|The Inside Passage. This thousand-mile waterway is a magical world of forests, mountains, emerald islands floating on the blue sea and deep fjords penetrating the wilderness. Keep your binoculars ready for whales and porpoises. You might spy an Indian village hidden in the trees along the shore, or a brave little fishing boat.
Glacier Bay National Park. The marine wilderness of Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve provides opportunities for adventure. Amidst majestic scenery, Glacier Bay offers us now, and for all time, a connection to a powerful and wild landscape. The park has snow-capped mountain ranges rising to over 15,000 feet, coastal beaches with protected coves, deep fjords, tidewater glaciers, coastal and estuarine waters, and freshwater lakes. Diverse habitats support a variety of marine and terrestrial wildlife, with opportunities for viewing and research that allow us to learn more about the natural world.
Hubbard Glacier. From its source on Mount Logan in the Yukon territory, Hubbard Glacier stretches 76 miles to the sea at Yakutat and Disenchantment Bays. It is the longest tidewater glacier in Alaska, with an open calving face over six miles wide. In May 1986, the Hubbard Glacier surged forward, blocking the outlet of Russell Fiord and creating "Russell Lake."College Fjord. Dozens of glaciers meet tidewater in this inlet rimmed by icy crags, frozen in time. You may even spot wildlife: seals, sea lions, bald eagles, mountain goats, perhaps humpback and killer whales. Your memories of this day will stay with you always.
||Ketchikan. Come ashore to one of the state's most picturesque communities. Fishing boats, pleasure craft and planes shelter in the harbor. Enjoy a shore excursion like the Rainforest Canoe and Nature Trail, Backcountry Jeep® & Canoe Safari or the Rainforest Island Adventure. Before or after your excursion take time to browse the Creek Street boutiques and waterfront shops.
Juneau. Alaska's capital snuggles between Gastineau Channel and Mt. Juneau. Have an adventure in Juneau on the Mendenhall Glacier Float Trip, Historic Gold Panning Adventure & Salmon Bake, Glacier View Sea Kayaking, Historic Gold Mining & Panning Adventure, Mendenhall Lake Canoe Adventure, Whale Watching Adventure, Whale Watching & Salmon Bake, Best of Juneau® or the Gold Creek Salmon Bake.
Skagway. The sidewalks are all but rolled up in Skagway come winter, so you can only imagine the frightful conditions endured by the gold prospectors who passed through en route to the Yukon, with a mandatory ton of supplies to be hauled with them over the steep and treacherous Trail of '98. 21st-century summertime visits to Skagway require nothing of the sort, but you can still ride the antique White Pass & Yukon narrow-gauge railway up through silvery-purple rock faces, past Deadhorse Gulch, to see what it was like back then.
You may want to set out on an adventure in a 4-wheel drive Jeep Wrangler® on the Yukon Sightseeing Adventure by Hummer® or, for a dining experience you'll never forget, don't miss the Liarsville Gold Rush Trail Camp & Salmon Bake where you'll enjoy Alaskan Wild Salmon grilled over an open fire.
