Join us on this one-of-a-kind, seven-night cruise through the Inside Passage from Juneau to Vancouver during the long days of summer. The exclusively chartered, five-star ship Le Soléal navigates isolated inlets and coves that are inaccessible to larger vessels, bringing you up close to the most spectacular scenery of southeastern Alaska and Canada. From the comfort of your own spacious, ocean-view suite or stateroom, marvel at the Arctic-blue glaciers, towering mountains, untouched coastlines and abundant wildlife—whales, harbor seals, porpoises, sea lions, sea otters and eagles—all in their natural habitat. Experience the unspoiled Inian Islands, dramatic Tracy Arm Fjord and seldom-visited Misty Fjords National Monument (weather permitting). Step back into the gold rush era and discover the living heritage of the indigenous Tlingit people in the historic town of Ketchikan. Extend your travels with a Denali National Park, Fairbanks and Anchorage pre-cruise option and the Vancouver and Victoria post-cruise option.
