With towering mountains, marvellous glaciers and charming shoreside villages, Alaska is the perfect destination for a luxury cruise. Start in the metropolitan city of Vancouver and cruise through the dramatic landscape of the Inside Passage until you reach the pleasant seaside cities and towns of Alaska. Sailing along the striking seascape, get up close to the wildlife that call Alaska their home. From one of many viewing decks, look out for passing pods of majestic orca, cheeky sea otters and mighty bears on the shore. This voyage is perfectly combined with a journey through the Rockies, an adventure deep within the forest aboard one of the world’s most luxurious trains.

What people are saying
OROKO created the honeymoon of our dreams in South Africa. The consultation process was very laid-back and conversational. The whole process overall was really quite quick and smooth. There was no trawling through the internet for hours late at night, weighing up costs and reviews of hotels and transfer companies etc – it was all done for us based on the OROKO travel experts’ experiences – which we found to be absolutely spot on. Choosing a ‘luxury travel’ company was a little daunting: We wanted a special honeymoon without spending silly money – and OROKO worked very well with this brief. Believe me when I say our accommodation could not have been more perfect for us. It really was the holiday of our dreams.
