Alaska to Canada Special Offer

Discover the remote Alaskan coast's fascinating cultures, dramatic fjords and amazing wildlife on this expedition cruise.

Enjoy an overnight hotel stay in Vancouver, Canada's third largest city, then fly to Nome to embark brand new expedition ship Roald Amundsen. Sail through the Bering Sea to Saint Matthew Island, situated between Alaska and Siberia, then the wildlife lovers' paradise of St. Paul, an important place for northern fur seals and migratory birds. Reaching the Aleutian chain, the first stop is Dutch Harbour, home to the fishing fleet featured in the "Deadliest Catch". At Unga village there is the chance to walk in a 25 million-year-old forest of petrified trees which were preserved by a volcano. There will hopefully be the opportunity to see brown bears in Geographic Harbour in the Katmai National Park.

Kodiak has a history of fur traders from Russia and the Russian influence can be seen here in the beautiful Russian Orthodox Church. Arriving at the Inside Passage the ice-strengthened ship will attempt to negotiate Disenchantment Fjord and cruise along the spectacular Hubbard Glacier to see dramatic icebergs, verdant forest scenery and stunning fjords. Learn about the Tlingit culture at Icy Strait Point and uncover the Alaskan native presence in Sitka and Ketchikan.
