Alaskan tour holidays
The largest state of the United States by area is also the country’s most unspoilt and breathtakingly scenic region, with intricate fjords, colossal blue-streaked glaciers, majestic snow-capped mountains and pristine valleys. Roaring, glacier-fed rivers are patrolled by families of grizzly bear, bald eagles soar overhead and whales are frequently spotted in the sparkling coastal waters. A delightful cruise ship plying the stunning coastline of Alaska presents the best and most relaxing vantage point on this natural wonderland. And, as the vessels depart from Vancouver and Seattle, Alaskan cruises combine perfectly with a tour of the highlights of western Canada or the northwest United States of America.
A fascinating cultural heritage awaits discovery from vibrant native communities to onion-domed cathedrals that dates back to the days when this land was under Russian ownership.

However, application to enter the USA under the VWP must be made in advance, using the Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA). An ESTA is needed if entrance to the USA is made internationally by air or sea. If entrance into the USA is made via a land border you will not required to apply for an ESTA, instead you will complete a green I-94 immigration form which will be given to you by the border agent representative.

If your passport currently doesn’t have an integrated chip then it will need to be renewed, as it will no longer be accepted for travel.
From London to Alaska is approx. 9 hours and 30 minutes.
They say that everything's bigger in America... and Alaska is the biggest state of all! Covering more than 663,268 square miles, Alaska is about seven times the size of the United Kingdom. But it's also the least densely populated state, leaving vast stretches of unspoilt nature, full of stunning lakes and mountains, not to mention wildlife like moose, grizzly bears, bald eagles, polar bears, arctic foxes, killer whales and grey whales.
For most visitors to Alaska, one of the best ways to experience the glorious scenery of the state is on Alaskan ocean cruises. From the deck of a ship, you can enjoy panoramic views of majestic cliffs, icebergs and the many small islands that line the coast. You'll also have plenty of chances to disembark and explore some areas on foot, giving you the opportunity to taste local dishes, learn about the history and indigenous peoples and do a bit of shopping.
