Alaska

BEST FOR...
Stunning Scenery
 

Often referred to as the Last Frontier, this scenic destination has a very short season. Almost all of the destinations provide access to spectacular mountain vistas and views of vast, elegant glaciers. Travellers will also have the chance to observe whales, eagles and bears in their natural habitat.

The short summer season runs from May to mid September, with a climate similar to that of Scandinavia. The days are long and the nights short during this period and it is advised that travellers taking cruises book accommodation with a balcony in order fully enjoy the unique and striking scenery.

Most cruises will include a transit of the Inside Passage, north of Vancouver. This provides splendid views of the islands of British Columbia to the west and the Coastal Mountains to the east. Further north, another must-see landmark is the majestic Hubbard Glacier.

Activities in Alaska generally include helicopter tours, river trips, bear watching, snow rides and whale spotting trips.

The cities are still very reminiscent of the late-19th-century Great Gold Rush. The saloons are worth a visit, as are the Indian forts and many fish restaurants.

Vancouver is an artistic and culturally diverse city – sites such as Stanley Park and English Bay Beach, along with the historic Gastown and Chinatown quarters, are all worth a visit.

Admirers of the Alaskan glaciers may also like to take a look at our Norwegian Fjords trips, which offer views of similarly stunning landscapes.
