In an age of industrial tourism the Alaska travel experience has become increasingly homogenized. With more companies offering discount cruises and package tours the true Alaska has become elusive. We provide an Alaska travel experience that offers solitude, wilderness, adventure and abundant wildlife, the qualities that have made Alaska famous. We utilize fun and exciting activities such as hiking, kayaking, white water rafting and small ship cruising to reach hidden coves, unknown trails, remote rivers and true wilderness. Scenic flights save valuable travel time while highlighting scenic grandeur from above. Enjoy an extended stay in Denali National Park's remote wilderness rather than a day tour at the parks entrance. Utilize remote waterways, whether by raft, kayak or small ship, to access pristine wilderness and observe wildlife in its natural habitat.

Our groups are small, creating an intimate and interactive adventure travel experience.
