Join us on this amazing journey into the interior of the Last Frontier, a wildlife lover’s paradise. Explore iconic national parks and connect with nature through guided forays by foot, canoe or kayak—all at your own pace! During our backcountry explorations, scan for grizzlies, moose, caribou, wolves and more. Glide along Alaska’s stunning seacoast, getting the special chance to view humpback and orca whales, sea lions, sea otters, puffins and a wide variety of sea birds. In addition to learning about Alaska’s natural wonders, including unique flora and fauna, this trip also aims to provide a deeper understanding of Alaska’s rich native culture and history. The only experience necessary for this adventure is a spirit of adventure. With space for just 16 travelers—or fewer—we anticipate this trip will sell out quickly. Enroll today!
