“This was one of the best if not the best holiday I’ve ever had. Alaska was breathtakingly beautiful. The tour group was fabulous and really gelled together and our guide was ‘totally awesome’. I commend Alaska Outdoors for their insight and organization and hospitality. I would recommend your tour company in a heartbeat.”

Katherine Ryan

“I would recommend this trip to ANYONE who wants to visit Alaska as it truly offers the largest variety of activities with incredibly experienced guides. As someone who has never camped before in her life (25 years old), I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable I felt during the whole experience. The set up was quick and easy every time and I never needed something more. Everything provided was fantastic. The meals were one of my favorite parts! The meals were delicious, filling and healthy. I appreciate that you took the time as a company to learn what our preferences were.”

Michelle Drummy

“This was a fantastic experience, we saw so much, the wildlife, the scenery and met interesting people and really got to know Alaska! It really was the best way to see Alaska! We loved getting out onto the glacier with crampons. My daughter loved the ice climbing. Sea kayaking was great. Thank you for a memorable, unique trip! ”
