Your itinerary at a glance

An Alaska cruise tour offers the best of both worlds: an award-winning Alaska cruise through glacier-studded waters and then a rail & coach tour through the depths of Yukon & Denali.

This 14 night journey includes the services of a professional Journey Host, who will make your time on land easy, convenient and insightful.

Enjoy a scenic rail journey along Turnagain Arm aboard the cruise train en route to Anchorage. Board the luxurious domed rail cars of the McKinley Explorer to Denali for a two night stay at this magnificent national treasure.

Denali is the number one reason to book Alaska cruisetours into the state’s rugged wilderness and it’s easy to understand why. At an impressive 20,310 feet above sea level, Denali isn’t just any mountain; it’s the centerpiece of Alaska’s interior, a shining jewel rising above pristine Alaska wilderness.
