We've got great connections.
This is our Alaska
When you first feel the urge to experience
Alaska, it’s hard to let it go. A photograph of a glacier can take your
breath away, so you can only imagine how powerful the real thing will be.
Imagine raising your gaze to see how high the mountains rise, and listening
to tales of explorers and adventurers who trekked through this wild land.
Once you feel that connection to Alaska, it’s your turn to bring it to life.
We have over 20 years of in-depth experience in this destination, earning
top honors as Alaska Cruise Advisors. In Alaska, you’ll get to meet mushers
and lumberjacks. Taste amazingly fresh flavors from the sea. Grow closer to
your loved ones as you soar in a helicopter or hike through a rainforest.
And now you can experience the Ultimate Alaska Adventure on a 17 day Alaska
Cruisetour, that included a 7 day Voyage of the Glaciers Cruise.
The Whales, Wonders and Wildlife of it all.
Let us share it with you.
Presenting the Best of Alaska Cruises and Alaskan Cruisetours.
When you gaze up at towering glaciers, get up close with whales and other
wildlife, view spectacular mountain ranges, see huge moose, visit rugged
frontier towns, and see more stars than you could ever possibly count, you
feel something new. You feel different.
Only a few places in the world could earn such a grand
reputation. The Great Land not only speaks to Alaska’s
incredible size, sprawling nearly 600,000 square miles
and encompassing widely diverse terrain, but to its great
wonders as well. Within this expanse lie Denali, North
America’s tallest mountain that rises more than 20,000 feet,
and millions of acres of nationally protected forests, preserves
and parks - including the iconic Glacier Bay National Park.

Wolf, Moose, Caribou, Eagles, Whales and Bear! " Our trip was excellent. The room,
with the upgrades, was amazing! We saw many eagles (bald and
golden), one bear, many whales, including one breach, seals,
one bear, one wolf, moose and caribou, and many smaller
animals.. If we travelled during salmon run, we probably
would have seen more bear and eagles. The scenery is to die
for, the vistas spectacular. The ship was great; service,

On a vacation
full of adventure, one of the
greatest highlights is viewing
glaciers from the comfort of your
ship. Every voyage features at least
one day viewing glaciers, and many
have two scenic days, including
Glacier Bay National Park. With park
rangers providing insights into how
these natural wonders are formed,
your perspective is beyond compare.
Enjoy open views on deck or from the
privacy of your own balcony and, if
the timing is right, marvel over the
spectacle of ice chunks shearing off
a glacier crashing into the waters
below with a thunderous roar.
Exciting excursions in port bring
you even closer to glaciers as you
hike, ride a dog sled or soar over
the ice in a helicopter
A camera, a pair of binoculars and a
sense of curiosity are all you need
get the most out of your adventures
in Alaska. From the waters to the
land, this scenic backdrop is
teeming with wildlife. The ship deck
or your balcony are perfect spaces
to spot whales breaching out at sea.
An excursion through Tongass
National Forest reveals bald eagles
flying overhead and black bears
feeding on salmon from rushing
streams. Choose a cruisetour that
includes a visit to Denali National
Park, the 6-million-acre home to the
Big Five: grizzly bears, moose,
wolves, Dall sheep and caribou.
Anchored by immense mountains,
Alaska is practically defined by its
towering peaks. See them from every
angle as you sail past rugged shores
or travel on land in a glass-domed
rail car. Incredibly, 12 of the 13
highest summits in the U.S. are
located in Alaska — all dominated by
Denali, North America’s tallest peak
at 20,310 feet. Denali National Park
is home to the tallest mountain in
North America, Denali at 20,310
feet, as well as over six million
acres of diverse wilderness. This
includes the famous Big Five -
grizzly bears, moose, wolves, Dall
sheep and caribou. With only one
park road, nature exists as it has
for thousands of years, and your
visit offers a glimpse into an era
that most can’t imagine, even in
their wildest dreams. The Great Room

Why Is Alaska So Popular Today?
From our Blog...
What destination do families cruising for the first time and seasoned
travelers like most? Caribbean, you say? Oh, think again. When it comes to
travel, they both love to take a land & sea vacation [aka a cruisetour] to
The Great Land of Alaska. In our 20-plus years of working with couples,
families and groups to Alaska, the amount of travelers we take on cruise and
land vacations has grown over 15% every year. It continues to grow
organically, from social media and word of mouth. So says Raye Trencher,
Alaska Destination Specialist, at Alaska Cruise Advisors, presented by
Cruise Direct Online. She further adds: " For most people Alaska remains
their new destination, unlike the Caribbean where most people have been
there multiple times."
One of the Biggest Reasons People Visit
Glaciers feel alive. They groan, creak and shudder on their march to the
sea, punctuated by the booms and crashes of "white thunder" — a sound that
echoes across the water when ice calves into the ocean below. On an Alaska
cruise, let us show you Glacier Bay National Park — a UNESCO World Heritage
Site — Endicott Arm & Dawes Glacier, College Fjord or Hubbard Glacier.
Untamed, Just like Alaska
Alaska is home to a rich array of wildlife, from the famous Big Five animals
that live in Denali National Park — grizzly bears, wolves, moose, Dall sheep
and caribou — to bald eagles and humpback whales that migrate through the
Inside Passage. On a cruise to Alaska, live a nature lover's dream in the
land where guests can catch postcard-worthy sights.
With national parks and four of North America’s tallest mountains, Alaska’s
wilderness has been preserved for generations. Denali National Park is
larger than Vermont and home to the highest peak on the continent.
Meanwhile, Glacier Bay National Park has over 2,000 square miles of glacial
coverage. Along with Wrangell-St. Elias and Kenai Fjords, a world of natural
wonders awaits on an Alaska cruise or cruisetour.
One of the reasons Alaska is so popular today is that you can marvel at
sunlight at midnight and close-ups of whales, eagles and caribou. You can
delight in Denali's (formerly known as Mt. McKinley ) majesty and meadows
carpeted with wildflowers. Amid unsurpassed grandeur and serenity, the true
wilderness of Denali is calling. Catch sight of a
humpback whale or wolf pups
frolicking in the snow. Alaska is as rustic and romantic as one could ever
Alaska: "Whales, Wonders and Wilderness"
Sailing into ports along the Inside Passage, you'll get a glimpse into the
welcoming personality of the Great Land, and a taste of the fascinating gold
rush history that has left its mark on the region's streets, saloons and
storefronts. These are serene waters, where one moment you can be sailing
through a wide bay of barrier islands and the next you're cruising through a
narrow waterway flanked by towering forested walls. That's the splendid
spectacle of the Inside Passage - the scenery is constantly changing, from
picturesque shores to friendly coastal towns. Stretching from Puget Sound,
Washington, through the British Columbia coast and into the Gulf of Alaska,
the Inside Passage includes more than 1,000 islands, seemingly endless shore
line and thousands of idyllic coves and bays. Sailing from Seattle, San
Francisco, or between Whittier and Vancouver, you'll marvel at the
breathtaking scenery and encounter ports like Gold Rush-era Skagway and
Ketchikan, the capital city of Juneau and British-flavored Victoria. These
are places where you can visit a Native village, learn about the triumphs
and tragedies of Alaska's Gold Rush heyday or go dog sledding with a real
musher. The Inside Passage has stories to tell that will give you a greater
understanding of the culture, history and lifestyle of the Great Land.
In Alaska you'll find Fjords carved by mighty glaciers stretch toward
white-capped mountains. Salmon leaping up from the rivers and straight into
the mouths of waiting bears. Playful pods of whales and dolphins swim
through shimmering waters, dog-sledding and the northern lights, and rich
emerald forests reach into impossibly blue skies. Cruising Alaska will
transform your view of the world as you experience the Great Land's vast
wilderness, enduring historic Gold Rush towns and communities.
"Indeed Alaska is the perfect adventure , from the mild to the wild,
there is something exciting to do for everyone."
It's easy to understand why the multiple choices for adventure in Alaska are
perfect for families, couples, friends and family groups seeking to check
off one more item on their bucket list and make once-in-a-life time
Often, visiting Alaska has as much to do with what people may feel as with
what they will see. There is a mystique that surrounds Alaska. To some it
represents a dream, a trip of a life time, a life altering event, a chance
to reach out and touch something inside themselves that is wild and
beautiful like they imagine Alaska to be. Our job is to put that dream - or
as much as possible of it - within reach to you. Alaskan cruising is
affordable, only the memories are priceless! When it comes to planning your
trip, Alaskan Cruises & Land and Sea Vacations are more economical than you
might think. With a wide range of options and choices, there's a cruise or
cruisetour to suit most any budget.
To fully experience Alaska, you'll want to discover its interior from
Anchorage to Fairbanks with Denali National Park in between. On an Alaska
cruise, you'll journey along the southeast coastline of Alaska, experiencing
its glaciers, nature's ever-changing and fragile masterpieces. But on an
Alaska Land & Sea Vacation you'll uncover so much more, by combining a
seven-night Alaska sailing with a small-group tour into its magnificent
inland destinations. Stay in the finest available lodges and embark on
remote roads and railways in deluxe transportation. Visit Glacier Bay
National Park, and stay a minimum two nights in or near Denali National Park
and take the Tundra Wilderness Tour through Denali. And, if you are
traveling south of Anchorage, the Kenai Fjord National Park boat tour is a
Shore & Land Excursions beyond your port of call offer unique one of a
kind fun and adventure. Consider a private whale-watching excursion or a unique dog-sled
experience; or helicopter land directly on a glacier, or go fishing on
remote mountain lake. Perhaps taking the White Pass and Yukon train, built
in 1898 during the Klondike Gold Rush. The train is a narrow-gauge railroad
linking the port of Skagway, Alaska, with Whitehorse, the capital of Yukon.
On the train you can experience the breathtaking panorama of mountains,
glaciers, gorges, waterfalls, tunnels, trestles and historic sites from the
comfort of vintage passenger coaches. Choose kayaking ,trekking, panning for
gold or take a gentle raft ride to view hundred's of eagles.
