If you’re in love with the idea of an adventurous cruise but don’t want to leave the luxury behind, then the good news is that you can take it with you on Crystal Cruises’ Alaskan adventures in 2016.
A region which will forever be associated with exploration, Alaska is also one which Crystal Cruises has taken cruisers to in ultra-luxury over the course of its 25 year history, but next year it will celebrate this iciest of expanses in true style, with a total of seven new sailings to choose from.
It should be made clear however that, as an incredible experience as it is, this isn’t just a chance to soak up the spectacular scenery but to get involved in your own Alaskan adventure while ashore.
A Heli-Hike and White Pass Railway adventure will take you on a four to five mile hike with the opportunity to spot bears, moose and more, while a Glacier flightseeing and dog sledding adventure showcases the region from both the air and on the ground, in two distinctly different but equally exhilarating ways.
Another pastime in the area popular with both residents and visitors alike is indulging in a spot of whale-watching and you can do it in Crystal style with the chance to embark on a Whale-watching eco-adventure, on which you can see orcas and humpbacks, as well as the odd sea lion or three. You’ll also learn more about the on-going conservation efforts in the area, thanks to the Marine Conservation Alliance Foundation, who also organise the adventure.
These are just some of the Alaskan adventures on offer with Crystal Cruises and there’s also the chance to trek across glaciers and through vast forests, take a zip line ride or even embark on a thrilling kayak excursion – the choice is yours when it comes to deciding how you spend your time ashore.
