Why not let Fred.\ tailor-make your Alaskan cruise holiday for you with a fly cruise from Vancouver? Often thought of as Canada's most beautiful city, Vancouver is a gorgeous thriving metropolis that's fortunate enough to be flanked by the ocean and mountains.

In North America's most northern state, you will be witness to spectacular glaciers, winding through the mountains and out to sea found at College Fjord, and Hubbard Glacier. See amazing marine wildlife at Glacier Bay, home of humpback whales, sea otters and porpoises. Glacier Bay possesses the highest concentration of tidewater glaciers on the planet that stretch over 3.3million acres from the St. Elias and Fairweather mountain ranges to the ends of the fjords. You can experience the history and culture of Alaska at Icy Strait Point where you can interact with the Huna Tinglit people.
Some of the best glacier viewing in the state can be seen tucked into the northwest corner of Prince William Sound at College Fjord. Winding down from mountains and through valleys and fjords, these massive rivers of ice are often on the move, periodically dropping their bounty into the sea.
You can wander through the busy fishing town that line the Alaskan Coast; Ketchikan, salmon capital of the world; Whittier, gateway to the bustling city of Anchorage; Skagway which retains the flavour of the gold rush days with its rustic boardwalk and frontier style shop fronts, and Seward, once the southern terminus of the Alaskan Railroad.
Juneau is arguably one of America's most beautiful state capitals, with the looming summits of Mt. Juneau and Mt. Roberts providing a gorgeous backdrop.
