Ports of call:
Ketchikan - A walk along historic Creek Street, a Red Light District during the Gold Rush, provides a great introduction to the self-proclaimed “Salmon Capital of the World”. Visitors to Ketchikan will be intrigued by its rich Native heritage, which is on colorful display at Totem Bight State Park and Saxman Native village. The Haida, Tlingit and Tsimshian are all a part of the city's history. Juneau - This is where Joe Juneau and Dick Harris discovered gold, setting off a frenzy in 1880. The gold didn’t last, but you can still pan, visit abandoned mines and enjoy the area’s beautiful glaciers on an Alaska Inside Passage cruise. Be sure to stop in at the historic Red Dog Saloon, which still boasts Wyatt Earp’s gun.
Skagway - A stroll along the lovingly restored frontier-era storefronts and saloons will take you back to the days of the Klondike Gold Rush as will a ride aboard the vintage White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad to the Klondike Summit and Yukon. Visit a mining camp and let frontier-costumed characters delight you with Alaska folklore.
Victoria - Victoria is a beauty to behold, surrounded on all sides by magnificent nature. Take in the sights from a double-decker bus or a horse-drawn tally-ho and enjoy this capital city’s English aspirations. From glorious beaches to Butchart Gardens to deluxe whale watching, this charming Canadian city is truly a hidden treasure.
