Tours from Vancouver to Alaska

Q: Are there are tours from Vancouver to Alaska, through Southeast Alaska, by bus or combination train and bus?

A: There are not any tour services into Alaska by land out of Vancouver. Geography and a lack of roads into the Southeastern Alaska communities prohibits it. The best choice for traveling to Alaska from Vancouver is by cruise ship. This is a great way to see SouthEast Alaska. There are a variety of 7 day cruises to choose from either Seattle or Vancouver.

    Are there bus tours up the AlCan beginning in (say) Calgary or Edmonton.

    All the way to Fairbanks maybe?

    Ideally something commercial like Greyhound maybe? take the bus to Alaska!

    Thanks for the time to service this.

    There use to be a few bus services that did one or two runs a summer from the lower-48 but none of them exist any longer, and there is no scheduled service from the lower-48 to Alaska.
