If you haven’t been to visit Alaska, there has never been a better time to go! From seeking a midsummer escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, to simply seeing some of Mother Nature’s best, there are countless reasons to visit Alaska in 2017. Here are four of my favorites:
Small Ship Cruises Help You See More
Alaska has been offering spectacular cruises for years, but a growing trend promises more luxury and more meaningful experiences overall.
Today’s small-ship cruises can navigate waterways – such as the Inside Passage – not accessible to many larger ships. This allows you to see wildlife and glaciers up close while taking advantage of the intimate setting and world-class dining offered by yachts and smaller ships.
Hunting and Fishing Doesn’t Always Mean Roughing It
We know what you’re thinking: the words “luxury” and “sportsman” can’t coexist in perfect harmony. While it is true that many places to visit Alaska are remote and only accessible by boat or plane, there is more to the story.
When it comes to experiencing the best in outdoor and sporting activities, small ship cruises again provide a perfect fit. You can often take part in activities such as fishing and paddle boarding, right from the ship itself.
In addition to cruises, our concierge-style travel consultancy can help you find luxurious lodges with convenient access to the outdoor activities you love. It’s no surprise that this type of accommodation has become a top choice for many discerning travelers.
The best of nature and comfort combine beautifully here, showing that much of Alaska is well beyond the “roughing it” reputation you may recall.
Seafood to Die For when your visit Alaska
Without a doubt, Alaska produces some of the best and freshest wild-caught seafood the world has to offer. Also, some of the planet’s finest seafood is imported through Alaska’s ports, so there is no shortage of supply for locals and visitors alike.
Whether you hope to cook or catch it yourself, or simply savor a local chef’s creation, you will definitely be in the right place. We can even arrange for a gourmet cooking class to teach you how to incorporate the day’s catch into a perfect meal. If you prefer, we love to curate individually-designed lists of world-class restaurants to enjoy.
Regardless of your culinary desires, you will come away with a whale of a tale of the delicious foods you’ve borne witness to during your time in Alaska.
Get Away From It All… In Style
At the end of the day, it is the wild, wonderful wilderness that beckons people to Alaska over and over. From gazing at a bright night sky illuminated by the Aurora Borealis to pondering the vastness of Denali, there is something magical about this pristine landscape. It can help you recharge your batteries, return home renewed, and leave you with memories like no other.
Isn’t it time you sat back and let nature’s majesty rejuvenate you?
