Things to Do on a Cruise to Alaska

 

Alaska offers a landscape unlike any other in the United States of America. This rugged state is filled with wildlife and the prospect of adventure. While the snow peaks may be covered with snow, you’ll be surprised to find out that during the summer months Alaska can get into the 70s and sometimes up to the 80s at its peak. 


 

Glacier Bay, Alaska
  • The waters surrounding the coast of Alaska are littered with amazing glaciers. Be sure to experience the Mendenhall glacier and Glacier Bay National Park. You’ll also be delighted to sail through Tracy Arm a 30-mile long fjord near Juneau.
     
  • Experience the unique culture of Alaska with a ride on a dog sled pulled by a team of huskies. You will also learn about the history of the yearly dog sled race, the Iditarod and spend some time with Husky pups.
     
Caribou in Denali Nation Park, Alaska
  • Taste the fresh flavors of Alaska at a typical Salmon Bake or at a Crab Feast. Both of these quintessential outdoor events offer authentic Alaskan cuisine served in typical Alaskan fashion.
     
  • Spot caribou, grizzly bears and eagles as you tour the expansive landscape of Denali National Park, home to Mount McKinley, the tallest peak in North America. The park also is a great spot to go fly fishing.
     
Totem pole in Alaska Heritage Center
  • Discover the stories behind Alaska’s natives through their striking totem poles carved into tree trunks, depicting family legends, events and beliefs. Ketchikan is home to the Totem Heritage Center and the Totem Bight State Historical Park.
     
  • Get a grasp on this land by heading up above the clouds in a small plane for a flight seeing adventure. This is truly an adventurous experience to spot the unspoilt landscape from an Eagle’s vantage point.
