Depart Seward and head for Hubbard Glacier, the longest glacier in the world at approximately 76 miles long. It takes about 400 years for ice to travel the full length of the glacier. Experience gold rush history and boomtown spirit in Skagway on the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad or the Chilkoot Trail. Visit the capital city of Juneau and hike through the rainforest, or take the Mt. Roberts tram above treeline. Explore Native culture in Ketchikan and Icy Strait Point.
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 U.S.
While you're on the water, watch for sealife. The cold, nutrient-rich water in Alaska provides food for humpback whales, orcas, Steller sea lions, Dall porpoises, harbor seals, sea otters, eagles, puffins, and more.
