custom touring in alaska

small ship cruise & wilderness adventure

Many cruises in Alaska are aboard large cruise liners.  However, for those who want to take the route less traveled through the Inside Passage, a small ship such as Wilderness Adventurer,with unique and flexible itineraries, able to dock in isolated bays, offering close sightings of bears, whales, bald eagles and sea birds, is a more exciting and more exclusive way to explore Alaska’s coast. 


  • Experience Juneau, Alaska’s capital city
  • Glacier viewing in Glacier Bay National Park
  • Fjord exploration
  • Wilderness hikes
  • Whales and wildlife watching
  • Kayak or skiff exploration

Then venture into the interior of Alaska, visiting Fairbanks, Alaska’s “Golden Heart”, take a coach and Luxury Dome Rail Trip to Denali National Park  with its free-roaming wildlife, for a Tundra Wilderness Experience deep in the remote heartland of this protected area. End your adventure in Anchorage.
