North America Alaska Land Tour

Ultimate Alaska Wildlife Safari

On this 12-day Alaska wildlife safari, travel farther afield from standard routes, for a genuine Alaskan wilderness adventure. With only 14 or fewer fellow travelers and in the company of top naturalist guides, sample some of Alaska’s highlights—with a few by private excursion.

Insider-crafted highlights abound on this Alaska wildlife safari. Ride the Alaska Railroad to Seward, then look for whales, otters and puffins aboard a chartered boat in Kenai Fjords, and stay in solitude on private Fox Island. At Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park, capture iconic photos of giant brown bears fishing for salmon. Get away from overdone routes and discover the real Alaska.

Spend unhurried time with the brown bears of Brooks Falls. Fly into Denali National Park. Search for wildlife among the spruce forests, tundra and broad river valleys of inland Alaska. Overnight at a secluded beachfront lodge on private Fox Island in Kenai Fjords. And cruise Kenai Fjords aboard a chartered boat, surrounded by glaciers, seabirds and marine wildlife.

June and July/August 2024 itineraries differ from Day 8 onward but both uniquely feature overnights and wildlife viewing in the Denali National Park backcountry. June 2024 departures uniquely offer two different brown bear experiences in Southcentral Alaska: an all-day fly-in adventure from Homer to a bear-viewing destination on the roadless Katmai coast, followed by a 2-night stay at Bear Camp Alaska in Lake Clark National Park. July and August 2024 departures access Katmai National Park via floatplane from King Salmon to watch brown bears fishing in the Brooks River and, in season, catching salmon in Brooks Falls.
