South Denali Birding Tour

As the summer sun returns, millions of birds flood into Alaska from as far as Southeast Asia, New Zealand, and Antarctica. They are here to nest, and the sound of bird song fills the air. Later in the summer, baby birds are everywhere, bulking up for long journeys or longer winters. Your guide, a local expert birder, will take you to pristine habitats such as boreal forest, rivers, and lakes. You will use binoculars, a spotting scope, and your ears to search for residents and migrants including trumpeter swans, Arctic terns, spruce grouse, American dippers, boreal chickadees, loons, eagles, and thrushes. Early summer is best (May/June).
Three hours: $345 for up five persons, $69 per additional person.
Six hours: $495 for up to five persons, $99 per additional person.
