This is an exceptional value birding trip with 8 days of birding from Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula to Denali National Park. The trip is designed for birders who want to experience Alaska and find many of the key specialty species, without adding extra travel to more remote birding destinations. The trip does include an optional extension to Nome, for those bird-watchers seeking to expand their Alaska birding adventure. Some of the interesting bird species we could see include Spruce Grouse, Willow Ptarmigan, Rock Ptarmigan, Pacific Loon, Short-tailed Shearwater, Red-faced Cormorant, Northern Goshawk, Black Turnstone, Red-necked Phalarope, Long-tailed Jaeger, Thick-billed Murre, Pigeon Guillemot, Marbled Murrelet, Ancient Murrelet, Parakeet Auklet, Rhinoceros Auklet, Horned Puffin, Tufted Puffin, Black-legged Kittiwake, Aleutian Tern, Arctic Tern, Northern Hawk Owl, American Three-toed Woodpecker, Gyrfalcon, Boreal Chickadee, Arctic Warbler, Northern Wheatear and Varied Thrush. If you add the Nome Extension, you have an excellent chance to add Arctic Loon, Bristle-thighed Curlew, Aleutian Tern, Bluethroat and Eastern Yellow Wagtail. Several mammal species are expected as well, especially during the boat trip and in Denali National Park. Some likely species include Steller Sea Lion, Sea Otter, Humpback Whale, Mountain Goat, Grizzly Bear, Moose, Caribou, Dall Sheep, and Arctic Fox.

$2,790 per Person with 8 Participants for 8 Days/7Nights And Nome Extension (3 Days and 3 Nights More) for $890
