Treasures of the Inside Passage: Alaska and British Columbia

Linger in the seldom-seen wild regions & explore iconic National Parks
Linger in the temperate rain forests and wildlife-rich channels of British Columbia, and enjoy ample time to explore the breathtaking fjords and towering glaciers of Southeast Alaska. Plus, discover the cultural facets of this coast during captivating performances and interactions with the Kwakwaka’wakw people of Alert Bay. This Alaska itinerary will enable you to:

  • Explore the wild and sublimely tranquil San Juan and Gulf Islands
  • Observe a moving First Nations performance at the U’Mista Cultural Center
  • By special permit, spend a full day exploring Glacier Bay National Park

An in-depth exploration of the San Juan & Gulf Islands plus British Columbia’s Inside Passage

Spend a full day in the San Juan Islands hiking and kayaking with naturalists and searching for killer whales. Explore some of the hundreds of uninhabited, remote inlets and bays of the Gulf Islands. In British Columbia you’ll kayak among forested islands and along wildlife-rich shorelines to see whales, dolphins, bears and more—plus observe a moving traditional First Nations performance in Alert Bay.

Explore Alaska’s National Parks and wilderness areas
By special permit you’ll sail into Glacier Bay National park and pass a full day taking in the grand scale of the park’s mountains, fjords, and active glaciers. In Ford’s Terror Wilderness Area you’ll be able to nose your expedition landing craft or kayak up to spectacular falls or hike over the lush green earth into the mist-shrouded mountainside. And in Misty Fiords National Monument you’ll be able to kayak along sheer, glacially-carved cliffs and forested backwaters.

Get a slice of Alaska life
Spend an afternoon strolling the streets of the 100-year-old town of Petersburg. You’ll find its charming Norwegian heritage evident, and you’ll get a firsthand look at a town supported largely by fishing the region’s productive waters. Visit the ships in port, walk the colorful downtown, stop for a pint in one of the town pubs, and enjoy an evening crab feast.

Travel in excellent company 
Explore under the sure guidance of an expedition leader, veteran naturalists, including a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor and an undersea specialist, plus a wellness specialist––the largest and most knowledgeable expedition team in Alaska. Their knowledge and passion for Alaska is the key to your once-in-a-lifetime experience.
