This Alaska Photo Tour is one of our more scenic and spectacular trips. When you hear Alaska, you always think about wilderness, about freedom, about stunning landscapes and wildlife. A place to enjoy Nature at its best.
Those are the feelings we want to share with you during our trip. We will be visiting some of the most amazing places in Alaska, always searching for the best possible scenes to photograph.
During this time, at the end of summer and beginning of autumn, we may even have the chance to enjoy some of the first beautiful autumn colors in places like Denali National Park, with the amazing red tones of the tundra, or in the Matanuska Valley.
We will be visiting some of the most amazing National Parks in Alaska and the US, such as Denali, Kenai Fjords and Wrangell St. Elias Parks. In these parks, we will experience frequent photo opportunities, so we will make the best of our time there.
Among the many spectacular locations that we will be photographing, we will find glaciers, waterfalls, fjords, lakes, forests, stunning peaks, volcanoes and mountain ranges… An Alaska Photo Tour like ours is a wonderful opportunity for landscape and Nature photography lovers, due to the numerous impressive locations we will be visiting during our time there.
On the other hand, Alaska is also world famous for its wildlife. During this trip, we will probably spot animals like moose, black and grizzly bears, caribous, mountain goats, dall sheep… We will try to spot some of these animals, always ready to photograph them.
We may also take some boat cruises to see some spectacular glaciers, from where, at the same time, there are good chances that we will see orcas, sea otters, puffins, etc.
And, of course, the majestic bald eagle, one of the most spectacular and photogenic birds on Earth.
On most of the days of the trip, we will wake up early to capture the beautiful colors during sunrise, so we can get the best possible images. We will also stay out late until night has come, so we can enjoy the wonderful lights and colors of the wonderful sunsets of Alaska.
At the same time, and once again, if we are lucky enough, we might even have the chance to see (and, of course, to photograph) the magical Northern Lights. Although it is not as likely during this period, they are sometimes seen at this time of the year, especially in places like Denali National Park. Anyhow, we will be studying the aurora borealis and weather forecasts each day to see if there are good odds we can photograph them.
To sum up, if you really love landscape and Nature photography, this will be an unforgettable trip for you. We will be constantly searching for great photo opportunities, so you will come back with thousands of images on your memory cards!
Don’t wait any more and come join us in this fabulous adventure to capture all the beauty of the last frontier. Come with us Into The Wild!.
