Day 2

Talkeetna

Enjoy an early morning scenic ride to the authentic Alaskan town of Talkeetna aboard the Wilderness Express, our glass-domed traincars. Later board your deluxe motorcoach for a relaxing ride to one of Alaska’s most treasured landmarks, Denali. From 4:30 p.m., Denali is yours to discover. Book an optional land excursion with your Tour Director and soar over Denali, “The Great One” on a flightseeing plane, or raft down the Nenana River. Overnight at Denali Park Village.

 

Day 3

Denali

Begin your day with a guided experience in Denali National Park on the Denali Natural History Tour. Discover the beauty of taiga forests and gaze at miles of rolling tundra while looking for wildlife. In the afternoon, leave Denali for the picturesque return to Talkeetna aboard your deluxe motorcoach. From 5:30 p.m., Talkeetna is yours to discover. Stroll Main Street’s lively brew pubs and converted airstreams, serving namesake signature dishes. Take in breathtaking views of Denali and rub shoulders with the locals who keep the backcountry spirit of Alaska alive. Overnight at the Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge.

 

Day 4

Talkeetna

Leave Talkeetna behind as you board your deluxe motorcoach for the morning drive to Anchorage. Here you will have time to explore downtown before continuing to Seward. Along the way, stop at Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center where you will encounter Alaska’s famed wildlife up close as you observe animals indigenous to the area. In Seward, join the Millennium for your 7-night cruise to Vancouver.

 

Day 4

Seward, Alaska (EMBARK) ~ 8:00 PM

Edging the Kenai Peninsula and framed by the glacier-covered Kenai Mountains that run along its southeastern spine, Seward is a rustic port town whose grand terrain will leave you breathless. The pristine wilderness of the Kenai Peninsula is home to nesting seabirds, countless islands, wetlands, and breathtaking coastal views. And, as the gateway to the Kenai Fjords National Park, the Harding Icefield — an expanse of ice and snow created over 23,000 years ago — is easily within reach and culminates in 40 glaciers that dramatically calve into the sea. The throngs of wildlife that course below, and glide above the glacial waters, are legion. Pods of humpback whales are known to breach when hunting, seals and sea lions lounge on rocky outcroppings and bald eagles hover overhead. The rugged landscape suits Seward’s hardy locals well. Every July 4th, Seward’s runners race 1.5 miles up and down Mount Marathon. Starting at sea level, the race rises 3,000 feet in elevation over very steep terrain. Runners race over gullies, ice, and snow, using their hands to haul themselves to the finish line. And, when not racing up mountains, you can find stalwart locals at city watering holes and dining spots, where you can savor fresh Alaskan seafood, filleted and flayed straight from the ocean to your plate. Situated at a grand natural intersection where bays and fjords stretching south to the Pacific meet the crested wilderness — and connected to communities extending northwards via the famously scenic Seward Highway — Seward is emblematic of the wildly beautiful state that is Alaska.

 

Day 5

Hubbard Glacier (Scenic Cruising)

Enjoy incredible picture-perfect views from just about anywhere on the ship as our dedicated onboard naturalist narrates the experience and keeps an eye out for the whales, harbor seals, and otters that hunt and play in the waters of Yakutat Bay. With its dramatic and massive 7-mile-wide face, and ever-changing wall of ice, the Hubbard Glacier lives long in the memory of any visitor to Alaska.

 

Day 6

Juneau, Alaska ~ 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM

Here's your chance to take a glacial dogsled adventure in Alaska's capital, where cultured sophistication meets the ruggedness of the Last Frontier.

 

Day 7

Skagway, Alaska ~ 7:00 AM - 8:30 PM

 

The great Klondike Gold Rush lives on in Skagway's charming downtown of restored 19th-century buildings and its historic railway. From the vintage train, admire the mountains and see the 1898 trail that fortune seekers traveled on foot. The White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad runs vintage locomotives past the famously steep Chilkoot Trail and offers sweeping mountain views during its climb toward Canada.

 

Day 8

Icy Strait Point, Alaska ~ 6:30 AM - 3:00 PM

 

For thousands of years, the Tlingit Indians have called this place home. Located near the city of Hoonah, and home to a historic cannery, Icy Strait Point also offers travelers the chance to view wildlife like humpback whales, orcas, seals, eagles, and brown bears, or to explore monuments to the region's fishing heritage.

 

Day 9

Ketchikan, Alaska ~ 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM

 

You've never tasted salmon so fresh. Known as the 'Salmon Capital of the World', Ketchikan is also the ancestral home of the Tlingit people, who have carved the world's largest collection of totem poles. If you're up for an adventure, take a canoe and nature trail excursion through the rain forest or a wilderness exploration followed by a sumptuous crab feast you'll long remember.

 

Day 10

Inside Passage (Cruising)

 

You'll sail beyond the Inside Passage into the more protected Alaska Inside Passage. Home to diverse wildlife—orca, mountain goats, bald eagles, bears, puffins, sea otters and more—the complex labyrinth of fjords and bays are where whales and sea lions find refuge during the summer months. You'll never forget the sight of 40-ton whales hurling themselves into the air, almost completely escaping the water. If you're especially lucky, you could see them swimming together to create a bubble net, trapping and eating fish by the giant mouthful.

 

Day 11

Vancouver, British Columbia (DISEMBARK) ~ 7:00 AM

 

Among the world's most liveable cities - diverse, cultural, beautiful - this culinary capital treats you to fresh local seafood, farm-to-table produce, and authentic Asian flavors. West Coast architecture - modernism with a woodsy bent - emerged here. But while downtown shines with steel and glass, its epicenter is green Stanley Park, a 1,000-acre oasis of spectacular beaches, trails, and views. North of town, ride scenic Sea to Sky Highway along the coast and through the forest toward Whistler, 2,200 feet above sea level. On your way, behold lofty Shannon Falls and brave the heart-pounding Sky Pilot Suspension Bridge.
