Make the most of your vacation with a shore and land excursion that appeals to your interests. Knowledgeable, professional guides lead all excursions and offer special insights into the culture, history, wildlife, and geology of each destination. Discover first-hand how islanders went about the business of growing, harvesting and refining sugar in 18th century Barbados. Take an invigorating mush across a snow-covered glacier aboard an Alaskan dogsled. Or stroll through the maze of tiny streets in Mykonos, the birthplace of Apollo.
Don't just settle for a meal of wild Alaskan seafood: experience it as Alaskans do! In Alaska's Wildest Kitchen is a hands-on tasting session hosted by an experienced Alaskan fisherwoman and wilderness chef. You and your fellow greenhorns will learn what sets Alaskan seafood apart, including local fishing, preserving and cooking techniques, watch an expert filleting demonstration, and even get a chance to grill your own sample of the catch of the day over a custom-made alder-wood grill. One alcoholic beverage and printed recipe cards are included in your tour.
Important: Please remember you have up to 4 days prior to your sail date to purchase your regular shore excursions online. If you are within the 4 days, you will then need to purchase your shore excursions onboard; land excursions would need to be purchased directly through your Tour Director on the land portion of the Alaska Cruisetour. For example, if you are sailing on October 18, you can make Shore & Land Excursion purchases online until October 13.
