Experience wild Alaska and British Columbia with exclusive access

Explore some of the Pacific Northwest’s most wild and pristine regions on a 15-day adventure between Sitka, Alaska, and Seattle, Washington. By special invitation, discover a nearly lost First Nations culture in the remote, moss-draped archipelago of Haida Gwaii. Sail the Inside Passage of Alaska and British Columbia, rich with marine life, including whales and dolphins. Spend a full day among the towering glaciers and expansive wilderness of Glacier Bay National Park. Walk in silent old-growth forests, kayak in secluded coves, and search for foraging bears and soaring eagles in mist-shrouded fjords. 

  • With very special access, spend four days in Haida Gwaii, a UNESCO World Heritage site, learning from Haida interpreters about their nearly lost ancient culture and exploring these remote islands

  • Sail deep into fjords, narrow channels and hidden coves and bays, searching for humpback whales, dolphins, bears, and eagles

  • Kayak in Tracy Arm or Endicott Arm for an up-close view of calving glaciers, towering forests, and seals afloat on iridescent icebergs

  • In wild, roadless places, see spectacular fjords with cascading waterfalls and soaring old-growth forests of spruce and cedar

  • Explore the picturesque fishing village of Petersburg, and by special permit, spend a full day exploring Glacier Bay National Park
