Today’s winning Alaska Cruise and Tour goes to Holland America Line.
Attention to all history buffs and nature enthusiasts! You have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the fabled tales of the gold rush while also walking in the footsteps of the resilient pioneers who chased their dreams. Unlike our modern comforts of technical layers and Gore-Tex during winter, the miners endured harsh conditions which are showcased in the Dawson City Museum. Even if trains aren't your thing, the Klondike Mines Railway locomotives on display in the museum are sure to captivate you. Numerous historical buildings vividly bring this era to life, although the negative impact on the environment from tailings is also apparent. My companions and I rode the picturesque White Pass Railway from Skagway to White Horse. The idea of hiking the 33-mile Chilkoot Trail with survival and mining equipment seemed unreal. Luckily, this tour by Holland America Cruise Line combines a short cruise, rail, comfortable motorcoach, and Yukon flight. Exploring far-off destinations was made easy by Holland America. I am grateful for their moderately sized ship, too. A few years back, I went on a group trip that was so memorable that we still reminisce about it to this day. You have the option to either start or end your trip with a cruise, depending on whether you prefer to wrap up your journey with a tour of Denali National Park or unwind on the cruise after exploring. Get together with your loved ones or buddies and start planning this adventure today. Feel free to ask me for tips on finding moose near Fairbanks!
I would love to help you with this.
