By land. By sea. By experts. We are Alaska.
When it comes to exploring Alaska, few experiences come close to the myriad adventures offered by Holland America Line. Widely regarded as the ‘Alaska Experts’ by seasoned travellers around the world, Holland America Line boasts unrivalled experience and insider knowledge, thanks to its 70-plus year history and expert knowledge. Look forward to seeing Alaska in all its iconic, authentic glory.
Pioneers of the Great Land
Holland America Line’s ties to Alaska run deep, with adventurous travellers sailing their ships for over 70 years, even before Alaska became a state!
Indeed, Holland America Line pioneered premium Alaskan cruising and laid the foundation for what would become one of the first tour companies in Alaska. It was also the first to combine an Alaska cruise with inland tours.
Today it continues to forge paths with expansive itineraries that showcase the best of the Great Land, both on shore and on board.
In early explorations, a journey across Alaska and the Yukon was cold, hard and fraught with danger. For the Holland America Line guest, it’s elegant, comfortable and convenient. Weekend departures make planning a breeze, and because Holland America Line owns and manages multiple aspects of your Alaska experience, you can expect seamless and unsurpassed attention to detail at every touchpoint.
In addition to its fleet of spacious, elegant ships that are perfectly sized to bring you closer to Alaska’s wonders, Holland America Line owns hotels and resorts in Anchorage, Dawson, Fairbanks, Skagway and the aforementioned McKinley Chalet Resort near the entrance to Denali National Park and Preserve, as well as the iconic McKinley Explorer® luxury domed railcars. With all the transportation and luggage transfers handled for you, you’re free to simply relax and enjoy every moment of your journey.
Unique Alaskan Itineraries
With award-winning, immersive itineraries visiting distinctive and captivating ports, Holland America Line gets you closer to the real Alaska, with more options for viewing glaciers than any other cruise line.
Its expertly curated onboard programming and onshore excursions showcase the best of Alaska’s native culture, wildlife and history.
And, an authorised concessioner of Glacier Bay National Park, Holland America Line is one of the few cruise lines that is privileged to cruise these breathtaking waters.
Cruise through Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, embark on a Tundra Wilderness Tour deep into Denali National Park and Preserve, or follow in the footsteps of fortune-seekers across the Yukon Territory.
Thanks to long-time partnerships with local experts, and superior itinerary planning expertise, you will enjoy an unrivalled perspective of this Great Land, with three distinct collections.
The Premiere Denali Experience
Holland America Line offers a Denali National Park experience like no other.
A stay at McKinley Chalet Resort, just outside the gates of Denali National Park, will be etched in your memory forever. Its spacious new Junior Suites boast private balconies and extra amenities such as S’mores kits for evenings around the campfire.
In the centre of this exclusive 60-acre resort, you will find Denali Square™, a bustling hub alive with nature talks, music, restaurants, bars, amphitheatre performances, resident artists and more.
Holland America Line offers three-night stays to give you extra time to truly immerse yourself in the Denali experience. Tundra Wilderness Tours, which take you 62 miles deep into the Park, are included on all two-and-three-night stays.
You’ll also feast on local favourites, including fettucine with freshly caught Alaskan king crab, caribou burgers and barbecued salmon, washing them down with a local brew, of course!
Exclusive Access to the Yukon
Holland America Line is the world’s only cruise line permitted to visit the unspoiled reaches of the Yukon.
Passengers are encouraged to combine this unique experience with Denali and a Glacier Discovery or an Inside Passage cruise, which features Dawson City, site of the incredible gold rush of 1898, the historic White Pass and Yukon Route Railroad from Skagway.
You will also enjoy the services of a professional Journey Host, a friend and concierge every mile of the way!
