THE GREAT LAND
The gang at Rivers and Oceans were just incredible! They were some of the nicest, knowledgeable, and helpful people we have ever dealt with. They helped to make our travels fun and easy. The arrangements were impeccable and stress free! My wife and I are customers for life!
A place immense in scale and grandeur; wildness remains an Alaska trip’s predominant characteristic. Composed of vastly different regions, climates and landscapes, Alaska is an adventurer’s paradise, offering long days for treks into the wild that will fill even the most seasoned traveler’s heart with awe. Few places on earth are home to such a variety of wildlife including unique species of birds, black and grizzly bears, caribou, moose, mountain sheep and wolves. Huge glaciers, jagged mountain peaks, fields of wildflowers, pristine glacial lakes, and expansive views of the vast open tundra are just a few of the treasures waiting to be discovered through an Alaska expedition cruise and river trip. Experience nature at its peak as you venture deep into a world that only few get to see.
