We call on towns with Russian and Norwegian heritage, as well as lively historic fishing villages.

Wonderland of Glaciers

Starting in Seward, we will spend a day exploring the glacier wonderland of College Fjord before setting off to cross the Gulf of Alaska, known for its abundant marine life. We will also visit another iconic site of Alaska – Hubbard Glacier, the largest tidewater glacier in North America.

Grand Scale of Wilderness

The scale and grandeur of Alaska is hard to describe. There is awesome beauty at every turn – from glaciers and mountains, to thick evergreen rainforests, fjords, and sheer cliffs with waterfalls cascading off their sides. In tranquil bays and coves, bears roam and eagles soar from tree to tree.

Alaska’s towns and villages offer rich stories and origins. There is strong Russian history and Norwegian heritage, gold rush towns with their saloons, and native villages adorned with totem poles and intricate carvings.

Unmatched Wildlife

Known as the Last Frontier, Alaska is a wildlife paradise. Whales spend summers feeding in Alaskan waters. Bears roam the sea shores and catch salmon in rivers. Sea lions group on rocky outcrops, otters play in kelp beds, and seals float on icebergs in the fjords. There is nowhere else on Earth quite like Alaska.
