What is Your
Ideal Alaskan Vacation?
If you want to visit Alaska, identifying which experience will work best for you is crucial. Otherwise, you may be wasting your time researching and still not know if it's the best fit for your vacation personality.
Have You Ever Wondered?
What is there to do in Alaska?
How do I get to see the glaciers, mountains, wildlife, native culture and more?
What if I don't like cruises, or boats, can I still see everything?
You’ve been wanting to visit the last frontier for a long time. Maybe you’ve seen friends or had family go to Alaska, too, but you’re still not quite sure what the options are. We’ve put together this short post to do just that – tell you about the three ways you can see and experience all that Alaska has to offer.
The Inside Passage. Glacier Bay National Park. Hubbard Glacier. Tracy Arm Fjord. The list could go on. These are just a few of the reasons Alaska is considered part of the top ten cruise wonders of the world because there’s only one way to see some of the most incredible things she has to offer. And that is by cruise ship. There is something so audacious about hearing a glacier calve right before your eyes and hearing the crash as the ice chunks plunge into the sea.
No, not a “land cruise” (which, by the way, we have heard a LOT of people say!). It’s a cruise with a land tour either before (pre-cruise) or after (post-cruise). The tours can be fully escorted which is most common or “on-your-own” where it’s partially or fully on your own. There are definitely differences among the lines, but those may be subtle. Some cruise line have limited offerings for cruisetours, like Holland America, and others have a TON such as Princess (their offerings span the alphabet from A to S, then you add in if it is before or after). Pre-built cruisetours can be from as little as 9-nights (generally a 7-night cruise and then 2 nights on land) to 16-nights or more.
Maybe you’ve cruised Alaska before. Maybe you want to visit during the winter (don’t scoff, there’s a ton of unique things to do only in the winter in Alaska). Maybe cruising realllllllly isn’t your deal. There are amazing packages whether as an escorted tour, completely on-your-own, or custom built to your specifications. You would have the choice of going from the Arctic Circle on down the coastline or just focusing on one area. With the Great Land as big as it is, you could spend a week or several getting to know the beauty.
