Whether you’re a history buff looking to make your way in the footsteps of Klondike Gold Rush stampeders, or someone who wants to see the beauty of Northern wildlife with your own eyes, look no further than Alaska.
This Northern State offers incredible opportunities for wildlife viewing. Bring your best camera: seals, humpback whales, orcas, sea otters, and hundreds of species of seabirds are just some of the wildlife you’ll see in Alaska.
Several of our tours offer you the opportunity to enjoy a ferry ride through the Inside Passage, the Kenai Peninsula, and on the Lynn Canal, with beautiful glaciers and landscapes all around you. Or, even better: add the optional Kenai Fjords National Park tour to your trip. This fully-narrated, six-hour tour is truly the best way to enjoy sightings of marine wildlife in its natural habitat – an experience you’ll never forget, even if you don’t bring enough film!
If, instead, Gold Rush history is what brings you to Alaska, bring your walking shoes. Visit Seward first before making your way to Dawson City (Canada) with our Best of Yukon and Alaska tour, and don’t miss any of the other Northern highlights on the way. Or, if trekking is more your speed, join us on the Chilkoot Trail, the Stampeders’ Route and experience the original backpacker’s route to the far North.
Finally, for a short Alaskan tour, take a look at our “Alaska, the Great Land” package. This comfortable hotel roundtrip vacation departs from Anchorage and is the perfect land add-on to any cruise. You’ll be guided on this 8-day trip through communities small and large, experience the life of a dog musher, have the opportunity to see black bears, bison, and more, and hike up America’s largest roadside glacier!
