Summer Solstice was a GREAT time to be in Alaska! Beautiful, friendly, fun, fascinating. History, science, nature, culture, traditions, natural resources, conservation, recycling -just a few of the experiential learnings.
I really enjoyed this trip and would do part of it again. At this point the cruise lines have gotten too plentiful in some areas. These areas are less of what I expected and more touristy. Alaska is beautiful.
First of all, Cole was an amazing tour guide. He was able to teach us about Alaska with personal experiences, stories, and facts, always keeping it interesting and fun to listen to. Denali was truly a highlight with moose, caribou, and bears sighted during the 6 hour tour. Wonderful trip.
This tour was fantastic and really gives travelers an overall view of Alaska as well as a terrific cruise and time in lovely Vancouver. e saw glaciers, grizzly bears, caribou, countless bald eagles, whales and beautiful sock-eyed salmon. We also learned a great deal about Alaska native culture.
What are some of the best excursions to do in Alaska?
If you’re looking to add an excursion to your Alaska tour, consider the Ketchikan & Totem Bight State Park tour on our Denali National Park & Wild Alaska Cruise. Ketchikan is known for its charming harbor, Native American culture, and jaw-dropping scenery. You’ll get to walk along the historic boardwalk where colorful homes line the Inside Passage—it’s one of the state’s most scenic waterways. Then, you’ll head over to the Totem Bight State Park to learn about how the U.S. Forest Services and Native American people worked together to preserve important Native American monuments. You’ll even get to see restored and perfectly reconstructed totem poles and a replica of a traditional chieftain’s house. This Alaska group tour ends with a visit to a nearby lookout point, where you’ll see a waterfall and maybe even spot bald eagles, seals, salmon, deer, whales, and bears.
The first thing to know is that Alaska is really, really big—bigger than most people realize. That means it can take longer than you’d expect to travel between places. When you explore Alaska on a guided tour, we provide comfortable transportation to help get you from place to place, so you can focus on the scenery around you.
