What to Expect

Activity Level

Takes into consideration the physical requirements for each of the trips, walking, hiking, climbing in and out of safari vehicles etc.
           Moderately Strenuous

Travelers should be able to climb 80 stairs consecutively, plus walk at least 4 miles over some steep slopes and loose or uneven surfaces without difficulty. Walks typically last for 4 or more hours at a time. Altitude can range from 7,000 to 9,000 feet.

Pacing

Takes into consideration the length of bus rides, flights, number of destinations in the number of days
           Moderate

Pacing is sometimes robust, and may include several long days with early hotel departures, active sightseeing and evening activities. Opportunities for daytime rest and rejuvenation may be limited on most days. May include significant motor coach time, two or more on-tour flights, and/or occasional travel via non-traditional means such as safari vehicles, Zodiac ship tenders, rickshaws/pedi-cabs, etc.

PACING:

  • This is a moderately strenuous paced itinerary
  • Look forward to 12 nights cruising aboard the m/s Roald Amundsen, 1 night in Anchorage and 1 night in Vancouver

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS:

  • This adventure features numerous shore landings, with activities including whale watching, kayaking, hiking, and more.
  • Sightseeing shore excursions in Alaska require walking on some uneven terrain, including in some natural parks
  • Travelers should be aware of their surroundings and wear proper walking attire

TERRAIN & TRANSPORTATION:

  • You’ll primarily visit small coastal towns that are both quaint, walkable, and reliant on the local environment
  • But please expect some walking on rugged paths and slippery and/or icy terrain
  • Some sightseeing will happen on deluxe motorcoaches or school buses with guides

CLIMATE:

  • On average, expect temperatures to rise in the spring. Vancouver has an average high in the low 60s in May/June, while Anchorage sees an average in the high 50s those same months
  • Since the weather is unpredictable, please check weather sites online for 10-day forecasts closer to your departure date to plan your packing accordingly
