Fairbanks to Vancouver
Explore more of Alaska and Canada’s Inside Passage during this extended cruise combining Prince William Sound’s legendary fjords and glaciers with an inland tour and train ride to picturesque Denali National Park. Throughout your journey Windstar’s Signature Expedition guides offer insights on wildlife and lead kayak and nature photography expeditions directly from your ship. Test both luck and skills while fishing for Chinook or sockeye salmon among Copper River’s eddies and deep pools. Master dogsled team skills on the expansive Mendenhall Glacier. Float close to the turquoise-hued calving ice at the ends of the breathtaking Tracy or Endicott Arms. As you journey inland to Denali, you’ll see caribou, Dall sheep and foxes, with ample opportunities for spotting moose, grizzly, and roaming wolf packs. After time in the Denali wilderness, you’ll visit the rustic, frontier town of Talkeetna, a centuries-old gathering for Denali expeditions, and ride in domed observation cars on an Anchorage-bound train.
