Alaska is one of the most popular cruise destinations in the world, so it’s not surprising that one of the most luxurious cruise lines in the world sails there. Regent Seven Seas Cruises offers a superb selection of Alaska voyages, all of which include shore excursions as part of the fare price, and there is even the choice to extend your stay with an optional land tour.
The Alaska cruise season generally runs from May through September, this is actually the best time of year to visit as spring is in full bloom and the previously snow dusted tree-tops are now tinting the rugged landscape. Each voyage, although offering many similar ports of call, is always a unique adventure – you never know what you might encounter along the way – and one that we are certain will remain in the forefront of your memory for a very long time.
Included Alaska Shore Excursions with Regent Seven Seas
All of the following excursions are available on Regent Seven Seas Alaska voyages and they are all included in the fare price – so you can opt to do as many per port as you wish! We couldn’t possibly list every single one of the available options, so if there is anything in particular that you are looking for and we haven’t mentioned it, then give our Cruise Experts a call on the number shown above and below.
Juneau offers guests the chance to experience the beauty of north Douglas Island and views of the Auke Bay during the ‘Glacier View Sea Kayaking Tour’. This is also a great tour for those hoping to spot some local wildlife as porpoise, seals, sea lions, eagles, herons, and even whales can be spotted along the way.
The ‘Alaskan Lodge Adventure & Seafeast Tour’ in Ketchikan offers views of the picturesque coastline of Grant Island. You will have the rare opportunity to see an eagle’s nest and perhaps observe frolicking seals and porpoise in the water. You will also pass one of the few man-made structures in the area, a naval facility used to measure the acoustics from submarines. On arriving at Silverking Lodge, you will be treated to a delicious lunch of crab, mussels and shrimp.
In Skagway, experience the breath taking panorama of mountains, glaciers and gorges from the comfort of your vintage parlour car on the ‘White Pass Scenic Railroad Tour’. Built in 1898 during the Klondike Gold Rush, this narrow-gauge railroad is an International Historic Civil Engineering Landmark. The train climbs almost 3,000 feet, features steep grades of up to 3.9% and cliff-hanging turns of 16 degrees. It really is an incredible included tour option.
Hoonah offers a culinary adventure on the ‘In Alaska’s Wildest Kitchen Tour’. You will learn how to prepare seafood dishes before grilling your fish over alder wood, which imparts a unique smoked flavouring because of the natural sugars stored in the wood. The inventive menu includes wild salmon, halibut, Dungeness crab and plenty of other local favorites just plucked from the sea. Of course, the best bit is saved for last, when you eat your culinary masterpiece.
