Before enjoying lunch on your own in Anchorage, you'll stop to visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, meeting some of Alaska's friendliest (and furriest!) locals.

Your fourth day at Winterlake Lodge is rife with options, and to be spent pursuing your individual interests. Accompany the owner for a walk along the famous Iditarod Trail, or hike up to the ridge behind the Lodge to view the expansive valley and Denali beyond. Spot wildflowers and loons during a canoe ride on the lake, or search for black bears and moose on Wolverine Ridge. Other options include kayaking, birding, yoga, and cooking classes. Wine tastings in the early evening explore wine and food pairings.

Thanks to the rich salmon population in nearby Big River Lakes, the bears flock to Redoubt for a hearty meal, so keep your eyes peeled for these majestic creatures. Enjoy a day and a night at Redoubt Bay Lodge, where the activity options abound. You may wish to take in the incredible scenery on a hike, a kayak of Big River Lakes or turn your eyes upward to spot the millions of birds that migrate and nest in the region. Accommodations are at Redoubt Bay Lodge in a Cabin.

Perfect Alaska Itinerary

By: Jeff52


Reviewed on: 02 Sep 2014

Entrée Alaska put together the perfect week long Alaska trip for my brother and me. Everything was taken care of and it was a stress free experience. Each activity was exactly what we wanted to do and perfectly planned out. I still can’t believe we got to see Denali national park, fish for silver salmon, hike on a tundra, race Iditarod dogs, and have a helicopter tour of Prince William Sound all in six days. When our kayaking tour had to be cancelled last minute by a supplier, because of dangerous glacier conditions, we were contacted immediately. Entrée Alaska booked the helicopter tour for us in replacement, and it ended up being our favorite activity of the trip. Look no further when trying to decide how to put together a great Alaska vacation.

Great Trip Coordination

Entree Alaska handled the middle part of a 3 week adventure we just returned from. They handled transferring us from our cruise ship to Winterlake Lodge, then on to Redoubt Bay Lodge, and finally back to Anchorage for our flight out of Alaska. Everything came together very smoothly, we very much appreciated how they made it all so easy!

Entree crafted an excellent trip around all our wishes. They chose excellent accommodation, fishing trips, train trips and other activities and the timing was all important too. I couldn't have managed it on my own without the specialist knowledge. We especially appreciated their app which enabled the whole family to look at what we were doing each day and when, which kept us organized for our busy trip.

We booked 6 excursions for a family of 9 at considerable expense. We were told we would have to supply our own car seat for one operator which was very inconvenient No one at Entree or Coastline we’re able to do anything to remediate this. Our excursions were wonderful except for Gastineau Guiding and I would not recommend . The guide was not interesting and they told us a car seat was not required in Alaska.

We had a great experience with Entree. They were very approachable as we designed the trip, answering all questions quickly and completely. They prepared very complete travel documents which ensured that we were prepared. And, they were in touch with the various service providers along the way to make sure our trip went smoothly and answered my questions quickly when they arose during the trip.

BAC driver did not speak much English and had no information on the places we passed on the way to Anchorage. Wildlife Conservation Center a disappointment. 2 bears, 2 mangy dogs, and not much else. Aerial Tram view was excellent. Recommendation on above reserved.
