The Rockies, Voyage of the Glaciers & Arctic Circle

In the splendid isolation of Alaska, the air you breathe is rarefied air. The sights you see are rarely seen. The sounds you hear are rarely heard. And at any point in time you can be overcome by the feeling that you’re witnessing something remarkable and, yes, rare. From the fauna to the flora to the many spectacular formations, Canada and Alaska are unlike anywhere else. Where else will you encounter such a plethora of unique creatures, from the musk ox to the grizzly bear? Where else are nature’s acts of wonder so immediately accessible? Where else are there such endless vistas in such plentiful supply? You’ll be transported to places that are completely off the map of most people’s lives, as well as landmarks of rare majesty, from the Rocky Mountains to Alaska’s College Fjord. How often do you get the opportunity? Very rarely.
