Your tour includes a 6-night land tour and a relaxing 7-night cruise onboard Holland America’s intimate ship ms Westerdam. This comprehensive tour of Alaska includes Denali National Park & Glacier Bay National Park, the best of Alaska. You’ll have unique experiences along the way including a paddleboat ride and gold panning in Fairbanks, a rail journey through incredible scenery, a night in the quaint town of Seward and much more as you sail the Inside Passage. It’s a trip of a lifetime and the one you’ve been waiting for!

Westmark Fairbanks (2 nights): Welcome to Fairbanks, Alaska! Upon arrival, you’ll meet your Holland America Journey Host at the hotel. Our wonderful tour starts tomorrow. We recommend arriving prior to 10:00 pm if possible, for Holland America transfers.

We embark on a fun full day tour of Fairbanks and the area. Start with a train tour to Gold Dredge #8 and pan for your own gold. Then we take a 3-hour Discovery Riverboat trip up the Chena & Tanana rivers to learn about the Athabascan life. Lunch is Included at Steamboat Landing.

McKinley Chalets (2 nights): This morning we depart Fairbanks by coach around 9:00 am and arrive in Denali National Park about 1:00 pm. Enjoy a free afternoon in this beautiful area. There are many optional excursions to choose from or just relax in your beautiful surroundings.

We’ll have an early start today on our Tundra Wilderness Tour deep into Denali National Park. Keep an eye out for the Big-5 wildlife and a glimpse of Mt. Denali. Our naturalist guide will show us the way. Snack Box Included. Return this afternoon to relax or join a variety of optional excursions.

Hotel Captain Cook (1 night): The McKinley Explorer Train departs Denali National Park at 9:30 am. Relax as we travel through spectacular scenery as we make our way to Anchorage. Lunch is Included on Train. Arrive Anchorage about 5:00 pm, just in time to enjoy dinner at one of many fine restaurants.

Windsong Lodge (1 night): Your morning is free to explore Alaska’s largest city. Grab a coffee and head over to the huge Farmer’s Market (opens 10:00 am) if you wish. Or enjoying the comfort of your hotel until we depart. We head to Seward at 12 Noon and arrive at 4:30 pm. If you want to keep busy tonight, join the optional Seavey Dog Sled Ididaride Tour!

Your morning is free or book an optional tour to Kenai Fjords National Park. The Seward Sealife Center is also an interesting place to visit. We board the ship this afternoon. You’ll have time explore the city if you wish to go back after check-in. All aboard will be 7:30 pm. Ship sails at 8:00 pm.

Relax on your first day at sea. 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!

Relax onboard today as we cruise scenic Glacier Bay. Watch for humpback whales and other marine life throughout our day. Immense glaciers surround us, culminating 65 miles into the park at Margerie & Grand Pacific glaciers. We will be in Glacier Bay from 8:30 am to 6:30 pm.

Haines is the most Alaskan town you’ll visit on the coast. Head up the hill to Downtown and snoop through the shops. Visit the Hammer Museum or learn about the area at Fort Seward. There are many excursions to choose from including the Bald Eagle Preserve. For even more options, take the Fast Ferry across the Lynn Canal to Skagway. We are in port from 6:30 am to 9:00 pm.

Today Fox World takes everyone on a Private Whale Watching Cruise with ShoreTrips. We’ll be on a smaller 30-passenger boat to get up close to humpback whales and other marine-life. The afternoon will be free for optional excursions or exploring Alaska’s capital. We are in port from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm.

The Port of Ketchikan is our stop today. There are many excursions offered here including float plane trips to Misty Fjord, totem parks, fishing excursions, zip lining, and even snorkeling! It’s also a shopper’s haven, offering many stores just off the ship. Visit famous Creek Street too and its lovely boutique shops. We are in port from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm.

Your final day on board will be for you! Join us for a Fox World Travel Farewell Cocktail Party this evening.

The ship arrives in Vancouver at 7:00 am 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 in. We recommend flights after 11:00 am for Holland America airport transfers.
