Travel advisors can now pre-register clients for the VIP itinerary.
“As a Juneau resident and adopted Tlingit clan member of the Killer Whale house we have the opportunity to share the beauty of the capital city and the honored lands of the Tlingit people with more visitors than ever,” shares CEO Dan Blanchard, when asked about the race. “After an iconic 140-mile race in some of Juneau’s most beautiful locations, we can’t wait to show guests what it’s like to adventure in Alaska’s outback. A place unlike anywhere else in the world.”
The all-inclusive VIP charter combines history, culture, and daily multi-activity excursions for all fitness levels, concluding in Seattle. Adventurers can expect to immerse themselves in an environment rich in nature, wildlife, and unmatched camaraderie onboard.
The 86 guest Wilderness Legacy is expected to have a full manifest for the August 2022 sailing with the primary IRONMAN Alaska registrations already sold out. “We’ve always done things a little differently.” shares Blanchard. “Now we can pair our rockstar adventure experiences with the epic IRONMAN brand, our long-term partners at Travel Juneau and my Tlingit brothers and sisters to create an unmatched race-cation for the 2022 event. We are honored to be a part of this event.”
