Must Do’s On an Alaska Cruise
- Enjoy the views of the Inside Passage
The Inside Passage is the standard coastal route for oceangoing ships en route to Alaska. The vessels weave between Alaska’s coastline and a series of islands boasting fjords, wildlife-rich forests, magnificent mountains, and massive glaciers.
- Explore the Last Frontier by Rail
Enjoy the views of Alaska by train! The route will depend on the itinerary and cruise line, but be prepared to soak up 360-degree views as The Last Frontier zips by.
- Experience Denali
6-million acre National Park and Preserve is Denali, America’s highest peak. Often sighted in Denali National Park. They include moose, bear, Dall sheep, caribou, and wolves.
- Soak in Ketchikan
This funky, historic town is the perfect place to watch salmon migrate in the summer. Take advantage of the picturesque scenes on Creek Street, a boardwalk that runs along the east side of the Ketchikan Creek.
- Visit an Iditarod Dog Kennel
Several cruise lines can arrange private tours of Iditarod Dog Kennels, or even experience of riding a sled pulled by a team of huskies! Tours given by local guides give travelers an inside look at what everyday life in Alaska is like, in addition to the routines of the dogs and their trainers.
