North America Alaska Cruise

Alaska Fjords & Glaciers

This 8-day Alaska Fjords & Glaciers small ship cruise features glaciers, fjord cliffs, deep valleys, whales and Alaska’s backcountry. Dawes Glacier gleams, the hanging waterfalls of verdant Tongass National Forest mystify, towering fjord cliffs give perspective and full days are spent choosing your own adventure via hikes, kayaks, stand-up paddleboard excursions, skiff rides and more. Activities for all levels enable up-close exploration of “The Yosemite of the North,” Misty Fjords National Monument. 

Activity options suited to varying ages and activity levels make this an ideal option among our Alaska family cruises. Guides keep watch to help spot harbor seals and their pups, shore birds, black bears, mink, eagles, orca, porpoises, seals, otters, Sitka deer and mountain goats along Tracy Arm, Fords Terror, Frederick Sound, Thomas Bay, the Blashkee Islands and Behm Canal.

The main 8-day Alaska Fjords & Glaciers cruise begins in Juneau and ends in Ketchikan. There is also a reverse itinerary that begins in Ketichikan and ends in Juneau.
