If adventure is what you are looking for but you have limited time at the conclusion of your cruise you will get a taste of what Alaska has to offer with this 3-day program.

Explore the wilderness by foot, train, kayak, and crampon.  Hike through the Chugach National forest as you learn about the flora and fauna.  Travel into the mountains on the iconic Alaska Railroad, passing through glacier carved valleys.  Paddle amongst icebergs as you navigate kayaks to a glacier and experience crampons as you explore a glacier unseen by most.  This three day visit is packed with adventure.
