Viking Cruises has announced two new cruise extensions to its 11-day Alaska and the Inside Passage ocean itinerary. Guests can now choose to maximise the value of their overseas flight and enjoy additional days pre- or post-cruise to explore more of Alaska’s wilderness and indigenous culture with either a three-day extension to Anchorage or six-day Denali Explorer with Anchorage & Talkeetna.
The six-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 a dome railcar, visit Lake Hood – the world’s largest seaplane base, and the Alaska Aviation Museum, drink in the views from atop Mt. Alyeska and have a two-night stay in First-Class Denali Park Village (or similar).
“Alaska is vast, breathtaking and wild, and as a destination it’s a great fit with Viking guests who are constantly looking to explore and venture beyond the familiar”, says Lubica Sibikova, Product Manager for Viking Cruises Australia and New Zealand. “We know that Australians and New Zealanders are interested in learning about other cultures, their flora and wildlife, and taking in wide open landscapes. Alaska is all that, and we want to offer our guests a meaningful immersion for a full experience.”
11-day Alaska and the Inside Passage cruise from Vancouver to Seward or vice versa is sailing between May and August 2019 from $6495 per person. This ocean cruise features seven guided tours in Canada and the United States’ Alaska. Book between 1 October and 31 December 2017 and save $1000 per couple.
Add the three-day cruise extension in Anchorage from $799 per person, or the six-day cruise extension Denali Explorer with Anchorage & Talkeetna from $4399 per person.
