Departing June 30, August 4, & September 1, 2014 * 17 Days from $3,995 per person.
A visual feast with San Francisco, Yosemite National Park, the Cascade Mountains, Seattle, Vancouver, the Inside Passage with Glacier Bay National Park, Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, Seward, Denali, Anchorage, and the McKinley Explorer Train all in one exquisite holiday.
There can be no finer way to see Alaska than by ship and train, and no finer way to begin such an adventure than with a full three nights in San Francisco including a full-day train excursion the magnificent Yosemite National Park. From San Francisco, we travel in great style aboard our own vintage 1940's Streamliner Train, the 'Great Western Limited' featuring the panoramic "Vista-Dome", followed by two full nights in Seattle before transferring to Vancouver to begin our epic Alaska Adventure.
Rare in these days, is the ability combine all such elements into one single holiday, and rarer still, the opportunity to travel aboard one of the last remaining Vista-Dome trains in the Country. Limited to only 48 lucky guests, these departures are certain to sell out quickly.
