Luxury Alaska Cruises
A luxury Alaska cruise takes you to a world of adventure on the edge of civilisation. It’s a place where natural forces continue to mould the land from Arctic plains and ancient glaciers to towering mountains and rushing rivers. Join a bear safari during the annual salmon-run and take in the expansive view of green meadows, lush forests, and turquoise lakes; hike a mountain trail to see a breathtaking scene unfold before you; or go fishing and observe seals lounging on icebergs.
Alaska boasts the largest national park, highest mountain peak, longest coastline and the most incredible scenery in the US. It’s a given that a luxury cruise around Alaska will be a life-changing experience. Whether it’s the awe-inspiring sights of humpback whales breaching the ice-cold waters or brown bears catching salmon from a stream, the nature of Alaska is overpowering.Search All Alaska Cruises ►
Explore untouched landscapes that can’t be experienced anywhere else in the world. Picture kayaking through the pristine fjords with the Northern Lights dancing above, after an afternoon discovering the crystalline blues of the Mendenhall Glacier, showing the last remnants of the ice age.
With over 3 million lakes, 12,000 rivers and thousands more fish-filled streams, a fishing expedition is a must when touring Alaska. Spend the morning in freshwater, saltwater or even dabble in ice-fishing to catch your lunch. If it’s your first time fishing, you can always pick up some Coho salmon or Dungeness crab from the local farmers’ markets. Visit the contrasting deep greens of the Denali National Park and fly over the expansive wilderness in a bush plane. Hikers will find an amazing trail system from accessible nature paths to challenging mountain hikes suitable for walkers and cyclists alike.
As well as nature, a luxury Alaska cruise will immerse you in rich and fascinating culture. With numerous military forts and captivating museums, experience unique native Alaskan history. Before 1959, the region belonged to Russia. You can learn all about the modern history of Russian fur traders and the booming towns of the Klondike Gold Rush. Marvel at the dancers in full ceremonial costumes performing to traditional music and beautiful totem carving.
Our experts say
Alaska is one of my favourite places due to the breath-taking scenery and long hours of daylight to explore! Sailing through the Inside Passage is definitely worth the early morning wake up call. It has magnificent wildlife from humpback whales to bald eagles and brown bears. Not to mention the gleaming glaciers scattered all around the coastline. Experience total silence then a sudden crack of thunder as the glaciers carves and crashed into the sea. Alaska has it all.
