Day 0 Juneau, Alaska

Juneau, often described as America's most unusual state capital, is the only U.S. state capital with no roads leading into or out of town. The city is surrounded by nature, forested islands, quiet inlets and coves, and rugged coastal mountain ranges provide the backdrop for unforgettable whale watching and wildlife viewing, photography, fishing, hiking, kayaking, or just sitting back, relaxing, and marveling at the majestic wilderness gliding past your view.

Day 1 Tracy Arm, Alaska

Tracy Arm Fjord is an approximate 30 mile long fjord, a narrow inlet created by glacial activity, with nearly a quarter of its area covered in ice. In fact, it encompasses some of Alaska's largest glaciers, including the twin Sawyer glaciers, which often expel enormous chunks of ice into the waters below in a magnificent process known as calving.

Day 2 Haines, Alaska

Hanies is an important port of call for the Alaska Marine Highway System, whose ferries deposit RVers and other travelers in Haines en route to the Alaska Highway to the north. Haines is widely known as the adventure capital of Alaska with so many attractions and activities available to its visitors.

Day 3 Icy Strait, Alaska

Icy Strait Point is a privately owned tourist destination just outside the small village of Hoonah, the largest native Tlingit Indian settlement in Alaska. As one of the best places in the world to see whales, and a darn good spot to view bears, Icy Strait/Hoonah is among Alaska's most beloved destinations for wildlife enthusiasts.

Day 4 Baranof Island, Alaska

Baranof Island hosts the highest mountain in the Alexander Archipelago, and is the eighth largest island in Alaska. Baranof Island hosts the highest mountain in the Alexander Archipelago, and is the eighth largest island in Alaska.
