The Pribilof Islands, located in the Bering Sea, 771 air miles west of Anchorage, are often referred to as the “Galapagos Islands of the North.” They get this title due to the islands' similar volcanic origins and isolation from other land masses, and the abundance of wildlife, often seen in very close proximity.

During our Pribilof Islands adventure, we will explore St. Paul Island, which is famous for its seabird nesting colonies, particularly on the steep western and southern cliffs. St. Paul also hosts huge rookeries of northern fur seals and is an extraordinary place to watch and photograph wildlife.

This trip is available with or without the earlier trip, "Alaska: Birding Anchorage, the Kenai Peninsula, and Nome" (June 8-16).

Round trip air transportation from Anchorage to St. Paul Island is included, as are lodging, meals, and guided tours on St. Paul Island. Meals, musum admissions, and other activities in the Anchorage area are not included. Single rooms are not available on this trip.
