“My husband and I went on the 10 day tour with AAU. From the time we made our reservations and chose our options, the office staff, Erica and Corky, were always there to answer our questions and keep us informed. We arrived at the Embassy Suite and were picked up the next day for our trip to begin. We traveled with 11 other folks that were so compatible. We had so much laughter. The vehicle we traveled in was top of the line with large windows for viewing the sights as we traveled to each destination. Our guide often spotted wildlife and would stop safely so we could observe and take pictures. Our guide, “Will”, a resident of AK was just the BEST. Knowledgeable, funny and patient. He helped one traveler who had some difficulty walking on the Glacier but with his help she was able to go all the way out and back being reassured and assisted the whole way. Accommodations and food were great. We did rafting, kayaking, flightseeing, train, cruise on the Kenai (my favorite) landed on a glacier, airboat and jet boat to the Knik Glacier, and Bear Viewing. All the guides we had on those trips were great too. We look forward to returning to AK for another adventure. THANKS AAU for a wonderful experience.” Susie & Max, California
“Thank you AAU for an amazing Discovery vacation tour! Everything from the start of the process at booking to the finish of the trip was perfect! Our guide Monty, was wonderful & made us feel like we were part of his family. Anything we or the rest of the group needed was taken care of. Even after we were on our own, Ms. Erica took care of us when our vouchers went missing, and faxed them to our cabin. The weather was amazing and we were left speechless at the beauty of Alaska. We are already planning a trip back in the near future! Thank you so much for the experience of a life time!!” Sandie & Jim, Florida
“I just wanted to say a special thank you for helping us plan and enjoy our Alaska trip with AAU!! It was a wonderful place to experience, even with my dad’s deteriorating health. You made me feel better with all the arrangement and in giving me all the emergency contact information while I was away and Terry, our wonderful tour guide was a very interesting/knowledgeable person to spend a week with. We traveled with very nice families and enjoyed our time. Terry was so nice and diplomatic in both helping the handle any situation while helping us all receive what we wanted. He is a wonderful guide and we would travel with him again. Thanks again for the wonderful memories!!” Nancy & Neil, California
“I wanted to tell you that I had such a great trip on the 8 Day Best of Alaska 7/14-7/21 trip. Best of Alaska it was! We all loved our guide, Dwight. And our group of 14 all got along so well. We are staying in touch exchanging pictures. Also, all of the tours you arranged for us (white water rafting, flight-seeing, air boat tour, train ride, fjords tour, sea kayaking, dog sled riding) – all of those folks were top-notch. And so were all of the accommodations along the way. Even the weather cooperated for the most part. I have ZERO complaints and only high praise. I will be sure to recommend you to my friends. Everyone I know does a cruise to Alaska – but I think my photos and fun stories are making my friends re-think whether a cruise is really the best way to go. We did SO much more and saw SO much more than people do on a cruise. I’m so glad we did the trip and you all made it an excellent experience. I hope our paths cross again some day. Thank you again for some wonderful memories.” Susan & Patricia, Texas
“We just got done with our tour of AK and I just wanted to let you know that it was really wonderful! We enjoyed ourselves immensely! Thanks a lot for all you did in arranging this tour. We had an amazing Alaska experience and we are really glad we chose to come here for our honeymoon/anniversary! Our tour guide Monty was the best! He was very friendly and informative and he kept the bus nice and clean for us. At first he was our tour guide and at the end he was our friend! He was also very helpful with everything and had everything down pat. Thanks again for everything! God bless.” Jesse & Lauri, Ohio
“We have just returned home from our fabulous Alaska holiday. Thank you very much for your excellent arrangements and recommendations. Every thing was superb. Our land tour guide, was excellent! You and your colleagues have made Alaska one of our most memorable trips. Thank you!” Michelle, Hong Kong
“My husband and I felt the Alaska experience we had with Alaska Adventure Unlimited was the dream trip we had hoped it would be. From the initial information gathering phone call until we were dropped at the Anchorage airport to begin our journey home, everything went perfectly. The small group we traveled with soon became a cohesive body and we shared many exciting and hilarious times together. “Ki”, our guide, was phenomenal and never shown us anything but patience and command of every situation. Thank you for this indescribable experience.” Marilynn & Ernie
“Alaska Adventure Unlimited made our Alaska Summer Vacation the most amazing and wonderful experience! Our tour guide, “Dwight” was the main reason for our very fun and informative adventures. The small group tour allowed us to see more of Alaska and move faster from place to place. We made amazing new friends for life and would encourage everyone to make their Alaska Vacation dream come true with Alaska Adventure Unlimited. Thanks for the vacation of a life time!” Sherri
“Our trip with AAU was fantastic — It far exceeded our expectations! Our guide was so knowledgeable about the area and the people. Every detail for each day was planned perfectly, with no hiccups along the way. We have already recommended the tour to others, and are already planning our next trip to Alaska!” Linda
“The AAU Discovery of Alaska tour was fantastic. We hated to leave when it was over. Our tour Guide was outstanding- very knowledgeable, caring, flexible, and dedicated to making our tour the best it could be. The activities were all they were billed to be, and the small group size made everything doable. We left with wonderful memories of Alaska and our tour.” Carl
“Alaskan Adventures Unlimited gave us the trip of a lifetime. From start to finish every thing we did centered around our interests. The smaller size of the tour made it easy to accommodate everyone. The guide was extremely informational and very willing to make all our dreams come true. We can’t think of a thing we change.” Rose Ann
“It was truly a great trip which we’ll be talking about for years. I wish more of our grandkids had opted to go; but this size bunch was about right. We also thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to travel with the two other families and share the experiences with them. It was nice that the kids had peers to talk to instead of always to parents/g-parents. Thanks again.” Lynn
“Thanks for an EXCELLENT adventure! Everything – from booking to the completion of the trip – was first rate. We were reluctant to take a tour, but this was a great choice and exceeded our expectations.” Nancy
“Dwight was an amazing guide whose talent for sharing Alaska is just amazing – he really made the trip personal for each of us, shared his history of Alaska as well as its history – was available 24/7 and was one of the best tour guides we have encountered and we have traveled a lot. Your gift to us was unexpected but is one of the items I cherish the most.I loved everything about the trip – the chalet was spectacular and no one really believes what we accomplished in 8 short days!! Thank you so much.” Alice & Ida Jean

Get set for awesome sights like this on your Kenai Fjords National Park tour!
There are endless things to see and do on an Alaskan vacation. One attraction that has a LOT of what people come to Alaska for – wilderness, wildlife, glaciers – is Kenai Fjords National Park!
Kenai Fjords National Park is 1,000 square miles of some of the most impenetrable and gorgeous wilderness in Alaska. Kenai Fjords is on the southern coast of the Kenai Peninsula. The park was named for the many fjords that were carved by glaciers sliding down the mountains into the sea.
The park was initially established as a National Monument in 1978, then a National Park in 1980. Its borders encircle the Harding Icefield, one of the world’s largest icefields and the park’s crowning feature. Many come just to see this 936-square-mile icefield and thrill at the sight of a calving glacier. You will too. It’s not everyday you get to see the birth of an iceberg!
Alaska Adventure Unlimited is an Alaska-owned company that specializes in All Inclusive Alaska Land Tours and Vacations. Our expert-guided Alaska land tours are perfect for individuals or groups of up to 14. The tours are aimed at all ages and ability levels and the activity-driven scenic tours offer travelers worry free all inclusive adventure.

Meet beautiful huskies and experience the thrill of the Iditarod with Alaska Adventure Unlimited! We offer a variety of ways to get out on Alaska dog sledding adventure!
The Iditarod is Alaska’s annual, 1000 mile long, dog sled race. This iconic yearly event conjures up romantic visions of hardship, endurance, and heroic men and dogs. Even in the beginning, when it was simply for supplies and mail, the journey was worthy of respect and awe.
You’ll have the time of your life on a Knik Glacier Airboat Tour on Lake George in Alaska’s Mat-Su Valley. At 28 miles long, 6 miles wide, and over 1000 feet thick, Knik Glacier is one of Alaska’s grandest natural attractions!
Knik Glacier is one of the largest accessible glaciers in south central Alaska! A visit to Knik Glacier is always an Alaska vacation highlight, making it a real pleasure to share with visitors.
Did you know that there are almost as many types of Alaska glacier tours as there are types of glaciers? You can hike or walk on some glaciers, raft past them, flightsee them, even land a skiplane plane on them! With Alaska Adventure Unlimited, you can do all that and more!
Most folks seem familiar with the kind of Alaska glacier tours where you visit a glacier from the water. While this can be a great experience, especially if you’re lucky enough to be there when a glacier calves an iceberg, it’s definitely not the only kind of glacier tour!
There are a thousand and one reasons to visit Alaska but easily one of the most popular is for an Alaska bear viewing tour. And why not? These magnificent creatures are big, beautiful, and breathtaking to behold in the wild!
There’s nothing quite like seeing an Alaskan brown bear in its natural habitat. Seeing them in zoos and photos can be fascinating and fun but it just isn’t quite the same as seeing them in person in their natural environment.
Looking for an Alaska tour company that provides truly family-friendly Alaskan vacations? Look no further! Alaska Adventure Unlimited offers a wide range of kid-friendly Alaska tours!
It can be frustrating when you plan a trip for the whole family only to discover that children aren’t actually welcome. There are a lot of tour companies out there that won’t accommodate children. It’s even worse when they say they are family-friendly, then fail to honestly consider your children’s needs, treating them more like baggage than guests.
At Alaska Adventure Unlimited, our family-friendly Alaskan vacations really are kid-friendly. More than just making sure they have a seat outside the baggage compartment, our tours are designed to keep all members of the family entertained.
That is why Alaska Adventure Unlimited is the #1 provider of family-friendly Alaskan vacations!
You’ll experience Alaska’s most popular wildlife and glacier cruise on a Kenai Fjords Cruise in Kenai Fjords National Park!
Kenai Fjords National Park is located on the edge of Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula. The park’s rugged landscape includes fjords, mountains, and glaciers. The Harding Icefield is here, its host of nearly 40 glaciers calving bergs into Resurrection Bay.
Wildlife thrives here, both on shore in the meadows and forests and offshore in the icy waters. Black bears, sea otters, puffins, eagles, migrating whales, and many more are routinely spotted within the park’s boundaries.
No wonder the Kenai Fjords Cruise is known as “Alaska’s # 1 Wildlife and Glacier Cruise!”
Going on a guided Alaska sea kayak tour is the experience of a lifetime. A saltwater paddle puts you at eye level with the marine world – a whole new perspective on Alaskan wildlife!
When you climb into a sea kayak, you’re getting that much closer to the water and to the unspoiled world you traveled so far to see. Even if you’ve never touched a paddle before, you’ll find the experience smooth and soothing. Kayaks slice quietly through the waves, leaving you able to approach more closely to marine life without disturbing them.
The sea kayak tour offered by Alaska Adventure Unlimited is an optional exploration of Resurrection Bay. Depending on the time of year you go, you may have the opportunity to see lots of wildlife, including otters, eagles, salmon, sea lions, maybe even bears!
You’ll enjoy an amazing mix of native history and outdoor adventure when you tour Alaska’s Native Athabaskan village of Eklutna.
Eklutna is in Alaska’s Matanuska Valley, 25 miles outside of Anchorage. Eklutna is presently home to around 70 residents.
The village dates back at least 800 years, making it the area’s oldest continuously inhabited settlement. The Athabaskan people have lived in the area for thousands of years and they are still here, relying upon the land for their subsistence and traditions.
You wouldn’t think a person would need many reasons to visit Alaska but then again, why would you go? Isn’t it just snow, beards, and moose? Au contraire, mon frere!
When most folks who’ve never been here think of Alaska, they tend to picture a snow-covered landscape populated by bears, moose, and men on dogsleds. While you can certainly find those things here, Alaska is so much more!

Alaska’s gold rush may be over but you can enjoy an Alaska gold panning adventure of your own when you book a trip with Alaska Adventure Unlimited!
The Alaskan gold rush drew thousands of adventurers to Alaska in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Most think of Nome, Fairbanks, and Iditarod country as Alaska’s gold rush frontier. Gold was actually discovered closer to Anchorage before that! Gold fever took hold and prospectors scoured the Susitna and Matanuska river basins. They found what they were after in the Talkeetna Mountains.
A multi-day vacation package from Alaska Adventure Unlimited will help you to experience some of what those days must have been like!
Iconic, majestic, photogenic: these are the words that come to mind when one thinks of Alaska’s Dall sheep. Who wouldn’t want the opportunity to see them in their natural habitat on a Dall sheep photo safari?
Dall sheep are native to the mountain ranges of Alaska. The massive curled horns of the males make them almost instantly recognizable, and startlingly impressive. Even the females, with their shorter, slender, only slightly curved horns are beautiful to see as they clamber through the steep, rocky terrain.
Alaska Adventure Unlimited takes you to many places in Alaska where you are likely to catch sight of Dall sheep, not to mention other Alaskan wildlife. Few, however, compare to the opportunities found near Matanuska Glacier. Here, at Sheep Mountain, there is a large population of Dall Sheep which are protected from hunting.
A number of our tours stop here for a bite to eat and, weather permitting, it’s the perfect spot for a Dall sheep photo safari!
