Hi. I live in sunny California and organize trips, climbs and expeditions around the world.

I have organized over 200 tours and have a lot of fun with my work! I really enjoy showing new places, doing trips that they then remember for the rest of their lives. It is my great passion!

Visiting Alaska August 2020. Everything was top notch, if there is an opportunity to visit Alaska again, I will do so with these guys.

I do not recommend this trip, friends, it is not an Alaskan trip, it is a hike on the hills of Anchorage, from the real Alaska only Matanuska glacier, fjord tour and flight over Denali without landing, though it is interesting to get into the park. To all their wishes like Denali park or Old Believers settlement they will tell you: "far away and not interesting" Organizers are interested only in free climbing in the mountains, where not all members of the group wished to climb due to health and desire, or free museum shop. There is no museum there, just a hunting shop. The farm of the northern deer is not worth losses for half day, and the drive in the summer on the dogs can be limited to a conversation about their life, to look as harnessed and all, well on hour all action. Dirt and dust in the jeep, which is pulled by dogs in general so is a pleasure. About food a separate story: for your big money you will be fed in the evening the same fried in breaded salmon with a number of additives, in the morning you can cook something and finish the evening, in the afternoon there will be a sandwich and half-eaten snacks of the evening dinner. Alaskan cuisine will remain an inaccessible mystery. I am very disappointed in the organization of this tour for this cost. Read more

We went on a tour of Alaska with the guys. To say that we loved it is an understatement! I loved it. The organization is 5 stars, the route is 5 stars, the accommodation is without stars because of the tents I don't know how they behave while climbing, but they drive perfectly Read more

Hello! My name is Alex. I am very glad that you are interested in our trip. What questions do you have?

Itinerary

Start: June 17th, Anchorage

Finish: June 22nd, Anchorage

Claim brochure in PDF
Day 1.

Meet in Anchorage at 2pm* AKDT and go straight out for a walk up the mountain with beautiful views: all of Anchorage on one side and the valley surrounded by mighty mountains on the other!
In the evening we check into the house/hotel where a welcome dinner awaits us.

Night in the house.

Day 2.

This day we will have a hike-expedition on the glacier in crampons (spikes for boots). We will walk on the blocks of blue ice, look into the deep crevasses, learn the technique of walking in crampons and try it out ourselves. The glacier is a great opportunity for beautiful photos! Then we will climb to the nearby summit and see the glacier from above.

Day 3.

Fr om the morning we will travel to the town of Talkeetna, wh ere one of the most exciting moments of the tour awaits us - a flight over Denali National Park. From the plane you will see the beauty of the Alaska Range and the tallest mountain in North America, McKinley (6,190m). Remarkably, the Mayor of Talkeetna is a cat! It is from this town that mountaineering expeditions to the top of Mount McKinley start.

There is also a very beautiful hike with views of the mountains and blue lakes that day.

* Flying over Denali is very dependent on weather conditions. If the weather is inclement, we will be changing the plan for this day

Day 4.

Go into the heart of Nike Glacier Lagoon in an SUV and a boat. We'll swim among the ice!

And then explore the other side of the Nike River, but on horseback.

Day 5.

On a unique sightseeing train, we'll travel to Seward to experience Alaska's marine life. A cruise through Kenai National Park will feature whales, seals, birds, scenic fjords and majestic glaciers. The cruise lasts 4-5 hours. If we are lucky, we will see with our own eyes how the glacier crumbles.

Day 6.

Our adventure is coming to an end. In the morning we will leave for Anchorage, where those who wish can wander around the shops and buy souvenirs before flying home. We can also take a field trip to Katmai National Park that day to see for yourself how grizzly bears fish.

The day will also include an excursion to Katmai National Park to see for yourself how grizzly bears fish.

Chai guides are welcome.

❗️ We will do our best to adhere to the schedule above, but the itinerary and order of sightseeing and haikas may be changed by the guide at any time for reasons beyond our control.
