Letter from Kirk

Dear Alaska Traveler,

It's been over 30 years since we started Alaska Wildland Adventures (AWA)! Our simple goal back then was to share Alaska's wilderness with a few people who wanted a high-quality, "true Alaska" vacation experience without compromising comfortable accommodations. Today, we proudly continue this tradition as Alaska's leader in lodge-based adventure travel.

There's one other thing that hasn't changed over all these years: the uniqueness of Alaska's wilderness just can't be mass-produced. We believe that smaller groups mean a bigger experience, and it gets you closer to the Alaska you seek. You can lose your thoughts (and worries!) amidst the vastness, and you can find yourself at home and at ease in a wild place few people know well.

We are proud of the accomplishments we've made as a company over the years, and our efforts in wilderness preservation and ecotourism so Alaska can be enjoyed for generations to come.

We're honored to share our wonderful state with you, be this your first or fifteenth visit to Alaska. We look forward to helping you select the trip that is just right for you whether you choose to travel with us for two days or two weeks. We'll help you find the authentic Alaska experience you seek.

We hope you can join us this summer!

Happy adventuring,

Kirk Hoessle, President
