ALASKAN PORTS OF CALL
You’ll be moved by the tranquil charm of Alaska—whether you’re rock climbing in Skagway, admiring Native American artifacts in Ketchikan or mushing sled dogs in Juneau.
Hubbard Glacier, Alaska
Taking in the sheer size of Hubbard Glacier is a powerful and humbling experience. This 600-foot-tall marvel of nature measures approximately 76 miles long and 7 miles wide. Watch as humongous (sometimes as high as a 10-story building) blocks of ice break from the glacier and plunge into the bay.
Icy Strait Point, Alaska
Venture to this scenic destination rumored to have the best whale watching in the state! Once ashore, visitors can explore its beaches, nature trails, free museum, boardwalks and docks. Search for bears, ride the world’s largest zipline, bike, ATV, fish and learn about the local Native Tlingit culture. While you’re here, dine on fresh king crab or fresh halibut and chips on the deck of the old cannery docks.
With its rugged mountains, sweeping glaciers and lush rainforests, Juneau is a scenic wonderland everywhere you look. Visit the Mendenhall Glacier, an enormous ice-field which flows down a valley incline to the edge of a lake and has to be seen to be believed! Take the Mount Roberts Tramway to an observation deck approximately 2,000 feet above Juneau for an unforgettable bird’s eye view of the city. For those looking to shop, head to South Franklin Street—which parallels the dock—and the downtown area. You’ll find a myriad of boutiques and stores selling typical Alaskan wares like furs, Alaskan jewelry, baleen baskets, carved ivory, lacquered boxes and nesting dolls.
Experience a city renowned for its unspoiled natural beauty, abundant fishing and rich culture. With natural treasures and timeless sites, Ketchikan offers unique experiences steeped in Native Alaskan traditions. Ketchikan boasts the largest collection of original 19th-century totem poles in the world. Be sure to spend some time at one of the 3 totem pole parks in the area—each with majestic, multi-colored Tlingit and Haida totems amid a spectacular, rural setting.
Known as the legendary “Gateway to the Klondike” during the Gold Rush boom, Skagway is a sleepy town frozen in time. Discover this charming area that served as the setting of Jack London’s book, The Call of the Wild. A plethora of magnificent, albeit quaint, landmark buildings line the main thoroughfare in town. Broadway Street illustrates what life was like during Skagway’s heyday—when opportunity and riches were as easy to find as the gold that brought treasure-seekers from near and far.
