Explore the best of Alaska’s wild side by land and sea on a 7-night cruise followed by majestic mountain adventures. Begin in Vancouver with a spectacular welcome dinner at the Observatory atop Grouse Mountain. Board the Majestic Princess® and journey up the coast with stops in Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay National Park and College Fjord. From Whittier, begin your equally scenic land excursions in the legendary salmon-rich Copper River Valley. Venture off the beaten path on your way to Denali National Park and see glaciers, icefields and volcanos. Take a natural history tour, watch for Denali’s “Big Five”: bears, moose, caribou, wolves and Dall sheep – and, of course, astonishing views of the highest mountain peak in North America.
