Overview

See the majestic sights of Alaska by land and sea, as you embark on a 17-day adventure from Anchorage. You'll join a group of like-minded travellers, making your way by coach through Denali National Park, Fairbanks and Valdez, before hopping on board a Holland America cruise ship to sail from Anchorage to Vancouver.
