Alaska is one of the most scenic places on earth. Snow-capped mountains, giant calving glaciers, bald eagles, glacier-carved fjords, abundant wildlife, and quaint little towns – now that’s Alaska! It’s nature at it’s best. And the best way to see Alaska is on a cruise or cruise tour.
View this spectacular nature and the awesome scenery as you cruise the inside passage. You may see black bears or grizzly bears along the shore line, or seals lounging on floating icebergs. You’ll get an even better view of this unforgettable wildlife with binoculars — so don’t forget them! Be sure to also bring a camera with zoom capabilities to capture this amazing scenery!
