Introduction

See the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and majestic Alaska like never before! Almost like “planes, trains, automobiles” this tour takes you by way of ship, motorcoach and train through spectacular landscapes and gives you a taste of northwestern cityscapes as well. Begin in Seattle before boarding Holland America’s ms Westerdam to start your incredible Inside Passage cruise. Glide along the Alaska waters to see untouched nature, observe wildlife and explore unforgettable ports of call in the Frontier State, including Ketchikan, Juneau and Sitka. The highlight of this cruise will undoubtedly be Glacier National Park with its massive calving glaciers. Your cruise ends with a quick stop in neighboring Canada and the beautiful Island capitol of Victoria. Disembark in Seattle and hop aboard Amtrak’s Coast Starlight to spend an overnight en route to California Wine Country. Tour the world-famous wine country and get the opportunity to taste some of the region’s delicious wines. Then end your trip by leaving your heart in beautiful San Francisco, the “City by the Bay.”
