anchorage: Get up-close views of Portage Glacier by booking the Portage Glacier Cruise and Tour. You can celebrate both Labor Day and the cruise’s 30th anniversary! With round-trip transportation from Anchorage, guests can relax on their day off and enjoy a trip across Portage Lake with breathtaking views of the glacier.

First, you’ll make a stop at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center to tour the sanctuary and learn more about Alaska’s wildlife before heading to Portage to board the day boat.

Visitors can also spend the holiday attending the Anchorage Market and Festival. Over 300 vendors line the streets of downtown, offering tasty, local dishes, as well as live music and entertainment.

Kenai: Cast your line in one of the most productive trophy fishing waters in the state with the Kenai Upper River Fishing Tour. Glorious fall views and monster rainbow trout make this tour an ideal way to spend time in Alaska. (Bragging rights included and encouraged).

Fairbanks: Take a load off and soak your troubles away with a dip into the popular Chena Hot Springs. This tour brings passengers on a journey to the 100-year-old resort where they can expect epic wildlife sightings along the way. Upon arrival, guests will be able to enjoy dinner and visit the largest, year-round ice environment in the world, the Aurora Ice Museum. Guests 21 and older can also warm up with an adult beverage before going for a swim in the hot springs.

Denali: Climb aboard our own railcars and be whisked past picturesque views of Alaska’s wilderness en route to the iconic Denali National Park and Preserve. Guests will be treated to premium service in comfortable, glass-domed railcars as they search the forest for wildlife and catch sight of Denali.

Talkeetna: Thrill seekers looking to spend their holiday zipping past alpine trees and experiencing once-in-a-lifetime Alaska views can embark on the Talkeetna Zipline Tour. The tour includes nine ziplines, three suspension bridges and incredible views overlooking the Alaska Range, Ruth Glacier and the Chulitna River Valley.
