This Week, WIT Agent Gavi is joining a Lindblad Expeditions Cruise to Alaska. It’s a 5-night cruise to discover the unique terrain, oceanography and biology of our northernmost state. As with all Lindblad Expeditions, the cruise will be joined by seasoned and enthusiastic naturalists who will add a real experiential flair to the journey. Their 62-guest ships offer a perfect base for exploration into narrow channels and secluded coves.

Recommended to fly to Sitka a day early, so you can hike the Totem Trail or Raptor Rehabilitation Center. The cruise embarks from Sitka and maneuvers around the mirror-calm bays of Baranof or Chicagof Islands. Next, explore the Icy Strait and the Inian Islands, famous for their abundance of Steller sea lions and quiet kayaking options. Day 4 is a stop in Haines, the adventure capital of Alaska, with ample hikes, cycling, flightseeing excursions or rafting routes. Your penultimate day is spent in the beautiful Tracy Arm, where you can admire the glaciers from the boat or on land. Finally, disembark in downtown Juneau for a restful day before your flight home.
