Seattle (10 hrs) and then onto Anchorage (3 hrs 40) or Juneau (2 hrs 30)

Pristine waters, wild and dramatic landscape, amazing wildlife and sheer emptiness are the major draw cards for visitors to Alaska. This largest state of the US is still a new destination for many British travellers and remains an undiscovered gem.

Abercrombie & Kent will take this huge area with all its natural beauty and design the ultimate personal experience for you.
