Kamchatka to Alaska

We fly via Seoul to Vladivostok to visit the highlights of this historic naval port city and take a cruise past the Voroshilov Military battery to the Popov Island Marine Park. We then fly to Petropavlovsk on the remote Kamchatka Peninsula for five nights at the Antarius Hotel in Paratunka to visit Avacha Volcano, cruise on Petropavlovsk Bay in search of puffin and Orca, and take two helicopter excursions – to the Valley of the Geysers, Uzon Caldera & Nalychevo Nature Park, and to Kurilskoye Lake and the Yuzhno-Kamchatskiy Sanctuary which has the largest concentration of brown bears.

From Petropavlovsk we take the weekly flight to Anchorage from where we travel by road to Knik Glacier, Glenallen and Fairbanks. We cross the Arctic Circle by light aircraft to Utqiaġvik (formerly known as Barrow) and Deadhorse, then drive back to Fairbanks along the Dalton Highway, through the Brooks Range via Coldfoot. We stay two nights at Denali National Park then take the Alaska Railroad back to Anchorage.

From Juneau we board the American Constellation for a 15-day cruise via Skagway, Glacier Bay, Wrangell, Ketchikan and the Inside Passage to Seattle.
