Welcome to the UI Alumni Network - EXPLORERS Alumni Travel Program: Big Ten Alaska Tour

ALASKAN FALLS AND FRONTIERS
ALL BIG TEN CRUISE
June 20-30, 2017

Immerse yourself in the unspoiled glory of Alaska, America's last frontier, as you cruise its pristine coastline with alumni and friends from the other 13 Big Ten schools. In this surreal expanse, relish the natural beauty of the Inside Passage before perusing port towns and learning about their enthralling histories. Nothing can prepare you for the magnitude and cerulean hues of the continent's glaciers, nor the panoramas you'll share with whales, otters, seals, bears and moose.

Book by Sept. 15, 2016, and receive:

Hosted by former Fighting Illini basketball star Jerry Hester, '97 LAS, and legendary CBS sportscaster Verne Lundquist.
