Wildlife and Frontiers of Alaska

July 26 – Aug. 6, 2019

Details

Stand in awe of massive glaciers and all-enveloping scenery as you cruise the Alaskan coast aboard Regatta.

Explore the astounding glaciers, native traditions, and awe-inspiring scenery on this cruise up and down the Alaskan and Canadian Pacific coast. Embark on the Regatta in Seattle and sail up the Inside Passage; a stunning waterway edged by verdant forests, mountains, and glaciers; and dotted with countless islands. Journey to Ketchikan, and explore the town’s rustic boardwalk or the glacially carved cliffs of Misty Fjords National Monument, on your way to Alaska’s capital city, Juneau. From authentic totems to upscale shopping, Juneau is a picturesque blend of the historical and the contemporary. Spend a day sailing in the shadow of the majestic Hubbard Glacier, and visit Icy Strait Point known for its harmonious Native Tlingit village of Hoonah and their restored 1912 salmon cannery. Delve into Skagway’s gold-rush heritage and catch Gold Fever in the famed Klondike fields. Immerse yourself in native cultures in Sitka. Perched on the edge of Canada’s wilderness, Prince Rupert, legendary for its sport fishing and wildlife viewing, is a bridge between civilization and the natural world. Finally, cruise the open blue waters of the Outside Passage to Victoria, Western Canada’s oldest city, before disembarking the Regatta in Vancouver.
