One of the must see tours in British Columbia! Start the optional tour journey to Whistler. Witness panoramic ocean views, sky-high mountains and glaciers as well as the opportunity to spot local wildlife. Once in Squamish take a short ride up to the summit of the Sea to Sky Gondola (an impressive 885 meters above sea-level). Enjoy sweeping views of the surrounding mountain ranges, the turquoise waters of Howe sound and Shannon Falls. From the first viewpoint you will have a spectacular view of the stunning 70 metre high waterfall. Continue north along the Sea to Sky highway to the world famous Whistler Village. The charming pedestrian-only village has something to offer for everyone!

A day at sea is never boring on Royal Caribbean. There is an activity program for guests of all ages and tastes. Programs run all day from dawn to dusk.
Explore Sitka National Historical Park to trace the town’s early beginnings and native heritage. See indigenous artifacts, watch a documentary film, and walk the mile-long Totem Trail. Learn about Sitka’s Russian influence on a walk to St. Michael’s Cathedral., one of the few remaining Russian Orthodox churches in Alaska and check out the Russian Bishop’s House. Sitka’s rare wildlife astounds, from Saint Lazaria Island’s orange-beaked puffins to Alaska Maritime Refuge’s 40 million seabirds.
Tracy Arm Fjord extends over 30 miles alongside the wilderness of Tongass National Forest. Sailing through this deep and narrow passage delivers some of the most breath-taking scenery you’ll find in Alaska. See active glaciers carved into 7,000-foot-tall mountain peaks and plunging waterfalls burrowed into evergreen-clad cliffs. Glimpse native wildlife and watch deep blue icebergs float past the ship. See pigeon guillemots, kittiwakes and arctic terns. Mountain goats graze on rocky slopes, while new-born seal pups sun on ice floes. Glimpse black bears hunting for lunch and soaring eagles- or watch for the fluke of a whale diving below.
Once you arrive, you’ll find majestic views and rich culture in every corner. With its snow-capped mountains, misty rainforests, massive glaciers and bounty of wildlife, Alaska’s remote state capital is the perfect place to dive into nature. Travel to Juneau’s Mendenhall Glacier and join a team of professional mushers and their huskies on a sleigh ride over the snow or follow in the footsteps of fortune hunters and pan for gold along trails forged by prospectors over a hundred years ago during the Juneau gold rush.
Experience the daunting power of the largest tidewater glacier in North America. While most glaciers tend to thin and retreat, Hubbard Glacier continues to thicken and actively advance toward the Gulf of Alaska, earning the nickname “Galloping Glacier”. Sailing into Disenchantment Bay near the glacier’s 400-foot-tall face, you’ll get panoramic views of its gigantic expanse- Hubbard is a monstrous 76 miles long and 1,200 feet deep.
Sitting at the southern end of Alaska’s Inside Passage, it’s a gateway to the wild landscapes and seascapes of Misty Fjords National Monument. Ketchikan has more totem poles than anywhere in the world. And just south of downtown at Saxman Native Village you’ll find a nice collection of finely carved and decorated totems. If you’re craving natural thrills, venture past the town limits into Tongass National Forest. The largest national forest in the U.S., it’s a great place to spot local wildlife like deer, seals- even black bears and bald eagles. If you really want to experience Alaska’s dramatic landscape, visit Misty Fjords National Monument. It’s 3,570 square feet of rock walls, towering trees, sea cliffs and dramatic fjords.
