Cruises in Alaska – Discover The Great Land’s Glaciers and Abundance of Wildlife
Ever wondered how Alaska got its name?? Well, it’s derived from the (Aleut) native language word “alyeshka” which means “The Great Land” for its immense scale and grandeur, as well as for the respect of native inhabitants towards the land. This northern frontier still boasts pristine landscapes, majestic wildlife and a coastline that is one of the most enthralling waterways in the world. With more than 1,400 miles north to south and 2,400 miles east to west, Alaska is truly a land of epic proportions. By any measure, Alaska is a huge, spectacular and incredibly diverse land, one of the last and greatest unspoiled wildernesses on Earth.
