Viking Cruises has announced two new cruise extensions to its popular 11-day Alaska & the Inside Passage ocean itinerary. Guests can now choose to maximise the value of their overseas flight and enjoy additional days pre or post their cruise to explore more of Alaska’s unspoilt wilderness and indigenous culture with either a 3-day extension to Anchorage or the more in-depth 6-day Denali Explorer with Anchorage & Talkeetna.
The 6-day Denali Explorer with Anchorage & Talkeetna cruise extension travels deep into the Denali National Park to learn about some of the park’s residents – moose, caribou, Dall sheep and more. Guests will enjoy a scenic journey to Anchorage on board an impressive dome railcar, visit Lake Hood – the world’s largest seaplane base, and the Alaska Aviation Museum, take in awe-inspiring views from atop Mt. Alyeska and a two-night stay in First-Class Denali Park Village (or similar).
11-day Alaska & the Inside Passage cruise from Vancouver to Seward or vice versa, sailing between May and August 2019 from $6,495 per person. This ocean cruise features seven guided tours in Canada and the United States’ Alaska. Book between 01 October and 31 December 2017 and save $1,000 per couple.
Add the 3-day cruise extension in Anchorage from $799 per person, or the 6-day cruise extension Denali Explorer with Anchorage & Talkeetna from $4,399 per person.
