I often have clients say to me, “I’d love to visit Alaska, but I don’t like boats.” As the conversation progresses, I then realize that because of the over-marketing of cruise ships, many clients don’t realize that there are other ways to visit Alaska! In this article, we’ll discuss cruises, land tours, cruisetours, rail, and self-drive trips to Alaska.
Overall, I really liked having an extra day in Anchorage to start relaxing and get a small taste of the area before our cruise, and I would recommend it to anyone, regardless of whether or not you are visiting Denali before your cruise. Although we didn’t squeeze them into this trip, there are a variety of other things we could have done, including a trip to Aleyska Ski Resort, a cruise on Portage Lake, a trek on Matanuska Glacier, and even booking a charter tour to see Denali via plane in one day! If we had more than 2 days, I wouldn’t choose to stay the whole time in Anchorage, but for one extra night, it was a great beginning to a wonderful trip!
Imagine paying just over an average of $100 per day per person for an 11 –day adventure that includes a 7 day stunning Alaska cruise as well as 3 days visiting Mt McKinley and Denali National Park. And your cabin includes $50 spending money per person if you book before April 21! Ready to book this cruise?
