Anyone who wants to spot wildlife will find success in Alaska. Astonishingly, the state is home to more than 98 percent of the Unites States’ brown bear population and nearly 70 percent of the North American population. However, it’s important to exercise caution when seeking out brown bears, and that’s one reason a Celebrity Cruisetour is an excellent method of doing so. Expert tour guides will let you know if, how and when to approach a bear or other wild animal. In addition to brown and black bears, look out for some of the state’s other awe-inspiring animals like polar bears, caribou, moose, mountain goats, orca whales and leatherback sea turtles.

Cruisetour Adventures: Into the Alaskan Wild

Sponsored by Celebrity Cruises

Any Celebrity Cruisetour will get you up close to Alaska’s wildlife and magnificent landscapes, but an Alaska Wildlife Encounter Cruisetour places special emphasis on this feature. For eleven nights and seven ports, you can view animals in the wild against the backdrop of glacier-covered mountains, lush forests and clear bays. Viewing these striking creatures in their natural habitat sure beats a trip to the zoo. Simply add two to seven days onto your seven-night Alaska cruise for the land portion of a Cruisetour, where you’ll stay in luxury lodges along remote roads and live like a well-heeled local, spotting wildlife from the domed windows of an upscale train or deluxe motor coach.

If you have any questions about what you’re seeing, expert tour directors are on hand to answer them. Selected for their roots to local communities and passion for the area, they’ll answer any queries about the scenery and wildlife of their beautiful Alaska. Their encyclopedic knowledge of the region will leave you awed and informed. They can tell you, for example, about the largest advancing tidewater glacier in North America when you enter Yakutata Bay and gaze at the magnificent Hubbard Glacier. They’ll also tell you to look out for the otters, harbor seals and whales that live in the pristine waters.

Enjoy the view from a luxurious railcar

The adventures available on a Cruisetour are endless and can be curated to fit your interests. Have you always wanted to drive a dog sled? We can make that happen. Are you more interested in a relaxing river journey? A guided float on the serene Talkeetna River can be arranged. Not even a seaplane ride over Juneau Icefield and Tongass National Forest is out of reach. Our Cruisetours prove that nature travel doesn’t have to mean roughing it — in fact, travelers don’t sacrifice any luxuries when seeing the great outdoors by land and sea on a Celebrity Cruisetour. Nature and luxury are experienced simultaneously; you’ll be pampered and amazed every step of the way on this unforgettable Alaska escape.
