There’s no better way to see Alaska! Lindblad-National Geographic expedition ships are fully equipped with tools for exploration that enable you to:
- Venture into a land of mist shrouded fjords, tidewater glaciers and islands teeming with wildlife
- Hike through lush forests to cascading waterfalls, and ride Zodiacs into secluded inlets to look for brown bears
- See the Alaska undersea through live video
- Benefit from Lindblad’s 30+ years of experience and relationships in Alaska to see all you came for and more
Every day is active and engaging
You’ll have the opportunity to hike over spongy earth on trails used by bears for centuries or along boardwalks built over bogs and winding through forests. You’ll take expedition landing craft past floating icebergs for closer looks at glaciers, and each day you’ll have the option to walk or kayak, and to join a different naturalist as you choose: there are no assigned groups.
Encounter iconic and abundant wildlife
Brown bears. Humpback whales. Orcas. Steller sea lions. Bald eagles. Sure-footed mountain goats on steep cliffs. The wildlife of Alaska is legendary — see it in abundance.
Travel in excellent company
Along with the educational and group travel expertise brought by your faculty leaders, Ted and Michelle Johnson (see below for more info), you’ll explore under the sure guidance of an expedition leader, five veteran naturalists, including a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor and an undersea specialist, plus a wellness specialist — the largest and most knowledgeable expedition team in Alaska. Their knowledge and passion for Alaska is the key to your once-in-a-lifetime experience.
