An Introduction to Alaska

If you would like a short introduction to Alaska by land, before or after your cruise, then consider spending a few additional days here. An extra 2 to 3 days is the perfect amount of time to visit a smaller town or two, away from the cruise crowds. Or consider using that time to thoroughly explore your port of embarkation.

Highlighted below are exclusive land tours for guests with a smaller time frame. Please feel free to explore these pre or post-cruise tours, or use our Custom Proposal Form to let us know how we can help provide a great start or finish to your Alaskan cruise.
