One of the last frontiers, getting to and around Alaska by land can be daunting, but it’s a (sea) breeze on a dedicated cruise to this icy region in the Arctic Circle. The largest US state is also the most remote and coldest, with plenty of natural wonders and amazing wildlife to feast your eyes on, not to mention getting amongst it all on an adrenalin-fuelled Alaskan adventure.
Lying on the Arctic Circle, you can see the awe-inspiring Northern Lights in full effect in Alaska or spy moose and bears in the forests, circling bald eagles and migrating humpback whales. You’ll pass glaciers, pristine scenic sights and plenty of historic ports and experience jaw-dropping views on a cruise with your choice of itinerary from heaps of well-known cruise lines.
Cruises to Alaska generally depart from ports like Vancouver in Canada or Seattle in the US on the West Coast of North America, however some routes will also originate in Alaska at Seward or Whittier for a short 4-night cruise up to an epic 7-night cruise. With cheap cruise packages to Alaska, the all-inclusive prices onboard will mean more money for you to spend on exploring wild Alaska.
