We sell Alaska by Land and by Sea.  Take your pick or combine the two. We   offer   many   ways   to   vacation   in Alaska.      Everybody   initially   thinks   of   cruise   ships   where   you   sail   the   inside   passage.   Once   you   begin   to   examine   the   destination   and   the   transportation,   the Alaska   Railroad also   makes   a   lot   of   sense.      We   also   have   escorted   tours   where   you   can   go   further   afield   by   train   and   motorcoach.      We   have   even   sold   custom   fly/drive   packages   where   clients   go   to   various   National   Parks   in Alaska while staying at nearby hotels or lodges.  Most of what we sell is combination land/sea for 11-14 days or Alaska Railroad.
Cruises Cruises   depart   from   both   Seattle   and   Vancouver   to   Alaska.      We sell   all   the   cruise   lines   that   depart   from   both   ports.      Many   of   the Seattle   cruises   are   round   trip   in   a   week.      Many   of   the Vancouver cruises   are   “northbound”   or   “southbound”.      In   Alaska,   ships port    at    either    Seward    or    Whittier    which    are    both    in    the Anchorage   area   but   about   an   hour   and   a   half   airport   transfer from the actual ports. Land and Sea Vacations Northbound   and   southbound   ships   can   be   combines   with   land tours   that   usually   run   3-7   nights   for   a   total   of   10   to   14   nights   on vacation.      Based   on   the   direction   of   the   ship,   the   land   tour   will either   be   “pre”   or   “post”   tours.      These   combinations   are   offered by   most   cruise   lines   with   a   train   segment   and   bus   transportation between   cities.      The   cruise   lines   offer   more   variety   than   before with   wilderness   lodges   as   well   as   traditional   areas   like   Denali.     They   do   offer   programs   for   the   shorter   vacations   that   have   a straight shot to Denali using the long days of summer in Alaska. Holland America Lines Celebrity Cruises Norwegian Cruises Royal Caribbean International Princess Cruise Lines Oceania Cruises Regent Seven Seas Cruises Crystal Cruises
Escorted Tours Land tours usually include at least one Alaska Railroad segment as they usally cover Anchorage, Denali and Fairbanks.  The short ones can be combined with cruises.  Longer ones can also include areas like Dawson and Whitehorse in the Yukon Territory of Canada or Valdez to sail into Prince William Sound.  Even though you will go further into the wilderness, these will provide full services like luggage handling and deluxe motorcoaches plus they will include more meals than other types of packages.  Additional Vendors that offer Alaska Tours: Tauck Tours Trafalgar Collette Globus Tours Insight Vacations Cosmos
Alaska Railroad We sell a lot of Alaska Railroad.  Both with and without cruises as some of our clients just want to fly up and ride the trains across Alaska.  We offer custom packages through the Alaska Railroad including lodges/hotels, sightseeing and all the same tours and amenities offered by the cruise lines.  Alaska Railroad has a Gold Service (most trains) which includes dome cars and a meal and drinks in a dining car with each train ride.  They also offer Adventure Class with regular train cars and rolling wilderness cafe’s that serve light fare.  Go where you want for as many days as you want between Fairbanks, Denali, Talkeetna, Seward (Kenai Fjords National Pakr) even Whittier and Portage.  They also have pre-set multi day adventure package itineraries.  We are familiar with Alaska Railroad, so we can get you a custom quote with airfare.    We do combine Alaska Railroad with cruise vacations that can be booked separately.  I would classify the Alaska Railroad packages as “hosted” as they are not fully  escorted but the train people work with hotels and attractions so somebody is always looking for you along the way. Our tip about Alaska Railroad: You will see more Alaska as the train rolls along through the countryside at a comfortable speed.

Some lines sail into Glacier Bay and some don’t.  Holland America puts US Park Service naturalists on the ship when they enter Glacier Bay.  Only some ships go to Skagway to experience the White Pass and Yukon Railroad. Pictured here is the Holland America Oosterdam.
