Our Guides

Making Every Tour Exceptional

Discover the Real Alaska

Get to know the people who call Alaska home and go far beyond the typical tourist experience. Our tours are designed to capture the best of what locals know and love about living here. All local Alaskans, our guides have hunted and fished extensively in Alaska’s wilderness, traveled over mountain passes on snowmachines, and served as bush guides in remote areas. To every tour they bring a palpable passion for Alaska’s rich history and an intimate knowledge of its plants and animals. Their stories will enrich your adventure and deepen your connection to the land.

Featured Guide

Meet Lyle

Born and raised in the Matanuska Valley, Lyle is a retired teacher and avid hiker and fisherman. When he’s not sharing his love of the Last Frontier, you can find him in the mountains or out on a lake or river.

Featured Guide

Meet Dorothy

In addition to being a wonderfully knowledgeable guide, Dorothy is an active volleyball official, traveling and officiating games across the state. She’s also heavily involved in agriculture, managing a small farm and working at the Alaska State Fair—her largest cabbage to date has been 34 pounds! Dorothy produces much of the food her family eats through gardening, hunting, and fishing, making the most of Alaska’s abundant resources.

Featured Guide

Meet Dwight

A long-time educator, Dwight has taught in some of the most remote areas of Alaska. He’s also a multi-talented wood carving artist, and you may get the chance to see some of his work during your tour.

Featured Guide

Meet Rod

As a lifetime Alaskan, Rod loves to get out on the water, in the woods, or on the road year round. He’s a “half-retired” high school teacher and coach. Ask him about his recent fishing records for rainbow trout and ice fishing for Arctic char.

“The tour guide Terry was spectacular. We would play ‘2 degrees of Terry’ because on all our adventures he was either a personal friend or a friend of a friend of seemingly everyone in Alaska. He was the perfect steward to make sure we enjoyed all 8 days of our trip.”

—Gary C.

“Sid was an excellent guide. He was especially fabulous with 2 boys in the group, ages 10 and 12, taking time to show them things like how to pan for gold and he made unplanned stops for things like picking blueberries. He had great knowledge of Alaska.”

—Julie C.

“Our tour guide, John, was the BEST! He shared a ton of knowledge with us and became a friend during our journey. His pleasant demeanor and caring for our needs was really special.”

—Harry M.

“Both my husband and I feel it was the best vacation we’ve had. Our tour guide, Jamie, was FANTASTIC. He made our group feel like family and he added a special touch to our adventure.”

—Janet M.

“We take our grandkids on special trips when they turn ten and this tour did not disappoint! Our guide, Dorothy, was wonderful with the kids. She has over 40 years of Alaskan living and raised three boys. Her knowledge and friendly attitude was special.”

—Debra M.

“Rod, our tour guide, treated us like royalty! He is a life-long Alaskan, and so, so knowledgeable about the area, and enjoyable to listen to. He cared about each of us individually.”

—Selene G.

“We had a marvelous time seeing many wonderful sights in Alaska! Suzanne was an excellent tour guide who had wonderful stories and information. We had an excellent group who got along well, in fact, it was like touring with a group of close friends! We greatly enjoyed the float boat and seeing the glaciers, wildlife and mountains!”
