Vancouver, Canada

Overnight hotel stay in Vancouver, Canada Sun 04 Aug 2024

Vancouver, Canada

A panoramic view of Vancouver in autumn

After an enjoyable breakfast at your hotel, we will take you on a city tour to take in the main highlights of fabulous Vancouver.   

The excursion will end at the pier where MS Roald Amundsen awaits you. Settle in and take your time to get to know the ship, locating the Science Center, gym and restaurants.  

Our knowledgeable Expedition Team will lead the way on excursions and landings. Get to know them and enjoy a tasty welcome dinner. Afterwards you can kick back and relax, your grand Alaska adventure is underway.

Alaska Inside Passage

Inside Passage Tue 06 Aug 2024

Alaska Inside Passage

The Inside Passage coastal route takes us through the great North American Pacific Fjordland, a protected stretch of water over 930 miles long. Unlike other cruises that pass through at night, you’ll be able to view the sublime scenery in all its glory during the day.

Our smaller expedition ship allows us to reach areas that larger vessels can’t, meaning that you can explore the breathtaking scenery of lesser-traveled channels. Keep your cameras and binoculars close at hand to spot dolphins, porpoises, orcas, and humpback whales.

Misty Fiords

Misty Fjords National Monument Wed 07 Aug 2024

Misty Fiords

Part of the Tongass National Forest, Misty Fjords is a pristine wilderness of evergreens, waterfalls and snow-capped peaks. The revered naturalist writer John Muir described the area as one of the most beautiful places he’d ever seen.  

Weather permitting, you'll join the Expedition Team to tour Misty Fjords in our small expedition boats, or take kayaks out. 

Misty Fjords is rich in wildlife. You’ll scan for mountain goats, bears and moose as you explore. The waters are home to Pacific salmon, otters, sea lions, harbour seals, orcas and Dall’s porpoises. Skywards, you might spot herons and Bald Eagles.

Wrangell National Park

Wrangell, Alaska Thu 08 Aug 2024

Wrangell National Park

We continue cruising the Alaskan islands to Wrangell. Only a mile out of town, the incredible Petroglyph Beach is where you'll seek out the ancient rock carvings among the sand. 

Visit the local museum to learn more about Wrangell's fascinating past. Now part of the United States, it was once governed by Britain, Russia and the Tlingit people. Cross to Shakes Island, where the Chief Shakes Tribal House and totem poles tell the story of the Indigenous Tlingit people.  

Hikers will enjoy the nature trails, surrounded by alluring scenery at the mouth of Stikine River, and the foot of Mount Dewey to the edge of the rainforest.

A panoramic view of Sitka

Sitka, Alaska Fri 09 Aug 2024

A panoramic view of Sitka

Surrounded by Tongass National Forest, Sitka is only accessible by sea or air. Get out on deck for stunning views of the Sisters Mountains and Mount Edgecumbe volcano.  

Discover Sitka's fascinating history with our Expedition Team. Inhabited by the Tlingit people for 10,000 years, it was occupied by Russia in 1804 before being sold to America after the Crimean War. Today, Sitka blends all three cultures.  

Visit the Russian Orthodox cathedral and Russian Bishop's House. Admire ornate Haida and Tlingit totem poles at Sitka National Historical Park, a real highlight, or enjoy a walking trail through the forest to the ocean.

Icy Bay, Alaska

Icy bay Sat 10 Aug 2024

Icy Bay, Alaska

You'll experience a fantastic expedition day in Icy Bay today. Three glaciers – Guyot, Yahtse and Tyndall – regularly calve into the bay. If conditions allow, you’ll explore the bay in our small expedition boats or by kayak, immersing you in the area’s remarkable beauty. 

Wildlife abounds in the Gulf of Alaska, offering unrivalled photography opportunities. Humpback whales, orcas, Stellar sea lions, sea otters and harbour seals lazing on floating chunks of ice are often seen in these waters.

MS Roald Amundsen, Hurtigruten

Gulf Of Alaska Sun 11 Aug 2024

MS Roald Amundsen, Hurtigruten

Your cruise continues across the Gulf of Alaska. It's the ideal time to enjoy onboard facilities such as the infinity pool, hot tubs, and sauna. Go for a run, hit the gym, or enjoy a massage in the spa.  

In the Science Center, the Expedition Team invite you to join lectures about the region’s wildlife, geology, glaciology, history and culture.  

Relax in the Explorer Lounge & Bar and share a drink with your fellow guests, or just sit back and enjoy the view. See if you can spot all three species of North Pacific albatross. The Laysan and Black-footed Albatross are often sighted, but the Short-tailed Albatross is harder to spot.

A brown bear trying to catch salmon in Kodiak

Kodiak, Alaska Mon 12 Aug 2024

A brown bear trying to catch salmon in Kodiak

Kodiak Island got its nickname the ‘Emerald Isle’, due to its Spruce forests and grasslands, and it's the second-largest island in the US.

The island’s most famous inhabitants are Kodiak brown bears. Around 3,500 of them live in the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge, which covers two-thirds of the island.  

We’ll search for these powerful creatures in their natural habitat, marvelling at their size and grace from the safety of our small expedition boat. This perspective offers a rare glimpse into the lives of these bears against the backdrop of Alaska’s breathtakingly rugged landscape. 

Katmai, Alaska

Katmai, Alaska Tue 13 Aug 2024

Katmai, Alaska

Your adventure continues in the four million–acre Katmai National Park, which has over a dozen active volcanoes. Katmai is home to  more than 2,000 protected brown bears – the largest concentration in the world.  

Accompanied by an experienced bear guard, we'll be safely scouting for bears from the deck or in our small expedition boats. They might be foraging for berries, digging for clams or catching fish in the stream. 

Depending on conditions, we might visit either Geographic Harbor, Kinak Bay or Kukak Bay. Keep your eyes open for sea otters, seabirds and humpback whales.

Chignik, Alaska, USA

Alaska Peninsula Wed 14 Aug 2024

Chignik, Alaska, USA

The Alaska Peninsula is an untamed wilderness and a haven for wildlife. The region is characterised by its raw coastal landscapes, towering mountains and secluded bays.  

Join your Expedition Team for close exploration of hidden bays and inlets along the shoreline, offering the opportunity to scout for bears, Bald Eagles, and marine species like sea otters and humpback whales. Learn about the geological evolution of the region, appreciating how natural forces have sculpted the unique topography around you. 

Unga, Alaska, USA

Unga Village, Alaska Thu 15 Aug 2024

Unga, Alaska, USA

Wild and deserted, Unga Village is an abandoned yet picturesque settlement on the southern end of Unga Island.  

It was settled by Aleuts in 1833 but was abandoned in 1969 as subsistence fishing proved insufficient to support living here. Today, the few wooden buildings that remain are the only evidence that people once lived here.  

A carpet of pink lousewort,  fireweed and other wildflowers surround the abandoned shacks as nature has gradually taken over.  Experience the eerie beauty of this place during a nature landing with our small expedition boats.

A panoramic view of boats passing through Dutch Harbor

Dutch Harbour, Alaska Fri 16 Aug 2024

A panoramic view of boats passing through Dutch Harbor

With a volcano as its backdrop, America's largest fishing port – Dutch Harbor – is a fascinating place to visit. Here, you’ll learn about the local Indigenous Unungan people at the Museum of the Aleutians. Visit the Russian Orthodox Cathedral or tour the WWII museum commemorating the battle that took place here in 1942.  

Scout for Bald Eagles and puffins in the skies. Foxes, lemmings and wild horses thrive on land and whales, sea lions and porpoises in the waters. Dutch Harbor is where the reality television series The Deadliest Catch was filmed, following crab fishermen at work under extreme conditions.

MS Roald Amundsen, Hurtigruten

At sea Sat 17 Aug 2024

MS Roald Amundsen, Hurtigruten

Part of being on an expedition cruise is taking time to connect with the sights and sounds of the world around you. A day at sea lets you do just that. Sit back and take in the panoramic views from our Explorer Lounge & Bar, from the infinity pool or from the outdoor hot tubs.  

Keep scanning the seas and skies for puffins, auklets, and murrelets, especially closer to the coast. If you’re lucky, you might glimpse the Red-legged Kittiwake, only found in this part of the world. 

You'll learn more about the region's geography, climate and birdlife from the Expedition Team in the Science Center.

St Paul Island, Alaska, USA

St. Paul Island, Alaska Sun 18 Aug 2024

St Paul Island, Alaska, USA

The windswept island of St Paul is home to the largest Aleut community in the US, numbering around 400. You can visit the historical remains of barabaras here – traditional dwellings built half-underground to protect against the sea winds.  

St Paul is also designated an Important Bird Area, and around 300 species of migrating birds use it as a resting point. Scan for Horned and Tufted Puffins, the Pribilof Sandpiper and the rare Red-legged Kittiwake.  

On the shore, you may find northern fur seals waddling and playing – half the world's population of these charming animals live on these islands.

St. Matthew Island, Alaska

St. Matthew Island, Alaska Mon 19 Aug 2024

St. Matthew Island, Alaska

Part of the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge, 200 miles from the nearest village, St Matthew Island is wild, remote and isolated. You'll see traces of abandoned buildings between black sand beaches and wildflower-dotted tundra. A few hardy souls have tried – and failed – to make a home here.  

Today, the only inhabitants are birds, including thousands of puffins, murres and cormorants. On our nature landing, if you’re lucky, you’ll catch sight of the rare McKay’s Bunting, which breeds almost exclusively here. And listen out for the sound of the singing vole, named after its unusual warning cry.

MS Roald Amundsen, Hurtigruten

Crossing the Bering Sea Tue 20 Aug 2024

MS Roald Amundsen, Hurtigruten

As we cruise the Bering Sea, you'll have Russia to the west and the United States to the east.  

Natural wonders abound here, so keep an eye out for humpback whales, and seabirds wheeling through the skies. 

This is your last full sea day, so relax and enjoy your time on board. The Expedition Team will recap the highlights of your Alaskan adventure, and you can continue your journey of discovery in the Science Centre. 

A panoramic view of cloudy Nome

Nome, Alaska Wed 21 Aug 2024

A panoramic view of cloudy Nome

Prospectors first came to Nome in 1898, and people still hunt for gold here today. You'll see evidence of the Gold Rush all around, including abandoned dredges, turn-of-the-century steam engines and old railroad tracks, lending the town a unique atmosphere. 

Nome was also the end point of three of Roald Amundsen's great polar expeditions, including an attempt by air to reach the North Pole in 1926.  

Naturally, Nome is a fitting place to bid farewell to our own MS Roald Amundsen, before flying back to Vancouver, where you will enjoy an overnight stay.
