An Alaska Cruisetour combines the best of sea and land, offering a land tour along with a cruise. It’s a must for adventurers keen on further exploration inland. These experiences typically begin before your cruise on Southbound cruises and after your cruise on Northbound cruises. Unlike shore excursions that last several hours, the land portion of a cruisetour is typical days in length giving you the opportunity to explore. Accommodation and travel on land is provided by the cruise lines as many own their own trains and lodges.
Depending on your itinerary, you might get into the heart of Glacier Bay and experience serenity in the solitudes of the mountains, then learn of the gold rush in Fairbanks, and later encounter the tallest peak in North America with a visit to Mt. McKinley.
Also, wildlife is abundant in Alaska’s interior, so during your tour, you’ll likely see moose, caribou, bears, wolves, and maybe even dall sheep!
Lasting three to eight nights, the land tour portion of your Alaska cruisetour can be either before or after your cruise and includes hotel accommodations and transportation to inclusive activities. Optional excursions include dog sledding, Native art tours, jet boat adventures, sport fishing, helicopter tours and much more!
Cruisetours and land tours are extensions added either before or after a cruise that offer guests a more in-depth experience of mainland Alaska and Canada. Celebrity, Princess, Holland America and Royal Caribbean offer the most extensive variety of add-on land extensions/tours.
