Alaska is a destination of stunning scenery and incredible wildlife-viewing opportunities. It is a vast, sparsely populated landscape dominated by pristine wilderness areas.
The fjords and inlets of the famous Inside Passage are an undoubted highlight, as is legendary Katmai National Park, home to an impressive population of Alaskan Brown Bears. Denali National Park is also a terrific area to explore, home to North America’s highest peak – Mount Denali (Mount McKinley), standing at an impressive 6,190 metres above sea level.
Alaska is a fabulous holiday destination, and offers a wide range of scenic tours and adventures. Most popular of all is a cruise through the extraordinary Inside Passage, one of earth’s most beautiful wilderness areas. Travelling by small cruise ship or yachts (40-80 passengers), guests explore the Inside Passage on guided activities ranging from walking and kayaking to stand-up paddle boards. The passage is home to a wealth of wildlife, ranging from bears, moose and caribou to humpback whales, sea lions and orcas. Natural Focus offers a range of superb small ships that specialise in getting you close to the action, exploring gorgeous forests, towering waterfalls, picturesque towns and idyllic shores.
