Cruise tours in Ketchikan offer passengers to view the largest and the world's oldest original collection of totems poles. These art forms of the northwestern tribes each tell an historical tale of the area. Tour visitors will experience the distinctive flavor of the town Ketchikan which is partly built on wooden pilings.

Alaskan tours to Juneau offers a different historical flavor. It was near Juneau that the first gold discovery was made sparking the "Gold Rush". Tours to the capital of Alaska can also include touring the surrounding wilderness. The Juneau Icefield, mountain peaks and glaciers make cruise tours here fascinating and exciting.

Cruise tour lodges abound in Alaska. Some of the cruise lines even have their own tour lodges custom built for this specific purpose.

Some of the best cruise tours included in Alaskan cruising are the water tours. Imagine touring by small boats among ice bergs at the sites of the famous glaciers. Better yet, tour around in a kayak and get an "up close and personal" experience with the glaciers and ice bergs.
