No state is as vast, as stunning and as wild as Alaska. While most travel companies boast that they show you Alaska, the truth is that 99 percent of Alaska visitors end up in the same crowded complex of bland hotels, buses and cruise ships, missing the genuine wilderness and wildlife spectacles that make the 49th state so remarkable. That’s why we’ve crafted our Ultimate Alaska Wildlife Safari differently. More of our field staff call Alaska home than anywhere else, giving us unmatched insider knowledge of Alaska’s wildlife and scenic wonders. The result? Our guests enjoy an immersive Alaska nature adventure that is simply second to none:
- Just 14 Travelers for the Best Alaska Experience!
With an average maximum of just 14 guests, you’ll enjoy plenty of space on our vehicles, the full attention of our staff and, most importantly, more personal nature experiences that cannot be attained in large bus groups or on board ships.
- The Optimal Alaska Wildlife Itinerary
Our meticulously crafted Alaska wildlife itinerary has been specially designed in conjunction with WWF for close-up wildlife viewing and has been enhanced annually for a quarter of a century – this is our flagship Alaska adventure!
- Stay in the Heart of Denali
Journey 90 miles into the center of Denali National Park and overnight at a first-class backcountry lodge – most visitors ride crowded shuttle buses and see little beyond the park entrance.
- Our Private Yacht
View glaciers, whales and birdlife in Kenai Fjords from our private yacht, rather than from the crowded deck of a large cruise ship carrying hundreds of tourists.
- Stay on a Private Island
Overnight on a private island in Kenai Fjords where we are the only guests – a rare experience of genuine wilderness.
- Visit the Bears of Brooks Falls
Fly by float plane to world-famous Brooks Lodge in the heart of Katmai National Park for close-up views of Alaskan brown bears at Brooks Falls – you’ll never get this experience on a cruise ship or tour bus! The lodge is within walking distance of the falls where as many as 50 bears can be viewed fishing along the mile-and-a-half-long Brooks River during the peak of the salmon season. For many visitors, this is the highlight of their entire Alaska adventure.
- The World's Finest Naturalist Guides
Natural Habitat Adventures is renowned for employing the finest naturalist guides on the planet! Our Alaska Expedition Leaders average more than 15 years’ guiding experience each and receive additional training from world-class WWF scientists. Expedition Leaders remain with our private groups throughout their entire adventure. They are not “ship lecturers” or lodge-based guides who see different travelers every day. Rather, they are the Alaska’s most qualified, dedicated and passionate natural history guides, regaling our guests with their insights into the region while remaining close at hand to ensure safety and comfort in every respect. See Expedition Leader bios and traveler comments regarding the quality of our leaders.
