Experience the exquisite scenic beauty of Alaska’s Inside Passage and Tracy Arm Fjord, the excitement of Skagway’s goldrush past, the world’s largest collection of totem poles in Ketchikan, the frontier ruggedness – with a dash of cosmopolitan chic - in the capital city of Juneau, and more! This is truly breathtaking country. Take a look at a few of the ports we'll visit on this trip.
Ketchikan, Alaska is truly the beginning of the last frontier. Set at the southernmost entrance to Alaska's famed Inside Passage, Ketchikan is best known for three things: feisty salmon, idyllic scenery, and an incredibly rich Alaska Native culture.
Skagway is nestled at the northernmost reaches of the Inside Passage. The streets are lined with wooden boardwalks and restored buildings, looking much as they did 100 years ago.
Victoria, British Columbia
From Victoria's historic downtown to its rugged coastline and rainforests, you’ll discover a destination filled with diverse and unexpected delights.
