“The core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
― Jon Krakauer quoting American adventurer Christopher McCandless, Into the Wild
It’s with great joy that we saw off our first group of 2021 travelers on our Alaska Explorer tour. This trip showcases otherworldly tundra wilderness, towering mountain landscapes, impressive river systems, and leaves time for your own adventures such as sea kayaking, flightseeing, artistic and cultural attractions, and hiking through Alaska’s fairytale-like forests.
We followed along with the first Alaska Explorer group on a social media takeover to give in-depth looks at what you can expect from traveling with Holiday Vacations. Our Tour Director Julia S. captured special moments each day, documenting natural beauty, superb meals, and special moments between guests.
The photos below are a recap of just a few of the images from the takeover.
