Explore the vast wilderness of Alaska as you journey from Anchorage towards Vancouver. Historic towns and wild landscapes await you in the Last Frontier.
Your adventure begins with a scenic drive from Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city, to Seward, where you can view rehabilitated wildlife at the conservation centre. From there, we set sail into the Prince William Sound, exploring College Fjord and Icy Bay, where you’ll see spectacular glaciers and have an opportunity to spot such wildlife as humpback whales, bald eagles and otters.
We’ll lower anchor at William Henry Bay, an old copper and gold mining site. Look out for deer while hiking through the forest with local guides. Next up is Haines, a creative hub. Learn about the town’s Chilkat Tlingit roots in the museum and browse the many galleries and boutiques.
Southeast Inside Passage
Crossing Holkham Bay, you’ll be treated to magnificent views of either Tracy or Endicott Arm, two pristine fjords with waters so calm they look like a mirror. If weather and ice conditions are favourable, you may be able to explore the fjords in a kayak as part of an optional excursion.
Your journey continues in Sitka, a town with a blended culture of both Russian and Tlingit influence. From there, you can learn about ‘Little Norway’ in Petersburg and marvel at the impressive totem poles in Wrangell and Alert Bay. The bustling city of Vancouver marks the end of your voyage.
