Email Tour View map

Highlights: Juneau | Icy Straight | Chichagof Island | Baranof Island | Federick Sound | Endicott Arm On this exclusive expedition for the elite few, Alaska is sure to have a lasting impact. Capture the blue, green, and white hues of this massive landscape in your memory and in photos. Get up-close.

  • Whale watch in Frederick Sound and Icy Strait
  • Dawes Glacier and iceberg-rich Endicott Arm
  • Experience cathedral-walled Fords Terror
  • Kayak and hike in the remote Port Houghton or Windham Bay
  • Explore rugged shores by skiff
  • Towering waterfalls and a day of play on Baranof Island
  • Hike through the immense Tongass National Forest with your Interpretive Guide
  • Watch for wildlife at Chichagof Island
  • Secluded exploration of tucked-away coves

Day 1 Juneau, Alaska Embarkation Captain and crew welcome you and your fellow adventurers aboard. Pushing off from the dock, your week of exploration begins as you sail through Stephens Passage!

Day 2 Icy Strait The western-most point of your journey, Icy Strait is a favored summer stopping point for whales. Watch for tell-tale spray from the bow or join your captain on the bridge for an eagle-eye view. Cruise toward Cross Sound and get up-close to the rugged coast by skiff, keeping a lookout for hidden treasures, including rambunctious Steller sea lions.

Day 3 Chichagof Island Wildlife searches top your list today. Chichagof’s waterfall-lined coast is home to harbor seals, whales, and porpoises, and deep in the forest, bears. Settle in to one of the island’s “not in the guidebook” quiet coves for a chance to head ashore for an exploratory hike or slip into the water for another paddle in the heart of this wild archipelago.

Day 4 Baranof Island The eighth largest island in Alaska, Baranof boasts towering waterfalls along its sheer granite walls. Eagles soar off thermals above and sea otters play in the water below. A guided hike through temperate rainforest uncovers the flora and fauna of an intricate ecosystem. Or go for the water on a skiff, paddle board, or kayak. It’s a full day of adventure!

Day 5 Frederick Sound Frederick Sound is a playground for whales, harbor seals, sea lions—and for you too! And the odds are high there’ll be humpbacks feeding and spouting in the waters of the sound. Located in southeast Alaska’s Alexander Archipelago and surrounded by emerald forests and a backdrop of the looming Coast Mountains, you may even have an opportunity to gear up for an adventurous bushwhack or a guided walk among tide pools.

Day 6 Port Houghton—or—Windham Bay This forested bay looks nearly the same today as it did for hearty frontier folk a century ago. Lucky for you, you won’t have to battle as rough of extremes—choose to witness this wilderness fjord by skiff or go by foot hiking along a coastal river. Investigate hidden nooks and crannies along the rugged shore by kayak and paddleboard watching for big wildlife and plentiful shorebirds. At the end of this big day of adventure, enjoy a refreshing beverage with your fellow shipmates in the lounge. It’s a tough life!

Day 7 Endicott Arm / Fords Terror It’s a landscape that lives up to Alaska’s nickname, The Great Land—peaks that fill the horizon, a glittering blue river of ice, and the booming crack of “white thunder” as ice calves from the face of Dawes Glacier. Take to the skiffs to explore this astounding fjord. Keep watch for local residents—mountain goats, arctic terns, and seals in repose on the glacier’s “bergy bits.” And if tides and conditions allow, navigate through the cathedral-walls of Fords Terror. After dinner this evening, your expedition team treats you to a special photo presentation of your unforgettable week.

Day 8 Juneau Disembarkation Savor a last sumptuous breakfast before wishing your travel companions safe travels.
