Alaska Wildlife Holidays

From majestic grizzly bears to endearing sea otters, the wildlife in Alaska is as spectacular as the scenery. Close encounters with Alaska's wildlife both on land and on sea are a likely feature of most holidays to this remote state, whether you travel by car, rail, coach or boat making Alaska a must-visit destination for nature lovers.

From the Inside Passage to Denali National Park, wild and remote Nome to the Kenai Peninsula, look out for whales breaching, moose grazing, bald eagles soaring, otters playing and so much more.

Our collection of wildlife holidays in Alaska are designed to help maximise your chances of seeing the state's wild residents. To observe brown bears, we recommend visiting the grizzly hotspots of Katmai National Park and Admiralty Island or – to see the giant eponymous bears – Kodiak Island. For a multitude of whales, sail the Icy Strait or Frederick Sound.

Wherever you choose travel in Alaska, watching its wildlife is sure to be a highlight of your holiday.
