Northern Lights, Midnight Sun, Glaciers & National Parks

Alaska’s natural attractions and resources are without a doubt one of the top draws of visitors to this unique destination. Once you have experienced the aurora borealis (northern lights), stayed up all night without even meaning to under Alaska’s midnight sun, or listened to a glacier crash into the ocean…you’ll completely understand what sets Alaska apart from most other places. From hot springs to the tundra-based life of the Arctic Circle, the lifestyles of Alaskans are integrally linked to nature in many fascinating ways.

Find out how on one of our Alaska nature tours which showcase mountains, glaciers and wildlife in what is still America’s “last frontier”.
