Alaska Fjords & Glaciers

This 8-day Alaska Fjords & Glaciers small ship cruise features glaciers, fjord cliffs, deep valleys, whales, Tlingit culture and Alaska’s backcountry. Dawes Glacier gleams, the hanging waterfalls of verdant Tongass National Forest mystify, towering fjord cliffs give perspective and one of Alaska’s oldest towns comes alive with a guided tour on its history and culture. Activities for all levels enable up-close exploration of “The Yosemite of the North,” Misty Fjords National Monument. 

Skiff rides, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding and hiking all present opportunities to explore the natural world, with options suited to varying activity levels. Guides keep watch to help spot harbor seals and their pups, shore birds, black bears, mink, eagles, orca, porpoises, seals, otters, Sitka deer and mountain goats along Tracy Arm, Fords Terror, Stephens Passage, Thomas Bay, Wrangell and Behm Canal.

The main 8-day Alaska Fjords & Glaciers cruise begins in Juneau and ends in Ketchikan. There is also a reverse itinerary that begins in Ketichikan and ends in Juneau. Board the 74-guest Wilderness Explorer for the exciting opportunity to view massive glaciers and fjords, take in native culture and experience the Alaskan wilderness.

Day 1
Embark Juneau, Alaska

Arrive in Juneau and be met with a warm welcome. Enjoy some time to take in the city after checking in at the hospitality area. After boarding, grab a glass of bubbly while the ship pushes off the dock and sets sail for the Endicott Arm wilderness.

Day 2
Endicott Arm or Tracy Arm

Take an early peek out the window. Fjord cliffs reach skyward amongst floating ice and deep u-shaped valleys. Cruise past harbor seals and their pups lounging on chunks of ice. At the end of Endicott, the blue face of Dawes Glacier is stories high. And in classic fjord form, Tracy Arm delivers with the cotton candy blue Twin Sawyers glacier of its furthest reaches. Tides permitting, the skiff driver knows its character and guides the group along. It’s a mashup of towering walls, temperamental currents, the coastal mountains and many waterfalls. Look for mountain goats that show off fancy foot work on the cliffs.

Day 3
Stephens Passage

Perhaps yoga stretches on deck jump start the day. Humpback and orca are frequent visitors of this Southeast passage; a misty spout is a sure sign they’re in the neighborhood. The captain navigates Stephens Passage to Port Houghton. The guide team has prepared a boot-sucking, paddle-smacking day of adventure. The routes are all picked out, with various options. Slip off the kayak launch and take it slow spotting sea stars and shore birds. Hard chargers take a long wild paddle to the salt chuck at the back of the inlet. Alternately, hike into the Tongass, a landscape of hanging waterfalls and shades of green.

Day 4
Thomas Bay & Wrangell Narrows

This is the backcountry of Alaska’s wilderness, including glacial landscapes marked by moraines, muskegs and mud. This playground offers many options today. Kayak and skiff in water almost clear as glass. The mirror image of fjord walls plays on the water’s surface. Hike through the outwash of Baird Glacier, or keep it green tromping through a grassy meadow into the forest. Later, pass by the fishing town of Petersburg and wind into the Wrangell Narrows. Abundant bright red and green navigation lights guide the way. It’s “Christmas Tree Lane,” of course.

Day 5
Wrangell

Native culture and wildlife have gotten along just fine for centuries. Wrangell is one of the oldest towns in Alaska. It’s also the only one ever governed by four nations. The Tlingit cultures have deep roots here. Local islanders come aboard this morning with a presentation that brings their stories and legends to life. Venture into town for a view of recently carved totem poles at Kiksetti Totem Park. See how many totems can be counted on each pole. Step inside famed Chief Shakes Tribal House and feel the history in this historic community house.

Day 6
Behm Canal

Wildlife abounds: black bears, mink, eagles. In Behm Canal, it’s all remote waterways and the isolated Tongass National Forest. On Cleveland Peninsula, the expedition team leads a low-elevation hike with wide-stretching views. Good opportunities for panoramic shots of Southeast Alaska. In the water, look for orca, porpoises, seals and otters while on a guided paddle in tiny, deserted waterways that feed into Behm Canal.

Day 7
Misty Fjords National Monument

Its affectionate nickname, “The Yosemite of the North,” is deserved. This is a place that completely overcomes travelers. Feel the beauty, peace and sense of place. Misty Fjords National Monument represents nearly every ecosystem found in Southeast Alaska; that alone is a lot to consider. Appreciate the sheer 3,000 foot cliffs and glacial valleys filled with sea water. Sea birds, brown and black bears, mountain goats and Sitka black-tailed deer all find safe haven here. Kayak in Walker Cove or Rudyerd Bay and find it’s just as easy to paddle and go, as it is to sit and float and take it all in. Alternately, skiff to the base of a waterfall for a fjord-released shower. It’s an amazing wrap to the week. The captain joins for a farewell dinner tonight. Celebrate and reminisce about this Alaskan journey with a photo journal by the crew.
