Holiday Types and Experiences
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.

Some 51 million acres of national park, over 3 million lakes, 3,000 rivers and 6,640 miles of coastline, make this one of the best destinations in North America for wildlife spotting.
And with animal life in abundance, most Alaska wildlife holidays are likely to include close encounters with nature – grizzly and black bears, caribou, wolves, eagles and a variety of whales make this a wildlife-lovers paradise!
