Let’s go on an 11 day-trip to see one of the most beautiful and fascinating places in the U.S., Alaska, the final frontier, and one of the most fascinating natural phenomena: The Midnight Sun.


We will be going exactly on Summer Solstice, which is the longest day of the year. In northern Alaska, above the Arctic Circle, that translates into 24 hours of the sun in the sky, even at midnight.


– Cross the Arctic Circle on June 21, Summer Solstice, to see the Midnight Sun: when the sun touches the horizon at midnight but never goes below it.

– Visit the breathtaking Denali National Park, one of the most beautiful and unique national parks in the U.S.

– Go on an exciting adventure through Devil’s Canyon with Mahay’s Jet Boat Adventure, where we will go on CLASS 5 rapids on a jet boat, travelling through the Alaskan backcountry.

– Go on a hike at Denali at midnight, with the sun in the sky.

– Go on an ATV adventure at midnight!

– Get to see some of the most amazing wildlife in the U.S., such as grizzlies, moose, caribou, and bald eagles in their natural habitat.

– Fly over Mt. Denali, the tallest mountain in North America.

– See the mighty Yukon River.

– Do the Kantishna Wilderness Trails Tour, a breathtaking drive through the Denali Highway, the road through Denali National Park.

– Spend a night in Talkeetna, an authentic, small Alaska town

– Travel the Alaska Railroad aboard the Denali Star from Talkeetna through Denali and Fairbanks, on a 271-mile journey through one of the most beautiful countries you can imagine: the nearly-untouched Alaskan wilderness.

– Stay at Chena Hot Springs, a beautiful Alaskan hot spring resort and experience some of the most amazing hot springs in existence.

– Go horseback riding through the Alaskan scenery.

– Go dryland dog sledding.
