AUG 26 … Our group gathers for our flight to the Pacific Northwest and transfer to the airport.  Arriving in Seattle for one night, we transfer to our hotel and enjoy our Welcome Dinner.

AUG 27 … After breakfast a motorcoach meets us for the drive into Canada to the city of VANCOUVER in British Columbia. Here we board our cruise ship, the M/S NOORDAM,  part of Holland America’s 5 Star Fleet,  for an amazing 7 night cruise to Alaska.

AUG 28 … Your adventure is just beginning, as your ship cruises through the INSIDE PASSAGE, some areas very narrow and others where it is difficult to see land.  

AUG 29 … Our fun continues as we cruise into the “First City” of Alaska, KETCHIKAN.  This picturesque city is built on piles out over the water and clings to the slopes of Deer Mountain. There is plenty of native culture to enjoy here in Alaska’s southeastern city, as well as great shopping.

AUG 30 … JUNEAU is the isolated capital of Alaska, not accessible by land, and a major destination for sea planes.  You may tour this interesting city, explore the shops in town, or even take a float trip out to the Mendenhall Glacier.  You may enjoy sitting on deck as the sea planes land on the water all around you.

AUG 31   Our port of call today is the small, but fascinating town of SKAGWAY, the gateway to the Yukon Gold Rush.  Step back in time as you walk the streets of the village where once throngs of miners landed to begin their journey to fulfill their dreams of riches and treasure. You definitely should take the optional excursion on the White Pass Railway, following the trail of fortune hunters on their way to the Yukon.

SEP 1 ... This day should be one of the top highlights of your trip as your ship glides into spectacular GLACIER BAY, one of the great natural wonders of the world, with towering mountains of ice meeting the frigid waters of this beautiful setting. Watch for the thunderous roar of an iceberg “calving” in these massive rivers of ice.

SEP  2 … Today is a relaxing day as you can sleep in, enjoy the activities aboard the ship, and dine in style as we spend this day at sea cruising for the Alaska port of Seward.

SEP  3 … This morning we arrive in Seward to end this wonderful cruise experience. We now board the Cruise Train for the ride along Turnagain Arm on the scenic Coastal Classic Route, with its wondrous mountains and rivers of ice. You will continuel to ANCHORAGE for an overnight.

SEP 4 … Today we board the McKinley Explorer luxury train for the ride to DENALI. Lunch will be included on the train. Late Afternoon arrival and you will check into our hotel for a 2 night stay in this spectacular location.

SEP 5 … A morning adventure is yours as the group will be escorted on a TUNDRA WILDERNESS Tour of the National Park and a chance to view MT MCKINLEY, the tallest peak in North America. Enjoy looking for moose, bear, mountain sheep and elk on this most interesting adventure. 

SEP 6 ... Today we board a deluxe motorcoach for the drive to FAIRBANKS with picture stops along the way. The afternoon features a delightful cruise aboard the sternwheeler Discovery, with lunch included on board. You will visit a native village, meet an Iditarod champion’s sled dogs, and watch a bush-pilot demonstration. Later, you will check into our hotel for a night stay in this frontier style location in the interior of Alaska. 

SEP 7 … This morning we fly home after a wonderful travel experience in our beautiful 49th state. Depending on the schedule, we could arrive on the next day.
