Alaska's wild, untamed beauty is just waiting to be discovered, and there is no better way to do so than on this incredible luxury cruise from Vancouver.

Join your ship in the Canadian city of Vancouver and cruise the breathtaking Inside Passage, keeping an eye out for wildlife including eagles and whales. Arrive in Ketchikan, renowned for its impressive totem poles and once known as the 'Salmon Capital of the World'. Enjoy a traditional lumberjack show or perhaps head to an Alaskan lodge for a delicious seafood feast.

The Alaskan capital of Juneau became famous when gold nuggets were discovered at the mouth of Gold Creek. You will have the opportunity to go panning for gold during your time here, or you can enjoy a kayaking adventure on glistening Mendenhall Lake for spectacular views of Mendenhall Glacier. Continue to pretty Skagway, once the gateway to the gold fields. Embrace the gold rush era on a visit to the Klondike Gold Fields or during a gold-panning experience.

Explore the beautiful frontier town of Icy Strait at leisure, or join an exciting shore excursion, including a traditional tribal dance performed by the Tlingits, and a thrilling treetop adventure. Your luxurious ship then cruises Hubbard Glacier to the city of Seward.
