Alaska- one of the last remaining large scale wilderness areas on Earth. Wild animals roam free, rivers flow naturally, and mountains tower over an immense landscape. Alaska offers an experience unlike anywhere in the world and travelers to this special place are rewarded with memorable encounters with wildness and beauty.

The question is: What is the best way to experience Alaska? What type of trip to take?

We have refined a concept in Alaska adventure travel that takes advantage of the unique qualities that Alaska has to offer. And in the process, have created a travel experience that offers several benefits.

Enriching

Our small group camping itineraries explore the biotic regions of Alaska from South Central Alaska to the vast Alaskan interior. Led by a knowledgeable guide, who will share with you the stories behind the sites, our approach gets you out there experiencing some of the most wild and beautiful places on Earth.

  • Avoid the crowds of conventional Alaska adventure trips
  • Actively experience Alaska throughout your vacation
  • Learn about what makes this landscape so unique and interesting
  • Long summer days allow for exploration outdoors- why come all the way to Alaska to spend much of your time indoors?

Economical

Traditional, lodge or cabin based vacations can be expensive due to the high costs of running these facilities in Alaska. Also, most traditional trips include all activities in your itinerary leaving you few options to explore at your leisure. Our approach to Alaska adventure travel is different.

  • Our camping vacations are much less costly than hotel or lodge-based trips
  • Choose and pay for only the activities you are interested in, a very economical way to travel

Adventurous

Your trip may include sea kayaking to the face of a glacier, hiking out onto glacial ice on a glacier trek, and/or photographing a breaching whale on a whale watching cruise! And much more!

You can be as adventurous as you like. There are lots of outdoor adventure trips available at each of our destinations.

Flexible

Each of the parks that we visit features a variety of world class Alaska adventure trips offered by local tour operators.

We will offer our professional recommendations about what to see and do (based upon your interests and our experience) and will make all the logistical arrangements leaving you free time to relax and enjoy your trip. Much of the time we can get you a discount!

Or relax by a stream and read a book, visit local museums, or wander through gift shops, the choice is yours.

Let us know what you would like to do and we will make it happen!

Our trips offer an enriching, economical, adventurous, and flexible approach to adventure travel in Alaska. We have refined our itineraries based on years of experience, and our past clients’ feedback, to create travel experiences that are seamless and lots of fun.

“Wonderful trip! In traveling another two weeks after the Alaska Outdoors trip, I met other travelers and learned about other companies. Given all that, I would pick your company again. The trips are just the right size for my taste and the mix of camping and hiking was great!”

Linda Andrews

“We would just like to reiterate what a fantastic experience this has been for us. Coming from so far away, we were a little unsure of what to expect. Alaska Outdoors has been successful in providing us with a superbly comfortable camping experience, some landscapes and wildlife that we will not forget in a hurry, and last but not least, friends that we shared some great times and will keep in touch with. From both of us a big thank you.”

Amrita Deb and Mark Manchanda
