Travel through the calm, protected waters of the Inside Passage, through glacier-carved fjords, snowcapped mountains and lush forests of Sitka spruce and the western hemlock. Much of the passage is within the Tongass National Forest, which at 16.8 million acres is the largest National Forest in the United States. Experience the rich Native Alaskan culture in Ketchikan. Take in a dog sledding adventure in Juneau, or take the Mt. Roberts tram above tree line for spectacular views.
Walk in the footsteps of Klondike Gold Rush prospectors in Skagway, and feel the boomtown atmosphere. Ride the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad as miners did en route to the Klondike gold fields. Visit the Bald Eagle Preserve in Haines where every winter, approximately 3,500 eagles congregate to feed on a late run of chum salmon.
