The call of Alaska is undeniable, from crackling glaciers rising from cobalt waters to the curious sight of brown bears pawing at rocks in search of their next meal. More than 70 years ago, Holland America Line set sights on this celebrated land and has been sailing here longer than Alaska has been a state! Discover how you can benefit from enduring connections when you venture to The Last Frontier.
Alaska Shore Excursion – EXC Tours™ ashore bring you even closer to the land, where you can let your personal passions guide you each day. Soar by helicopter to touch down on a glacier where a dog-sledding pack is awaiting your arrival. Soak up the summer sun while joining a select few to encounter Mendenhall Glacier by canoe. Or introduce young explorers to new perspectives as you stroll through a native village or follow in the footsteps of Alaskan pioneers to pan in gold-rich waters.
Glacier Bay National Park – Enjoy rare perspectives of Glacier Bay National Park — where conservation rules allow only two ships to enter the bay each day during peak summer months. Catch your breath in awe as you pull up for a front-row view of a tidewater glacier; a long-lasting partnership with the Huna people reveals native stories in indigenous voices; and a park ranger arrives by your side to point out marvels like enormous seals hauled out on rocks and a bald eagle soaring overhead.
