Alaska Cruise Tour Vacations
Despite being one of 50 states in the union, Alaska can still feel like a different world. But, as picturesque as this area is, the old adage "it's the journey, not the destination," holds some weight as well. That's why an Alaskan cruise and land tour vacation is the ideal way to experience America's Last Frontier.
Why take an Alaska Cruise Tour?
The great state of Alaska draws tourists from around the world for many reasons - one of which is the unbridled majesty of its landscapes. There is truly no better way to appreciate the scale of this geographically stunning region than from the comfort of a cruise ship. An Alaskan cruise will give you the opportunity to gaze upon tree-covered mountains, gigantic glaciers and other awe-inspiring geological structures, as well as a range of untamed wildlife.
While the cruising portion of your Alaska Cruise Tour gives you the chance to lay back and relax, taking in Alaska's visual richness from afar, the land tour provides an exciting expedition into the interior of the state. Starting from Seward, you'll take a train or motor coach further into the state, where you'll traverse the rugged and scenic landscape.

Choosing the right Alaska cruise and land tour
There are many things to consider when choosing the right Alaska Cruise Tour for you. First, what time of year do you want to embark on this unforgettable journey? The packages we offer run from the end of May through to late August or early September.
How long would you like the elements of your Alaska cruise and land tour to last? We offer vacation packages that feature three-day to seven-day cruises along the Canadian coast, depending on how much time you'd like to spend relaxing.
Then there's the exciting land tour. If you just want to catch a glimpse of some of Alaska's most notable landmarks, you can opt for a three-day excursion. Or, if you want to throw yourself head first into the Arctic wilderness, you can spend a full 12 days navigating Denali National Park, Mt. McKinley and other must-see sites.
Once you've determined these elements, it's time to consider the order of events. Our Northbound itineraries start in Vancouver, British Columbia, where a Northbound Alaska Glacier Cruise will take you gracefully up the coast of Canada and Alaska before docking in Seward. From there, you'll embark on an inland adventure. Thus, you'll begin your voyage with a bit of luxury and relaxation before testing your senses in the Alaskan wilderness. It can also be more cost-efficient compared to Southbound cruise tours.
By comparison, the Southbound Alaska Cruise Tour itinerary begins with a bit of adventure. First, you'll fly into Fairbanks or Anchorage, and from there you'll navigate the iconic Alaskan terrain before taking a luxury motor coach to Seward, where your Southbound Glacier Cruise awaits. Then, after all that invigorating exertion, you'll be able to kick up your feet and enjoy a blissful cruise down the staggering Alaska coast.
Alaska Cruise Tour vacation schedules can vary widely depending on the cruise line - be it Holland America, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian or Princess - and season, so you'll be able to customize your Alaska Cruise Tour perfectly to your needs.
