Day 1 — Nome, Alaska

Nome is located on the edge of the Bering Sea, on the southwest side of the Seward Peninsula. Unlike other towns which are named for explorers, heroes or politicians, Nome was named as a result of a 50 year-old spelling error. In the 1850's an officer on a British ship off the coast of Alaska noted on a manuscript map that a nearby prominent point was not identified. He wrote "? Name" next to the point. When the map was recopied, another draftsman thought that the “?” was a C and that the “a” in "Name" was an o, and thus a map-maker in the British Admiralty christened "Cape Nome." The area has an amazing history dating back 10,000 years of Inupiaq Eskimo use for subsistence living. Modern history started in 1898 when "Three Lucky Swedes”, Jafet Lindberg, Erik Lindblom and John Brynteson, discovered gold in Anvil Creek…the rush was on! In 1899 the population of Nome swelled from a handful to 28,000. Today the population is just over 3,500. Much of Nome's gold rush architecture remains.

Day 2 — Date Line lose a day

Planet Earth is divided into 24 different time zones and regardless of where you are on the planet, the time and date always changes at midnight. So, for those who travel westwards, time moves seemingly “slower” over the time zones gaining one hour per time zone crossed, but you suddenly find yourself one day older when crossing the date line from the Western to the Eastern Hemisphere since you have to adjust for the time “gained”! Just to confuse matters even further, the IDL (International Date Line) is arbitrary, and countries can request to move it as they please! For two hours of every day (between 10 am and 12 pm GMT), the world has three different dates, meaning that when it is 11:30 pm on Sunday in American Samoa (GMT-11), it will be 6:30 am on Monday in New York City (GMT-4) and 12.30 am on Tuesday in Kiritimati, Line Islands (GMT+14)!

Day 3 — Provideniya, Russia

Already seen by an early Russian expedition in the mid-17th century, Provideniya Bay’s strategic importance was not recognized until 1848-49, when Captain Moore overwintered there on HMS Plover during the search for Franklin’s lost expedition. He gave the bay its name which in turn was used in the 1930s when a port and city was built in Provideniya Bay as a coaling and supply station for the ships in the Chukotka Region and for the Northern Sea Lane. Until recently huge piles of coal in the harbor were remains of that period. Provideniya is located at the northeastern end of the bay, at Emma Harbor. Originally built for military purposes, the town was meant to grow to have up to 12,000 inhabitants. Today there are some 2,200 residents –many of them Yupik- living along the shore of the northern side of Emma Harbor. On the southern side are the buildings formerly used by the military. For decades the town was all grey, but today many houses are brightly colored. The “House of the Culture” serves to show cultural performances ranging from Russian to local folklore and the small “Museum of Beringian Heritage” has interesting exhibition pieces, including a walrus skull with four tusks. An old anchor in front of the weathered lighthouse commemorates Vitus Bering. The best view of Provideniya Bay to the south and town to the northeast can be had at the cemetery.

Day 4 — Chegitum

The small village of Chegitun sits near the mouth of the Chegitun River on the Chukchi Peninsula (also called Chukotka Peninsula). The peninsula is the easternmost projection of Russia, and in fact the Eurasian Continent. Next stop east is Alaska, across the Bering Strait. This was the ancient migration route for animals to cross to and from the Americas, and for the first people to enter North America. Chegitun was a seasonal village the Chukchi people occupied each year for gathering berries, fishing, and hunting for marine mammals including seals, Walrus and Grey Whales. The Chegitun River is spawning waters for fish including Arctic Char and Taranets Char, a specialist of the glacier lakes and rivers of Chukotka. Other fish include Siberian, Pink, Chum and Sockeye Salmon. Each summer, adult fish still swim upriver. Chegitun was occupied from about 500 CE (AD) to the 1960s when the remote settlement was closed and the population permanently transferred to Inchoun. You may see the Chukchi people traveling about today, as they are still reliant on fishing and hunting for food. The tundra is snow-free for only a few months, but the long days of sunlight allow time for birds to nest in early summer. Some birds are resident, while migratory shorebirds fly to distant shores before late summer. Coastal seabirds also nest early, with some only staying briefly and others persisting for months. Sighting a rare Snowy Owl takes luck but it will create excitement, especially for Harry Potter fans.

Day 5 — Kolyuchin Bay | Kolyuchin Island

Kolyuchin Bay is a large bay on the Chukchi sea on the northern shore of the Chukotka Peninsula in Russia. In 1793 the bay was named Count Bezborodko Bay in honor of a Russian Statesman, but was renamed after nearby Kolyuchin Island because locals could not get accustomed to Bezborodko. Kolyuchin Bay is a huge tidal estuary area made for hiking and exploring. From the boat shorebirds can be seen, while on the tundra visitors might spot ground squirrels as well as larger mammals; even brown bears are said to have been seen occasionally. Bowhead whales can sometimes be spotted around the island.

Kolyuchin Island is a small island in the Chukchi Sea that is uninhabited and covered with tundra vegetation. The island is the site of a famous rescue operation after a Russian icebreaker was crushed by ice nearby. Located close to the Siberian shore this island has been used as the base for a now-abandoned meteorological station at its western end, while walrus hunters had a few huts on the eastern side. The island has steep, dramatic bird cliffs teeming with Pelagic Cormorants, Thick-billed Murres and kittiwakes. Horned and Tufted Puffins might be another highlight for birders and photographers. Visitors may also see the walrus herds that frequent the shore and water surrounding Kolyuchin.

Day 6 — Uelen Village

Located on a sand spit wedged in between Uelen Lagoon to the south and the Chukchi Sea to the north, Uelen Village is located approximately 8 nautical miles from Cape Dezhnev, the easternmost point of Eurasia. Within the Russian Beringia National Park Uelen is one of only six rural communities in Chukotsky District. The former names “Land’s End” and “Flooded Place” indicate Uelen’s exposed location near rocky and high cliffs. The area has been in use for fishing and hunting marine mammals for more than 2,000 years, but after the forced relocation of residents from what in the 1950s were considered uneconomical villages, Uelen is now the easternmost settlement and less than 60 miles (100 km) from mainland Alaska. A pebbly beach with mostly laminated siltstones leads up to the village and Eurasia’s easternmost church, the Russian Orthodox Chapel of the Resurrection built in 2002. Chukotka’s first school was set up in 1916 and the village has become a major artistic center. Apart from cultural performances, prints are being produced and carvings made by local artists from reindeer antlers, whale bone and walrus ivory. These items are highly coveted. The walrus ivory carving museum has outstanding objects and new carvings are sometimes offered for sale, as the local hunters have permits and monthly quotas for bowhead and grey whales as well as walrus.

Day 7 — Cape Kuyveveem

Like bookends, towering cliffs composed of light-colored granite and streaked by darker rock stand on each side of a large sheltered bay in the spectacular scenery of Cape Kuyvyveen. The sandy beach lies at the head of the bay with rolling tundra behind. The sheer granite rocks, distinct basalt caves and arches of the cape are home to thousands of Tufted Puffins that nest in rocky crevasses. Despite the cliffs on either side of the bay being quite close together, the adjacent terrains are slightly different and each attracts different species of birds. Thick-billed Murres, Glaucous and Slaty-winged Gulls, Parakeet Auklets and Red Phalaropes frequent the dramatic rocky formations while Common Murres, Pelagic Cormorants and Black-legged Kittiwakes line the cliffs and archways.

Day 8 — Date Line gain a day | St. Paul Island (Alaska), United States

Crossing the date line (theoretically the 180-degree line of longitude) from the Eastern to the Western Hemisphere seafaring guests will find themselves in the unusual situation of actually gaining a day and prolonging their holiday – at no extra cost! By crossing the (fictitious) line that dissects the planet exactly in half from Greenwich, you travel over time zones and find yourself with an extra day on board. The phenomenon was used by Jules Verne in his novel Around the World in 80 Days when his hero Phileas Fogg finds out he had returned home a full day earlier than calculated having always travelled towards the east. As some countries have decided to change to different time zones than allotted based on longitude, this phenomenon is not strictly linked to the 180-degree line of longitude any longer.

The city of Saint Paul is located on a narrow peninsula on the southern tip of St. Paul Island, the largest of five islands in the Pribilof Islands. These islands are located in the middle of the Bering Sea between the United States and Russia. St. Paul lies 240 miles north of the Aleutian Islands, 300 miles west of mainland Alaska, and 750 air miles west of Anchorage. The city of St. Paul is the only residential area on the island. The first non-natives to ‘discover’ St. Paul were Russian fur-traders in the late 1780s, led by the navigator, Gavriil Pribylov. Today, this small city has one school (K-12), one post office, one bar, one small general store, and one church, a Russian Orthodox Church that is registered as a National Historic building. In summer, this island is teeming with wildlife, including about 500,000 northern fur seals and millions of seabirds, including Tufted Puffins.

Day 9 — Dutch Harbor

With Bald Eagles soaring overhead, emerald-green volcanic peaks chafing the clouds, and raw ocean scenery as far as the eye can see, this far-flung destination is the definition of remote and wild. Part of the outlying Aleutian Islands archipelago, which spirals out across the Bering Sea into the wilds of the Pacific, Dutch Harbor offers a dramatic backdrop and rich military history - as one of the few pieces of US soil to be directly attacked by the Japanese during World War II. The town settles into the embrace of a vast deepwater harbor, which helps to protect from the unpredictable churn of the Bering Sea. Enjoy hikes along coastal trails to birdwatch among more than 100 different species – and look on as huge clouds of cawing seabirds float on gusts of wind, filling the air with their raucous calls. Dutch Harbor is famous for its crab fishing industry – a dangerous, challenging pursuit - and the town is well known to many Americans as the setting of the television show Deadliest Catch. The Aleutian WWII Visitor Center and the Museum of the Aleutians provide extensive information on WWII in the Aleutians, prehistory, the Russian period, Unangan (Aleut) culture and recent history. A visible reminder of the Russian past is the Holy Ascension Cathedral, the oldest cruciform-style Russian Orthodox church in North America and a National Historic Landmark.

Day 10 — At Sea

Days at sea are the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and catch up with what you’ve been meaning to do. So whether that is going to the gym, visiting the spa, whale watching or catching up on your reading, these blue sea days are the perfect balance to busy days spent exploring shore side.

Day 11 — Geographic Harbor

Geographic Harbor is a superb hidden natural harbor within the Katmai National Park. It is well known for its wildlife and wilderness values, but it was a cataclysmic event that lead to the preservation of the area. In 1912, a huge volcanic eruption on the Alaska Peninsula devastated the landscape. One valley of ash, fumeroles and steam was named The Valley of a Thousand Smokes. The National Geographic Society came to study the event and successfully lobbied for the area’s protection. One of their expeditions put Geographic Harbor on the map and it was named after the society. People have lived in the area for at least 9000 years, including native Alaskan Alutiiq people, Russian fur trappers and American adventurers. The area was evacuated after the 1912 eruption, leaving nature on the peninsula to slowly recover. At Geographic Harbor little evidence of eruptions remains except the dramatic volcanic mountain landscape and estuaries of eroded volcanic sediments. Nature abounds in Geographic Harbor. The waters have many fish, including Sock-eye Salmon who gather in summer. Fish attract Bald Eagles to the harbor surface, and Harbor Seals to hunt in deeper water. Sea otters dive for shellfish while other intertidal mollusks fall to Black Oystercatchers. Gulls and crows scavenge for scraps. Large Brown Bears are sometimes seen foraging for berries, roots and sedges ashore, or for clams at low tide. But, as for all wildlife, no sighting is guaranteed. This is a harbor where the life is truly wild.

Day 13 — Cruise Hubbard Glacier, Alaska

Hubbard Glacier, off the coast of Yakutat, Alaska, is the largest glacier in North America, with a calving front that is more than six miles wide. One of the main sources for Hubbard Glacier originates 76 mi inland. It has been a very active glacier, experiencing two major surges in the past 30 years. This glacier was named after Gardiner Greene Hubbard, a U.S. lawyer, financier, and philanthropist. He was the first president of the National Geographic Society.

Day 14 — Elfin Cove , Alaska | Cruise Point Adolphus

Elfin Cove sits snugly on the southern shore of Cross Sound, which leads in eastwards to the Inside Passage. Northwards and across the Sound from the small community lies Glacier Bay National Park and the Fairweather Mountain range. Elfin Cove is a quaint little harbor clustered with attractive timber houses built into the wooded hillsides on stilts. The population swells to about 200 during the summer months, from a rather meager 6 or so during the snowy and isolated winters. Its commercial hub consists of a Post Office, mini-Museum, a General Store, the Coho Bar and numerous sports fishing businesses. In the summer months Rufous-backed Hummingbirds visit feeders scattered around the community.

On the northern tip of Chichagof Island Point Adolphus, is a well-known area for humpback whale watching. Enjoy an aperitif or a hot cup of tea while you are on the outer decks, looking for humpback whales as well as orcas, or simply enjoying the landscape.

Day 15 — Sitka (Alaska)

A distant land of bears, wild landscapes and icy adventures, sail between glorious islands and witness the diverse wildlife of the Inside Passage. Eagles watch over the scenery overhead, while whales and sea lions add glorious weight to the animal life that thrives and thrashes in these icy seas. With a quintet of Pacific salmon species filling the rich rivers and waterways with life, settle back to enjoy the show, as Sitka's immense set pieces play out before you. You might notice the onion-shaped dome atop St. Michael’s Church – a relic of the area's Russian history. Sitka formed a part of the Russian Empire until a deal was struck in 1867, and the territory was sold to the United States, with the handover ceremony taking place here in Sitka. The native Tlingit culture is an important presence, and elaborate totem poles rocket up in Sitka National Historical Park. They mark the battleground of 1804, when the indigenous people clashed fiercely with the Russians. The snow-capped peak of the dormant volcano, Mount Edgecumbe, draws understandable comparisons with Mount Fuji's symmetrical cone. Climb to thrilling heights, as you arrive on Kruzof Island, and enjoy richly spellbinding views of the scattered Pacific islands, while hiking. Whether you want to spend your time flying above snow-dusted mountain ridges, fishing for colossal King salmon, or savoring Northwest frontier cuisine in waterfront restaurants, there's no shortage of ways to experience Sitka's natural wonders.

Day 16 — Wrangell, Alaska

Watch salmon leaping and bears pouncing, as Alaska's majestic natural spectacles play out before you in Wrangell. Seeing the bears pawing meaty salmon from the pure, gushing water is one of Alaska's most prized shows, and there are few better places to witness it than Wrangell - a town set amid the fractured lands of the legendary Inside Passage. Having experienced three gold rushes in its history, the immense scenery and thrilling wildlife is an enduring treasure for visitors. The mighty Stikine River has been the lifeblood to this region for centuries, cutting through pine-cloaked valleys for 400 miles before unloading into the frigid ocean. Explore via jet-boat and head out to the abundant waters of Anan Creek, an ancient fishing site of the Tlingit people. Visit waters thick with lithe salmon - a bounty that tempts black and brown bears from the confines of their forest shelters. The Anan Wildlife Observatory provides the ultimate viewing point to watch the salmon leaping from the cascading water. Look out from the cover for bears, salmon and bald eagles. Try your own luck fishing in Wrangell's waters, which are teeming with a rich bounty. Clomp through rich forests - beside waterfalls and waterways - on hair-raising hikes, which open out to glorious waterfront vistas. The aptly named Petroglyph Beach is the place to see amazing petroglyph artworks carved into the rocks. Or tour Shakes Island's Tribal House, where you can see a replica of a Tinglit community house. The house is surrounded by fascinating, original totem poles, and a wooden footbridge conveniently links the island with Wrangell's harbor.

Day 17 — Behm Canal, Alaska | Rudyerd Bay, Misty Fjords

Mountaineer John Muir (aka "Father of the National Parks”) said of Alaska “To the lover of wilderness, Alaska is one of the most wonderful countries in the world”. If you don’t believe him, then one trip along the Behm Canal will change your mind. Separating Revillagigedo Island from the Alaskan mainland, the roughly 100 mile long Behm Canal is located within the Tongass National Forest. The National Forest supports abundant wildlife, so keep your eyes on the skies for Bald Eagles, Northern Goshawks, and Marbled Murrelets, not forgetting to scan the shores for brown bears, wolves and Sitka black-tailed deer. All five species of Pacific salmon call Behm Canal home. Tongass extends over a massive 16.9 million acres and is the largest wilderness area in Alaska’s forests and the second largest forest in the nation. Originally charted in 1793 by George Vancouver, the Behm Canal is the western border of Misty Fjords National Monument. The “Mistys” take their name from the eponymous shroud of near constant mist that crown the towering mountains. Although this does not detract from it dramatic beauty: with 3 million acres of breathtaking fjords, lakes, glaciers, waterfalls and towering ancient forests with snow-capped peaks, it is unsurprising that the Misty Fjords National Monument is considered as the “Yosemite of the North.”

Painstakingly sculpted by the slow grind of colossal glaciers, the fjords of Rudyerd Bay are some of the Inside Passage’s most spectacular and humbling. Gouged to the south-east of Alaska, just 40 miles from Ketchikan, hordes of salmon splash in the region’s streams, while basalt pillars - left behind by ancient volcanoes - puncture the slow flow of the waters. A litany of plunging waterfalls gives sheer, monolithic cliff faces added life and vitality. With crowds of pine trees and snow-tipped mountains surrounding you everywhere you look, Rudyerd Bay is one of the Misty Fjords' most precious and inspiring locations. One of the best ways to survey this magnificent landscape is to take to the skies in a floatplane. Look down as you skim just below the clouds, over an immense scene of snow-coated mountain peaks, and deeply etched fjords. If you’d rather stay grounded, cruise through the majestic setting on a boat journey, to be dwarfed by the gigantic granite walls and cascading waterfalls. The abrupt cliffs of Punchbowl Cove rocket upwards, 3,000 feet (900 m) above sea level, with forest clinging on desperately and smudging various shades of green across them. Cloudy-blue glacier lakes add to the spectacular palette of natural colors. Be sure to keep an eye out for the area’s majestic wildlife - as orcas surface, and black bears and wolves slip between the dense banks of forest on the shore.

Day 18 — Cruise Inside Passage

Navigate through the intricate outlays of some of Alaska’s most staggering winter scenery, threading a needle between craggy, snow-dusted islands, and slipping glacial giants. To cruise this 500-mile stretch of Alaskan beauty is to sail through a living work of natural art - with perfectly sculpted mountains soaring from the shoreline, and clutches of islands scattered across the dark waters with delicate attention to detail. A common sailing route due to its calm sheltered waters, gorgeous natural set pieces constantly play out here - whether it’s killer whales accompanying you through the breathtaking icy passages, harbor seals catching a break on floating hunks of ice, or wisps of cloud clinging to distant mountain peaks. Witness Mother Nature at her most dramatic and elaborate along this Alaskan coastline, where glaciers groan and creak melodramatically, before finally releasing colossal shelves of ice, allowing them to free fall into the waters below, and explode with angry booms and thunderous splashes. While fundamental displays of nature’s power always awe and amaze, it’s the tranquil beauty of this passage - amid still waters, splitting only to reveal the smooth backs of breaching humpback whales – that is relentlessly moving. A journey of glaciers, remote hidden villages, and carved fjords - the Inside Passage is a breathtaking voyage through the intricate mesh of Alaska’s fractured, raw and spectacular coastal landscapes.

Day 19 — Vancouver, Canada

Boasting mountains, sea, culture, art and so much more, many cities claim to have it all, but few can back it up like Vancouver. Famously livable, just visiting this highrise city - surrounded by staggering natural beauty - is a thrill. Offering all of the creature comforts of an ultra-modern, worldly metropolis - even downtown has a hint of mountain-freshness to its air - and part of Vancouver's appeal is how easily you can swap the skyscrapers for whale-filled oceans and mountain-punctured skies. Head up to the Vancouver Lookout Tower for the ultimate 360-degree views of the city glistening, amid the beautiful embrace of the beckoning wilderness beyond. But what to see first? Art lovers might choose the Vancouver Art Gallery or the Contemporary Art Gallery. Nature lovers might rush for the ferry to visit Vancouver Island - where they can encounter grizzly bears, whales and orcas. Culture vultures, on the other hand, will probably head for the sights and sounds of Canada's biggest Chinatown. From steaming dim sum for lunch to Chinese apothecaries offering herbs to soothe any illness, it’s all here thanks to the migrant workers of the 19th century. The one-of-a-kind treasure of Stanley Park brings wild wonder and natural beauty to this cosmopolitan city's doorstep, and the pine-tree clad park offers isolated trails and amazing views. Wander the Seawall that encircles it - a 20-mile coastal path, full of joggers, whizzing skaters and wandering couples. Grab a bike and cycle between Coal Harbor and Kitsilano Beach. You can top up your tan on the shore, as you soak in the glorious views of the mountains and cityscape from the sands.
