For those with a naturalist streak, few places on earth compare with the wonders of Southwest Alaska. Brown bears amble along the hills and plains, and more than 240 bird species inhabit Alaska’s Southwest region. The region’s terrain ranges from a landscape of volcanoes in Katmai National Park created by the 1912 eruption of the Novarupta volcano, to the windswept Aleutian Islands that make a 1,000-mile sweep toward Asia.

EUGENE TRIPP
Great experience again.  We travelled to Alaska on the Sapphire Princess from Vancouver.  Only the fourth time we have done this cruise.  After arriving in Whitter and boarding the bus we headed towards Anchorage.  We stayed another week in Anchorage and went to Portage Glacier (which is almost nonexistant) and Alyeska. Closer to Anchorage we visited the Native Heritage Center and Alaska Wild Berry Products.  The Wild Berry Products has a chocolate waterfall inside their store.  All in all it was a great trip.  We would like to do this again, but cruise from Anchorage south and end up in Vancouver.  It may be a few years yet.
