the vast Denali National Park. From these comfortable bases, AWA leads groups
of 6 to 10 in hiking, kayaking, rafting, mountain biking.
DETAILS: 4-to 9-day wilderness tours; accommodations in cabins/cabin tents, with
heat, hot water; most have private baths. Buffet and family-style meals. All-inclusive
