No Alaskan experience is complete without traveling through Denali & Kenai. This tour is by far the most diverse offering in this dramatically scenic region. Activities includes a boat ride through Kenai Fjords for auklets, puffins, murrelets, whales, Sea Otters and Orca, and exploring the Denali highway for Smith’s Longspur, Arctic Warbler, Rock and Willow Ptarmigan, with excellent chances of bears and wolves. We then search the lush forests around Anchorage and Seward for American Three-toed Woodpeckers, Varied Thrush, Pine Grosbeak and more; certainly a grand finale to our Alaskan adventures.
