DAY 4: REDOUBT BAY | BEAR SANCTUARY

Approximately 90% of Alaska is not served by roads, which is why aviation plays such an important role in everyday life. Enjoy the chance to Ride Like a Local when you soar by plane over Cook Inlet en route to Redoubt Bay, a critical habitat for mammals, fish and hundreds of birds. Cruise its waters with your family on a pontoon boat, enjoying the scenery. Later, continue to your accommodations in a rustic-modern lodge that overlooks Denali National Park and North America’s tallest peak, Denali (formerly Mount McKinley).
