Helpful Tips To Know Before You Go

  • Anywhere you'll visit in Alaska will use US$, so make sure to plan accordingly.
  • Alaska is a beautiful place, but the weather can quickly change from warm and sunny to damp and chilly, so be sure to pack layers and water-resistant clothing so you'll keep cosy and comfortable no matter where you're exploring.
  • If you're looking forward to certain activities or experiences on-shore, please be sure to book them ahead of time to avoid disappointment. These can be extremely popular and you won't want to miss out.
  • Due to Alaska's location in the Arctic Circle, the sunset and sunrise times can be very unusual depending on the time of year. Summer is Alaska's most popular season, boasting the 'midnight sun'.
  • Other activities and opportunities depend on the season as well. If you want to see whales during your cruise, the best chances for this are in the summer months, from April to September. 
  • Travel in September and there's a chance you will get a glimpse of the northern lights if you're on a cruise that voyages north.

Things To Do

  • Explore underground mines in Juneau. Learn the history of the gold rush that took place here, take a unique underground tour of the place where workers once pulled riches from the earth, then try your luck at panning for your own gold.
  • Visit Ketchikan's totem poles. Originally carved to honour lineage, history, important events and persons, these totem poles stand tall in many areas across the city. Visit the Totem Bight State National Park or others to view these totem poles restored and re-carved.
  • Tour Denali national park as part of an inland extension on your cruise. An extremely popular destination in Alaska, this comprises an incredible expanse of stunning scenery and gorgeous vistas. Behold the peak of Denali mountain itself, and you'll know why the native people here named it Denali – 'the Great One'.
  • Stop off at Glacier Bay National Park. This bay is only accessible by boat or plane, and you won't want to miss out on the incredible sights here. Whether you wish to spend time kayaking around the icy waters or visiting the Huna Tribal House, there's so much to see.

Cruise & Rail Packages

Anyone interested in cruises in Alaska is sure to be intrigued by the unique train journeys you can experience as part of the holiday. The Rocky Mountaineer trains provide a total of four routes throughout the peerless beauty of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, coursing through dense chilly rainforest, towering mountain vistas, breathtaking waterfalls and rivers, and so much more. Some of the most stunning sights in the region are only accessible by this rail service, and the enormous train windows will make sure you have the best possible views as you glide by. Better yet: while on-board the train, you'll be treated to delightful dining, whether you're on a morning or evening route.

Or perhaps experience the thrill of a genuine gold-rush era railroad, riding the rails from Skagway into the Yukon's heart. The White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad offers various trips that showcase glacial rivers, waterfalls, and gorges, immersing you in the untamed essence of Alaska. Journeying on this authentic train feels like stepping back in time as you ascend 3,000 feet, passing picturesque vistas and aptly-named landmarks like Inspiration Point and Dead Horse Gulch. Eventually, you'll reach the headwaters of the renowned Yukon River, granting you a glimpse of its origins. This remarkable adventure embraces Alaska's wild beauty while evoking the spirit of the gold rush era.
