Wild Alaska

Introducing Earth Journeys... Created by Tauck and BBC Earth

2015 Prices From $6,590 for 10 Days - Tauck World Discovery

New for 2015, explore the wild heart of Alaska with Tauck and BBC Earth on small group departures averaging 26 Tauck guests! Our ten-day tour takes you away from the well-traveled routes of the Inside Passage to less-visited places of spectacular beauty and one-of-a-kind experiences... flightseeing the vast glacier-clad landscapes and peaks of Denali (America’s highest mountain)... cruising the Kenai Fjord, known for its resident sea lions, dolphins, whales, bald eagles and dramatic vistas... bear-watching on Crescent Lake in salmon season, where the brown bears are close and numerous... making canine friendships at a kennel that raises champion sled dogs... wilderness hikes with an expert naturalist guide who offers invaluable knowledge and insights... meeting wildlife (like bison, elk, bears, and caribou) up close at a refuge for displaced and orphaned animals... gadgets and equipment used by professional wildlife photographers and filmmakers such as camera traps (for photographing wildlife after hours) and shotgun microphones / specialized microphones (for sounds not readily accessible to human ears)... and multiple-night stays at outstanding wilderness lodges (with all the comforts of home), including Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge (where the dining room offers panoramic views of Denali and the Alaskan Range); Seward Windsong Lodge, set in a wooded glacier valley beside the Resurrection River; and Knik River Lodge, a colony of first-class cabins (and a gourmet restaurant) surrounded by the snowcapped peaks of the Chugach Mountains.
