 FEATURING A LOOK AT THE ALASKA AGRICULTURAL SCENE
 SEATTLE, Dec. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Holland America Westours is offering four special 13-day "Alaska Heartland" cruisetours in 1992 that will feature an up-close look at agriculture in the Great Land, the company announced today.

 Fares start at just $2,500 per person, double occupancy, with early booking savings available until Jan. 31, 1992. Fare includes return air transportation from Anchorage to Seattle.
 In addition to the spectacular scenery and wildlife viewing opportunities Alaska is famous for, "Heartland" travelers will experience two-plus days of agricultural highlights including experimental farms and research centers, family-operated dairy, grass- seed and even reindeer farms, the Tanana Valley Fair near Fairbanks or the Alaska State Fair at Palmer, and the Matanuska Valley, where giant cabbages and other produce abounds.
 The cruisetours also include an overnight in Vancouver, British Columbia; a luxury cruise through the scenic Inside Passage, featuring Ketchikan and Alaska's capital city, Juneau; Skagway, gateway to the Klondike gold rush, via Lynn Canal on board the mv Fairweather excursion boat; a ride on the restored vintage rail cars of the narrow-gauge White Pass & Yukon Route.
 At Whitehorse, travelers will visit the private Yukon Wildlife Preserve, a Holland America Westours exclusive which offers guaranteed wildlife viewing and photography opportunities.

At Beaver Creek, Y.T., travelers will be treated to a rustic dinner show themed to the construction of the Alaska Highway.
 From Fairbanks they'll take the McKinley Explorer glass-domed luxury rail cars to Denali National Park, home of Mount McKinley, then to Alaska's largest city, Anchorage.
