Another great option is to visit Prince William Sound which offers a scenic discovery of tidewater glaciers.
Juneau is known as America’s most unusual state capital as it has no roads leading in and out of town and all travel is done by either boat or plane. This unique port of call is a former gold mining town and boasts some of Alaska’s most spectacular scenery. You can awe at the magnificent glaciers as you sail past, take a helicopter ride and watch for Alaskan bears and you can even spend a few hours panning for gold in Gold Creek.

Or, make a flight to nearby Misty Fjords--a breath-taking vista of Alaska’s unspoiled wilderness and America’s newest national monument.
Skagway is a historical city with a Gold Rush past and as you walk through the town you will feel like you stepped back in time as the buildings are made to look like they are from an old western town. During your time here you can take a train ride along the rugged mountains to the top of the White Pass which offers the most breath-taking views, take a stroll up to Lower Dewey Lake with lakes and nature surrounding you, or venture around the shops for a truly unique experience.
