In Southeast Alaska is the largest national forest in the United States – home to grizzly bears, black bears, mountain goats, bald eagles and wolves. On our way to view Alaska’s massive glaciers, we enter some of the world’s deepest fjords to hike and kayak while other vessels’ guests stay shipside. In the still of the evening, watch bears ambling along wild shorelines. Everywhere in the swirling currents below, the world’s largest mammals, the great whales, forage in bountiful waters along the sheltered coastline. We meet Alaska and its wildlife at eye level for a vacation of a lifetime.
