Alaska: By Land and By Sea!
Cruise on the MS Noordam
Aug 19-30 or Aug 23-30, 2020
See the wonders of Alaska come to life on this Holland America Line cruise! Land & Sea travel offers the most authentic, immersive chance to experience the rugged peaks, emerald forests, and wild waters of the Last Frontier.
Denali National Park- is home to the highest mountain in North America and Alaska's Big Five: grizzly bears, caribou, Dall sheep, wolves and moose. Your accommodations will be in the exclusive McKinley Chalet Resort at the Park’s entrance, where you will enjoy soaring views across the Nenana River into Denali National Park from virtually anywhere on this amazing property. The highlight of this stop will be the Tundra Wilderness Tour, an expertly guided six- to eight-hour tour which travels 62 miles into the unspoiled wilderness for up-close views of Mt. Denali and the Big Five.
Anchorage- enjoy a unique ride aboard the luxurious domed rail cars of the McKinley Explorer from Denali to Anchorage. The views are spectacular and will take your breath away.
Seward- is one of Southcentral Alaska’s oldest communities and the start of the Klondike Gold Rush's Iditarod National Historic Trail, a dogsled route. This mellow town welcomes visitors to Resurrection Bay and Kenai Fjords National Park. Our cruise will start here.
Glacier Bay- frosted crags descend into mossy forests and a 1,500-foot-deep fjord demonstrating why it’s both a World Heritage Site and one of the planet’s largest biosphere reserves. This ever-changing, dynamic landscape remains the crown jewel of southeastern Alaska.
Skagway- is preserved as part of the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park, where rangers offer free walking tours around the historic district to immerse you in gold rush lore. Here you’ll also find a vibrant local community with galleries and restaurants serving seafood plucked fresh from nearby waters. You can enjoy the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad, a narrow-gauge railway that traverses the rugged terrain.
Juneau- is the most remote, most beautiful and strangest state capital in the United States. Surrounded by water, forest and mountain scenes, the city is breath-taking, but the real highlight will be whale-watching tours for best views of these awe-inspiring creatures.
Ketchikan- has long been an important hub of the salmon-fishing and packing industries so you can expect to enjoy the local catch of the day during your visit. It’s a great place to explore the rich cultural sights of intricately-carved totem poles complimentary of the Native Alaskan working carvers. You might also catch a dance show in the clan house!
Alaska’s Inside Passage- Arguably one of the greatest cruising routes in the world, the Inside Passage winds through stunning landscapes, from Misty Fjords National Monument to Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve. This route offers opportunities to spot some of Alaska’s most iconic wildlife, with humpback whales and orca gliding alongside the ships, bald eagles soaring overhead, and brown bears lumbering on the shoreline.
