Alaska’s Bounty

There’s always more to expect when you sail Alaska with Holland America Line. 

Stunning beauty of Alaska’s coast

Inspiration is everywhere when you voyage through Alaska. It’s in the brilliance of a blue-tinted glacier that crackles and thunders as a slab of ice breaks into the sea or the sheer joy of spotting an orca whale breaching in the waters and bald eagles soaring above. Moments like those are abundant from ship to shore when you sail with Holland America Line.

White Pass & Yukon Route

With 70 years of experience in Alaska, it’s no wonder that Holland America Line was selected as the No. 1 cruise line in Alaska by Cruise Critic’s 2019 Cruisers’ Choice Destinations Awards. Pick from any embarkation point, find the voyage that suits your needs — from seven to 21 days — and even extend your time on land to explore more.

As you embark on your voyage, you’ll feel a growing sense of anticipation for Alaska’s star attractions: massive tidewater glaciers that are in a constant state of change — flowing like rivers and breaking off dramatically into warmer seawaters below. Every itinerary includes views of one or more glaciers: Hubbard Glacier, the twin Sawyer Glaciers of Tracy Arm or the glaciers of College Fjord and Glacier Bay National Park.

Glaciers galore!

Only a select group of cruise lines are able to enter the pristine waters of Glacier Bay where several tidewater glaciers dominate the landscape, and Holland America Line offers more visits than any other. Learn from park rangers who board your ship and spot wildlife at every angle — from humpback whales and Steller sea lions splashing in the sea to mountain goats traipsing through the landscape and any number of the 200 types of birds soaring overhead.

See the grizzlies by land or by sea

Your time on board is as engaging as the experiences you’ll uncover on land. Meet naturalists and dine on regionally inspired cuisine designed by a top-tier culinary council. As you pull closer to shore, look forward to excursions that fulfill every curiosity you’ve had about this great land: a salmon fishing trip that culminates in a campfire cookout as a chef prepares your catch of the day; a floatplane adventure deep into Tongass National Forest to spot black bears feeding from a stream; and, of course, the majestic Mendenhall Glacier just beyond Juneau.

Inspired to explore more? Immersive Land+Sea Journeys were forged from deep connections to local communities. Roll through the rugged terrain aboard the McKinley Explorer train from Anchorage to just outside Denali National Park — collecting a treasure trove of photographs as you pass by gleaming lakes, valleys and soaring mountain peaks.

Spend up to three nights at McKinley Chalet Resort near the gates of Denali National Park, where you’ll have plenty of time to stroll through lively Denali Square,™ go rafting along the glacial Nenana River or simply spend time on your private balcony with sweeping forest views. Travel 62 miles deep into the wildlife-rich park, complimentary when you spend two or three nights at McKinley Chalet Resort.
