Alaska Cruise Tours - Alaskan Cruise Tour

What is an Alaska cruise tour anyway? Well, many Alaska visitors fly into Anchorage and explore Alaska by land then fly home. Others travel to Alaska by cruise ship and fly home immediately upon arrival, missing the vast majority of Alaska's spectacular scenery and attractions. A cruise tour combines an Alaska land tour with a seven day Gulf of Alaska cruise for a complete Alaska vacation experience of a lifetime.

Cruise tours are often referred to as northbound or southbound depending on the direction of the cruise, while a pre or post cruise land tour indicates whether you are touring Alaska by land before your cruise or after. Gulf of Alaska cruises travel between Seward or Whittier, Alaska and Vancouver, BC, and are 7 days in length. Land tours can range from 3 to 10 days, with a length of 5 to 7 days being the most popular. A typical northbound cruise tour would travel from Vancouver to Seward or Whittier during week one with ports such as Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan, and spectacular cruising in Glacier Bay, the Inside Passage, and Prince William Sound. Week two would be a post cruise land tour to popular destinations like Seward, Talkeetna, and Denali Park, with a return flight home from either Fairbanks or Anchorage. A southbound cruise tour would just be the reverse, with your flight from home to Fairbanks or Anchorage, a pre cruise land tour, followed by a cruise from Seward or Whittier to Vancouver. Travel on land can be by rental car, bus, Alaska Railroad or a combination of the three, and nearly all packages can be customized to your exact specifications. If you are looking for a fully escorted land tour, we have a specific escorted land tour that matches up with a cruise departure from Seward or Whittier. For more information see Alaska cruises page and our pre cruise or post cruise Alaska vacation packages.
