Maneuver into the Gastineau Channel and dock in Alaska’s capital city, Juneau. The downtown area is vedry walkable and full of local shops.

Welcome to the “Gateway City to the Klondike Gold Rush”!  This historic community still has the feel of an 1898 boom town. The voices coming from the saloons and the sound of boots on the boardwalk still echo in the air, while the legend of outlaw “Soapy Smith” lives on in every story.

Day 5: Glacier Bay National Park

Dress in warm layers today as we slowly cruise the fjords of this national park. Pass granite cliffs and green rocky hills on our way to view Margerie Glacier. Stand on deck to hear, see and feel the ice crash into the waters below. Watch for sea otters and harbor seals as we cruise.
