Nature is the canvas of a journey that will compel to learn and understand more about the natural world around us,while finding time for yourself on a mission for both the mind and soul.

What cities can I reach on a cruise around Alaska?

There are a variety of routes you can sail on a chartered yacht tour of Alaska, one of which takes you from Sitka in the south to Juneau in the north east, crossing the paths of large islands and taking the stunning natural scenery – no other place in the world compares for such dramatic backdrops that will provide you with such spectacular vistas.

Whales can be spotted frequently here whilst they thrive in their natural habitat of ice cold waters, and the glaciers will amaze even the most seasoned traveller. Alaska has a wealth of incredible sights that are waiting to be explored.

What to see on a luxury yacht charter in Alaska?

Any charter to Alaska should combine a trip around the stunning west coast islands and include locations such as Sitka, Chichagof Island, Tenakee Springs and Red Bluff.

Taking Sitka as a starting destination, when you dock in this beautiful island you will be given a stark reminder of Alaska’s 135-year-long relationship with the Russian Empire. This gem of a city, which kisses the Pacific Ocean on Baranof Island’s west shore, is one of the oldest non-native settlements in the state and the former capital of Russian Alaska (when it was known as New Archangel).

Serving as the midpoint between Sitka and Juneau, Tenakee Springs is known as a village with a modern, and alternative lifestyle. One of the more unusual sights is the free public bathhouse at the end of the ferry dock – a natural spring provides the water used for bathing, and most of the islanders will take one per day in this picturesque and rural land area.

Every Alaskan luxury yacht journey should stop off at Juneau. Not directly accessible by road, this remote location attracts around one million visitors each year, and it’s not difficult to see why – you’re unlikely to see such a quirky state capital anywhere in the world.
