Discover Alaska by Luxury Cruise Special Offer

Experience Alaska in luxury on board Silver Muse, sailing beside its rugged coastlines, majestic ice carved fjords, waterfalls and soaring glaciers. The wildlife is spectacular, with humpback whales, orcas, brown and black bears and bald eagles to spot as the ship navigates narrow inlets.

Silver Muse sails the legendary Inside Passage, past serene coastal scenery with countless islands, small fishing villages and breathtaking panoramas.

Travel back in time to learn more about Native Tlingit Indian culture, their art, artefacts and totems at Ketchikan. Visit Juneau, Alaska's state capital which cannot be reached by road, the historic gold rush town of Skagway, and Sitka founded by Russian traders in 1799.

A scenic highlight is viewing of the Hubbard Glacier, which flows 75 miles from the Alaska mountains. Unlike most glaciers, which are retreating, it has been thickening and advancing.

Vancouver to Seward Itinerary

Day 1 - UK - Vancouver (Canada)

Fly from the UK to Vancouver and transfer to the hotel for an overnight stay.

Day 2 - Vancouver

Consistently ranked as one of the world's most livable cities, Vancouver lures visitors with its abundance of natural beauty, multicultural vitality, and cosmopolitan flair. The attraction is as much in the range of food choices - the fresh seafood and local produce are some of North America's best - as it is in the museums, shopping opportunities, and beaches, parks, and gardens. Vancouver is a delicious juxtaposition of urban sophistication and on-your-doorstep wilderness adventure. Today join Silver Muse for your exciting luxury cruise to Alaska.

Day 3 - Cruise the Inside Passage

Take in the magnificent beauty of fjords and waterfalls along the legendary Inside Passage, which stretches 1000 miles north along the coast to Skagway. Keep a look out for whales, dolphins, sea lions and bald eagles as the ship passes between beautiful islands and through narrow inlets.

Day 4 - Ketchikan (Alaska)

Ketchikan is perched along the edge of coastal mountains and surrounded by water, an ideal spot for travellers who want to experience wilderness and adventure. Ketchikan was known as 'The Salmon Capital of the World' at its height as a salmon canning center. Today it stands in the midst of the Tongass National Forest. It is famous for its superb display of totem poles and clan houses.

Day 5 - Juneau

Silver Muse cruises on to Juneau, Alaska's state capital, where the Tongass Rainforest climate provides Juneau with lush terrain and vibrant wildflowers. Early settlers included miners during Alaska's gold rush and Russian fur traders. Sights in and around Juneau not to missed are the magnificent Mendenhall Glacier and the Mt Roberts Tramway which leaves the cruise terminal and ascends 1800ft up the side of the mountain.

Day 6 - Skagway

The town of Skagway sits at the top of the Inside Passage. Its name is said to mean 'home of the north wind'. At the turn of the century, the Klondike Gold Rush turned Skagway into a boomtown. Experience lively saloons and exciting dance hall revues or perhaps ride through town in a vintage streetcar before shopping for hand-crafted jewellery. Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park, downtown, is where shops and saloons founded at the turn of the last century are still open. Another option is to take a ride on the famous White Pass and Yukon Railway which follows a spectacular cliff-side route.

Day 7 - Sitka

Sitka has an eclectic blend of Alaska Native, Russian, and American history in a dramatic and beautiful open-ocean setting. This is one of the best Inside Passage towns to explore on foot, with such sights as St. Michael's Cathedral, Sheldon Jackson Museum, Castle Hill, Sitka National Historical Park, and the Alaska Raptor Center topping the town's must-see list. Sitka was home to the Kiksádi clan of the Tlingit people for centuries prior to the 18th-century arrival of the Russians under the direction of territorial governor Alexander Baranof, who believed the region was ideal for the fur trade. The nearby ocean is a favourite summer haunt of humpback whales.

Day 8 - Cruising Hubbard Glacier

Spend the day cruising the Hubbard Glacier, the longest tidewater glacier on the continent, which flows 75 miles from the Alaska mountains. Unlike most glaciers, which are retreating, it has been thickening and advancing.

Day 9 - Seward - UK

Disembark Silver Muse in Seward and transfer to the airport for the return flight to the UK.

Day 10 - UK

Arrive back in the UK.

Itinerary is subject to change.
