On this luxurious voyage with Silversea you’ll have the chance to see this spectacular part of the world by sea and by train, including the opportunity to visit places like the arty town of Homer, or their ‘big city’ Anchorage. With a population of over half of the whole state, Anchorage is their biggest city, but when the entire state has a population of just over 700,000 then you realise that Alaska is a pretty compact place.
Keep your eyes peeled and your camera at the ready because this is your chance to see some incredible wildlife; maybe you’ll be fortuitous enough to see bears on Kodiak Island. But Alaskan wildlife isn’t just for the eyes - it’s not uncommon to hear the shrill cry of an eagle puncturing the deafening silence of the wilderness, lingering in the air for what seems eternal.
The food is something to get excited about, too. Incredibly fresh fish can be found all over the place; everybody should try Alaskan salmon and, of course, the local favourite: halibut.
Whether you are an adventurer, wildlife lover or food fanatic, Alaska will be able to fulfil your desires. The great outdoors doesn’t get much greater than this; filled with breath-taking beauty and wondrous wildlife, this is America’s Last Frontier.
