The scenery is unbelievable, with forests in a hundred shades of green, tumbling turquoise glaciers, and evocative towns loaded with history, culture and adventure. All day long it hums with activity. Full Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 21: Tracy Arm ' Juneau
Nestled between high granite walls, the narrow slice of ocean called Tracy Arm Fjord weaves through the Tongass National Forest. The shoreline is spotted with waterfalls created by melting snow caps and trees. The dramatic Sawyer Glaciers at the end of Tracy Arm are framed by mountains on either side, and are often bathed in a light mist that amplifies the blue hue of the ice. The glaciers are home to black and brown bears, wolves, deer and moose, and seals and whales make their home in the fjord's icy waters. No roads lead to Juneau, which gives the Alaskan capital a misty inscrutability. Squeezed between the Gastineau Channel and Coast Mountains, Juneau offers a lot of variety in close proximity. The massive Mendenhall Glacier and the immense Juneau Icefields are at its back door. Here, you can shop downtown or get out and kayak, dogsled, raft, hike, whale watch, flightsee or fish. The adventures are as bountiful as the daylight.Full Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 23: Glacier Bay National Park
If you didn't know any better, you'd think Glacier Bay ostentatious for the way it flaunts its ice. A cruise to Glacier Bay National Park with Holland America Line will show you a UNESCO World Heritage Site that protects a unique ecosystem of plants and animals living in concert with an ever-changing glacial landscape. When a monumental chunk of ice splits off a glacier and thunders into the sea, the impact shoots water hundreds of feet into the air. In fact, Glacier Bay has more actively calving tidewater glaciers than any place else in the world.Full Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 24: Ketchikan
Ketchikan clutches the shores of the Tongass Narrows, with many shops and houses built out over the water. The vibe is cheerful in the town that calls itself the "Salmon Capital of the World." Besides the main attractions-Creek Street, the Tongass Historical Museum, Totem Bight State Park and Saxman Village-try a flightseeing trip to Misty Fjords National Monument.
