Enjoy a fabulous week in Southeast Alaska, immersed in splendid scenery where wildlife abounds. Experience all the glory of Southeast Alaska ... and no, it’s not a cruise!

Indulge at the fabulous Gustavus Inn. Unpack once, then enjoy ample time to wander, watch birds, pick berries, and spot whales, and for those that wish, enjoy some of the best fishing possible. Meals are fantastic, and much of the produce is from the Inn’s garden. The scenery is incredible, and we are within walking distance of an artisan coffee shop, the ferry dock where Bald Eagle and other birds abound, and more.

This is a relaxed-pace tour with time to really learn, savor, and delight in the heart of Alaska’s wildlife-rich Inside Passage at Gustavus/Glacier Bay.

This year we're offering a pre-tour extension with two days of bear viewing in prime areas accessed by small plane, where expert guides help you view bears catching salmon — this is prime time!
