Seward, Alaska To Tokyo - Japan
Join us as we visit six ports in fourteen days, from Alaska’s majestic scenery to high-octane Tokyo. Go bear-watching in Kodiak’s wildlife refuge, or birding in peaceful Dutch Harbor, the home port of “The Deadliest Catch”. Tour pristine parks, kayak, take a scenic helicopter tour, and learn all about Russia’s place in Alaskan history at the Baranov Museum. You’ll visit another kind of frontier in Petropavlavsk, a Russian 1800s-era trading center. Learn the town’s history at the local museum, visit the mind-boggling Valley of the Geysers or view wildlife on the amazing, volcano-strewn Kamchatka Peninsula. A few days later you’ll greet the day on Hokkaido, Japan’s northernmost island. Be on the lookout for red-crested white cranes at the protected wetlands of Kushiro-shitsugen National Park, and discover deep volcanic caldera lakes at Shikotsu-Tōya National Park.
Day by day itinerary
Travel to the Kenai Fjords National Park to hike or ski amongst its beautiful mountains. Kayak the tide pools along the fjords, and explore the Exit Glacier while mushing your own dog sledding team. Tour the rich waters of Resurrection Bay, join local anglers to fish for Coho salmon and halibut. Shaped by time, earthquakes, and ocean storms, Seward’s unfolding beauty is yours to explore.
One of the top fishing ports in the U.S. for salmon, halibut, and crab, Kodiak is also a history buff’s dream—from the blue cupolas of the Holy Resurrection Orthodox Cathedral and Fort Abercrombie State Historical Park to the Alutiiq Museum and Archeological Repository. Outdoor enthusiasts will love watching whales, birds, and bears, or exploring Kodiak by Jeep, ATV, or mountain bike.
With its breathtaking winds, stunning Russian architecture, and rugged maritime history, Dutch Harbor is unlike any seaside town you’ve ever encountered. Stop by the Church of the Holy Ascension—a 17th-century Russian Orthodox cathedral—explore the many hiking trails throughout Sitka Spruce Park, or get up-close and personal with the humpback whales when you take a sea-kayak out on the water.
Nestled amongst a string of five volcanoes on the shores of Avacha Bay, Petropavlovsk is the ideal destination to get away from it all while immersing yourself in natural surroundings. The environment lends itself to some breathtaking and unique outdoor activities including climbing volcanoes, relaxing in natural hot springs and fishing in wild rivers.
Located on eastern Hokkaido, Kushiro is an historic port with a strong fishing industry. “The City of Mist” has a compelling history that reaches back to the legacy of its indigenous people, the Ainu. It’s also widely known for its stunning natural scenery—particularly Akan National Park and Lake Mashu—wildlife, hiking, bird watching, and fresh seafood like Hokkaido crabs, salmon, and octopus.
Indulge your love of urban convenience and your desire for natural beauty in this city. From tastes to satisfy your cravings to hot springs and history, every spot and every season has something to offer.
The world’s largest metropolitan area, Tokyo is an unforgettable experience for everyone. Tour the best ramen and sushi restaurants, visit Akihabara Electric Town to discover cutting-edge gadgets and games, and scale the Tokyo City View—a breathtaking observation deck on the 52nd floor of Mori Tower. For a change of pace, visit the Meiji Shrine to take a serene stroll along the many walking paths.
