Alaska, ‘The Last Frontier’, is a US state like no other, especially for lovers of the great outdoors! With more coastline than all the other 49 US states combined, 17 of the highest 20 US peaks, more than 3,000 rivers and over 3 million lakes, and more inland water than any other state, trekking through Alaska offers an endlessly evolving landscape of dramatic proportions. 

Scenic views of towering mountains and sparkling glaciers and waterways are abundant along Alaska’s highways.  Given its geographical location sitting mostly between 60⁰ and 70⁰ latitude in the Northern Hemisphere, it is a perfect location for viewing the Aurora Borealis. In a land where black, grizzly and polar bears, lynx, grey wolves, moose, bison and caribou roam free, the seas are equally enthralling, where you can view humpback whales, dolphins and porpoises. 

Our Alaska trip differs considerably according to when you visit, both remarkable in their own way, and whichever one you choose, you will want to return to experience the other. Depending on the time of year, master classes may include a study of the Aurora Borealis, nocturnal wildlife, geothermal renewable energy, and a look at the Alaska Pipeline.  ‘The Last Frontier’ also includes a number of fascinating science excursions including the Alaska Railroad, the Anchorage Museum and Imaginarium Discovery Center, the Kenai Fjords Resurrection Bay Cruise (whale watching), the Alaska Sea-Life Center, and the Alaska Wildlife ‘Big Game’ Conservation Center.
