Itinerary

Day 1 : Vancouver

-- - 5:00 PM

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.

Day 2 : 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 3 : Sitka

9:00 AM - 6:00 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 4 : Juneau

7:00 AM - 9:00 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 5 : Skagway

7:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Skagway was born during the great Alaska gold rush. Those were the days when Skagway had 80 saloons and was known as "the roughest town on earth." The city's rip-roaring past will come alive when you walk down Broadway, a main street so authentic it is part of the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park! Special shore excursions explore Skagway's fascinating history. Take a train up to White Pass and follow the old path to gold and glory in the Yukon, or take a scenic flight to view the amazing wonders of Glacier Bay National Park.

Day 5 : Haines

7:00 PM - 11:30 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.
