4. Catch the Great Salmon Run
The salmon run starts in the spring and runs into the fall depending on the geographic area and species. Although the run isn’t consistent from year to year in terms of numbers of fish and timing, the main runs take place in July and August. King salmon, or 'spring salmon' are usually the first to return with the sockeye, pink, chum, and silver after. Guests can even spot bears on the hunt for their lunch.

5. Check Glacier Hiking Off your Bucket List
“An Alaskan cruise takes you on a journey in more senses than one, into the unknown. It’s a land of vivid colors, exceptional beauty, iconic wildlife, and vast landscapes of unimaginable grandeur," says Lucia Griggi, Silversea’s Director of Onboard Photography who has traveled to all seven continents with the cruise line. You'll arrive at a rocky shore by Zodiac where you'll set off in search of Davidson Glacier, a large 7.4 km² valley glacier near Haines, Alaska.
