Any advice on travelling in the Aleutians? Limited budget!

It depends on your definition of "limited budget." I was there about 10 years ago on a photo shoot and it is NOT an easy or inexpensive destination.

Start your research here:

Good luck.

Thanks for the links Terry!

We are going to do some research looking for plants native to the Aleutians, and which are now widespread in Scotland. We have a small budget for travel that should be enough to get us there. But the more we can economise, the more islands we may be able to visit. Our current target is Unalaska, and I'd love to take the trusty tusty from Kodiak!

Where did you go in your photoshoot?

I was all over the islands with National Geographic. We had our own boat, float plane, etc.

Good luck. It's not easy or cheap...

Cheers,
Terry
