Our 49th state holds many wonders: Landscapes of incredible beauty, dynamic cities, and a rich cultural history.

This tour of Alaska includes several stops along the famous Inside Passage, including Sitka - noted for its Russian architecture.At Juneau, we pay a visit to the Red Dog Saloon, where hordes of gold-seekers caroused during the great Gold Rush of 1898.A canoe race and hot-air balloon ride are featured in the city of Anchorage.We take a trip to "Alaskaland" in Fairbanks and take a ride on a vintage steam-engine train, followed by an outing on board a stern-wheel steamboat.Try your luck panning for gold in Nome, then view an Inupiat tribal ceremony and blanket toss in Kotzebue.

Wild Alaska:
Enjoy an intimate look at the great variety of wildlife that inhabits the Alaskan frontier, including fox, bear, moose, salmon, sea otter and polar bear.Watch two bull moose lock antlers; see a pack of wolves hunt down a doomed musk ox.

Cruising The Inside Passage:
This picturesque waterway is the home of sea lions, whales, and many species of birds.Sail past lush, forested isles and towering, glacier-clad mountains during this amazing journey.

Klondike-Yukon Gold Rush:
Just over a century ago, the Klondike and Yukon regions were flooded by thousands of adventures with "gold fever."Retrace their steps, and take a nostalgic train ride through Gold Rush territory.
