Alaska is a cosmopolitan mixture of Native American, Asian and American culture. Discover the country’s offerings by seeing the mountainous scenery, glacial lakes, and wildlife. The environment and wildlife is core to what Alaska has to offer. Watch the native eagles soaring above the coastline and maybe catch sight of a magnificent whale in its natural habitat.
The best time to explore Alaska is during the summer months as the country is really thriving. Take a tour of the land, learn about the wildlife and see how magical Alaska really is. The summer months mean warmer weather and water, meaning it’s the ideal time to do some Humpback Whale spotting. Trips are also available in the spring and autumn, when the water is usually calmer.
One of the benefits of an Alaska cruise is being able to add a tour onto the beginning or end of your holiday. If you’re travelling from Vancouver - make sure you don’t miss the magical tour of the Rockies. Another popular extra for holidaymakers is a visit to the Denali National Park, a beautiful, natural and untouched Alaskan gem. Speak to our Cruise Experts for more information.
Catch your cruise from Vancouver, Canada to add another spectacular destination to your holiday. Vancouver is a mix of bustling city life and incredible scenery, with the Cascade Mountains prominently shaping the landscape. Head to the ‘old town’ in Vancouver to discover historical architecture, antique stores and sumptuous restaurants.
If you sail from Vancouver, be sure to visit the mystical Juneau, a spiritual place set with beautiful views of the famous Mendenhall Glacier, surrounded by phenomenal scenery, including Mount Juneau. When visiting Ketchikan be sure to call to the Totem Heritage centre, which is home to the biggest collection of Totem Poles on Earth.
Alaska really is a place not to be missed. The cruises available really are eye opening and will show you the true beauty of our planet. Perfect for singles, couples, groups and families the onboard cruise staff will ensure that everybody has a fabulous holiday to remember.
