Alaska Tourist Guide
Reaching up to the northern polar extreme, Alaska is an
expansive landscape that dazzles with its grandeur. Towering fjords
and dramatic glaciers form the backdrop to a diverse wildlife of
whales, brown bears and birds of prey. A cruise is the ideal way to
explore the coast of Alaska, and this is best experienced on a
smaller ship able to visit the areas bigger ships cannot reach.
Despite being so far removed from the oft-tread routes of North
America, Alaska has proved a popular place with travelers looking
to experience the power of nature in a pristine environment.
Visitors will marvel at the sheer granite cliffs that tower over
above, while creaking glaciers edge their way into the icy waters
of the Arctic. This is nature at its most powerful; where brown
bears pluck fish from the rivers, otters crack and prise open
oysters, eagles soar and whales breach.
A cruise through Alaska is the ideal way to experience the
vastness and beauty of this magnificent wilderness. There are a
variety of options available, for all types of traveler, from the
opulent to the adventurous. Cruises are available on smaller yachts
that focus on close-up exploration of the wildlife and wilderness
with experienced tour guides to luxury cruises that cater to every
desire of the traveler as they journey though this wilderness.
While cruising in Alaska may not offer the warmth of the Caribbean
or the Mediterranean, it provides an opportunity that few in the
world will experience.
