This expedition through some of nature’s more secluded landscapes will allow us to discover the remote inner reaches of Alaska’s Inside Passage aboard the 66-passenger Admiralty Dream. Enjoy the agility and flexibility of small-ship travel, up-close encounters with wildlife, stunning scenery, and cultural experiences on this 7-day journey with all onboard hand-crafted meals each day. An Orbridge Expedition Leader and two expert naturalists will help you to learn some surprising details about animal behavior, glacier activity, and the wealth of natural spectacles that exist in these protected waters. Capture the sight of whales breaching next to your boat, bears fishing along the shoreline, and eagles looking down from their nests and witness Alaska’s amazing show of nature. Along the journey, take your pick of fun activities such as kayaking, skiff rides, and hiking, and enjoy relaxing cups of hot cocoa on the deck.

This program also offers an optional pre-extension to Denali National Park. Explore this vast and stunningly beautiful wilderness – home to Mt. Denali, the highest mountain in North America. Ride the Alaska Railroad, stay in a hilltop lodge with panoramic views located inside the park, and learn how this magnificent area became one of our nation’s most breathtaking conservation areas.
