Sail roundtrip from Seattle to Alaska for 9 days, including a full-day cruising the astounding Glacier Bay. This National Park and World Heritage Site has thousands of glaciers, of which 50 are named and 7 are active and calve into the sea. The beauty of this area is captivating. In Icy Strait Point, you’ll find the state’s largest Native Tlingit village and the world’s longest zip line. Since every shop is Native-owned, this is the place for authentic crafts. Skagway offers an entertaining look at Alaska’s gold-mining past. You can even pan for gold yourself. It’s an easy town to explore on foot but to view Alaska’s gorgeous interior, take a ride on the White Pass Railway. For a tasty treat, find the Klondike Doughboy shop. Their warm, fried dough sprinkled with cinnamon sugar is fast becoming a legend.
Witness the magnificent Endicott Arm Fjord & Dawes Glacier.
