Best of Both Worlds

Holland America Line combines Alaska’s beauty by land and sea.
By Stacey Zable

No need to choose between a cruise or a land tour of The Last Frontier with Holland America Line offering 9- to 18-day Land+Sea Journeys that literally immerse you in the unparalleled world of Alaska. Holland America Line has been taking guests to Alaska for nearly 75 years. It offers the most sailings to Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve and is the only cruise line that combines Alaska with the Yukon Territory. The Denali Land+Sea Journey offers a stay of up to three nights near Denali National Park & Preserve. Explore even more of the Great Land by adding the epic Yukon on a Yukon+Denali Land+Sea Journey where you’ll seamlessly experience the Yukon’s wild frontier as well as Denali before or after your Alaska cruise.

Start or End with a Cruise

At the heart of your Alaska adventure is your Holland America Line voyage. Denali Land+Sea includes a 7-day Glacier Discovery Cruise with stops in Skagway, Juneau, and Ketchikan. Choices for Yukon+Denali Land+Sea Journeys include either the 7-day Glacier Discovery Cruise or the option to begin with a 3-day or end with a 4-day Inside Passage Cruise. Only Holland American Line offers a full-day of cruising and glacier watching at Glacier Bay National Park, which is included in most Land+Sea Journeys. Another highlight of the Land+Sea Journeys is the scenic and historic McKinley Explorer® luxury domed railcar trips traveling between Anchorage and Denali.

Stay at the McKinley Chalet Resort at Denali

Holland America Line’s 9- to 14-day Denali Land+Sea Journeys include an exclusive up to three-night stay at the McKinley Chalet Resort before or after an Alaska cruise. This magnificent property sits on 60 acres across the Nenana River from Denali National Park. Explore the park with such opportunities as fly-fishing, heli-hiking, whitewater rafting, photography workshops, and more. An all-day Tundra experience brings you into Denali’s majestic wilderness for the chance to see some or all of Alaska’s big five; be sure to keep an eye out for grizzly bears, caribou, Dall sheep, wolves, and moose. The six-million-acres of protected land in the park is also home to the tallest peak in North America at 20,310 feet and more than 160 species of birds, 39 mammals, and 750 species of vascular plants.

Add on the Wild of the Yukon

Choose the ultimate northern land adventure when you discover the natural beauty of Denali’s wilderness during a stay at the McKinley Chalet Resort along with the excitement of the Yukon on the 9- to 18-day Yukon+Denali Land+Sea Journeys. You’ll experience it all with your choice of a 3-, 4-, or 7-night Alaska cruise with the bonus during your land portion of a professional Journey Host providing an insider look while handling all the details. Get your spirit of adventure on while you retrace the path of the Klondike Gold Rush of 1898, ride the historic White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad from Skagway, and sail along the Yukon River past historic towns, wildlife, and towering pine trees on the Klondike Spirit paddlewheeler river tour.
