Itinerary

Day 1 : Seward

-- - 7:00 pm

The city of Seward is located in southern coast Alaska in Kenai Peninsula Borough at the top of the Resurrection Bay. The city of Seward was founded back in 1902 as the end of the Alaska Rail Road which was built 1915-1923. The name of Seward was derived by Abraham Lincoln's secretary of state, who arbitrated the purchase of Alaska from Russia in 1867. The city of Seward suffered from 90% of the waterfront industry due to an earthquake in 1964. Due to this earthquake, six feet of the shoreline dropped along with the harbor and fuel docks.

Day 2 : Hubbard Glacier(Cruising)

2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Seventy-five miles long and covering over 1,350 square miles in area, Hubbard Glacier is the largest tidewater glacier in North America. It is also one of the most impressive, a 500-foot wall of ice rising sheer and jagged from the ocean. You may hear the rumble and see the monumental splash as the glacier breaks off in great ice chunks, known as "calves."

Day 3 : Juneau

10:00 am - 11:00 pm

Alaska's capital can't be reached by road. You fly or sail here to enjoy its greeting of dockside flags and flowers. It is surprisingly urban and cultured for being so remote. Visit the museum for insights into Inuit culture and crafts. Drive up to Mendenhall, the only glacier inside city limits! Or get an aerial view from a helicopter. Fish for silver salmon, or just enjoy some off the grill--then kick back at the Red Dog Saloon.

Day 4 : Haines

8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Alaska's heritage comes alive in the handcrafted artistry of the Tlingit (pronounced "Klink-it") Indians and in the lively performances of the Chilkat Dancers, with their brightly painted tribal masks. Take a walking tour of Haines and get a glimpse of the town's gold-rush history in local museums. You can visit the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve-Haines boasts the world's largest concentration of the magnificent birds, drawn to the area by the salmon-rich waters. Other shore excursions include a boat trip on Lake Chilkoot and a glacier country flightseeing trip.

Day 5 : Sitka

9:00 am - 4:00 pm

When Alaska belonged to Russia, Sitka was the capital and center for its fur trading empire. Today, Sitka's Russian heritage and magnificent setting make it an enchanting destination. The city features a harbor studded with islands, a backdrop of mountains, and spectacular Mt. Edgecumbe, a volcano often compared to Japan's Mt. Fuji. Sitka displays its past in such attractions as St. Michael's Cathedral with its striking onion-shaped dome, the Russian Blockhouse, and world famous New Archangel Dancers. Visit the Historic Park, with a ruined Indian fort where Tlingit Indians battled Russian settlers in 1804.

Day 6 : Wrangell

7:00 am - 2:00 pm

The city of Wrangell is located at the most southeastern point of Alaska surrounded by the Eastern Passage, Sumner Strait, Zimovia Strait, and the Stikine Strait. The city has had an elaborate history since the beginning of its days. Wrangell is the only city in the U.S. to be governed by both Russians and British. The city has maintained its rough atmosphere from being a fur-trading point for the Russians and now the city acquires an old-fashioned look with saloons and salmon and shrimp processing plants.

Day 7 : Inside Passage(Cruising)

-- - --

Protected from the open sea by forested isles, sheltered from the windy mainland by the tallest coastal mountains in the world, this tranquil 1,000-mile waterway winds from British Columbia to Alaska's Gulf. The deep, calm waters of the passage meander between dense pine forests where wild game and soaring eagles abound, with occasional rustic towns along the way.

Day 8 : Vancouver

7:30 am - --

In Vancouver, you're never out of sight of towering peaks--or of the sea. It is a prosperous city adorned with flowers lining the streets and lush greenery like Stanley Park. Museums offer fine collections of the dramatic Northwest native arts. Vancouver's Chinatown is the second-largest in the world. The waterfront Gastown district recalls the city's colorful past as a premier Pacific port since the days of the Clipper ships.
