Why An Alaskan Adventure Cruise Will Give You Memories Overload!

Aug 17, 2007
Alaska amazingly holds some fears for many and I guess the fear of the unknown has something to do with this however, what better way than to face those fears by hopping on board a ship and getting immersed in all it has to offer with an adventure cruise.

Long time Alaskan cruise enthusiasts have been discovering the magical qualities this vast wilderness has to offer over and over again and it's one of the few places left in the world where history has been relatively left untouched.

The Adventure Cruise Of A Lifetime

One of the most enduring and life changing experiences you'll have is the Harriman's Wake tour. Packages of up to 25 days are available as you'll be transported back into time and retrace the footsteps of one of Alaska's most famous pioneers. From Vancouver B.C. to Nome, Alaska, it's an expedition of over 3500 miles and by the end of it, you'll understand why Alaska is regarded as one of the truly great areas on the planet.

You may prefer the shorter 14-16 day trip exploring Alaska's Fjords and Glaciers. Untouched wilderness areas such as Kayak Island can be explored on smaller size boats and you'll have the opportunity to immerse yourself in one of the few places on earth untouched by human development, Prince William Sound. It's not just marine life you'll see first hand but land mammals as well. The longer Harriman's Wake package will set you back close to $15,000 while the shorter two week trips will be half that but well worth the expense.

Did You Know?

Alaska's Inside Passage is a must see for adventure cruise enthusiasts. It contains some of the world's most pristine landscape and is usually accessible only by smaller vessels.

Then there's the trip along the amazing coastline between Vancouver and Anchorage. It's a long trip and along the way you'll get to see all of the Inside Passage from British Columbia, all the way to the Alaskan Gulf Coast. Adventure cruise specialists include land excursions as part of the packages available and you'll experience some of the Denali National Park and spend one or two nights in the midst of the wilderness in fabulous lodges.

Glaciers despite there enormity and mystery hold a magic fascination for many people. On an Alaskan adventure cruise, you have every opportunity to get close up and personal with the mighty glaciers. Shorter four day excursions from Juneau take you right into the hight of Glacier Bay. Not only will you get a close hand look at one of nature's most awe-inspiring structures but the marine life there to greet you will have you snapping away vigorously on your camera.

Adventure Cruise Prices

These can vary depending on the style and level of package you choose. On the bigger cruise liners, prices start at around $3000 but this is can be higher or lower depending on the length of the cruise and time of the year. For smaller charter operators, you'll need to contact them for an estimate as these adventure cruises can vary. Tailor-made options are also available to vacationers and these are a great way to see and do what you want particularly if time is a factor.
