Discover Alaska - the Last Frontier!
Flightseeing in Denali National Park, Alaska
Alaska is the land of glaciers, mountains, and some of the most unique wildlife viewing in North America. Alaska is also a vast land, ranging from the temperate forests of the Inside Passage and Southeast to the icy vastness of the Arctic. In between, small villages, glaciers, stunning natural beauty, and accessible wildlife sightings make Alaska a destination well worth exploring.
Despite its remoteness, there are options aplenty for the traveler interested in discovering the Last Frontier. In the Southeast and Inside Passage, luxury expedition cruises on small ships allow the adventurous soul and connoisseur to see glaciers and wildlife up close and personal while not compromising on the travel experience. Larger ships cover more ground, providing a comfortable yet efficient way to visit.
On the Alaskan mainland, a variety of custom, privately guided tours or small group journeys - including travel on the legendary Alaskan Railroad - offer the chance to appreciate the vastness of Alaska's wilderness and its unique wildlife.
Before or after visiting Alaska, don't miss the opportunity to discover the Canadian province of British Columbia and the Canadian Rockies by rail on the luxurious Rocky Mountaineer train, offering another unique perspective on the wilderness.
Alaska is, of course, mostly a place best visited in the summer. In addition to a pleasant climate, long days offer the opportunity to experience the Midnight Sun...and some of the most impressive flowers I've ever seen (imagine what your garden could do with 24 hours of daylight!).
Are you considering a trip to Alaska? Do you want to make sure your visit hits the highlights while offering a chance to get off the beaten path? Are you looking to combine an Alaskan cruise with a land tour, but have questions about which ship and tour are right for you? As a veteran Alaskan traveler and certified destination expert, I can help you sift through the clutter and choose the right option for you - not for someone else.
