Alaska cruisetours

A cruisetour combines the best of both worlds: an unforgettable Alaska cruise with the premier experience of Denali, the highest mountain peak in North America, for a comprehensive and immersive journey.

Travel in the luxurious glass-domed railcars of the McKinley Explorer train to Denali National Park and Preserve – the crown jewel of Alaska’s interior.

Alaskan animals, one of the most isolated mountain peaks on earth and a thrilling Tundra Wilderness Tour await on your doorstep during your three-night stay at HAL’s own premier McKinley Chalet Resort.

Why not visit the Klondike on a Yukon & Denali Cruise tour? Discover the fascinating gold rush history and spellbinding scenery, enjoying expert insights from your journey host.
