A northern wilderness of raw and powerful beauty, Alaska leaves a deep impression. Much of its charm lies in the ramshackle clapboard houses that line the docks of its towns only accessible by boat. After all these are working towns with a proud fishing culture. Venture further inland though and the virgin beauty of its water passageways, spruce forests and mountains shrouded in mist is almost overwhelming. And it doesn’t really matter how you see Alaska. Whether you’re cruising the glacial waters of Prince William Sound, hanging out with the husky dogs of Tok, or discovering the rich Alaskan Native culture of Ketchikan, every day feels like an adventure on an escorted tour with Cosmos.
