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.

We just returned from a land and cruise put of Alaska, and it was wonderful.  Denali was great-I think every wild animal knew we were there and came out to greet us as well as Mt McKinley.  The train ride to Denali was exceptional and the guides were very informative and entertaining.  We cruised south on Holland America, and once again were treated like royalty.  The landscape and scenery in Alaska is breathtaking and a trip worth planning for.
