Other highlights include a journey on the scenic Alaska Railroad, a visit to Talkeetna with a jet boat tour in Devil’s Canyon and a six-hour wildlife cruise into Kenai Fjords National Park. At sea, guests explore Alaska’s rugged coastline, with glacier-viewing, whale-watching and culture-rich ports of call.
