Explore a Raw and Wild Beauty

Jetline is proud to offer a range of bespoke packages that take in some of the most dramatic and memorable places in Alaska. Cruise through the glacial landscape, enjoy fantastic shore excursions and enjoy the hospitality of some of the best vessels in the business. Here are just a few of the stunning places you’ll encounter.


A popular port along the southern coastline of the state, Ketchikan is like a magical door into one of the world’s most spectacular wilderness areas. Set at the entrance of the famous Inside Passage, the scenery is nothing short of jaw dropping, with snow-capped mountains, jewel-coloured lakes, plunging waterfalls and lush, forested slopes. The town itself is touristy, but charming nonetheless, with plenty of reminders of its indigenous heritage and its status as the salmon capital of the state. Along with various nature walks and wandering around the town, one of the best activities is a trip to the Misty Fjords National Monument to get up close and personal to nature in a very memorable way.     


Set a little further along the Inside Passage, Skagway is nestled at the base of a soaring mountainous backdrop. There are numerous opportunities to get out on short hikes, but if you prefer your shore excursions to be a little less energetic, there are plenty of ways to entertain yourself. There are quite a few historic buildings, courtesy of the town’s gold rush heritage, as well as dog-sled tours, salmon runs and the White Pass and Yukon Route Railroad ride. It’s not likely you’ll take on the challenge of the notorious Chilkoot Trail that leads all the way to British Columbia, but it’s good to know it’s there…


Its dramatic glacial backdrop is a stark contrast to Sitka’s lush forests, and its ancient Russian heritage lends it a sense of mystery and deep history. This place is a true nature lover’s paradise and, if you like getting into the great outdoors, there’s no better place to fish, hike, kayak and watch wildlife. Close to town you can visit the Totem Park to get a close look at these intricate pieces of art, or head to the Raptor Centre and Fortress of the Bear to encounter the iconic species. Among the historic attractions of note are St. Michaels Russian Orthodox cathedral, Sheldon Jackson Museum, the Bishop’s House and Baranof Castle Historic Site.
