May 2017 - Zaandam to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska
Great experience of the wilderness and the beauty abound. I loved the helicopter ride to the Mendenhall Glacier where we experience walking on the glacier for about 30 minutes with special boots. An environmentalist spoke to us about the glaciers and animal life. We saw all kinds of animals on the land portion of the tour...a grizzly bear was about 50 yards from out bus at one time and we got wonderful video of him. I think we saw every kind of animal there except a Fox. The cruise portion was great especially in Glacier Bay where we saw walls of ice falling into the sea....wow, what a beautiful sight to behold....God's Country !!!!!!! Denali Park Tour was such an experience and we would highly recommend it. Great vacation....Just be sure to take plenty of warm clothing...cold, cold, cold..
