Day 3: Wrangell.

Home to a little over 2,000 permanent residents, Wrangell is the only town in Alaska to have been under the jurisdiction of three flags and ruled by four nations – the Tlingit, Russia, England, and the United States. Enjoy several options to explore this colorful history, including a guided tour and a trip to the Wrangell Museum. Visit the intriguing state historic park, Petroglyph Beach, which contains the highest concentration of petroglyphs in Southeast Alaska. There is also an optional opportunity to board a high-speed jet boat and navigate through a maze of glistening icebergs en route to the LeConte Glacier. This excursion is available at an additional cost and is dependent on space/permits.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 4: Petersburg & Thomas Bay.

Discover the charming Mitkof Island fishing town of Petersburg. Founded by Norwegian fishermen in the late 1800s, Petersburg is nicknamed Alaska’s “Little Norway.” Experience this Scandinavian culture with a folk dance show by local youth at the iconic Sons of Norway Hall. Later, visit Thomas Bay, a wilderness location shrouded by Alaska Native legends and mysterious stories told by early gold miners. Enjoy a trekking option, such as the Cascade Falls trail or Scenery Cove.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 5: Tracy Arm Fjord & Orca Point Lodge.

Journey through Tracy or Endicott Arm in the Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness, a place the famous naturalist, John Muir, referred to as, “A wild, unfinished Yosemite.” Renowned for its pristine waterfalls, towering icebergs, abundant harbor seals, and granite cliffs that rise from sea level to 4,000 feet, this wilderness is often referred to by locals as one of the most scenic areas in the state. Both of these dramatic glacial fjords offer stunning views of tidewater glaciers. End the day’s adventure with a relaxing evening at Orca Point Lodge, our own exclusive day-lodge on Colt Island. Enjoy the beautiful grounds, beach, and marine life observation tank. Dine on wild Alaska salmon, Alaska crab*, or prime rib from the warmth of the lodge, or nestled next to a beach-side bonfire.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 6: Glacier Bay National Park.

This remarkable national park fjord extends 65 miles, contains eight tidewater glaciers, and provides pristine habitat for a wide-array of wildlife, including both brown and black bears, wolves, mountain goats, Steller sea lions, and hump-back whales. The highlight for many is the Margerie Glacier, known for its dramatic calving displays.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 7: Lisianski Inlet & Pelican.

Transit Lisianski Inlet, a narrow body of water between Yakobi Island and Chichagof Island. These islands are home to dense populations of coastal brown bears and other Alaska wildlife species.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner
