Cruising Alaska’s Glaciers and Inside Passage

Cruise from Vancouver to Juneau

Join this one-of-a-kind seven-night exploration-style cruise through the Inside Passage from Vancouver to Juneau during the long days of summer. Explore cobalt blue glaciers, towering mountains, untouched coastlines and abundant wildlife as they unfold in an immense panorama on this exceptional cruise of Alaska’s glaciers and the Inside Passage—the last of the great American frontiers. Our journey will call at archetypal Alaskan towns, including colorful Ketchikan, rich in Alaskan art and tradition; off‑the‑beaten‑path Petersburg, the region’s “Little Norway;” and historic Sitka, a cultural fusion of Tlingit and Russian heritage. Cruise the majestic Misty Fjords and Tracy Arm Fjord, a seascape of plunging waterfalls and serrated peaks, to the face of the monumental Dawes and South Sawyer Glaciers. During naturalist-led Zodiac excursions and from the comfort of your own spacious, ocean-view suite or stateroom, see Arctic‑blue glaciers, towering mountains, untouched coastlines and abundant wildlife—whales, harbor seals, porpoises, sea lions, sea otters and eagles in their natural habitat

Exclusively chartered for this voyage, the five‑star small ship Le Soléal is ideal for traversing narrow fjords and isolated coves inaccessible to larger ships, while carefully navigating through the marine ecosystem. Experience the unforgettable scenery and thrilling wildlife of southeastern Alaska and northwestern Pacific Canada up close—from observation decks, during Zodiac excursions and from the comfort of elegantly appointed suites and staterooms, most with private balconies.
