Authentic Experiences

We are focused on creating authentic experiences. If the desire for authenticity is a driver for the type of destinations you want to travel to, consider Alaska, which has been identified as one of the most popular destinations for millennials, empty-nesters, to multi-generational families. If you want once-in-a-lifetime experiences that feel authentic, fully immerse yourself into new cultures, feast on local cuisine and run of the mill shore excursions won't cut it for you; explore somewhere like Alaska. Go glacier trekking, kayaking, whale watching, fish for king salmon, back-country hiking, or bear & eagle viewing just to name a few. We can help you find those off-the-beaten path experiences, and make sure you focus on all aspects of your Alaska travel experience, from wildlife viewing, rail, excursions, wilderness lodges and of course, a great cruise. If you are a millennial*, chances are you were born and raised online. As for the rest of us, we learned along the way. Either way, you are likely known for researching and exploring every aspect of a trip on the internet, so by the time you get to us, you're looking for specific details about Alaska that only a Certified Alaska Travel Expert would know. No doubt, you've come to the right place. Ready to embark on a real experience? Then, let's get started.

You'll never forget your first glimpse of a glacier - a wall of glowing blue ice hundreds of feet tall, creaking and crashing as it calves a building-size iceberg into the tidewater below. It's a spectacle not to be missed - and one you'll be treated to on every 2017 Alaska Cruise vacation Be sure to visit Glacier Bay National Park - an untouched wilderness with several large tidewater glaciers and abundant wildlife, a highlight of all Voyage of the Glaciers sailings and many Inside Passage itineraries. You can even land on glaciers via helicopter or plane, flight see above glaciers and hike to glaciers. Thrill to white thunder in Glacier Bay, marvel at sunlight at midnight and close-ups of whales, eagles and caribou. Delight in Mt. McKinley's majesty and meadows carpeted with wildflowers. Amid unsurpassed grandeur and serenity, the true wilderness of Denali is calling. Catch sight of a humpback whale or wolf pups frolicking in the snow.

  • "Wolf, Moose, Caribou, Eagles, Whales & Bear!"

    " Our trip was excellent. The room, with the upgrades, was amazing! We saw many eagles (bald and golden), one bear, many whales, including one breach, seals, one bear, one wolf, moose and caribou, and many smaller animals.. If we travelled during salmon run, we probably would have seen more bear and eagles. The scenery is to die for, the vistas spectacular. The ship was great; service, food, etc were all great. Thanks for everything. "

  • "Denali Up Close"

    "Pat and I returned from an 11 day trip to Alaska. Truly The Last Frontier. We had the pleasure of traveling with 6 of our very dear and close friends, Mike & Susie, Ron & Rachel and Craig & Diane. We saw incredible scenery, moose, mountain sheep and goats, humpback whales, dolphins, and a wolf. We examined Denali (aka Mt. McKinley ) up close and personal in a small airplane. We watched in awe the calving of the immense glaciers in Glacier Bay. The weather was absolutely beautiful."

    Walt Stout
  • "Spectacular Scenery"

    "Donna Gail and I want to report on our Alaska Trip, with our thanks to you for suggesting and helping us to plan a trip that was excellent in every aspect. The accommodations [both on land and on the Star Princess] were first-rate; the transitions were timely and pleasant; the scenery was spectacular [especially in Denali National Park and the glaciers in Glacier Bay National Park]; the wildlife and bird sightings were wondrous [where else but in Alaska would a train stop for a moose on the tracks?]; the food was creative, filling, and sometimes a challenge to consume all of it.  We would recommend to anyone visiting Denali National Park that he/she go to the Husky Homestead and hear and meet four-time Iditarod champion Jeff King. A most enjoyable and informative evening! A highlight of the trip for me was standing beneath the Trans-Alaska Pipeline near Gold Dredge 8 [outside Fairbanks], and hearing a presentation on its construction and maintenance. All in all, a memorable trip with everything in place [by Princess]. Thanks so much for all your help and recommendations in making it so!"

  • "Expectations Met"

    "Burt and I got back last night from our Alaskan cruise/tour. We had a fabulous time. Everything went well, the weather could not have been better. Our tour director was wonderful, as was our driver. We saw whales, bears, moose, etc. It simple could not have gone any better than it did. We are grateful to you for that."

    Jane and Bert Odenheimer
  • "Picture Perfect"

    "Raye and Marty... Working with you two has been a delight. You both did not just book cruise fares... You looked after all the details just like a shepherd and his sheep. You double checked with everyone to make sure documents and boarding passes and all manner of things were looked after. Thanks so much and look forward to working with you both again." - Cameracraftsmen of America  - Star Princess - 90 Guests .

  • "Thank You"

    ""Raye, first of all, I want to Thank You for all you did in arranging our Alaska land/cruise tour in May [2016]. We had a fantastic time and everything went so smoothly. The transfers, hotels, luggage moving, tours and everything was so organized that we couldn’t have been happier. The thing I was most impressed with was getting our room keys and information before we ever got to the hotels/ship and not having to check in every time. Princess really has these procedures down to a science and I would recommend this land/cruise trip to anyone interested."
