  • Stunning birds like Common and King eiders, Long-tailed Ducks, Long-tailed Jaegers, Willow Ptarmigans and much more offer up excellent photographic opportunities. 
  • In addition to the birds, we will be on the lookout for mammals that could include caribou, Grizzly Bear and Muskoxen.
  • Breathtaking tundra and Bering Sea scenery.
  • This is western Alaska and we have a good chance at finding or seeing a very rare bird or two, as Siberian vagrants are somewhat regular here.
