An unforgettable cruise discovering the wilds of North America

  • 18-day expedition cruise from Vancouver to Alaska, through Canada’s Inside Passage and onto the Aleutian Islands and the islands of the Bering Sea.

  • Experience spectacular scenery, scout for bears and enjoy some of the best birdwatching in Alaska on the islands of St Paul and St Matthew.

  • Discover the history of gold prospectors and explorers as we encounter indigenous Tlingit and Aleut cultures on this epic North American adventure.

Alaskan wildlife and Canadian fjords

From Vancouver, we visit the pristine mountains and waterfalls of Misty Fjord and the glaciers of Icy Bay. In true expedition style, you'll go small boat cruising, watching seals relax on icebergs. Look out for black and brown bears as we tour Alaska’s Kodiak Islands and Katmai National Park, and the spectacular seal and bird colonies of St Paul Island.

Fascinating North American history

As you cruise along the coast with the Expedition Team, learn about the region's native Aleut, Alutiiq and Tlingit peoples, historic Wrangell, Sitka's Russian influences, the WWII history of Dutch Harbor and the gold rush era in Nome.
