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.

With much of the travel across the state by seaplane, getting around is half the fun. For lovers of adventure, there are innumerable hikes, mountain trails, caves to explore and rivers to kayak. Abercrombie & Kent will take this huge area with all its natural beauty and design the ultimate personal experience for you.

On your journey allow for a few days in the gateway city of Seattle, an excellent jumping off spot for trips to Alaska, and a haven for coffee, music and lovers of the outdoors.

Talk to one of our experts today about our luxury and tailor made Alaska Holidays 2015, 2016.

At A&K all of our journeys are individually tailored to suit your needs and timescale. However, as a guide, a 12 day luxury Alaska holiday will cost from £6,955 per person based on two adults sharing with flights from the UK and subject to availability.
