“Heidi [Alaska Outdoors’ Guide] was a perfect 10. If I need to live in the wild, she is the only thing I need with me.”

“Over a number of years we have participated various camping tours in Norway, Russia/ Eastern Europe, Kenya, Botswana, Namibia, Western Australisa, and South Africa. The two week Alaska camping tour with Alaska Outdoors was by far the best- not just because of the superb scenery and activities, but also because of the brilliant planning and organization of the itinerary, small group size, quality of equipment and camp sites, excellent food, and above all your own personal care and attention to every detail and personal interest in each tour participant. Thank you!”
