Backpacking the Last Wilderness, Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska. June 9-20. Witness the greatest wildlife migration on earth as spring arrives on the tundra and the 120,000-member Porcupine caribou herd begins its journey north.

In this untracked and threatened wilderness, our small group will backpack between glacier-fed rivers, taking time for close observation and photography. Charter flights included. (Rated M.)
