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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
