Alaska Trip Types and Experiences
We offer all types of holidays in Alaska, which can be tailor-made to suit your interests, time-frame and budget. Whether you prefer escorted small-group tours or free-roaming self-drives, wildlife encounters or independent exploration.
The vast American state of Alaska is six times the size of Britain and is home to some of the USA’s highest peaks, including Mount McKinley, the tallest mountain in North America. Often referred to as ‘The Wilderness State’, Alaska also boasts active volcanoes, lush rainforests, a remote Arctic frontier and an incredible 100,000 glaciers! Much of the country is well connected by road and also by the excellent Alaskan Railroad, though some locations, such as the capital city of Juneau and the remote communities along the Aleutian Islands, are accessible only by plane or boat. Wherever you wish to visit, we can help you choose the right mode of transport for your holiday.
Cruising The Inside Passage
A long-time favourite cruise destination, the Inside Passage is famed for its marine wildlife and spectacular icy scenery – Glacier Bay National Park is a key attraction, whilst the coastal city of Sitka offers a fascinating glimpse into Alaska’s culture and past. Our Alaska cruise holidays are based on smaller vessels offering up-close wildlife encounters, as well as mid-sized ships that are able to reach hidden corners inaccessible to larger cruise ships.
