Travelers visit Alaska for six reasons: Wilderness, Wildlife, Glaciers, Mountains, History and Culture. A cruise to Alaska is a fabulous way to explore this breath-taking state, and will provide a chance to see glaciers and marine wildlife, but if you can add at least three more days to your Alaska cruise vacation, you can enrich it with an Alaska cruise tour.
An Alaska cruise tour combines the best of sea and land, offering a land tour along with a cruise. It’s a must for adventurers keen on further exploration inland. Depending on your Alaskan cruise tour itinerary, you might get into the heart of Glacier Bay and experience serenity in the solitude of the mountains, then learn of the gold rush in Fairbanks, and later encounter the tallest peak in North America with a visit to Mt. McKinley.
Also, wildlife is abundant in Alaska’s interior, so during your tour you’ll likely see moose, caribou, bears, wolves and maybe even Dali sheep!
The land portion of your Alaska cruise tour can be either before or after your cruise and includes hotel accommodations and transportation to inclusive activities. Optional excursions include dog sledding, native art tours, jet boat adventures, sport fishing, helicopter tours and much more!
Alaska cruise tour itineraries vary by cruise line, and you can literally choose from hundreds of different tours based on your interests and budget. When planning your vacation, think about what you want to do and see and find the tour that best suits those needs. The choices can be overwhelming and you should not hesitate calling to get some help from an Alaska cruise expert.
