Everything was great organized, our CEO Megan was so kind and well prepared.
Jump on the bus with Infinite Adventures for a magnificent Alaskan expedition! Dave and Tory are excellent guides and will keep you informed about the areas you visit and give expert advice. I found this to be a truly joyful experience!
I highly recommend Infinite Adventures in general and this trip particularly. If you want to see the best of Alaska you have to join the team and their bus, In 20 days I have seen more from Alaska than I would ever have expected. Dave and Tory are amazing and I would travel with them any time. 5 stars all the way!!!

Infinite Adventures

"It was my first group trip and also my first camping trip. I have to say it was one of the best trips I've been on. It was an adventure! We were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights at Remote Camp. Tory and Dave took care of everything and made sure everyone had a great time. No matter what problem you had, they always helped each other! Dave cooked delicious food, we had marshmallows by the fire in the evening and it felt like family. It's a great tour and I can only recommend it to anyone! It certainly wasn't my last tour with Infinite Adventure! Many thanks to Tory, Dave and Natalie (who you could ask any question you wanted to know beforehand) for this unforgettable time! :)

You can also leave all the details to a professional guide with our escorted tour packages . More on that below.

Self-Guided vs. Fully-Guided

The vast majority of our guests travel on "self-guided" itineraries. Guests travel independently, not necessarily with the same group of fellow travelers, and without a dedicated tour guide or leader that stays with them for their entire trip. Nearly all activities and most transportation services feature guides for that particular excursion. Self-guided trips give you the ultimate flexibility to choose where to go, how long to stay, how to get around, and what things to do in each destination.

At the same time, many other travelers prefer to leave the day-to-day details of their trips to a professional. Some folks also like the comradery that comes with having the same group of fellow travelers for their entire trip. If this sounds like how you like to travel, take a look at our escorted vacation packages .

Families & Groups

Alaska is the perfect destination for your next multi-generational family vacation or friend trip. Every year small groups look to us to arrange custom trips to Alaska tailored to their specific interests, schedule, and budget. We have family-friendly activities , 12 or 15 passenger van rentals , expert advice , and everything you need for your Alaska group of 6 or 60. See our family vacations and small groups web pages for additional ideas, including suggested itineraries.

Alaska Tour & Travel can also help you book a Glacier Route cruise from Vancouver to Seward or Whittier . Better yet, we have dozens of pre-cruise and post-cruise land tours specifically designed to connect with each sailing. We can also help you save $299 just by booking your Alaska cruise with us.

Culture and customs.

The culture of Alaska is indelibly shaped by the environment. The harsh winter, connection to the Arctic Sea and permafrost means life in Alaska is not for the fainthearted. The remote and wild environment fosters both a spirit of independence and a strong community. When there are so few people in such a vast state, it makes sense to share resources and keep your friends close.

Nature-based hobbies like hiking, fishing and snow sports are all popular. The main city of Anchorage has a small but passionate arts scene including the well-curated Anchorage Museum and a number of Native arts and crafts galleries.

Around 18 per cent of Alaska’s population is indigenous, of either Alaskan Native or American Indian descent. Alaska’s Native people consist of dozens of nations and tribes including Aleut, Inupiat and Yupik people. While many indigenous Alaskans live in small rural communities, a growing number now live in urban areas like Anchorage. Climate change has proved particularly devastating for Alaska’s indigenous people and their traditional way of life. As rising temperatures change the landscape and affect animal migratory patterns, hunting and fishing have become more difficult.

History and government

It’s believed that humans first arrived in the area between 12,000 and 15,000 years ago after travelling from what is now known as Russian Siberia. This theory assumes that  Russia  and  North America  were once connected by a land bridge until rising sea levels caused the land between them to submerge and become the Bering Strait.

Pre-colonial

A detailed history of Alaska has been relatively difficult to uncover due to both the destructive nature of colonialism and the challenges the environment poses to researchers. It’s generally understood that most of the land’s inhabitants were somewhat nomadic until about 5000 years ago when evidence suggests some groups began to build permanent settlements.  

Colonisation

Russian colonisation of Alaska began in the early 18th century in pursuit of natural resources and to spread the gospel of Orthodox Christianity. Fur was of particular interest to Russia, and Alaskan Native people were often enslaved and forced to collect otter pelts for Russian companies. Brutal treatment, murder and disease killed an estimated 50 per cent of the pre-Russian population, despite the fact that very few Russians actually settled in the area permanently. 

Russia ‘sold’ Alaska to the  United States  in 1867. Indigenous Alaskans objected to the sale on the grounds that they had never given up the land to Russia in the first place, a fact that would become important in 20th-century legal stoushes. As part of the greater missionary goals of the United States, the systematic eradication of indigenous languages, culture and arts was practised in Alaska – now a US territory – from the 1860s until the early 20th century.

The late 19th century saw the discovery of gold in  Canada’s  nearby Yukon Territory, known as the Klondike Gold Rush, which brought a wave of prospectors to Alaska because of its transport links to the Yukon. Gold was later discovered in Alaska itself and new cities, such as Fairbanks, were built to support the rush.

Alaska officially became a US state in 1959. In the late 1960s, the discovery of valuable oil reserves became entangled with the Native title movement, as a proposed oil pipeline would run through land that belonged to First Nations Alaskans. Richard Nixon signed the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act as a result of this tension, which granted over 44 million acres of Alaskan land to indigenous people, plus almost one billion dollars to be divided among numerous communities and groups. To this day, Alaska continues to be at the centre of a battle between the conservation and exploitation of natural resources.

Eating and drinking

In keeping with a way of life that still revolves around hunting, fishing and nature, Alaskan cuisine is big on game, seafood and small amounts of locally grown produce. While traditional Alaskan fare tends to be simple, you’ll find a diverse selection of restaurants in larger towns. Fusion has been particularly popular of late, with plenty of chefs experimenting by marrying fresh Alaskan seafood with  Asian  spice and flavours. 

The food may not be the reason you’re holidaying in Alaska, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing worth sniffing out. Here’s our list of must-try dishes in Alaska:

Salmon Alaska’s wild salmon are iconic. An important part of indigenous diets pre-colonisation, salmon today is both a vital part of the state’s economy and a source of pride and identity for locals. Of the five varieties – king, sockeye, coho, pink and keta – each person has their favourite and a preferred way of cooking it.

Reindeer hotdog These wieners aren’t just a novelty for tourists, they are plenty popular with locals too. Grab these strongly flavoured sausages – actually a mix of lean caribou meat and pork or beef to bind it together – from food carts in bigger towns like Anchorage, or from supermarkets state-wide for a very Alaskan camp barbecue.

Berries Cold weather and a pristine environment make Alaska a haven for berry production. Late summer is best for blueberries and strawberries, while crowberries taste sweeter after they’ve been ‘burned’ with a little winter frost. While wild berry picking is a popular pastime in Alaska, remember that there are plenty of poisonous and lethal berries that grow in the state too, so be cautious.

Red king crab The king crab more than lives up to its name. It has a body the size of a dinner plate and the males weigh an average of three kilograms (6.6 pounds). You’ll see their spiky legs – which some say is the tastiest part – adorning menus throughout the state, often served with just a little lemon so the soft white meat can speak for itself.

Plant-based options

Vegetarians and vegans have no shortage of options in Anchorage, Alaska’s progressive hub. Vegetarians won’t have to look too hard for options in smaller towns like Homer and Seward either, though vegans may have to make do with fries and a salad. If you’re going truly wild and hitting the backcountry, it’s a good idea to stock up on food at the supermarket before you go. Many small lodges will have a small restaurant attached, but the offerings will likely be whatever the owners managed to bag on their most recent hunting or fishing trip.

Travelling with a local makes this all a lot easier. If you do travel with Intrepid, let your leader know your dietary requirements at the start of the trip and they can make sure you don’t go hungry.

Geography and environment

Alaska is a massive state and its diverse and dramatic landscapes are a big draw for most tourists. It’s bordered by Canada to the south and a third of the state falls within the  Arctic  Circle.

There are rugged mountains throughout the state like the Brooks Range in the north, the highly volcanic Aleutian Range in the southwest, and the Alaska Range in the southcentral, which includes North America’s tallest peak in Denali (6190 metres/ 20,310 feet).

With over 10,000 kilometres of coastline and a number of islands and inlets, plus a spiderweb of rivers that flow through the state, Alaska is as much a state of water as it is of mountains.

Alaska is an outdoorsy state that’s big on experiences, so the best things to buy are activities. A glacier hike in Wrangell-St Elias or a marine safari on the  Kenai Peninsula  may not be cheap, but they’re sure worth saving for. If you do have some cash leftover, the best Alaskan gifts are still of the practical variety. Remember that it’s a good idea to check with your local customs officials to ensure that you can bring certain items back into your home country. Australia and New Zealand have particularly strict quarantine laws.

Used by indigenous Alaskan women for thousands of years, this curved knife was perfect for tackling the many tasks associated with preparing freshly caught game and fish for dinner. Just remember to put it in your checked luggage.

Jams and preserves

Alaska’s famed berry harvest has led to a strong jam-making tradition. A jar of locally made preserve will travel well and makes a sweet gift in more ways than one.  

Qiviut items

Made from the underwool of musk oxen, qiviut is warmer and softer than wool and can be used to make everything from hats to sweaters. While some qiviut is produced on dedicated farms, it is possible to find collectives and cooperatives of indigenous craftspeople who still do things the old-fashioned way by picking the naturally shed wool from bushes in the spring and knitting it by hand.

Using weaving techniques perfected over thousands of years, craftspeople from the many different indigenous groups create baskets by hand. The Alutiiq people, for example, produce finely woven baskets (and all kinds of useful things) from the seagrass that grows in their ancestral homeland along the southcentral coast.

Festivals and events

The Alaskans may live, and thrive, in some pretty harsh conditions but that doesn't mean they don't know how to let their hair down.

Fur Rendezvous Festival

Affectionately called the ‘Rondy’, the Fur Rendezvous is a winter festival and celebration of all things Alaska. It takes place in Anchorage annually and the irreverent celebrations – which include dog sledding and a fur auction – began in 1935, when one local hero decided that surviving the winter would take one giant party. This 12-day festival is still one of the biggest events in Alaska, drawing folks from all over the state as well as the lower 48.

Alaskan wildlife

Part of the allure of an Alaskan adventure is the chance to see the diverse wildlife that roams the land and fills the waterways. With huge chunks of truly untamed wilderness, Alaska often has more in common with a safari than a walk through a nature reserve. You may just be lucky enough to see some of these:

A modern emblem of freedom in the US, the bald eagle has also traditionally been revered among numerous Native American groups. What’s so special about the bird? It’s a combination of size, speed and style. With females sporting a wingspan that can reach 240 centimetres (eight feet), a dive speed of up to 160 kilometres (99 miles) per hour and an iconic look, the baldie is bad to the bone.

See them:  Look up for a chance to see them in Denali National Park, Resurrection Bay and Anchorage, year-round.

Easily distinguished by their orange beaks, puffins in Alaska come in two varieties – tufted and horned. The tufted kind is all black with yellow feathers on either side of their head, while the horned ones have white bellies.

See them: Around Valdez, Homer and the waterways of Kenai Fjord National Park in summer. 

Grizzly   bears

These creatures are located throughout Alaska though they do tend to spread out, so spotting them is a rare treat. That being said, their impressive size makes them easy to see, even from a distance. Females can weigh up to 360 kilograms (800 pounds), but males really take the salmon-cake with top weights of 770 kilograms (1700 pounds).

See them: It’s possible to see grizzlies from March to September, depending on the area, but the peak time for viewing is generally June to July. The best spots are Kenai Fjords National Park, Denali National Park and Wrangell-St Elias National Park.

Black bears

It’s the face shape and nail length, rather than coat colour, that will help you tell black bears from brown bears (like grizzlies). While they can be any colour from black to brown, their longer, straighter face (some have called it Romanesque) and short claws make it relatively easy to tell the difference.

See them: Black bears, like grizzlies, hibernate during winter. The best times for spotting them are the warmer months from March to September when they hunt for fish in Kenai Fjords National Park and live in the forests of Denali National Park and Wrangell-St Elias National Park.

It’s the males that have the antlers, which they grow a fresh set of every year, giving new meaning to the phrase ‘grow a pair’. Male moose begin shedding the velvet coating on their antlers around September in preparation for dropping them in the winter months, a very gnarly process that is a real treat, albeit a gross one, to see in real life.    

See them :  Pretty much everywhere throughout the year, though the best spots are in Denali NP, Wrangell-St Elias NP and Anchorage.

You may know caribou by their more whimsical name – reindeer. Santa’s hoofed helpers have natural snowshoes and gorgeous, multi-pronged antlers adorn both males and females.

See them: There’s a fairly large herd that lives inside Denali National Park, and your best chance for catching these active animals is during the summer months.

Dall   sheep

These white sheep sport a wise expression and curved horns, though the males undeniably have a more impressive set. They have the distinct honour of being the northernmost wild sheep in the world and they will eat almost anything to survive, from grass and moss to soil.

See them: As they tend to live in rocky, mountainous areas, your best bet is near rugged environments. Be particularly alert on some of the hiking trails in Denali NP, like the Savage River Loop and the trails around Igloo Mountain.

Sea   otters

With a face that looks adorably stunned at all times, these beautiful weasels are playful and dextrous. Their amazing coats meant they were hunted to the brink of extinction by the 20th century and while numbers are improving, they remain a threatened species in Alaska.

See them: In the waterways around Valdez, Homer and Seward. 

Humpback whales

Humpbacks are big enough to be spotted from land, but there’s nothing quite like seeing one from the water by boat or kayak. Even the runts grow to around 12-metres (40-feet) long and a 10,000-strong pod heads to Alaska every summer.

See them: Resurrection Bay is a reliably great spot for whale watching in the summer months. You can also spot them in Prince William Sound and off the coast of Homer.

The ‘killer whale’ is technically part of the dolphin family. With their glossy black back and striking white bellies, there is little chance of missing these mammals if they are close by, and luckily for you, they tend to travel to Alaska’s waters in large pods.

Specific proof of testing or vaccination may still be required by your destination or airline. Please ensure you check travel and entry requirements carefully.

When is the best time to visit Alaska?

Stuck in a chilly latitude between 50 and 70 degrees north of the equator, Alaska is dark for a lot of the year. Really dark. The exception is from May to late June when the sun shines all day and most of the night. Peak season for Alaska tours is from mid-June to mid-August, when the daytime temperatures are a relatively warm 15–25°C (60–80°F) and there’s plenty of daylight for exploring.

Shoulder seasons (April, May and September) are a good time to travel if you prefer to share the wild with fewer people, and May comes with very little rain. It’s generally best to holiday in Alaska with an open mind about the weather: Alaskans have learned that if they don’t like it, they need only wait five minutes.

How do I get to Alaska?

Perhaps fitting with its end-of-the-earth aesthetic, Alaska does have a reputation for being difficult when it comes to finding flights. Anchorage is the state’s main gateway, with flights coming in from other   US   cities like Chicago, Denver, LA, Vegas and Portland year-round. You can also find direct flights in the summer from   Frankfurt ,   Reykjavik   (how’s that for an epic itinerary) or   Vancouver . You can, of course, visit Alaska from anywhere, it’s just a question of stopovers and stamina.

If world-class mountain vistas are your thing you may prefer to drive. The Alaska Highway used to be a bumpy dirt road, but these days it’s a paved vein that pumps adventurers in through the border of   British Columbia . When you touch down and start your Alaska tour, we’ll handle all the internal transfers (in a private vehicle with heating).

Do I need a visa to travel to United States?

It depends on where you’re from. Many countries now operate under the United States Visa Waiver Program, meaning a visa isn’t required for stays of up to 90 days for travel purposes. There are 40 participating countries, including the United Kingdom , Australia , New Zealand, Germany and Spain.

If you're eligible for the Visa Waiver Program, you must obtain a letter of authorisation before you travel to the States. This can be obtained by submitting an application through the Electronic System for Travel Authorisation ( ESTA ).

If you’re a national from a non-participating country of the Visa Waiver Program, you must apply for a non-immigrant visa. Please see the Department of State website for more information.

If you have travelled to Iran, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen or the Democratic People's Republic of Korea on or after 1 March 2011, you are ineligible and must apply for a non-immigrant visa instead.

People from a participating country who are also citizens of Cuba, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, Iran, Iraq, Syria or Sudan must also apply for a non-immigrant visa.

Is tipping customary in the US?

Tipping is very much a part of the culture in the United States. Tips are expected at restaurants, cafes and diners, as well as by taxi drivers, valet attendants, porters and hotel maids.

People working in the service industry generally receive low wages and therefore rely upon tips as a major source of income.

In general, leave 15 to 20% of the bill at places serving food and a few dollars to bartenders and hotel staff who provide a personal service like carrying bags or cleaning your room.

What is the internet access like in Alaska?

Internet access in urban areas of Alaska is usually good but download speeds will be slower than you are used to.

Internet access may not be available in rural areas and national parks.

We suggest talking the chance to unplug and immerse yourself in the wilderness, but remember to give your friends and family realistic expectations of how often you will be able to communicate with them.   

Can I use my mobile phone in Alaska?

Mobile phone coverage in Alaska is improving but still patchy. Expect to be able to use your mobile phone in towns like Anchorage, Valdez and even in some parts of Denali National Park. Much of the state – including large parts of Wrangell-St Elias and the Kenai Peninsula – still has little or no coverage.

Global roaming can also be activated when travelling through Alaska, but be sure to check with your service provider to find out about any fees you may incur when using this option, as it can sometimes be expensive.

What are the toilets like in Alaska?

Western-style, flushable toilets are the norm in Alaska, though in remote areas and national parks there may be drop toilets outside the main building.

Can I drink the water in Alaska?

Drinking water from taps in Alaska is considered safe unless otherwise marked. For environmental reasons, try to use a refillable water bottle rather than buying bottled water.

What is the weather like in Alaska?

Weather in Alaska is highly variable depending on the region, so check out the guide below for the area/s you’re planning to travel in. Keep in mind that no matter your location or the time of year, the diverse environment and geography of Alaska means the weather can change very quickly.

Southcentral (Anchorage, Seward, Homer, Valdez)

A subarctic climate makes Alaska’s southcentral region cool to cold throughout the year. Even in high June, when the sun is out almost 19 hours a day, expect temperatures to top out at around 18°C (65°F) and drop to around 10°C (50°F) in the evening. August and September are the rainiest months of the year with an average of 14 days rainfall in both. In the winter months of December, January and February, expect temperatures to drop below freezing.

Interior (Fairbanks, Denali National Park)

The mountainous interior of Alaska is known for wild variations in temperature, though summers tend to feature average highs of about 21°C (70°F) and average lows of –17°C (1°F) in winter. May, June and July all experience over 18 hours a day of sunlight in Alaska’s interior. Summer (June, July and August) is the rainy season, experiencing between two and three inches a month on average.    

What should I wear in Alaska?

Don’t let the word ‘summer’ fool you into filling your suitcase with crop tops and short shorts. While Alaskan weather can be clear and beautiful in the warmer months, the nights still tend to be chilly and cool changes are known to come hard and fast.

The best way to dress for unpredictable weather is in layers. If you’re heading out for a day hike in Denali National Park, for example, think comfortable pants (preferably waterproof), a t-shirt and a lightweight waterproof jacket that can be tied around your shoulders and pulled on if it starts to rain, plus a bag packed with gloves and a beanie. 

Comfortable shoes are essential in Alaska. Most of the activities on our tours involve some level of physical activity, so we recommend worn-in hiking or walking shoes.

Check the ‘Packing’ section of the Essential Trip Information for the tour you’re interested in for a comprehensive packing list.

Do I need to purchase travel insurance before travelling?

Absolutely. All passengers travelling with Intrepid are required to purchase travel insurance before the start of their trip. Your travel insurance details will be recorded by your leader on the first day of the trip. Due to the varying nature, availability and cost of health care around the world, travel insurance is very much an essential and necessary part of every journey.

Is Alaska a safe destination for LGBTQIA+ travellers?

Overall, Alaska is generally a safe destination for LBGTQIA+ travellers.

Same-sex relationships are legal, as is same-sex marriage. However, Alaska has no laws protecting LGBTQIA+ individuals from discrimination based on their gender identity or sexual orientation. While discrimination of employment and housing won’t affect LGBTQIA+ travellers, lack of legal protection can be indicative of higher levels of social bigotry.  

While Alaskans are known for being politically conservative, the majority of people follow a ‘live and let live’ philosophy with a heavy emphasis on freedom. Public attitudes towards LGBTQIA+ people are mixed.

If you identify as LGBTQIA+ and have any concerns about travelling in Alaska, we recommend contacting the   Alaska Pride Foundation , which is run by locals and provides support and information to LGBTQIA+ folks throughout the state.

In Anchorage you’ll find a handful of gay bars, including The Raven, which calls itself the northernmost gay bar in the USA. Outside of Alaska’s progressive capital, the LGBTQIA+ scene isn’t particularly visible. Of course, in a vast state of disparate communities and low-population density, that’s not exactly surprising.     

If you are travelling solo on an Intrepid group tour, you will share accommodation with a passenger of the same gender as per your passport information. If you don’t identify with the gender assigned on your passport, please let us know at time of booking and we’ll arrange the rooming configuration accordingly. A single supplement is available on some tours for travellers who do not wish to share a room.

For more detailed and up-to-date advice, we recommend visiting   Equaldex  or the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association’s most recent   report on state sponsored homophobia  before you travel.

Does my trip to the United States support The Intrepid Foundation?

Yes, all Intrepid trips support the Intrepid Foundation. In fact, we make a donation on behalf of every traveller. Trips to the United States directly support our foundation partners, C ultural Heritage Economic Alliance (CHEA) and t he Grand Canyon Conservancy .

Cultural Heritage Economic Alliance (CHEA)

Cultural Heritage Economic Alliance (CHEA) create inclusive, equitable opportunities for small Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) tourism businesses in the USA. Donations help CHEA provide access to industry-specific technical assistance, capacity building, and industry networks for small BIPOC travel and tourism businesses through their Diversity Tourism Academy (DTA). Intrepid will double the impact by dollar-matching all post-trip donations made to The Intrepid Foundation.

The Grand Canyon Conservancy

The Grand Canyon Conservancy is on a mission to protect the Grand Canyon National Park for future generations. With almost 6 million visitors to the park annually, the Grand Canyon Conservancy runs educational programs and immersive experiences that teach people about the park's cultural and environmental significance. Donations support trail restoration and maintenance, conservation and preservation of native vegetation and wildlife, and educational programs. Intrepid will double the impact by dollar-matching all post-trip donations made to The Intrepid Foundation.

Frequently asked questions

Is summer the best time to visit alaska.

Alaska is amazing any time of year, but most travelers prefer to visit during the warm and bright summer months. Summer time is when you can visit Alaska’s National Parks, when the scenery is amazing and when you can enjoy a wide range of activities such as hiking and kayaking.

Alaska’s summer travel season starts in the middle of May and goes through the middle of September. June and July typically are the best summer weather months. Starting the middle of August, Alaska’s fall season starts.

What is the Alaska weather like in summer months?

Summer time comes with sun, heat, rain and even snow in high elevations. End of May through middle of July, we have the most sunlight (nearly 24 hours), the warmest temperatures (between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit), and the best weather (mostly sunny, very little rain). Starting the middle of August, our fall season starts which often comes with more rain and cooler temperatures.

What should I pack for summer in Alaska?

As an “outdoor” destination, you should be packing casual clothing and active outdoor wear.  Layers are important in Alaska as it can be hot, cool and rainy all in one outdoor adventure day. For day boat cruises that take you out on open water, you want extra and warm layers, including a scarf, hat, and gloves, as it can be chilly on the boats. For foot wear, pack comfortable walking shoes or hiking boots. Bring sun lotion and insect repellent. Don’t forget to pack your camera and binoculars, if you have them. For more detailed information and more Alaska packing tips – read more here…

Alaska Adventure Holidays & Tours

Explore Alaska on one of our Alaska adventure holidays and tours.

Alaska has a lot to offer. Lying in the far north west of the United States the state is famous primarily for it's vastness, wildlife and national parks. Alaska is home to Denali, the highest peak in the US and 17 of the countries 20 are also in Alaska.

The famous Yukon river also runs all the way through Alaska and into the Yukon region of Canada which boarders the eastern side of Alaska.

Alaska attracts tourists due to the epic scenery of mountains, lakes and the ecology supporting local wildlife. Boasting eight national parks the main attractions here include the Mendenhall glacier, whale watching, kayaking, many trekking routes in the parks and so much more. 

The vast majority of our adventures begin and most end in Anchorage, the main city - but no the capital - of the state. Most tours focus on the outdoors, the wildlife and experiencing the wilderness.

Popular Adventures

Here are the top ten most popular adventures in Alaska but please click here to see everything we have...

Alaska's Kenai Peninsula - 6 Days

Explore alaska - 9 days, alaska adventure - 14 days, outdoor alaska - 14 days, grand alaska camping - 12 days, alaska winter adventure - 8 days, alaska journey - 10 days, alaska summer family holiday - 7 days, alaska kenai & denali adventure - 8 days, wildlife of alaska.

Alaska is maybe most famous for its vast wilderness and the wildlife that the epic surroundings supports.

The most popular animal to see is of course the Bear. Brown and Black bears are common in parts of Alaska. They're closely related to the Polar Bear and can usually be found close to or near by rivers where they fish for Salmon primarily.

The rivers not only boast healthy populations of salmon and other fish but they also support the ecology of birds specifically the eagle population. The Bald Eagle is the most common and can be found on the coast lines and waterways inland.

Other popular animals to see, although rather more difficult, are wolves. There are various species of Wolf throughout the state and it will be a feather in your hat if you see one!

Finally of course is maybe the most iconic animal of all associated with Alaska the Moose! Many people say that Moose are much larger than they expected when seeing one for the first time. Here's hoping you see one on your travels!

Getting There

Getting to the Alaska is pretty straight forward. 

Daily flights are offered direct to most of the country’s major cities. There is also a huge availability of domestic flights, which means you can fly to a town nearest the start of your adventure tour. Some low-cost airlines like Norwegian Air for example have started flying direct to many of the bigger cities where you can find deals from the UK for as low as £260 (at the time of writing.) Try to book as far as you can in advance as ticket prices can rise significantly.

Solo Traveller In Alaska

If you're a solo traveller looking for a group to join you're in the right place. Almost all of our trips are small group experiences and guided. usually around half of those on any group are solo travellers with the other half made up of couples and friends. 

Solo travellers are paired within someone of the same gender to share a room but if you'd like your own room you can often pay a little extra.

If you'd like to find out who is going and already booked on any departure date please do make contact as we can find out.

When To Travel

Alaska's winter runs from October to April and the temperatures are very, very cold with short days. 

So, we recommend the best time to travel to Alaska is between mid to late to through to September. The days are longer, the weather more pleasant being around 18 Celsius  on average , good but not beach weather! During this period the abundant Alaskan wildlife is also visible making your holiday more memorable.

It is worth nothing though that the weather can change quickly particularity at any altitude so be prepared.

To enter the United States as a tourist you may not need a visa if you’re a UK or EU citizen and intend to stay for less than 90 days, however you do need to apply for the Visa Waiver Program. To find out more visit https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/

You may also need to show your return ticket upon arrival and / or complete a landing card upon arrival. UK citizens if you’re staying longer than 90 days then you’ll need to apply for a visa before travelling. If you over stay you may be fined and / or detained so it’s not worth the risk!

As always we recommend checking the latest country entry requirements with your national foreign travel office, for UK citizens this is the Foreign Travel Advice section of www.gov.uk, please click here to view to USA page.

The United States uses the U.S dollar as their currency. Cities are generally more expensive (food, accommodation, shopping) than smaller towns. 

Food and drinks are usually quite a bit cheaper than in the UK but it’s very important to remember that tipping is mandatory and not leaving a 15-20% tip in bars and restaurants can be seen as insulting. Other places where tips are expected are taxis, salons, hotels (porters), but if you’re unsure, check with your local guide. 

Another thing to remember while shopping is that sales tax is added afterwards. So the number on the price tag is not the final price you will have to pay. ATMs are very common and most places accept credit and debit cards.

Most of our trips are completely incident free, but of course there is crime taking place in this massive country, with most crimes reported taking place in the bigger cities. Just take your normal travel precautions and use common sense. If you’re unsure if an area you’d like to venture off to is more unsafe, it’s best to check with your local guide. 

Having noted this we should highlight that the vast majority of trips are incident free and you need not worry but it’s better to be aware and informed than not. 

The emergency number is 911.

Some vaccinations may be required pending where you are going, when and what you’re doing. Standard and correct advice is to check with your GP before travelling as they’ll have the up to date information.

Travel insurance is mandatory on all our trips so please ensure you take out a policy before travelling. 

Helpful Information

Our guided adventures will take you to places well off the beaten track and provide experiences that most people just won’t get, with that in mind we encourage you to check out our growing selection! We have a lot of trips and you may find something you like but if not, please do make contact and we can always tailor make a trip for you.

We recommend trying ALL THE FOOD you can!

We try to ensure we work with the BEST local companies but remember, if you’re on a trip and don’t feel like an activity or continuing, you can stop. You don’t need to do anything you don’t want to!

Day 2 : Alaskan Scenery

Our adventure starts with traveling along fjord-like Turnagain Arm, on one of the most beautiful stretches of highway in Alaska. Enjoy picturesque views as we head for the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, a sanctuary dedicated to preserving Alaska’s extraordinary wildlife. We take a scenic tram ride at Alyeska Resort for views of hanging glaciers and mountain peaks within the Chugach Mountains. On our way back to Anchorage, keep watch for eagles and moose. Following our welcome lunch, enjoy the rest of the day at leisure.

Day 3 : The Iditarod Trail

A scenic morning drive takes us to Wasilla in the Matanuska Valley, an agricultural and supply center for Alaska’s remote interior. Here, we visit the Iditarod Trail Headquarters to learn about extraordinary sled dogs and the famous Anchorage-to-Nome race. We then enjoy a photo stop at the Alaska Veterans Memorial, dedicated to each branch of service. En route to our accommodations in the Denali area, we watch for views of soaring Mount Denali, the tallest mountain in North America.

Day 4 : Denali National Park and Preserve

We kick off our morning by joining a naturalist guide for a thrilling journey into the tundra of Denali National Park and Preserve. At six million acres, it is one of the largest unspoiled regions in the world. Watch for grizzly bear, moose, caribou, and Dall sheep. Later, we cross the Alaska Range, with sweeping vistas of untouched wilderness.

Alaska Air (ALK) Rides on Rosy Air Travel Demand: Is It a Buy?

A n improvement in air-travel demand bodes well for Alaska Air Group ’s ALK top line. Driven by the upbeat demand, ALK exceeded the Zacks Consensus Estimate for first-quarter 2024 earnings by 15.6%. Sales beat estimates by 2.4%.

Strong Passenger Volumes Drive Upbeat Views

Anticipating air-travel demand to be rosier given the presence of the summer holiday period, ALK issued bullish earnings per share guidance for second-quarter 2024. ALK expects second-quarter earnings per share to be between $2.20 and $2.40. The Zacks Consensus Estimate is currently pegged at $2.37, well above the mid-point ($2.30) of the guided range.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for second-quarter revenues is currently pegged at $2.98 billion, suggesting an increase of 33.6% from first-quarter 2024 actuals. The consensus mark for June quarter revenues indicates 5.2% growth from the year-ago levels.

Adding to the bullishness, management lifted its 2024 earnings per share guidance. ALK now expects adjusted earnings per share in the $3.25-$5.25 band. The earlier guidance was in the band of $3-$5 per share.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the same is currently pegged at $4.69, well above the mid-point ($4.25) of the guided range. The guidance lift resulted in analysts revising their earnings estimates for ALK positively.

Robust Price Performance

Driven by upbeat passenger volumes, ALK shares have gained 7.1% over the past three months against its industry’s 5.9% decline. ALK shares have also outperformed the broader Zacks Transportation sector, which has declined 11.2%.

ALK Expands Capacity to Meet Demand Growth

Alaska Air is expanding its network by introducing new routes as it offers the largest summer schedule in its history in anticipation of the busy summer season ahead.  The airline is also making other arrangements like increasing the number of daily flights in its network that fly to popular destinations.

During the peak summer months (June, July and August), ALK, currently carrying a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy), added almost one million seats to meet the demand swell. In fact, owing to the buoyant air-travel demand scenario, ALK carried in excess of 500,000 guests to their destinations over the recent Memorial Day weekend. The figure represents a 6% year-over-year increase. ALK expects that its busiest days in the summer season will be before and after Jul 4, where almost 160,000 passengers are expected to fly on ALK flights each day.

In view of the aforementioned bullishness, we believe investors should add ALK stock to their portfolios now for healthy returns. Its current Zacks Rank supports our thesis.

Other Airline Stocks to Consider

Investors interested in the airline industry may also consider some other top-ranked stocks like SkyWest SKYW and Copa Holdings CPA. Each stock presently sports a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy). You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank stocks here.

SkyWest's fleet modernization efforts are commendable. Upbeat air travel demand also supports the company. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for SKYW’s 2024 earnings has improved 5.9% in the past 60 days. The stock has risen 56% year to date.

SKYW has an expected earnings growth rate of more than 100% for 2024. The company delivered a trailing four-quarter earnings surprise of 128.09%, on average.

Latin American carrier Copa Holdings is being aided by upbeat air-travel demand. We are also encouraged by its initiatives to modernize its fleet.

Over the past 60 days, the stock has seen the Zacks Consensus Estimate for 2024 earnings being revised 3.2% upward. CPA surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate for earnings in each of the last four quarters by an average of 20.2%.
