Unwind from a day of sightseeing and exploration at Cordova’s Orca Adventure Lodge. Enjoy locally-inspired bites like snow crab and Alaska halibut from the on-site restaurant while warming up by the bonfire and enjoying views of the surrounding glacier-carved mountains and Orca Inlet. If this land-only itinerary isn’t enough to satisfy your wanderlust, add a tour of the Inside Passage with Alaskan Dream Cruises. Sailing from Juneau to Sitka, the Baranof Dream cruises through Glacier Bay National Park and along the Tracy Arm Fjord to the coastal towns of Petersburg, Wrangell, Kake and Sitka. Although many of the John Hall’s Alaska tours are already sold out for 2019, there is still space available on two “Untamed Alaska” tours. Visit or call 800-325-2270 to reserve space today.

Kicking off and ending in Anchorage, this tour explores Southcentral and Interior Alaska from onboard the Alaska Railroad’s GoldStar Service cars and John Hall’s Alaska luxury motorcoach fleet. From scanning for Alaska wildlife like moose and bears to listening to tales from the knowledgeable, local onboard crews, the journey is as engaging as the many destinations and attractions along the way.
