Alaska Cruise and Land Tours
A variety of landtours are available, integrated with the beginning or end of your voyage.
The most popular take you into the Denali National Park for wilderness trips in search of moose, bear and caribou. These may include stays in the Park at dedicated Lodges, or overnights in the towns of Anchorage or Fairbanks. A range of excursions are available to let you experience the true Alaska - from float plane trips to tours into the Alaska tundra in search of caribou, moose or bears.
Also popular is a tour in the Rocky Mountains, often with a train through the best scenery. Several routes are possible of different lengths, and may start at Calgary before crossing the Rockies to Vancouver.
Our small ships are informal in style and more flexible in their exact itinerary. They may carry kayaks or zodiacs for expeditions in areas such as Glacier Bay. These ships can visit smaller ports and offer a more intimate style with fewer passengers.
Larger ships visit the major ports, and get as close as possible to the glaciers and natural attractions. These ships offer more amenities, a choice of restaurants, and provide a wide range of entertainment. Optional excursions at ports cover Alaska's many sightseeing opportunities.
Starting at Seattle or Vancouver there are Princess, Holland America or NCL. These are 'out and back' visiting the Inside Passage or the Hubbard or Sawyer Glaciers, or one-way from Vancouver to Anchorage, usually with a day visiting Glacier Bay and its famous Margerie Glacier and perhaps College Fjord with its 16 tidewater glaciers.
Our luxury ships have fewer passengers on board than larger ships but have the facilities and service of a top quality hotel, with dining arrangements to match. Typical of luxury lines visiting Alaska are Silversea, Regent Seven Seas, Oceania and Compagnie du Ponant.
