John Hall’s Alaska is launching a lineup of new Alaska tours in 2023 and is set to debut the Black Label product designation for travelers interested in an even more elevated experience.
The new 11-day Alaska Bears & Bering Sea tour will headline the 2023 season. Setting off from Nome, the itinerary continues on to Denali, Knik River and Kodiak for bear viewing and flightseeing experiences. Bookings are now available for this limited capacity tour.
“Our Alaska Bears & Bering Sea tour was made for the guests who seek wildlife and adventure,” said John Hall’s Alaska president and founder John Hall Sr, in a press release statement. “In this tour, we’ve pieced all the major highlights from some of our other packages and put it into one. For 11 days, guests will experience everything from giant Kodiak brown bears to flightseeing over volcanoes and glaciers for an ultimate small group guided package.”
Highlights of the trip include:
- Journey on the Alaska Railroad’s GoldStar service in glass-dome cars.
- Take a Denali National Park wildlife tour with a stop at the park’s visitor center.
- Join an exclusive dog sledding presentation at Dream A Dream kennel.
- View Kodiak brown bears on a flightseeing tour at Kodiak Wildlife Reserve.
- Explore World War II bunkers on a visit to historic Fort Abercrombie.
- Learn history in Anchorage, Nome and Kodiak on city tours or museum visits.

“All of our trips are imbued with our company philosophies. We choose to partner with small, locally owned businesses,” Hall said. “Because we live there, work there, guide there, and have been offering tours in Alaska since 1983, we have developed many lasting relationships and that helps set our trips apart.”
