For over 40 years, we’ve been sharing the remarkable wonder of Southeast Alaska with adventurous guests, and now’s your chance to head deep into this authentic wilderness. Aboard the 100-guest National Geographic Venture, sail through fast-moving channels where whales return to feed year after year and bears, sea lions, and eagles can be spotted in their natural habitat. Get a closer view of curious wildlife among electric blue icebergs on a cruise by Zodiac; then spend a full day exploring Glacier Bay National Park.

Make the expedition as active as you choose, joining a different naturalist in exploring each day for more viewpoints and learning. Go for a hike in the wild remote areas of Tongass National Forest by special permit, kayak into secluded inlets, and discover Alaska’s seldom-seen, vibrant marine life revealed by our undersea specialist. Your next great adventure among the mist-shrouded fjords and tidewater glaciers is calling.
