Road Scholar in Alaska

Are you planning to attend a Denali Road Scholar program?
Talkeetna Travel offers friendly, free service to customize your entire Alaska itinerary!

Talkeetna, Alaska in the summer.

My grandson Sam and I have returned from our Elderhostel in Denali and I want to thank you for all your fine work and recommendations. Your suggestion that we do the Fjord Tour was perfect. We had wonderful weather, saw whales, fantastic birds, and glaciers calving. Loved the train rides. Enjoyed Anchorage Saturday Market and Phyllis's Cafe crab.

Thank you for all your hard work and when we come back and bring the whole family... I am calling you to arrange our trip.

Ronda Clark - Denali Elderhostel 2007

Talkeetna Travel has worked with numerous Road Scholar clients (Road Scholar is the new program name for Elderhostel Inc.) since 1999. We are familiar with the variety of programs offered and also the potential for confusing logistics getting to and from Alaska. 

We can help you with everything including airfare, transportation to and from your program, and overnight accommodations if they are needed (including discounted Anchorage hotel rates). We will also help you arrange custom side trip extensions, either before or after your Road Scholar Program. 

We will work hard finding you the most convenient flights times at the best price, whether it be an open jaw or a direct round trip.  We will investigate all the options.

What does our expert help cost you? Nothing! We do not charge anything for our reservation service (except for a reasonable fee for booking airline tickets, since travel agents no longer receive commissions from airlines).

Let us do the work for you so you can relax and enjoy your vacation!

Denali Road Scholar Programs“Thanks so much for all your help, you were so patient with us!” What rich memories we have of that 3 ½ weeks... and how I hope to return! I will definitely call Talkeetna Travel for help planning my next trip."

Lou Ann Neaderhiser - Denali Elderhostel 2001

To those of you at Talkeetna Travel who helped us put this little trip together, thank you so much. We wouldn't have had the same experience if we had booked this trip ourselves. Your experience really helped us see Alaska and have a trip of a lifetime! ...Again let me say thanks for all of us, here in Texas.

Judith Sharpe-levy 2007

My wife and I attended an Elderhostel in June and you arranged for lodging before and after the Elderhostel and transportation to and from. Everything worked out perfectly you did a great job and we will recommend you to anyone we know who is coming to Alaska.
