GLOBUS 2018: Spectacular Alaska! with Alaska Cruise (AJI)
16 days from Anchorage to Vancouver
When you think of a spectacular Alaska vacation, what comes to mind? Witnessing glaciers calve into the sea? Riding the world-famous Alaska Railroad? Seeking out wildlife in Denali National Park? Or maybe it's cruising through the sea to watch for seals, sea otters, birds, and even whales. Whatever it is, this Alaska tour and cruise are sure to delight!

Board the Alaska Railroad in Deluxe Dome Service to Denali National Park, where you'll hear an exclusive presentation by a local Naturalist-a special experience offered by Globus! Seek out grizzly bear, caribou, moose, and more on a wilderness expedition. Take a cruise on Prince William Sound and along Columbia Glacier, the second-largest tide-water glacier in North America. You'll also take a cruise of Kenai Fjords National Park to see glaciers calving into the sea and to hear the thunderous roar. Photos and videos cannot adequately capture the experience-you must witness it in person. On both cruises, be sure to watch for wildlife.

See the Trans-Alaska Pipeline Terminal near Valdez, take a sternwheeler cruise in Fairbanks, visit the home of four-time Iditarod champion Martin Buser (another out-of-the-ordinary experience offered by Globus), and enjoy a 7-night cruise with ample opportunity to take in Alaska's awe-inspiring glaciers and majestic scenery. Explore the remote and rugged beauty of areas such as Glacier Bay National Park, Juneau, Ketchikan, and the amazing Inside Passage. Watch for spouting whales, soaring eagles, barking seals, and other wildlife. Marvel at glaciers and witness the amazing spectacle of thunder and spray as tremendous slabs of ice break off into the sea. Be sure to grab your camera and get ready for an Alaska tour and cruise that will leave you breathless and inspired-a travel experience of a lifetime.
