Alaska

Alaska Helicopter Expedition

Alaskan holidays should be high on the wish-list for those who enjoy the great outdoors, exploring the wilderness, hiking through the rainforest, or seeking out wildlife.

On a holiday to Alaska, you should expect to see a wide range of bird and sea life including golden eagles and vultures, whales and sea-otters, not to mention the indigenous brown bears that emerge from hibernation to gorge on the spawning salmon.

The season for an Alaskan holiday stretches from May, when the snow begins to melt and the spring flowers to blossom, through to September when the nights begin to close in, and the temperatures drop.

A holiday in Alaska should incorporate a visit to one of the many huge glaciers snaking through the valleys, and these should ideally be viewed from the water, for example in Glacier Bay, where you can watch open mouthed as huge pieces of ice fall from the front wall of the glacier into the water below, known as calving.

Expedition vessels in Alaska enable you to view the scenery and the flora from close quarters, as you explore in kayaks, on paddle boards, or rubber inflatables. Step ashore far from the towns and villages and you will be amazed by the lush vegetation, and captivated by the natural beauty of this region.

When to go:

If it is wildlife and breathtaking scenery you are after the best time to visit is during the summer months of June, July and August. Wildlife such as bears will have come out of hibernation to feast on the spawning salmon and the rich waters will be home to feeding whales.

What to pack: 

Practical, comfortable clothing is a must. Temperatures in the summer vary from the chilly to the warm, so layers of clothing are suitable, and waterproof clothing is essential. Sturdy walking shoes should be packed. This destination is all about the scenery and wildlife and therefore very appealing to photographers – remember to come well equipped as you are unlikely to be able to get everything you need locally.
