Straits Of

Wild Beauty

Prepare to be dazzled by one of Mother Nature’s greatest tapestries in the Pacific Northwest, where adventures leave you breathless, both by their jaw-dropping majesty and adrenaline-inducing nature. Explore the point where nature meets industry in Ketchikan, salmon capital of the world and a hub of quaint shops and activities. Venture to Juneau, known as Gold Rush City and the starting point for aerial glacier discoveries, and Sitka, Russia’s former New World capital and a rare stop for travelers.

Prince Rupert and Vancouver showcase Canadian cosmopolitan glitter set amidst forested wonderlands – where skyscrapers and eagles both soar overhead, and enormous brown bears and roam just beyond the city limits.
