Discovering South-East Alaska
August 10 - 17, 2013
The inexorable forces of nature are on full display in Alaska — mountains eroded by the crushing force of massive glaciers, icebergs crowding cold, aquamarine seas, the cycles of plants and animals compressed into the scant weeks of an arctic summer.
Spend eight days navigating in luxury the waterways of the Inside passage aboard 66-passenger Admiralty Dream and witness wildlife up close from its kayaks and skiffs. Learn about Alaska’s culture and industry by exploring the Alaska State Museum, visiting a salmon hatchery, and participating in a crab population study. With skilled naturalists by your side, encounter its abundant wildlife, magnificent peaks and fjords, and ice-blue glaciers of unfathomable proportions — while learning about the traditions of Alaska’s ancient cultures.
