Revel in pure wildness on an active adventure

Explore Alaska on an active, exciting expedition to see the region’s iconic wildlife and epic landscapes in the compact time frame of one work week. By special permission from the U.S. Forest Service, hike through forests of towering trees, kayak long routes deep into glacially carved fjords, and raft from an ancient Alaska native village—all with our nimble expedition ship as your moving base camp.

  • Kayak or paddleboard along rugged coastlines of Chichagof Island which harbors one of the highest concentrations of brown bears in the world

  • Hike through temperate rainforest on Baranof island, listening for bald eagles calling out from the towering spruce and hemlock trees

  • Explore Haines, the “adventure capital of Alaska,” via raft, bicycle, or hiking boot, and opt to soar over Glacier Bay National Park on a flightseeing tour.

  • Cruise by Zodiac and kayak among abundant sea lions and search for whales in the Inian Islands

  • Meet eagles at the Raptor Rehabilitation Center

  • Seamlessly combine the experience with our southern Wild Alaska Escape itinerary and double the sights, sightings, and wildness on this most active of expeditions

  • Whale-watch daily from the bow of our small ship, and witness breaching humpbacks and orcas on the hunt.
