“10/10 I think your guide was very knowledgeable, experienced, friendly, and efficient plus a careful & safe driver – I would recommend your company highly to anyone. I enjoyed the whole trip – only wish it was longer!! (Alaska is so huge!)”

Jane Frances

“This was a very enjoyable trip with a nice bunch of people and an enthusiastic guide. A good way to get a feel for Alaska!”

Louise Peregrina

“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!”
