Travel through the calm, protected waters of the Inside Passage, through glacier-carved fjords, snowcapped mountains and lush forests of Sitka spruce and western hemlock. Much of the Passage is within the Tongass National Forest, the largest National Forest in the United States.
Explore Native culture in Ketchikan. Go dog sledding in the capital city of Juneau, or hike through the rainforest. Experience Gold Rush history in Skagway on the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad or the Chilkoot Trail.
Visit Hubbard Glacier (southbound), the longest glacier in the world, or College Fjord (northbound), which boasts the greatest density of tidewater glaciers in Alaska. Enjoy a full day in Glacier Bay National Park, cruising among icebergs and listening to glaciers rumble and crack. Wait and watch for a monumental tower of ice to break free and crash into the ocean, sending spray water hundreds of feet in the air.
