Departing from Vancouver, Queen Elizabeth’s Alaska voyages invite you to immerse yourself in a world of skyscraper-tall glaciers and mirror-like waters, where each day offers you the freedom to step ashore somewhere new.
Perhaps your voyage will call in Ketchikan, with its colorful collection of totem poles or maybe Sitka, where 22 buildings have made the National Register of Historic Places. Then there’s Hubbard Glacier, an icy giant bathed in blue, the sheer scale of which will leave you breathless.
A call in Icy Strait Point, just outside the small village of Hoonah on Chichagof Island, invites you to join a whale watching expedition, test your nerve on an descent of the world’s largest zipline, or go bear spotting along the Spasski River Valley.
Haines, with its quirky hammer museum (yes, really) is a prime destination to kayak or, if you’d rather stay on dry land, you can stretch your legs on a mountain hike. You’ll also find a hub of outdoor activities to enjoy in the state’s capital, Juneau, where an excursion to Mendenhall Glacier is just one of many memorable experiences.
