An unforgettable cruise across the great North American wilderness

  • 18-day cruise from Vancouver to Alaska via the Aleutian Islands and Misty Fjords, taking in wondrous scenery, diverse cultures and neolithic history.

  • Discover remarkable wildlife havens, and scout for Alaskan bears and whales, as you journey to Kodiak Island, and the remote St Paul and St Matthew.

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

Inside Passage from Canada

From Vancouver, we visit the pristine mountains and waterfalls of Misty Fjords before seeking out totem poles and petroglyphs in Wrangell. Then to Sitka and Icy Bay hoping to see seals relaxing on icebergs.

Around the Aleutian Islands

Look out for black and brown bears as we tour Alaska’s Kodiak Islands and Katmai National Park, then to the fishing village of Chignik and abandoned Unga. After Dutch Harbor – and the spectacular seal and bird colonies of St Paul Island – we reach Gold-Rush-era Nome.
