Immerse Yourself in Alaska with Holland America Line

From sailing between massive glaciers, to exploring Alaska’s most charming seaside towns, Holland America Line is sure to let you fully experience Alaska the best way they know how – by land and by sea. Breathe in the chilling air at Glacier Bay National Park, witness mesmerizing wildlife in Denali National Park, and tread through the pristine Yukon Territory.

Denali National Park – A Postcard Worthy Experience

Take in the rustic charm of Denali National Park with a Denali Land + Sea Journey.  If it is adventure that you seek, take the Tundra Wilderness Tour to witness Alaska’s Big Five – grizzlies, caribou, Dall sheep, wolves, and moose – right by Denali Mountain.  Or, embark on a breathtaking excursion by zipping through pristine tree tops, river rafting down untamed streams, and taking off on a flightseeing trip to experience an unparalleled panorama of Alaska.

Wind down for the day as you stay at Holland America’s very own McKinley Chalet, a 60-acre private resort, and soak in the breathtaking scenery or hang out at the exclusive entertainment hub in Denali Square where you can gather around the fire pit and reminisce the day’s adventures.  Wake up the next day and start the adventure all over again by exploring whimsical historic seaside towns like Denali, where there is nothing short of countless awe-inspiring moments waiting for you.

Glaciers and At Sea Adventures

With mid-sized ships to get to you closer to the towering glaciers of Alaska, it’s no doubt that Holland America’s Alaska cruises are the #1 choice for Alaskan adventures.  Witness a place with more active tidewater glaciers than any other place in the world at Glacier Bay National Park, and marvel as the mountains of ice break and crash into the sea (also known as the sound of “white thunder”), while feeling the fresh ice-cold alpine air in your face.  It’s a breath-taking experience that will surely awaken your senses. 

Perhaps you’d like to turn it up a notch and take a helicopter ride in Juneau to catch an eagle’s eye view of the incredible Mendenhall Glacier, or get a more intimate experience by feeling the crunch of the snow and ice beneath your feet on a glacier stroll.  Between taking in the majesty of the epic glaciers, step out onto the expansive open wraparound deck to find massive whales splash into the sea, catch soaring eagles up close, and see playful sea otters enjoying their natural habitat.  Whatever you’re looking for in your search of wanderlust, you’ll always find a reason to be in awe of Alaska.

Make Your Way Through the Historic Yukon

Top off your adventure by navigating through the territories of the Yukon – a place where nature is unspoiled, towns are historical, and the wildlife is abundant.  Discover Dawson City by taking a time capsule back to the gold rush days and shop for lustrous gold nuggets, or take a quiet river cruise on Yukon’s only operating paddlewheeler – the Klondike Spirit.  Your Journey Host will tell you all the charming secrets of the Yukon, like how to gold pan, or spot certain captivating wildlife like elks.  The Yukon is calming and exhilarating all at once – an experience you’ll have to see for yourself to believe!
