This National Geographic Expedition Explores the Arctic State

This National Geographic expedition (titled 'Alaska's Inside Passage Photo Expedition') offers participants the chance to explore the Alaskan wildlife with a team of qualified photography experts.

Guests are invited to spend eight days sailing aboard either the National Geographic Sea Lion or National Geographic Sea Bird, going on what is described as a "voyage of discovery." Not only do participants have the opportunity to learn about Alaska's rich history and Native American heritage, they're also searching for wildlife such as humpback whales and orcas.

Other highlights throughout the trip include adventurous hikes, kayaking trips and sight-seeing tours. The trip begins in Alaska's capital, Juneau, and travels through to the town of Sitka, a small town with Russian roots.
