Begin this unique Alaska adventure as we drive north from Anchorage along the Kink Arm, we will pass through farmland that was colonized during the New Deal, now famous for growing record breaking produce like the 2,051-pound pumpkin!

Walk the trails aside these fascinating Ice Age creatures as you learn about their adaptations and place in the future of Alaskan agriculture. You will also have time to browse the Musk Ox Farm's gift shop for locally crafted gifts such as qiviut (Musk Ox wool, one of the most sought after fibers in the world)!

As we ascend the Talkeetna Mountains, we'll enter the breathtaking alpine area known as Hatcher Pass! Take an interpretive walk through the abandoned Independence Mine State Historical Park Visitor Center, led by your local guide.

A delicious dinner is included, provided by a locally owned and operated eatery, known for their farm-to-table style menu!

On our drive back to Anchorage, enjoy complimentary snacks and water as well as the continued commentary by your local Alaskan Guide.
