Embark on the adventure of a lifetime! Board your southbound Celebrity Alaska Cruise in Seward, Alaska. Travel from Seward to Russell Fjord and the magnificent Hubbard Glacier in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park.
Hubbard Glacier is the largest tidewater glacier in North America. It is 76 miles long, 7 miles wide, and 600 feet tall at its terminus, 350 feet are exposed above the waterline and 250 feet are below the waterline. While 95% of Alaska's glaciers, and most glaciers worldwide, are retreating, Hubbard Glacier is advancing at approximately 80 feet per year.
Experience gold rush history and the boomtown atmosphere in Skagway on the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad or the Chilkoot Trail. Go dog sledding in the capital city of Juneau, hike through the rainforest, or take the Mt. Roberts tram above treeline. Explore Native culture in Ketchikan and Icy Strait Point.
Travel through the pristine Inside Passage along the coast of Alaska into British Columbia, through glacier-carved fjords, snowcapped mountains, and lush forests of Sitka spruce and western hemlock. Much of the passage is within the 16.8-million-acre Tongass National Forest, the largest National Forest in the U.S.
Watch for bald eagles, bears, moose, and mountain goats on the shores and mountainsides and whales, sea lions, porpoises, seals, and sea otters in the ocean.
