You’ve got just one week for your Alaska adventure tour.  Do you really want to spend most of it sitting in a van?

Didn’t think so. Join us in our 17th Year of great sea kayaking, backpacking, ice climbing and rafting adventures.

The best Alaska adventure tour company you never heard of. We do very little advertising, so you’ve never read about us in a glossy magazine. Yet our family of professional Guides and adventurous Guests has grown every year. Since we specialize in small groups and adventurous trips, we don’t need a lot of guests to be successful. We’re not for everyone anyway!

Why choose us for your Alaska tour?

Small Groups

No more than 6 guests on one of our scheduled tours.  Our maximum is the minimum for many companies.

Challenging Itineraries

If you like to sit on a bus, maybe take a little walk or do some shopping look elsewhere.  

Excellent Safety Record

We’re going to push you, but managing the risks of these challenging activities is our priority.

Less time in the van

We believe that to really appreciate Alaska you need to get out there, not just look through the windshield.

Almost everything is included

All the meals and snacks, technical gear, entry fees and all scheduled activities.

We're not for everyone

We don’t pretend to be.  But we might be for you.  

A small selection of adventure tours that we've developed & refined since 1999.
