On this, you can discover wilderness on the grandest scale. Ice-capped mountains are the backdrop for a network of fjords carved by glaciers Cynthia tell us before going into more detail about this specific adventure. “The world’s largest temperate rainforest blankets hundreds of islands that dot the Inside Passage, the sheltered saltwater between the Open Pacific and the Coast Range. Bears, whales, seals and eagles dominate these environs, where human presence is only very slight. The Safari Explorer, a luxurious private yacht, meanders through the Tongass National Forest—the largest in the United States. On your way to view massive glaciers, enter some of the world’s deepest fjords to hike, kayak and explore the natural wonders of this stunning landscape. “Your fabulous Alaska Adventure includes luxury accommodation, activities and transfers as well as the services of two Natural Habitat Adventures Expedition Leaders and a 15-member crew. On day one, you will arrive at Juneau, where you’ll be met at baggage claim by local guides and transferred to the Safari Explorer, docked in downtown Juneau. Upon boarding, the captain and crew of the Safari Explorer welcome you aboard with smiles and champagne. Begin cruising the scenic channels of the Inside Passage, while relaxing with hors d’oeuvres and favourite cocktails and getting to know new shipmates. Anchor in a secluded wilderness bay for dinner, fine wine and pristine scenery. “On days two to three, you can enjoy the delights of the Glacier Bay National Park. Cruise close by Time is the most precious luxury in life. When it’s time to get away, you should enjoy every minute to the fullest.
