Alaska Outdoors is an outdoor adventure tour company operating exclusively in Alaska since 2001. We are a family owned and operated business headed by an owner operator who has been leading outdoor expeditions since 1988.
Since the beginning, we have focused on providing unique, affordable adventure tours to travelers from throughout the world. We have led hundreds of outdoor expeditions throughout the state for thousands Alaska travelers. Since 2001, our guests have enjoyed well over ten thousand nights camping in the land of the midnight sun. We enjoy a perfect safety record.
Our success is due, in part, to our commitment to our guests as individuals. We understand that your decision to travel with us comes with great responsibility on our part. We understand that you are taking a trip of a lifetime and that it is our responsibility to help make your experience as outstanding as possible within our sphere of influence. That is why we have made a conscious decision to stay small, despite the growth in our industry and the demand for us to expand. Almost all of our tours fill to capacity each summer and we commonly cannot accommodate everyone who would like to join us.
Alaska Outdoors is headed by the owner of the company supported by a general manager who has been with Alaska Outdoors since the beginning. Together, we go to great lengths to ensure that your questions are answered, that you are well prepared for your trip, and that logistics are handled professionally and comprehensively.
In our view, it’s not enough to be an excellent outdoor adventure tour company that serves the needs of our guests. We also believe that we have the responsibility to serve our environment by limiting the impact from our tours. We follow minimum impact camping procedures; (the owner is a certified Master Trainer of Leave No Trace); make concerted efforts to recycle (despite the challenges in remote Alaska); purchase from local, organic farms; and do the best we can to ensure that our tours minimize our impact on the places and people that are affected by our tour program.
Alaska Outdoors is a small, “boutique,” outdoor adventure tour company led by folks that truly care about your Alaska experience. We’re not perfect, but we work very hard to make sure that your vacation is all that you hope for and more. During our short, and very busy tour season, you will find us spending our days (and the days are very long in Alaska) fully committed to your Alaska vacation experience.
We invite you to do your research when planning your Alaska vacation. Our trips are not for everyone. But, we think that you will find that we are authentic and committed to our mission.
Please, if you have any questions about our program feel free to give us a call or send us an email. We’ll do our best to make sure that you pick the very best trip, and if our trips are not right for you we will do our best to recommend alternatives.

“Our guide was very knowledgeable and experienced which resulted in a richer experience for me.”
“The equipment was solid. We were never cold. Meals were wonderful, very much exceeded expectations in this area. My only suggestion would be MORE BROWNIES! Your company always seemed most prepared, professional and willing to make the experience great versus the other ones we looked at. ”
“Thank you so much for a life-changing trip that we will remember for the rest of our lives. We had an incredible time. Your guide went the extra mile and then some. He was an incredible host and extremely knowledgeable about Alaska and our surroundings. If he didn’t know something, he would always find out for us and let us know, and was always flexible and extremely patient with us "east coast city folk." We always felt safe and well taken care of with him. He was an 11.”
