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’ Alaskan guided 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.
