“This was the best of the best when it comes to Alaska trips. I loved all the places we went and everything we saw. This trip was made exceptional by the leadership of our guide!”
“Eric is a 'first class' leader who shares his expertise about wildlife and plants in an informative manner and with a much appreciated sense of humor. His care for the travelers and patience with some of the varied concerns and requests indicated his care and concern for the group.”
“This trip, with Karen, exceeded our expectations with regards to wildlife. The bears at Katmai were amazing and something we will never forget. The wildlife in Denali was wonderful too. We saw a bull moose, cow, and calf, Dall sheep, a sleeping wolf, golden eagles, ptarmigans, trumpeter swan, marmot, snowshoe hares, grizzlies and cubs. In Kenai Fjords we saw orcas, humpback whales, sea otter, sea lions, harbor seals, sea stars, bald eagles, puffins, and cormorants. The whole trip was fantastic!”
“We loved our time in Talkeetna. It was so good to be able to spend this time wandering in one of Alaska's small towns. Of all our overnights, this was the only one that truly allowed us to see and experience the rural Alaska life. So happy that this was part of our itinerary.”
“We thought Denali National Park was fabulous, the train ride wonderful and Brooks Lodge amazing - we certainly saw so many bears, just as we had hoped. We enjoyed Talkeetna, …We loved the Fjord trip and our evening at Fox Island with the best dinner of the trip - freshly caught and beautifully prepared halibut. The entire trip easily met and exceeded our expectations by far!”
"Fantastic bear and wildlife viewing - a once in a lifetime event. The trip was really well done and we enjoyed every minute of it. The small group and the knowledgeable guide made all the difference!!"
"Andrea was an excellent leader and a lot of fun. The whole trip was well done and more than just enjoyable. We felt that everything Natural Habitat did was done first-class, without pinching any pennies. This is important when traveling to Alaska's wild areas."
"Our guide was the best. She catered to our every whim and did so with humor and patience. Would I travel with Natural Habitat again? Yes. Their pure professionalism, enthusiasm of leaders, mix of interesting people and the wildlife encounters are the best."
"It was an adventurous trip with the float planes, the closeness of the bears and the spectacle of Mt. McKinley in the optional fly around -- you are maxed out at 13,000 feet and the top is still another 4,000 feet above you! Plus the constant vigilance for wild game was outstanding!"
"Everything was wonderful! I loved every minute of the trip. I would love to have Susan as a guide again. She is very professional and lots of fun. I cried when we left her. She was very kind and helpful to the whole group."
“While I’ve traveled for 35 years, 7 continents, including Ross Ice Shelf to see emperor penguins, I had never been to Alaska. Eric Rock (because of his knowledge of so many topics and his work background) made this the best (trip) I’ve ever had!”

“This was the trip of a lifetime to Alaska because of Eric, the small group we traveled with, and the beauty of the country with its animals and beauty.”
“This was a fantastic trip! It definitely lived up to and exceeded our expectations! The smaller groups make it easier to meet and to interact – everyone bonds and begins to gel as a unit. Our guide, Susan, was exceptional and a really fun person. She entertained us as much as we did her. Her knowledge of Alaska – the animals, the people, and culture – really made the trip a success!"
"This trip went above and beyond my expectations! What gorgeous country we experienced. I felt like every day brought a new and exciting adventure! What beautiful scenery and wildlife! This was one of the best NatHab trips, and I would highly recommend it!"
