Inside Passage
Region

“Una excursión en chárter es una excelente forma de ver los famosos glaciares de Alaska”

Shaped by the staggering force of massive glaciers millions of years ago, Alaska’s Inside Passage boasts wildlife-filled fjords and lush island scenery — habitat for bald eagles, sea lions, porpoises and whales. Its mountains are carpeted with majestic forests. Inside Passage Alaska is home to Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian Indians whose history is reflected in towering totem poles. Russian settlers left a legacy of onion-domed churches gleaming with icons.

Just got back from a week in Southeast Alaska. We really lucked out!  Had 5 days of sushine which the locals said was cause to declare town holidays - it was more than they had all summer!  Even with normal Alaska weather the trip would have been excellent.  We flew into Juneau - did a Tracy Arm day trip one day (beautiful glacier and millions of icebergs - some HUGE!, and of course seals, whales, eagles and a bear!), did the Robert Mtn Tram another day (beautiful views - saw mtn goats and a bear), did a town walking tour and shopping the 3rd day.  Then we took the Alaska Marine Highway fast ferry (the Fairweather!) to Haines - did a sunset bear viewing tour up the Chikoot river (saw many eagles, several seals and 7 grizzly bears).   Took the Chilkat Fast Ferry to Skagway - did the White Pass and Yukon RR summit trip (saw many mtn goats), next day did a day bus trip to the Emeral Lake in the Yukon (stopped for wonderful BBQ chicken meal, amazing taxidermy museum and visit with some working sled dogs).  Returned to Juneau via the Fairweather and flew home the next morning.  Would strongly recommend this method of travel - avoided the crowds from the cruise ships, ate and drank when and where we wanted, and enjoyed meeting and taking time with the friendly and accomodating locals!
