Sometimes the most legendary destinations aren’t destinations at all… at least not the kind where everybody hops off the ship to explore the land. That’s why any intrepid explorer would be excited to have Endicott Arm Fjord on their itinerary! If you’re wondering why, let us explain that cruising up a fjord — basically a long ice-speckled river naturally carved into mountains over countless ages — gives you amazing, unique views of nature and wildlife like bears, whales and mountain goats, practically alongside the ship. And at the end of this watery “trail,” an incredible glacier awaits! This is one of nature’s best, a massive wall of ice that basically seems unconcerned with things like gravity. Dress warm for this show because it’s still chilly in Alaska's summer cruising months, and you’ll want to spend hours in the open air taking in all the sights. And for an even closer look, you can actually board a small boat for a completely unique excursion that gets you right down to sea-level and very close to the glacier!
