    Board the Wilderness Explorer for a memorable voyage of discovery around Alaska. Various itineraries are available, with the longest cruise lasting for an incredible 21 nights and sailing between Juneau and Sitka. See a fascinating selection of wildlife and dramatic scenery, and enjoy a cultural trip to a Tlingit village. Highlights include Glacier Bay National Park, Misty Fjords National Monument, Behm Canal, Tongass National Forest, and the islands of Baranof, Chichagof, and South Marble. Cruises between Ketchikan and Sitka last for 14 nights, and a two-week round trip is also possible from Juneau. Explore the eastern or western coves of the Inner Reaches, combine Glacier Bay with the Inner Passage, or sail between Seattle and Alaska to combine the waters of two US states and a small section of Canada.
