TOUR OVERVIEW:

Those who book before January 1, 2019 will get private Iditarod Husky visit ($129 value) included FREE!

The great Alaska wilderness, the last frontier with Buddy Davis of Answers in Genesis. Our Christian-based adventure features the magnificence of God’s glory in Denali National Park, the backcountry river areas with panoramic views of the Alaskan range, a stay in the quaint town of Talkeetna where we will fish, explore, worship, sightsee and study at the base of North America’s tallest mountain – Denali, the formerly named Mount McKinley. This Alaskan adventure is a trip like no other. You are not getting off a cruise ship with 4,000 other tourists to swarm a small tourist shop or fishing hole. You are right there amongst the wildlife and people of the land of Alaska. We have a five-star line up of individuals who will host you in log cabins and unique Alaskan lodges. No high rises and elevators for this group. Pull up an Adirondack chair or camp chair and sit along the river banks. Our optional air program departs Seattle at 6:55 PM and arrives Anchorage at 9:34 PM ($579 per person roundtrip returning from Fairbanks).

I loved it!  It truly was the adventure of a lifetime.  My son had a wonderful experience, too.  Thank you for making the trip kid-friendly!

Loretta & Jacob S.

Everything was wonderful, and first class. Hotels and ship were top of the line. Our Greek Orthodox guide, Sayat was fantastic. So much knowledge and history and enthusiasm! Pastor Lutzer’s teachings were much enjoyed and enlightening. Rebecca is a sweetheart.

I enjoyed this tour so much, that I’d like to do it again sometime, maybe in the Spring season. PS…our group enjoyed each others’ company so much that we are having a reunion party coming up on Monday the 21st!

To see Biblical sites in which Paul ministered as well as see sites of some of the churches of Revelation was an opportunity of a lifetime. The Bible teaching was absolutely outstanding. Of course, being on a sailing ship was delightful as well. I highly recommend a Footsteps of Paul.

1. Through the use of The Word, we trust that once…

Through the use of The Word, we trust that once you have returned from our Christian tours, you will have gained a deeper knowledge of the scriptures and the multiple layers of teaching and truths that are inside each.

Isaiah 55:11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

2. You can be assured an experience like our previous participants…

You can be assured an experience like our previous participants, who have gained an appreciation of how God uses everything for His glory and for the purpose of furthering knowledge and understanding. You will see this as you encounter the geology of the land, the geography where events actually occurred and the archaeology that may (or may not!) still exist. Furthermore, through the remaining people in the land, the practices still in place and demography that have endured.

Colossians 1:20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.

3. Further, our assurance is received that through The Word…

Further, our assurance is received that through The Word; the teachings you will be exposed will solidify the truth which you and your family have been taught by seeing, touching and hearing the scriptures each day. We assert and firmly believe Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

4. You and your family will experience…

You and your family will experience the oneness of the body of Christ during our trip.
