Reference number: 2342

From: £Contact us

Travelling on board a small yacht, this itinerary offers an unforgettable voyage to witness majestic glaciers, brown bears gorging on salmon, and humpback whales bubble-net feeding.

One fifth of the size of the continental USA, Alaska has the world's highest coastal mountain range and over half of its glaciers. Much of this wildlife-watching trip takes place within the confines of North America's immense Tongass National Forest, where you will explore the shoreline for intertidal creatures and keep a record of the various species of birds, plants and animals seen. The itinerary is deliberately flexible to make the most of wildlife sightings and favourable weather patterns.
