Immerse yourself in history within the star-shaped walls of Fort Goryokaku and explore the site of famous battles that transformed Japan. Work up an appetite strolling along the city’s sloping streets and enjoy a mouth-watering seafood rice bowl (kaisen-don) from the Hakodate Morning Market.
MURORAN, JAPAN – Known as the “City of Steel,” Muroran is much more than Hokkaido’s industrial base. Visit the fascinating Hell Valley, a 24-acre geothermal crater created by the eruption of Mt. Kuttara 20,000 years ago. Experience roiling lava pits and dip your toes into an onsen natural hot water bath. Enjoy Pacific vistas from high atop Cape Chikyu. Savour some of Muroran’s specialty cuisines, including spicy curry Ramen and traditional yakitori made with pork, onions and mustard.
PETROPAVLOVSK, RUSSIA – Sublime views of two giant volcanoes and a long line of snow-capped mountains greet you upon arrival in Petropavlovsk. Wander the streets of this fishing town past a quaint wooden chapel and historic monuments, and stop for a beer at a charming café. Visit the Kamchatka Museum, overlooking the bay, where dioramas of nomadic herders, old cannonballs and other artifacts will take you back in time. Or explore ancient geological relics at the Museum of Volcanoes.
SEWARD, ALASKA – Best known for its beautiful parks and mountain scenery, Seward, Alaska is not to be missed. There is nearly an endless variety of outdoor activities to enjoy in Seward, from mountain biking and climbing, to rafting, sea kayaking, and dog-sledding, and even skiing, fishing or white water rafting. Explore scenic hiking trails or have a picnic among the pristine landscape. There’s no shortage of enjoyable pastimes in Alaska’s City of Seward.

Comprised of 3.3 million acres of natural wonders, it is home to magnificent glaciers, snow-capped mountains and abundant birds and wildlife. Take an Alaska cruise to experience the magnificent glaciers and wildlife at the Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve.
SKAGWAY, ALASKA – In a single year from 1896 to 1897, this remote town along the Inside Passage grew from a few tents to a city of 20,000 gold seekers. Today, travellers come in search of other riches – to experience yesteryear along Skagway’s charming boardwalk lined with buildings that replicate those Gold Rush days.
JUNEAU, ALASKA – Juneau has been called “Alaska’s peak experience,” certainly due in part to its unparalleled glacier viewing from such places as Tracy Arm Fjord, the Juneau Icefields and Glacier Bay National Park. Kayak up one of the area’s many protected waterways, go flightseeing, tour historic downtown or try your hand at panning for gold. The majestic Mendenhall Glacier lies nearly 12 miles outside Juneau, a treck worthwhile.

KETCHIKAN, ALASKA – Its Tlingit Indian name, Kach Khanna, means “spread wings of the eagle.” Chances are you’ll see one of these magnificent birds perched atop a Sitka tree. Thanks to its abundant rainfall, Ketchikan is surrounded by some of the world’s most lush wilderness.
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON – Seattle sits on the slip of land between Puget Sound and Lake Washington, with the Olympic and Cascade Mountains serving as a dramatic backdrop for this oh-so cosmopolitan city. Soar up the futuristic Space Needle and experience the views atop this stunning landmark created for the 1962 World’s Fair.
