Birders’ heaven

If conditions allow, we’ll take our small expedition boats to the remote island of St Matthew. 

Explore this dramatic isle in the centre of the Bering Strait – Alaska’s most remote destination. Dramatic jagged peaks rise from the ocean and soft plains cover the inland. Millions of seabirds come here to feed and breathe in the summer months. Indulge in the essence of expedition travel and set foot where few have been.
