Seward - Homer, Alaska
Ride a train into the very heart of Alaska's wilderness, dog sled with a competitor of the world famous Ididatrod, ride horses into a beautiful high mountain pass, get rocked by waves as large chunks of ice calve into the ocean, play with a giant Steller sea lion, whitewater raft in a glacier fed river, watch the acrobatic puffin, and enjoy the incredible scenery of Alaska.

Catch unbelievably large halibut, kayak among the awesome bald eagle, take a helicopter to explore a glacier, dig for clams, watch waves of salmon as they swim upstream to spawn, canoe with beautiful snow white swans, and watch a brilliant red sunset over a smoldering volcano. Continue >>
