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.
This incredible journey includes 8-days and 7-nights in Alaska with breakfasts and dinners daily as you explore Fairbanks, Seward and Anchorage. An engaging experience involving Geography, Animal Science, Marine Science, and Earth & Space Sciences, this tour combines excellent academic components with fun activities and the breath-taking backdrop of stunning Alaska!
