Alaska Explorer Journey

For those travelers seeking an authentic - and educational - Alaska experience, we introduce a twist on our original trip. When we started operating tours more than 30 years ago, we explored most national parks by tent. This nine-day journey visits all our favorite places but replaces camping with the comforts of Alaskan lodging. Visit our original Kenai Riverside Lodge, the wilderness of the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge with two nights at Kenai Backcountry Lodge and a special adventure in Denali National Park.

Top 5 Reasons to Choose the Alaska Explorer Journey

  1. Engage your adventurous spirit and explore Alaska with us by foot, raft and small boat as you learn about the wilderness that most visitors never experience, while giving your family the perfect balance of adventure and comfort.
  2. This trip allows for unique lodge stays in a variety of accommodations, from authentic log cabins to comfortable B&B style rooms.
  3. Enjoy the opportunity to learn about Alaska's amazing natural and cultural history, with special guest lectures and programs, such as a "Welcome to the Subarctic" talk the evening we arrive in Denali.
  4. This adventurous itinerary allows you to relax and immerse yourself in the wilderness while our guides handle the logistics. Special rates for youth 7-18 years old make this an ideal vacation for families with older kids and the perfect venue for creating fond family memories and meeting new friends.
  5. This unique itinerary features activities and accommodations that would be difficult to arrange on your own. We have the entire journey prepared for you and your family, down to the last detail! Explore Alaska's seacoast on a marine wildlife and glacier tour to look for whales; raft, hike and take in beautiful scenery in both forested and tundra landscapes; learn about the Alaskan sport of dog sledding with a special visit to Jeff King's Husky Homestead and more!
