The cruise travel company recommended immersing yourself “in Tlingit culture, from the stunning totem poles to chief shakes’ tribal home in remote Wrangell, one of Alaska’s oldest cities and known as the heart of the Inner Passage.”

Take your Alaskan experience to the next level with spectacular glacier flights or helicopter tours between mountain meadows in one of two state-of-the-art helicopters aboard the Scenic Eclipse,” the brand advised.


According to the company, “Eureka is the hidden gem of California’s northern coast, nestled between towering mountains and Humboldt Bay.”

The firm recommended taking a walking tour of the Victorian-era city, including Carson Mansion, considered the largest Victorian home in America. In addition, he highlighted the possibility of admiring a redwood forest with some of the tallest trees on Earth.
