Alaska's Inside Passage

Northbound



Tour Description:

Cruise through Alaska's legendary Inside Passage aboard Silversea's Silver Muse, surrounded by some of the most dramatic and wildlife-rich scenery on Earth; a perfect combination of natural and cultural history...

Be at one with nature as you cruise the Inside Passage, surrounded by some of the most dramatic and wildlife-rich scenery on Earth – a cruise that is a perfect combination of natural and cultural history. Snow-crowned mountains, glacier-carved fjords, and lush green rainforests contribute to the feeling of being both uplifted and humbled by larger-than-life wilderness as far as the eye can see. There is always the possibility for wildlife spotting – humpback whales, eagles, orcas, harbour seals – and perhaps puffins, sea otters, the ever-elusive bears or the ever-moving salmon. Life under the sea reigns supreme while on the sea, fjords strewn with glacier chunks appear in shades of blue and white. When you cruise through the Inside Passage, you'll soon understand why Alaska's state flower is the forget-me-not – because once experienced, this majestic state and its unique treasure trove of wildlife, landscapes, and rich multicultural heritage are truly unforgettable. Travel through awe-inspiring ice-capped waters and enjoy a choice of shore excursions on land, all included, to discover Alaska your way. Kayak to Eagle Island – take a scenic rail journey and streetcar tour – meet both musher and dogs on a sled dog experience – go on a wilderness safari in Glacier Point by boat, canoe, and a one-mile hike – explore a Gold Rush city to glean its historic past, a traditional Tlingit village to learn about its heritage, and the fishing town of Sitka to glean past and present. Alaska's Inside Passage – truly unlike anywhere else on the planet.
