If a Alaskan Cruise sounds good, AdventureSmith Explorations has a premier program to join, the Great National Parks of Alaska. It begins with an adventure cruise embarking in Juneau, climaxing 18 days later in Anchorage. This land-sea journey via multiple modes of transportation, embraces much of the best Alaska has to offer.
You’ll travel for eight days aboard the 60-guest Wilderness Adventurer taking multiple days to visit Glacier Bay National Park, then transfer to Anchorage for a ride on the Alaskan Railroad along the coast from Anchorage to Seward. The next leg is a half-day marine wildlife cruise into Kenai Fjords National Park to Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge, the only accommodation located within the park.
After returning to Anchorage by boat and rail, a narrated road trip delivers you deep into Denali National Park for three intense days of sightseeing and wildlife viewing. Accommodations are deep within the park, at the end of the 92-mile park road on family-owned land, providing exclusive access into the wilderness core of the park. Returning by bus to the park entrance, you then board the historic Alaskan Railroad for the return trip to Anchorage, crossing over Alaska’s highest bridge at Hurricane Gulch. Hotel accommodations await followed by airport transfers the next day.
This journey represents the love that AdventureSmith Explorations’ Founder/President Todd Smith has for America’s ‘Last Frontier’ where he spent his early days as a professional guide helping to pioneer adventure cruising in Alaska. Today AdventureSmith Explorations wears the mantle of being the leading small ship expedition cruise expert for both Alaska and destinations worldwide. And, this trip, while covering the highlights of Alaska, also avoids busy ports and mass tourism crowds. Giving you a unique view of this great state.
AdventureSmith Director of Sales & Operations Justin Massoni also has deep roots in Alaska. Together with staff who have traveled extensively there, Smith and Massoni created this itinerary representing what Smith calls “the ultimate Alaska land-and-sea experience.” Smith said the 18-day itinerary reflects a growing demand from clients to stay longer in Alaska. The company has long serviced these requests by arranging pre- and post-cruise extensions.
