Alaska Adventures & Northern Expeditions

In the Northland, a mosaic of habitats hosts seasonal wildlife events equaled by few on Earth. Humpback and gray whales make the world’s longest migrations up the Pacific Coast. Grizzly bears congregate in the salmon-rich rivers of British Columbia and Alaska. Seabirds nest in massive rookeries in Scotland’s Western Isles. Our unique itineraries witness such events at intimate range, with interpretation from expert naturalists and personalized excursions not available to the standard tourist. You won’t find a more authentic way to experience the most rugged wilderness on the planet!

Ultimate Alaska Wildlife Photo Safari

While superlatives strive to convey the grandeur of Alaska, they never quite manage to capture the reality. Our “Ultimate Alaska Wildlife Safari ” trip gets you deeper into the remote parts of Alaska far from the tourist areas that dominate other trips. We position you and your camera to capture the grandeur of a calving glacier; or at river’s edge, freezing time with your camera to capture a salmon leaping from the water and into the mouth of a patiently waiting brown bear. This is Alaska “less discovered”: bigger, wilder and more amazing than you’ve imagined. You’ve got to see it for yourself.

Nature puts on few displays as arresting as Alaskan brown bears feeding on late-summer’s bounty.

Our private chartered boat offers an exclusive opportunity to follow and photogragh the bears along the shoreline as they fish, dig for clams and lope along the beach. Ashore, as we walk with our experienced guide, we have an even closer vantage point as we watch from a careful distance.
