Alaskan Wildlife & Wilderness

Trip Overview
This all-encompassing trip definitely delivers the 'wow factor'! This is the ultimate Alaskan adventure complete with float plane flights, bear viewing, wildlife cruises and wilderness walks. Alaska contains glaciers, forests, lakes and rushing rivers as well as some of the most beautiful hikes on the continent. The wildlife is legendary, thriving both in the sea and on land.

Enjoy excellent opportunities to see marine life in Kenai Fjords National Park and take a float plane into the wilderness to search for Black and Grizzly Bears on this once in a lifetime tour.

Itinerary & Notes
Welcome to Anchorage, the largest city in Alaska with only 300,000 people and a city which has undergone quite a change since the earthquake of 1964. Now a bustling city fuelled by the oil boom and tourism, it wasn’t that long ago that Anchorage was the last outpost before heading into the ‘Last Frontier’, this is a city mixed with metropolitan luxuries and unrivalled natural wonders. It’s not uncommon to find bear roaming the outskirts of the city, this is one truly wild place. A great way to spend your day is to wander around town getting a feel for the 49th state, speaking to the locals and checking out some of the great cafes and restaurants. A welcome meeting will be held at 18:00 hrs for you to meet your tour leader and fellow travelling companions. *Optional Activities:* • Alaska Native Heritage Center US$25 • Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center US$15 • Tony Knowles Coastal Trail US$free • Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum US$10 *Comfortable Hotel*

This is truly the trip of a lifetime. It was everything we wanted in terms of wildlife viewing, amazing scenery and getting out into the wilderness.
       
An amazing holiday to a stunning, unspoiled and primal part of the world. The itinerary is activity-packed but never really feels forced: there is plenty of time to take in the changing landscapes and animals that you meet each day. Not a trip for someone who doesn't like glaciers, mountains, breathtaking scenery and wildlife living our their lives as Nature intended.
       
Stunning scenery and abundant wildlife
       
An excellent trip encompassing the wilderness of Alaska with plenty of wildlife viewing. Plenty of optional trips to make the holiday as adventurous at wanted.
       
An amazing wildlife tour, Alaska is beautiful with an overwhelming landscape. The tour included  a variety of activities for different abilities. The camping is 'rustic', with good facilities. Our leaders Mark and Alia  were friendly, helpful and very organised.
       
Varied trip through a stunning part of the world. Lots of activity, plenty of wildlife and glaciers and mountains everywhere.

A trip of a lifetime with breath-taking scenery! A good balance of challenging hikes and other activities like the whale watching cruise and scenic float plane flight. Its definitely aimed at people who like to be busy and active on their holiday.
