The Royal Botanic Garden was home to a large colony of native Grey-headed Flying Foxes, a large species of fruit bat until they were evicted by repeated playing of extremely loud recorded noise because of the significant damage to trees used for roosting. Some can still be seen outside the Garden were they eat fruits from the fig trees at night.
Traveling with Lindblad Expeditions is an exceptional experience.
After our trip to the Galapagos Islands in 2006 we came to say: "Once Lindblad, always Lindblad".
And here we are again, on a quest to explore Alaska.
This trip is about to show us two very different areas of the state:
The Inside Passage along the old-growth temperate rainforest and Denali National Park.
Expedition Diary of Heiko and Gisela Spallek: In 2006, we traveled with our two daughters, Alexandra and Sophia (then 8 and 5 years old), to the Galapagos Islands. Traveling with Lindblad Expeditions, we spent an active week on the islands, being unbelievable close to the unique animals on the land and in the ocean. We have wonderful memories about this unique trip - our "best ever."
