Alaska Holidays

By far the largest state in the USA, Alaska offers profoundly beautiful national parks, superb wildlife and charming pioneer townships.

The dramatic coast of Alaska is literally strewn with gigantic glaciers with stand-out attractions including the Glacier Bay National Park and the Hubbard Glacier, a staggering wall of ice over 5 miles wide. Inland you’ll find the vast Denali National Park, home to North America's highest peak, Mount McKinley.

The wildlife is also astonishing with bears, elk and moose often sighted. At sea, humpback whales and pods of orcas are common companions and majestic bald eagles can be found nesting in shoreline forests.

Alaska’s towns contain fascinating glimpses of their pioneering history and are the gateway for some incredible experiences. Ride the Alaska Railroad Anchorage, explore the jaw-dropping Misty Fjord National Monument from Ketchikan or head out into the wilderness by dog sled from Juneau.

Trailfinders is the UK’s No.1 for Alaska cruising and many of our Travel Consultants have first-hand experience. Our speciality is tailormade holidays in Alaska. With us, in every part of the state, you can pick and choose how you’d like to get around, where you’d like to stay and how you’d like to experience the attractions.

    So, how best to enjoy a holiday in Alaska? For a country where many of the towns can only be reached by sea a cruise is the natural choice. See spectacular glaciers, densely forested wilderness and isolated fishing towns from the comfort of your home on the waves.

    On land a small group adventure will take in the highlights of Denali and Wrangell St Elias national parks as well as getting you off the beaten track or if you’d prefer a little more flexibility, we offer some wonderful fly drive and motorhome holidays.


    We feature a great range of accommodation in Alaska, with something to suit all budgets.

    Maybe you’re looking for a harbour front hotel in Valdez harbour or the perfect lodge for exploring Denali National Park? Or perhaps it’s a great value option in the heart of Fairbanks or an Anchorage hotel that’s handy for the railroad? Whether can help you with per and post cruise hotels or the best choices throughout your multi centre and fly drive holidays all over Alaska.

    What you won’t find here are thousands upon thousands of hotels where you have to wade through endless reviews from strangers to find the best one. We have done the hard work for you and selected the best places to stay so you don’t have to and our travel consultants are on hand to help, often with first-hand experience.

    The mighty Alaska Railroad cuts through this massive state, linking the port towns of Seward and Whittier with Anchorage, Talkeetna, Fairbanks and Denali National Park. Watch the wilderness roll past as you sweep through tundra, forests and frontier settlements, all the while relaxing in the warm and comfort of the Alaska Railroad.

    One day you might be riding the Alaska Railroad past glaciers and forests, the next dog sledding atop the Punch Bowl Glacier after a thrilling helicopter ride from Girdwood. You might be cruising through Prince William Sound or the Kenai Fjords or soaring over Denali by bush plane. Our collection of unmissable experiences will really help bring your holiday to Alaska alive.
