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.
Stroll along the harbor front to your awaiting boat to enjoy a scenic ride through the Stavanger Archipelago into the Lysefjord. Cutting a path of almost 65 kilometers into the country, the fjord is flanked by steep mountains. Proceed through the Lysefjord to one of Norway's spectacular wonders, Preikestolen, the Pulpit Rock. During your tour you will make a stop for tea/coffee and waffles at the beautiful Lysefjord Center. Cruising back to Stavanger, you will have a nice view over the city.
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.
