How Will You Discover Alaska?

Experience the best of the Great Land on a Land+Sea Journey with Holland America Line.

When you visit Alaska, you’re stepping into a world where towering mountains and glaciers are a part of every landscape, a world where history breathes life into the present day, and a world where wildlife is wilder than any other place in the continent. Travelers visit the Last Frontier to see life from a new perspective, and Holland America Line offers the best possible way to experience it. With both cruises and cruise tours through Alaska, you can see the snowcapped peaks of Denali for yourself, as well as several incredible ports and views along the way. Here are just a few of our favorites.

Inside Passage

There are few experiences more breathtaking than watching a glacier plunge into the water right in front of you, and cruising through the Inside Passage allows you front-row access to one of nature’s most powerful displays. Widely considered one of the best cruising routes in the world, the waters of the Inside Passage feature stunning landscapes, arctic-blue glaciers, Misty Fjords National Monument and Alaska’s iconic wildlife. This expansive network of waterways encompasses many fascinating ports and Alaska cruise stops, allowing you to meet the people who call this gorgeous place home.

Tracy Arm Inlet

Sometimes the most impressive destinations are the ones you don’t expect – for instance, a temperate rainforest in one of the coldest places on Earth. As you cruise the emerald waters of this ice-carved fjord, you will cruise beneath cliffs that rise 4,000 feet above the sea. Feel the mist on your face as the vessel maneuvers almost directly under a plunging waterfall. The on-board naturalist will provide a wealth of information about the area, which naturalist John Muir called ‘one of the most dramatically stunning fjords of Southeast Alaska’, and there will be frequent stops for you to view and photograph wildlife, such as bald eagles, harbor seals, mountain goats and bears.

Denali National Park

A trip to the Last Frontier isn’t complete without a visit to Denali National Park, the shining jewel of Alaska’s interior. Holland America Line’s Alaska Land+Sea Journey cruise tours offer an immersive, one-of-a-kind experience by both land and sea, allowing you to cruise glacier-flanked waters and tour Denali National Park’s pristine wilderness. Stay at the McKinley Chalet Resort at the park’s entrance, and witness jaw-dropping scenery all around you. Denali itself is the continent’s highest peak, but the mountain isn’t the only reason to visit Denali National Park—there are miles of pristine rivers and tundra, plus caribou, moose, grizzlies, and wolves at its base.


Alaska delivers the type of "wow moments" that linger in memories forever.
