Alaska has long been a top destination for cruisers, and it's easy to see why. Here are our top seven picks for Alaska shore experiences.

1. See Alaska by Air. Helicopter and airplane tours are a great way to experience Alaska's stunning scenery. Fly to remote regions to see massive glaciers; rugged, snow-capped mountains; spectacular valleys and turquoise, glacier-fed lakes.

2. Catch your dinner. Alaska is world renowned as a fishing mecca. Catch trout and coho salmon from clear streams; halibut and king salmon from fishing boats; or join a commercial crab fishing expedition and haul in your own most dangerous catch.

3. Wildlife at sea. Take a tour boat or--for the more adventurous--paddle your own sea kayak to up close with whales, orcas, sea lions, otters and much more.

4. Wildlife on land. Hike to see brown bears, Sitka black-tail deer, g mink, marten, red squirrels, beaver, ducks, sea birds, Sitka black-tail deer, and plenty of bald eagles.

5. Zipline through the trees. Take an adventure zipline tour, zooming through the canopy of a national forest with incredible views of scenery and wild life.

6. History and native peoples. There are many ways to experience the history of Alaska, from visiting a local village see the traditions and lifestyles of native peoples to guided tours of towns to see how the pioneering spirit of Alaskans that still persists today.

7. Dog sledding. What Alaskan trip would be complete without a ride on that Alaska icon, the dog sled. Learn how the dogs are trained and cared for, play with this year's puppies, and of course hop on and mush!
