Tauck and BBC Earth collaborated to create a new family-friendly tour for 2015 — Alaska: Call of the Wild. On this trip, families will meet sled dogs, ride on a jet boat, go on a geocaching treasure hunt in the wilderness, hike at a lake and experience a flightseeing adventure above Mount McKinley and Chugach National Forest. Additionally, families will learn about endangered wildlife at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center and meet rehabilitated animals like moose and grizzly bears.
Children under 18 must be booked in a room with at least one adult, and children 11 and under get a discount of $175. The tour includes all gratuities and 18 meals. Tours depart regularly from June to August 2015, and prices start at $3,857 for eight days.
