Alaska Eco Tours
Alaska is home to some of the most stunning scenery on the planet. One of the northernmost areas on Earth, it has its fair share of coastline and mountains, and it’s no stranger to wilderness. For outdoor lovers who want to experience the best that Mother Nature has to offer, there are a number of Alaska eco tour guides who will help immerse you in nature’s finest.
The Northern Lights is synonymous with Alaska, and seasoned travellers make the pilgrimage every year to see the colourful bands of light dance in the night sky. There is nothing quite like the thrill of seeing brilliant yellow, green and blue patterns span the horizon about 70 miles above the earth’s surface. Peak viewing season is in the dead of winter, but timing can be a gamble at the best of times so joining a Northern Lights tour is your best bet if it’s the lights you’ve come to see.
While Alaska’s stunning scenery speaks for itself, the diverse array of wildlife is another thing to behold. Caribou, moose, brown bears and polar bears; you name it, Alaska has got it. There are also an abundance of bird and marine species, but guided wilderness tours will allow you to get up close and personal with wildlife in their natural habitat. Bear viewing tours will also take you to the centre of the action (safely!) and allow you to walk and sit on the same river banks as bears, and watch them go about their daily life.Read More ...
