The Inside Passage holidays

Glacier Bay, Inside Passage, Alaska
Mr Krinkle

Alaska’s Inside Passage is famed for its spectacular scenery, made up of deep fjords and narrow channels, scattered with forest-clad islands and surrounded by snow-capped mountains and calving glaciers. Its natural beauty is matched by its abundant wildlife, as the area is a prime habitat for bald eagles, porpoises, sea lions and whales.

Throughout the waterways lie coastal communities, accessible only by sea or by air, including the state capital of Juneau. These isolated cities provide a fascinating glimpse into Alaska’s multicultural heritage, with a mixture of influences including Native Alaskan, Russian, Norwegian and American.

Southeast Alaska is home to Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian Native Alaskans and evidence of their history can be seen in the Totem Parks at Ketchikan and Sitka, as well as in the ancient petroglyphs at Wrangell and Petersburg. The fishing port of Petersburg is also famed for its Norwegian ancestry, and celebrates its founders annually with a 'Little Norway Festival'.

Heading north is the former Russian colonial capital of Sitka, with its unmistakably eastern-style architecture providing a bizarre contrast to the city’s totem poles. But it is further north still that the main draw card of the region lies. Glacier Bay National Park is comprised of a number of fjords, enclosed by the tallest coastal mountains in the world and fed by no less than 16 active and pristine glaciers. Don’t forget your camera!
