Alaska may be “The Last Frontier,” but it doesn’t have to be your last frontier.

This far-north state is huge, sparsely populated, and not the most hospitable in the winter months, but seeing its best and most beautiful attractions has never been easier with the rising popularity of summer cruises through the famed Inside Passage.

There are hundreds of reasons to visit Alaska, but here are 9 especially beautiful reasons we think you should take an Inside Passage Cruise this summer:

Introducing the #Waterlust Photo Challenge

We love summer. Is it obvious?

We’ve already celebrated summertime classics like #goldenhour and #hiking. And so it’s only natural to share some love with summer’s #1 feature: water!

In summer all over the world, people turn to lakes, rivers, oceans, seas, ponds, streams, and waterfalls to cool down and have some fun in the sun. The joy of spending time in the water is something we call “waterlust,” and it’s the focus of our latest photo challenge!

Trover’s $1500 #Waterlust Photo Challenge

Without further ado, we bring you The Trover #Waterlust Photo Challenge. We’re looking for stunning photos, remarkable places, and useful information, so bring on your best!
