For anyone who loves birds, nature, and dramatic landscapes, a trip to Alaska is truly the trip of a lifetime. VENT has been offering tours to our 49th state for over 30 years. Our Alaska tour leaders, Kevin Zimmer, Barry Zimmer, David Wolf, and Brennan Mulrooney, are terrific guides who excel at showing participants Alaskan specialty birds in addition to many of the state’s other natural wonders. These leaders are among the best in the business at finding highly-sought birds such as Bristle-thighed Curlew, Northern Hawk Owl, Bluethroat, and many other great birds. Over the years, our Alaska tours also have recorded an extraordinary list of Asian rarities.
