Gold Rush

To Glaciers

Kayaking on still, sheltered waters at the base of glaciers, trekking in the path of the Gold Rush and following the migrating routes of wild salmon are just the tip of the proverbial iceberg in Alaska. Reflect on the time-honored traditions of the region’s first settlers at Ketchikan’s Totem Bight. Overnights here, at the entrance to the Inside Passage, Kake and Juneau pave the way for deeper exploration of the distinct arts and history and getting acquainted with the wilder residents that inhabit the forests.

Tracy Arm Fjord is a playground for whales and seals, Hubbard Glacier humbles with its imposing and increasing size, and Glacier Bay National Park is home to the world’s largest marine sanctuary.
