In 2014 Gray Line of Alaska will launch a number of new tour options including self-drive packages, an additional escorted tour and new Alaska-Yukon Highway itineraries.

New for 2014 are three self-drive packages. The Alaska National Parks Self-Drive tour will kick off in Anchorage and explore the Kenai Peninsula, Kenai Fjords National Park and Denali National Park and Preserve. The Alaska by Car tour also travels to two of Alaska’s national parks, with a cruise to Kenai Fjords National Park and an included Tundra Wilderness Tour in Denali National Park and Preserve. The Grand Circle Self-Drive Tour also begins in Anchorage but heads from there to the edge of Wrangell St. Elias National Park, the largest national park in the United States. The itinerary includes everything from a Riverboat Discovery ride and gold panning in Fairbanks to rail travel through Denali National Park.
