More Glacier Bay With Un-Cruise In 2015

Trip planning for Alaska starts earlier this year, with the news from our favourite small-ship operator Un-Cruise Adventures’ of its adventure cruise schedule for 2015. 

It is also extremely timely, as it allows us to remind you that our big re-launch edition - out today! - features Alaska on the cover and the delights of up-close-and-personal travel in this region with Un-Cruise.

The company's seven vessels, carrying 22-88 guests, will offer a total of 115 departures from April to September, with adventure activities, culture, history, wildlife and remote wilderness themes featuring on 10 itineraries ranging from one to three weeks duration.

More importantly, travellers with the hugely popular Glacier Bay National Park on their wish list have even more opportunities to experience the area on a small ship next year as no less than 87 out of 115 departures will visit the park for one or more days of in-depth exploration, most including off-boat adventures of hiking and kayaking.

The popularity of the Northern Passages & Glacier Bay itinerary between Juneau and Sitka (and reverse) spurred the line to add more departures to make for 36 in total in 2015, with 2 are spent inside Glacier Bay National Park. Other areas explored include Icy Strait, Chichagof Island, Baranof Island, Peril Strait and Sergius Narrows. The Active Adventure is available on the Wilderness Adventurer, Wilderness Discoverer and Wilderness Explorer. Rates begin at $2,095 per person, double occupancy.
