Cruises & Tours of all lengths and formats are available in Alaska, from a weeklong backcountry adventure to a leisurely trip in a motorcoach to experience the Alaska Highway. Rail tours stretch from tidewater in Southcentral Alaska to the heart of the state’s Interior region, visiting state and national parks along the way. Day and multi-day cruises offer a quick glance of Alaska’s coast or the opportunity to immerse yourself in the marine environment.
For those interested in splitting the difference between active adventure and relaxed pampering, Alaska’s adventure companies offer some of the best compromises. After a day of hiking, rafting or kayaking, guides set up camp and prepare dinner while guests sit back and take in the stunning scenery. Whatever your speed, Alaska has something to offer.
