There is truly so much that you can experience while you are in Alaska. The most common question we receive is how to travel to Alaska? Most people who visit only get to experience a tiny portion of the state. Alaska is massive! Our state is about 2.5 times the state of Texas with less than one million people. There is so much to explore here. People often cruise, drive themselves, or take group land tours. All options offer something unique and our preferred way is on our small group guided land tour.
Which option is best: Cruising? Self-drive? Guided Land Tour?
Cruising allows you to see the massive coastline, but you miss out on what truly makes Alaska special: the immense wilderness. Others choose to drive themselves. While that option seems like a good idea, Alaska is unlike any place you have ever traveled. Roads are long, and stops are few & far between. It takes hours to get from one destination to the next & often leaves people feeling like they are missing out on parts of the state. With our guided land tours we take the planning out of your hands and provide you with a vacation to relax & enjoy the adventure. Our guided land tours of Alaska allow you to see so many different parts of Alaska you will have a hard time deciding which place and adventure were your favorites.
Alaska is best experienced through a guide that knows Alaska well.
Our guides are all local Alaskans. Most have grown up in Alaska so the roads, stops & scenery are second nature. We are able to stop along our adventures & point out history as well as share local stories that most would miss by driving this alone. Alaska’s scenery is breathtaking but the local stories help tie you to the land. Hearing about how your guide caught their first salmon on the river you just crossed, or rode their snowmachine over the mountain ranges you can see, or assisted with swift water rescues across the state makes you feel like more than just a tourist. We have guides that help with the Iditarod sled dog race, and guides that have more hunting & fishing stories than you could dream of. There is more to see & learn by being connected to the people that call Alaska home. If you are truly looking to experience Alaska, a guided land tour is the way to go.
