    Ketchikan/Alaska/USA

    Ketchikan/Alaska/USA
    Before salmon fishermen began casting their nets here, the indigenous people pursued their own traditions: visit the Saxman Village* to see the vast collection of original totem poles and learn more about catching and processing Alaskan salmon at the Libby Cannery*. Or you can explore the Tongass National Forest*, which has been a protected conservation area since 1907. Formidable fjords, waterfalls and lakes make up the wild beauty of the Misty Fjords*, one of America’s greatest natural treasures, which can only be explored from the air or by water.

    Skagway

    Skagway/Alaska/USA
    The protected log cabins in Skagway are reminiscent of the town’s gold rush past. During that time, the first gold prospectors made their way over the White Pass to follow the Chilkoot Trail to try their luck at finding gold. A trip on the historic Yukon Route Railroad* will let you follow in their footsteps up into the mountains.

    Cruising off Point Adolphus, Chichagof Island, Pelican

    Expedition destination Alaska
    The Gulf of Alaska provides a pristine habitat for sea eagles, whales and seals between the thick forests and mighty glaciers. Enjoy some impressive opportunities to observe your natural surroundings as the EUROPA cruises off Point Adolphus. One of the scarce outposts is Pelican, a small fishing village built entirely on wooden pilings. The EUROPA will then continue at a leisurely place through Yakutat Bay, past some impressive ice formations and right up to the snout of the active Hubbard Glacier. Take a detour to Valdez, Alaska’s most important ice-free port. Some more natural spectacles await you at the foot of the impressive Chenega Glacier: if weather conditions allow, you can approach the glacier in the Zodiacs. Keep a lookout for seals having a rest on the silvery ice floes.
