Join us on an expedition cruise to visit fascinating cultures, sail in remote polar waters amidst glaciers and icebegs, and watch for rich marine and terrestial wildlife. Our advanced hybrid-powered ship explores islands and fjords in its quest to discover horned puffins, brown bears, shoreline beauty, amazing fossil forests and dramatic volcanoes.
18 days

The Magical Inside Passage

From Vancouver, we follow the Inside Passage between British Columbia and Alaska. Along the way, we scan for rich wildlife: whales, bears, sea otters and sea lions.

In Ketchikan and Sitka, you can explore cultural and historical highlights and visit restaurants, museums and shops. At Icy Strait Point, we will learn about the Tlingit culture and enjoy a wide range of activity options.

Disenchantment Bay and Glaciers

Next, our ice-resistant ship will venture through Disenchantment Bay to see the spectacular Hubbard Glacier. We hope to spot brown bears on this voyage, particularly at Kinak Bay in beautiful Katmai National Park. We will also have the chance to visit Unga village, an eerie ghost town with picturesque ruins.

Aleutians and Nome Sweet Nome

Next, we reach the Aleutians and Dutch Harbor, home to the "Deadliest Catch" fleet. At the island of St. Paul, we will encounter the habitat of Northern fur seals and masses of sea birds.

Our final exploration days will be spent in the untouched Bering Sea Wilderness. At last, we head into the town of Nome, which was the end point for two of Roald Amundsen's expeditions, and it is where we end this exciting voyage!
