Alaska Cruisetours

Alaskan cruisetours combine a relaxing cruise that gets you nearly nose to nose with incredible glaciers and out-of-this-world landscapes with an inland adventure into Alaska’s wilderness. Tours feature railway travel aboard glass-domed trains, so you don’t miss a second of the stunning Alaskan landscape. Once inland, your accommodations, transportation and most meals will be provided by the cruise line. You’ll head to Denali National Park, a six million acre tract of land that is home to Mt. McKinley, the tallest mountain in America. You can also experience the culture of Alaska with a visit to a facility that cares for huskies and prepares them for the Iditarod dog sledding race. For some extra fun, try your hand at panning for gold at the Trapper Creek Museum.

Things to Do on a Cruisetour to Alaska

 

While on an Alaskan cruisetour there are tons of activities to do and sites to see as you are getting the best of both worlds. You’ll have the opportunity to see a grand view of Alaska from its glacier laden coastline and its rugged inland wilderness. Featured below are a few of our favorite things to do on an Alaskan cruisetour:

 


Alaska Floatplane
  • Learn about the natives of Alaska at the Alaska Native Heritage Center in Anchorage. Here you’ll discover all 11 of Alaska’s native groups and learn about their beliefs and customs through song, dance and games.
     
  • Take a small plane to get a great view of Alaska and then embark on a nature walk where you’ll end up at a viewing platform where you can spot black bears feeding on salmon in the Tongass National Forest.
     
Alaskan Salmon
  • Experience the exhilaration of whitewater rafting in the Nenana River. This river offers Class III and IV rapids which are perfect for first timers and those looking for a thrill.
     
  • Spend a full day on the Copper River in search of Alaska’s prized salmon. The Copper River is famous for its king salmon. For a fee you can even have your catch shipped home, frozen of course.
     
Panning for gold in Alaska
  • The Gold Rush is on when you visit Cooper Landing where you’ll learn how to pan for gold just like the prospectors did in the 1800s.
     
  • Soar above the mountains on a flightseeing tour in Denali. You’ll land on a glacier and be stunned by the sheer magnificence of Alaska.

Alaska Cruisetours: Departure Ports

A cruisetour is a land vacation combined with a cruise, so a major factor in determining which port you depart from is whether you cruise before or after your land tour. Many Alaska cruises and cruisetours start from Vancouver, an exciting city on the west coast of Canada. Here you can explore city life or commune with nature at Stanley Park. For those starting with the land tour portion, Seward offers a great departure port. Named after the man who convinced the U.S. to purchase Alaska from Russia, Seward is an important town and is on the Iditarod trail.
