Grand Alaska Land and Sea Adventure

Dates:  May 24 – June 5, 2021

 13 Days and 20 Meals

After long and dark winters, Alaskans love their summers. You will enjoy the 19 hour days as you begin your tour with an overnight in the Anchorage area and a tour the following day. Denali is the iconic centerpiece of Alaska’s Interior and the #1 reason to combine a cruise to Alaska with an overland adventure. Experience two nights in Denali to really settle in and explore, including the deeper Tundra Wilderness Tour into Denali National Park. Take a step back in time to pan for gold at the historic Gold Dredge 8 in Fairbanks. Stroll along old-time wooden boardwalks connecting frontier-era buildings in the Yukon Territory’s original capital of Dawson City. Travel the Klondike Highway on your way to Whitehorse before riding the Historic White Pass Scenic Railway to your ship. Once we board Holland Cruise Line’s beautiful Koningsdam, we will begin our cruise in Skagway, and journey on to Glacier Bay, Ketchikan, and through the Scenic Inside Passage before arriving in your final destination of Vancouver.

Day 2, May 25, 2021

Enjoy a hot breakfast at our hotel before boarding our private sightseeing coach for a guided tour of the Anchorage area. That afternoon, you will arrive at your downtown hotel and meet your Journey Host to learn about your upcoming adventure. (B)

Day 3-4, May 26-27, 2021

Today we board the McKinley Explorer for a breathtaking ride to Denati National Park. We will stay in a Denali area hotel for two nights. The included Tundra Wilderness tour gives you an up-close view of the mountain and the best wildlife viewing. It is rare not to see some combination of Alaska’s Big Five: grizzly bears, caribou, moose, Dall Sheep and wolves, along with other animals on this expertly guided six- to eight-hour tour. You will also enjoy some free time to explore the area on your own. (B)

Day 5, May 28, 2021

This morning we board our coach for a drive into the “Golden Heart” Fairbanks, Alaska. Here we learn about the city born from Gold Rush fever as we enjoy a historic gold dredge tour. (B)

Dawson City

Day 6-7, May 29-30, 2021

We take a short flight from Fairbanks and arrive to spend 2 nights in the heart of the Klondike Gold Rush, Dawson City, which housed around 30,000 people in the summer of 1898. The town was sliding towards “ghost” status just a year later: A fire had destroyed 117 structures, right as the gold ran out. The community began a re-build in 1960 and along with the community of Bonanza Creek—where Stampeders pried $500 million in gold from the frozen ground—these two cities form the Klondike National Historic Sites, now part of a larger proposed UNESCO World Heritage area. We have ample time to wander this subarctic hotspot, which has retained its 19th-century charm. (B, L)

Day 8, May 31, 2021

Today we travel by coach to the territory’s capital, Whitehorse which stands at Historic Mile 918 of the Alaska Highway and has the world’s lowest level of metropolitan air pollution, according to Guinness World Records 2013. It remains a popular tourist stop for attractions like the Yukon Wildlife Preserve and the natural and cultural insights at the MacBride Museum. (B,L)

Day 9, June 1, 2021

Arrive in Skagway aboard the historic White Pass Scenic Railway, bid your Journey Host farewell, and then embark your ship. Your Cruise Begins!! Board the Holland Cruise Line’s beautiful Koningsdam to relax and unwind as you cruise Alaska. (B,L,D)

Day 10, June 2, 2021

Today we cruise the ice-studded waters of Glacier Bay National Park for a full eight hours as a Park Service Ranger narrates. (B,L,D)

Day 11, June 3, 2021

Today we explore the uniquely Alaskan port of Ketchikan, famous for its rich native culture, salmon fishing, and scenic Misty Fjords. Alaska’s “First City” is so named because it’s the first major landfall for most cruisers as they enter the picturesque fjords of the Inside Passage. Here you can shop for souvenirs, smoked salmon and local art, while exploring gold rush­–era tourist attractions like Dolly’s House Museum. (B,L,D)


Day 12, June 4, 2021

Scenic Cruising the Inside Passage – Alaska’s Inside Passage is a protected network of waterways that wind through glacier-cut fjords and lush temperate rain forests along the rugged coast of Southeast Alaska. Arguably one of the greatest cruising routes in the world, the Inside Passage stretches through stunning landscapes, from Misty Fjords National Monument to famed Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve. Sailing the Inside Passage offers opportunities to spot some of Alaska’s most iconic wildlife, with humpback whales and orca plying the bountiful waters alongside the ships, bald eagles soaring overhead and brown bears lumbering on the shoreline.

Day 13, June 5, 2021

Your Land and Sea Journey concludes this morning in Vancouver. We will fly back later today. (B)

Many of our sightseeing stops/sites require extensive standing, sitting, walking – sometimes on unpaved or cobblestone streets, loading and unloading into horse drawn carriages and/or trolleys.    Sunnyland Travel will not refund or cover any cost of expense incurred for any missed activities due to a participant’s inability to fully participate with the group.  If you require assistance in walking, navigating stairs, etc., you are required to travel with a qualified physically-able companion who can accompany and provide such assistance.  Due to many historic locations, the motor coach is not allowed to stay on site or remain running to provide an alternate shelter for those not able to participate in an event.  Please make sure you read the itinerary fully and call one of our travel consultants if you have any questions.
