Day 1 Juneau, Alaska / Mendenhall Glacier
Arrive a day before your cruise begins to maximize your time exploring Juneau and viewing the breathtaking Mendenhall Glacier, one of the most beautiful glaciers in North America. Downtown, enjoy Juneau’s unique shops and native heritage sites. Forested islands, quiet coves, and rugged coastal mountain ranges greet you as soon as you leave the dock.
Day 2 Skagway, Alaska
Located at the northernmost point of the Inside Passage, Skagway was central to the Klondike Gold Rush of 1897. Known as the “Gateway to the Yukon,” the restored town is true to its past with vintage streetcars reminiscent of the old frontier and gold-rush-era buildings, now preserved as part of the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park. Vintage locomotives from The White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad continue to run past the iconic Chilkoot trail, offering sweeping mountain views on the way up to Canada.
Day 3 Haines, Alaska
Bald eagles are among the most populous of over 260 species of birds in Chilkat Valley. Our onboard expert and a local guide will take you through the valley describing the different species along the way. Take advantage of the variety of activities available in Haines, including a guided wildlife expedition or a private kayaking tour on Chilkoot Lake.
Day 4 Glacier Bay, Alaska
Covering 3.3 million acres of dynamic topography, Glacier Bay is the world’s largest biosphere, comprised of massive glaciers, temperate rainforest, and snow-capped mountain peaks. American Cruise Lines is one of a few cruise lines allowed privileged access into this natural wonder. Immerse yourself in its majesty as you enjoy spectacular views and breathtaking moments. From the comfort of your private balcony, witness the native wildlife, including seals, whales, eagles, bear, and more.
Day 5 Cruising the Inside Passage & Frederick Sound
Spend the day cruising the Frederick Sound and Inside Passage. Surrounded by majestic snow-covered mountains, the glacier-fed waters of the Frederick Sound are abundant with krill and herring, making it one of the world’s premier locations to observe humpback whales. Thousands migrate here to feed on the super nutrient-rich waters, as do orcas, sea lions, porpoise, and harbor seals. Along the shoreline, you may also spot black and brown bears as well as Sitka black-tailed deer.
Day 6 Petersburg, Alaska
Founded more than 100 years ago by Norwegian fishermen, Petersburg is a thriving fishing community that maintains its strong Norwegian heritage and continues to make its living from the sea. Located on Frederick Sound near the summer feeding grounds of hundreds of humpback whales, this authentic Alaskan town is surrounded by breathtaking wilderness. Explore its beautiful seaport, charter a fishing boat for the afternoon, or learn about the area’s rich history at the Clausen Museum.
Day 7 Tracy Arm, Alaska/Sawyer Glacier
Fifty miles southeast of Juneau is Tracy Arm, a long, narrow fjord leading to the mile-wide South Sawyer Glacier. Witness seals lounging on small ice floes, as you sail under the 1,500-foot-high vertical cliffs of Tracy Arm surrounded by the magnificent sight of hundreds of waterfalls cascading down its towering sides.
Indulge yourself at our one-of-a-kind Hot Chocolate Bar on the sun deck, as our onboard naturalist provides expert commentary on this natural wonder. There is a sense of excitement as you anticipate the next waterfall, mountain goat, or bear, on your way to the crystal blue glacier.
Day 8 Juneau, Alaska
On your return to Juneau, spend some time exploring the impressive collection of museums, shops, and attractions in the heart of Alaska’s capital.
