Natural Habitat Adventures

Ultimate Alaska Wildlife Safari

See More of the Last Frontier on Our Small-Group Wildland Immersion
While superlatives strive to convey the grandeur of Alaska, they never quite manage to capture the reality. Our Ultimate Alaska Wildlife Safari does, however. In the company of top naturalist guides, we take you farther afield from standard routes for a genuine Alaskan wilderness adventure. Explore historic Talkeetna and fly from this mountaineering base to land on a glacier on the slopes of Denali, the tallest mountain in North America. Float among icebergs on the lagoon in front of Spencer Glacier and raft the gentle Placer River beneath the icy peaks of the Chugach Range. 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: bigger, wilder and more enthralling than you even imagined!

Want to See the Real Alaska? Choose Nat Hab

No state is as vast, stunning and wild as Alaska. While most companies claim they show you Alaska, the truth is that 99% of visitors end up in the same crowded complex of bland hotels, big buses and giant cruise ships, missing the genuine wilderness and wildlife spectacles that make the 49th State stand out. That’s why we’ve crafted a different approach to Alaska, with insider knowledge of Alaska’s unique places, wildlife and scenic wonders. The result? You'll get an immersive Alaska nature adventure that's heads above the rest.

  1. A Small Group for a Richer Nature Experience
    With a maximum of 14 travelers, you’ll enjoy plenty of room on our vehicles, personalized attention from your Expedition Leader, and, most importantly, quieter and more immersive nature experiences you can't get as part of a large bus tour or aboard a huge cruise ship with thousands of other passengers.
  2. The Optimal Alaska Wildlife Itinerary
    Our itinerary offers the best chances to see Alaska's famous wildlife, from the fishing brown bears of Brooks Falls to the marine life of Kenai Fjords. We've enhanced it annually for more than 30 years to create a flagship Alaska adventure in which we take great pride.
  3. Private Flightseeing in Denali National Park & Land on a Glacier
    Take a thrilling fixed-wing plane flight to Denali, viewing the famous Kahiltna Base Camp where mountaineering expeditions begin, and the sister peaks of Mt. Hunter and Mt. Foraker. Conditions permitting, we'll land on a glacier on The Great One's flank! Please be aware that inclement weather sometimes forces the cancellation of our flight. 
  4. Cruise Kenai Fjords Aboard Our Private Chartered Boat
    View glaciers, icebergs, whales, seals, sea lions, otters and abundant birdlife in Kenai Fjords National Park aboard our private chartered boat, rather than from the crowded deck of an excursion boat or a cruise ship carrying thousands.
  5. Stay on a Private Island in Kenai Fjords
    Overnight at a secluded beachfront lodge on private Fox Island in Kenai Fjords, for a rare experience of genuine solitude in the Alaskan wilderness.
  6. See the Brown Bears of Brooks Falls
    Very few Alaska tour itineraries include Katmai National Park to view the legendary brown bears fishing at world-famous Brooks Falls. With us, you'll see these enormous bears up close! From the "rustic luxury" of our base at Gold Creek Lodge in nearby King Salmon, we fly by floatplane for daily excursions to the Brooks River and Falls area. You’ll never get this experience via cruise ship or tour bus! 
  7. The World's Finest Naturalist Guides
    Natural Habitat Adventures is renowned for employing the finest naturalist guides on the planet, and our Alaska Expedition Leaders receive additional training and resources from WWF scientists. Expedition Leaders remain with our private groups throughout the entire itinerary. 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 and expertise while ensuring your safety and comfort. See Expedition Leader bios and traveler comments regarding the quality of our leaders.
  8. Our Quality-Value Guarantee Ensures Your Superior Alaska Experience
    With Natural Habitat Adventures, you receive our exclusive guarantee, which clearly states that we will meet the lofty expectations we set in our promotional materials. To our knowledge, this is the most ambitious guarantee made by any adventure travel company. Read our important promise.
  9. Feel Good About Your Carbon-Neutral Journey
    We care deeply about our planet, as we know you do. When you travel with us, the carbon emissions from your trip are 100% offset—including your round-trip flights from home. Natural Habitat Adventures has been the world’s first carbon-neutral travel company since 2007.
