The Kingdom of the Monarchs

January 25 - 30, 2015 (6 Days)

Double occupancy: $2,995

HMNH Study Leader: Dr. Alfonso Alonso


One of the world’s most astounding natural events occurs each year in North America, featuring one of its most unlikely creatures, the delicate monarch butterfly. Up to 300 million monarchs set flight on a remarkable 2,500-mile journey from the northeastern U.S. and Canada to their ancestral wintering grounds in the volcanic mountains of central Mexico. Until recently, the location of their breeding grounds remained a mystery. How an infant generation of butterflies finds it anew each year is still an enigma. Join our small group to experience this moving phenomenon, as well as Mexico ’s charming colonial villages.
