Denali National Park, Alaska

Alaska

Alaska done right encompasses this great land as well as its outlying islands all the way into the Bering Sea. Zegrahm Expeditions’ Alaska tours uncover countless natural treasures of the North Pacific: pristine national parks, spectacularly beautiful bays, dazzling fjords, dense forests, rushing rivers, and incredible wildlife, from brown bears and Arctic foxes to puffins and red-legged kittiwakes. Our Alaska travel adventures include everything from visits to a Chukchi Village and Kodiak Island to Zodiac excursions to the Aleutian Islands and Katmai National Park. Always keeping an eye toward the path less traveled, our Alaska tours provide one of the most up-close experiences of this northern natural wonder.

    On Location: St. George and the Pribilof Islands

    August 4, 2010 | Blog Post

    This morning, we arrived at one of the world’s great wildlife spectacles: a northern fur seal rookery in the Bering Sea’s remote Pribilof Islands. The roars of the male fur seals would occasionally cease just long enough that we could hear the squeals of the tiny month-old pups.

    This morning expedition leader Mike Messick assembled us for a Zodiac cruise around the Baby Islands where we had great views of the common eiders (with chicks), tufted puffins, pigeon guillemots, and a peregrine falcon. The stars of the day were the whiskered auklets, as the Baby Islands offer one of the best places in the world to see these birds.

    Morning light revealed a low gray cloudbank blanketing the 700-foot tall peaks of steep-sided King Island—the first stop on our Wild Alaska and the Bering Sea expedition. We bundled up, and carefully made our way down to the Zodiacs for an early morning exploration of this spectacular place.

    On Location: Alaska’s Aleutian Islands

    July 30, 2009 | Blog Post

    After a morning visit to the port of Dutch Harbor, our captain navigated the Clipper Odyssey towards the pass between Akutan and Unalaska Islands, our passage from the Bering Sea into the North Pacific. The upwelling of cold nutrient-rich water around the Aleutian Islands is legendary, and its productivity was evidenced by the huge flocks of birds swarming around the ship.

    The Pribilof Islands are known for the dense fog that regularly envelops them throughout the summer months, and today was no exception. We couldn’t see the island of St. George from the ship, nor for most of our short Zodiac ride to shore.

    July 21, 2009 | Blog Post

    As the Clipper Odyssey steamed north towards the Arctic Circle, the seas calmed so dramatically that the surface took on a mirror-like quality. Even the ubiquitous fog began to burn off, with some sun creeping down to warm our skin, and bits of blue sky visible overhead.

    On Location: Alaska’s Geographic Harbor

    July 11, 2009 | Blog Post

    With the early morning sun illuminating the peaks of the Alaska Peninsula, we gathered out on deck to watch our approach into Geographic Harbor in Katmai National Park. This area is known for its brown bears, so with binoculars in hand we scoured the shoreline and open areas in search of them. The calls of marbled murrelets echoed across the bay as we made our way into the inner harbor.

    Alaska or Bust

    April 19, 2009 | Blog Post

    I had a grandfather who came to Alaska during the Depression, when he was a young man. He rambled around a good bit and tried his hand at various things: commercial fishing, prospecting, mining in the Fortymile country... Then he came back to the Lower 48 to start a family.

    The Curious Walrus or Odobenus Rosmarus

    October 20, 2007 | Blog Post

    The walrus is a visually peculiar creature. To see one up close is to understand why scientists called it Odobenus rosmarus, tooth-walker, and why, in Old Norse, they were known as hval-hross, whale-horses. Indubitably, the walrus is a curious beast.
