Natural Habitat Adventures

With Earth Day around the corner on April 22, much will be made of preserving Mother Nature's creations of pristine forests, vast oceans and extraordinary wildlife. With this in mind, why not suggest clients take a nature expedition?  Grizzly bears on Kodiak Island

For 20 years, Natural Habitat Adventures has taken small groups of travelers—usually between eight and 16 people—all over the world to discover the Earth's wildlife and untouched environments. The company says its two Alaska itineraries are some of its most popular.

Natural Habitat Adventures' flagship tour is "Hidden Alaska," which journeys to the state's best wildlife spots, such as DenaliNational Park and BrooksFalls. The trip also provides guests with a stay at a backcountry lodge in Denali and a small-ship journey to a private island in Kenai Fjords. Tours for 2007 and 2008 begin in June and run through late August. For 2007, the cost is $6,795 per person, exclusive of travel to and from the starting and end points of the trip, gratuities and some meals.

"Grizzlies from Kodiak to Katmai" meanwhile, delivers exactly what its title suggests: hundreds of grizzly bears. Natural Habitat Adventures takes guests to Kodiak Island, where the 400-pound bears come to search for fish and dig for clams before the winter. The trip is operated from a small boat so that guides can navigate to areas few other tour operators go.

Trip dates for this year and next begin in July and run through late August. The 2007 rate is $5,595 per person and does not include travel to and from Kodiak, gratuities and add-on activities.
