Join Colleen on her 34th journey to the wilds of the north as she explores her beloved Alaska and the mighty Yukon Territory! Start with fresh air, endless beautiful scenery and the thrill of seeing wildlife in Alaska. Then off to the Yukon. Dawson City is especially her kind of town, with its dirt streets, clapboard sidewalks, crooked buildings, colorful characters and rowdy can-can shows!

Your tour includes a 7-night land tour and a relaxing 4-night cruise onboard Holland America`s ship Koningsdam. There`s no doubt there will be some adventures and tales of your own to tell on this great adventure!

Enjoy lunch onboard and then head back into Skagway to see the sites.

Today is a full day of cruising scenic Glacier Bay National Park. Immense glaciers surround us at every turn. You’ll see alpine glaciers in the mountains and beautiful tidewater glaciers at sea level. Your day culminates 65 miles into the park at Margerie and Grand Pacific glaciers. Keep an eye out for whales and other marine life, many types of birds and even wildlife on the shore. Park rangers and naturalists onboard will keep you informed as well.

The Port of Ketchikan is our stop today. Of the many excursions offered here, float plane trips to Misty Fjord, totem parks, fishing excursions, zip lining, and even snorkeling are quite popular! It’s also a shoppers haven with a myriad of stores just steps from the ship. Stroll over to famous Creek Street to visit lovely boutique shops, watch for salmon, hike the wooded trails or take in a panoramic view from the Cape Fox Lodge.

Your final day on board will be for you! Explore the ship, take in a cooking lecture at America’s Test Kitchen, check out the casino, listen to great music at BB King’s, and dine to your heart’s content!

Our ship arrives this morning in Vancouver and disembarks soon after docking. If you have time before your flight or want to stay an extra day or two, Vancouver is a beautiful city to spend time. We recommend flights after 11:00 am for Holland America airport transfers.
