Ketchikan, Junean, Skagway and Sitka tend to be the most popular ports of call for cruises to Alaska. These towns offer fishing, wildlife tours, and great shopping. You'll find there's no shortage of things to do on your Alaska vacation.

But don't stop there -- add an interior land tour to complete your Alaska vacation. See Mount McKinley, the largest mountain in North America at 22,000 feet, or take a scenic train ride through the stunning inland scenery of Alaska. Most of these land tours begin in Anchorage and are added to one-way 7 night cruises.

You could also visit Denali National Park which is the most popular destination in the interior of Alaska. There you will see spectacular vista, tundra, grizzly bears, moose, sheep, and more wildlife.

Worried about the weather? During the summer months, temperatures fall in the mid 60s, making for a pleasant trip. At times, temperatures can be even higher than the mid 60s or 70s, especially inland. Dressing in layers is your best bet.
