A small percentage of visitors who cruise to Alaska for Denali venture further into the wilderness that is the Yukon. After the “must-see,” there’s a whole lot of “seldom-seen” in the territory that lies beyond.
The mountain is massive, rising over 20,000 feet. Spotting moose, caribou, Dall sheep or grizzlies in the wild is equally monumental. No wonder Denali National Park is on every Alaska cruise goer’s must-see list.
The blue of glacial ice glistens in the sunlight. A pod of porpoises surfaces, then disappears. Snow that fell centuries ago moves from mountains to the sea. Welcome to Alaska, the 49th state of wonder with Holland America Cruises.
