Alaska

Take an expedition cruise to Alaska to see iconic wildlife against a backdrop of rugged wilderness and majestic scenery.

A land of staggering beauty

With its dramatic fjords, forests, mountains, bays and glaciers, Alaska is truly breathtaking. You’ll visit historic towns and meet indigenous communities, where you’ll learn about Alaska’s fascinating history and uniquely blended cultures, guided by our Expedition Team.

Explore the wild nature of Alaska on an expedition cruise packed with activities. Enjoy whale watching or bear watching as you experience Alaska up close on excursions, hikes, expedition boat cruising or in kayaks.

Our small expedition ships make it possible to venture beyond the more popular routes into Alaska's unspoiled wilds. Discover more in daily lectures and get wildlife photography tips. Choose from expedition cruises from Vancouver to Seward or Nome, northbound or southbound, taking in Canada’s Inside Passage and also the Aleutian Islands in Alaska.

Top experiences

September to October. Later in the season is the best time for visitors to see the Northern Lights as increased darkness improves their visibility.
