Inside Passage Sojourn
The 10-day Inside Passage Sojourn Alaska cruise combines easy wilderness cruising with visits to Alaska’s popular ports and authentic Tlingit villages. The 40-guest Alaskan Dream is one of the fastest small cruise ships in Alaska, enabling guests to spend less time navigating and more time watching wildlife, viewing glaciers and visiting Alaskan communities. The 76-guest Chichagof Dream features spacious common areas and cabins that are configurable for families. Operated by an Alaskan family-owned company, the Inside Passage Sojourn has a focus on Alaska’s nature, history and First Nations culture.
The Inside Passage Sojourn features a number of included activities designed to bring travelers into intimate contact with Alaska’s natural and cultural heritage. In Juneau, appreciate opportunities to visit the Juneau-Douglas City Museum, Alaska State Capitol or take in the spectacular panoramic views in the Mount Roberts Tram. In Glacier Bay National Park, enjoy a tour with a Native Huna Tlingit interpretive naturalist on board. In Tracy Arm-Ford’s Terror Wilderness, take in the wilderness that John Muir called “a wild, unfinished Yosemite.”
Spend time relaxing at the exclusive Orca Point Lodge, viewing petroglyphs in Wrangell or taking in the glistening waterfalls and enormous glaciers. In Kasaan, visit the only remaining Haida longhouse in Alaska. Round out the trip by being immersed in the extraordinary history, art and cultural traditions of the Metlakatla Indian Community on Annette Island, including a visit to a traditional Tsmishian longhouse and a ceremonial dance performance.
The Inside Passage Sojourn is perfect for travelers seeking an easy cruising adventure with a focus on up-close exploration and authentic native culture. The number of ports visited and wilderness experienced over the course of this 10-day itinerary is impressive. The Alaskan Dream or Chichagof Dream departs from Sitka southbound to Ketchikan, or in reverse from Ketchikan up to Sitka.
