At a Glance

Fly, bus, train and sail 1,100 miles through the Last Frontier. Fly to Barrow for a look at how Inupiat Eskimos live off land and sea and to celebrate the summer solstice. Watch the sun wheel around the sky, never setting below the horizon. Meet research scientists, take a field trip to see muskoxen, caribou and reindeer at the University of Alaska Fairbanks large animal research center and stand underneath the Alaska Pipeline. Spend two nights at the end of the road deep in the heart of Denali National Park, then take the Alaska Railroad to Seward’s Alaska SeaLife Center, where researchers share their work rehabilitating the ecosystem after the Exxon Valdez oil spill.
