Discover Glacier National Park, Hells Canyon & Washington Wine Country with Alaska Cruise
About Washington D.C., District of Columbia
This unique vacation visits some of the most beautiful areas in the U.S., along with the majesty of an Alaskan cruise through the famed Inside Passage. From the most northwesterly point of Seattle, trek deeper into the lush and awe-inspiring Pacific Northwest. A highlight of this vacation will undoubtedly be your stay at Spokane’s historic Davenport Hotel, an architectural masterpiece combining luxury, impressive décor with hand-painted frescos, and contemporary comfort. From here, head to Whitefish and Glacier National Park, Montana, for several days of unbelievable landscapes and a plethora of fun-filled activities, like a BBQ, a cruise around Lake McDonald, and a vintage Red Jammer bus tour to the top of Logan Pass. Also stop in Wallace, where the story of a former brothel reveals some of the town’s colorful history. In Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, a pristine lake greets you, then head to Hells Canyon and the Snake River, the deepest river gorge in North America. Travel the same route as Lewis and Clark along the Snake River into Washington’s wine country, the second-largest producer of U.S. wines. Here you’ll meet some of the locals, learn about their land, and visit a winery for a tour and tasting! Return to Seattle, the perfect jumping-off point for your cruise to the vast territory of Alaska! Marvel at glaciers and witness the amazing spectacle of thunder and spray as tremendous slabs of ice break off and “calve” into the sea. Visit Alaska’s capital, Juneau; charming Sitka; and the totems and native culture of Ketchikan. The impressive landscapes of Hells Canyon, Glacier National Park, and Washington State and incredible cruise through Alaska’s Inside passage make this vacation one of a kind!
