Best way to see Alaska? Your Way by Land or Sea

Let me share with you the many ways you can travel to and experience Alaska.

  • Cruise
  • Plains
  • Trains
  • Automobiles

After just cruising Alaska’s inside passage I am in love with our 49th state. Mike and I were awe struck by its beauty and vast wilderness.

We visited the charming towns of Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway each so unique.

Each town offers it’s own history, distinctive cultures and fun activities.  Think dog sledding, sea plane tours, hiking a glacier by helicopter, kayaking or visiting the local brewery and shopping. Imagine all the crab, salmon and gourmet food you can eat!

You can book a cruise on a large fun cruise line, luxury small ships and even sail with National Geographic guides, or combine the cruise with a land tour. For 2024, I’m offering a luxury small explorer group cruise on Ponant.

Or, take a land only tour, by car, railroad or Motor coach.

I was so inspired after our trip, I couldn’t wait to researched how to cruise further up into Alaska, and learn about land trips, and find explorer style cruising with nature and adventure in mind.

Imagine the many outdoor adventures to experience. With Alaska’s  14 mountain ranges, the northern lights/Aurora borealis, hiking, kayaking , wildlife sighting and  glaciers to discover. Then factor in seeing it all by helicopters, hiking or crusing. How about the possible wildlife viewing; there are bear viewing tours, marine wildlife with seals, otters and puffins to name just a few.

At Denali, you can see the “big five” plus more; wolves, moose, grizzly bears, Dall sheep and caribou. With 40,000 Bald Eagles you are sure to catch a sighting.

Try Salmon fishing, with plenty of opportunities to enjoy a salmon meal. Or, go on a polar bear expedition to the Alaskan Artic region from Anchorage. 

You can even book a flightseeing trip by Helicopter or private plane to see Denali, glaciers, volcanoes and bears.
