    The largest state in the United States, Alaska is home to 17 of the 20 highest peaks in North America, more than 100,000 glaciers, 3 million lakes, 6,640 miles of coastline, 33,904 miles of shoreline, and more than 70 potentially active volcanoes. From Alaska's majestic beauty to its staggering array of wildlife, it is truly a unique destination.

    Sailing on a cruise ship is just the beginning of any Alaskan Adventure. The absolute magnificence and splendor of Alaska can only be fully realized by experiencing an Alaska shore excursion. Whether it's by air, land or sea, exploring the wonders of Alaska on a shore excursion will be a once in a lifetime experience.

    At Shore Tour Deals, The Shore Excursions Group offers an extensive selection of exceptional Alaska cruise excursions providing our customers with reasonably-priced opportunities to experience the best of Alaska.
