Denali Photo Guides has been offering small group, instructional photography excursions since 2010. Tours are designed to benefit visitors to Denali National Park who have an interest in photographing the beautiful landscapes in Alaska. Tours travel in luxury trucks along the boundary of Denali National Park, into Broad Pass, and on the Denali Highway, stopping several times to get out and shoot pictures. Tours are typically 3 to 4 hours in duration. Guests may have their own camera, rent one from us, or they may bring a smart phone. No matter what type of gear guests have or what their skill level is, our guides help visitors progress as photographers. With a maximum of 4 participants per tour, our guides spend a significant amount of one-on-one time with each guest. In addition to photography, guides also provide information about the area’s natural history, geology & culture. The small group size allows guests the freedom to ask any question they want (as many times as they want!). The combination of the small group with our selection of pristine locations fosters a truly immersive experience leaving guests with a lasting impression of the vastness, wilderness, and specialness of the Denali area.
Camp Denali’s long standing family ownership is committed to preserving and refining the fundamental elements of our mission: excellence, community, and place. Your Camp Denali experience is personal. It is a unique blend of camaraderie among fellow adventurers and staff in a wilderness environment without parallel. At the core of our guest experience is a chance to be close to the land and, in exploring Denali’s wilderness, to learn about its ecology and history. More than facts and figures about Denali, we hope our guests return home with new ways of seeing, understanding, and taking care of the natural world in their own backyards. In addition, we hope that our own on-site sustainable practices, such as operating on renewable energy with our 90kW solar array and utilizing our greenhouse to grow our own fresh produce, will provide an opportunity for our guests, staff, and other small business owners in Alaska to learn about viable alternatives to the status quo. For us, providing excellent hospitality is not about attending to every luxury or amenity. Instead, we strive to ensure our guests’ comfort, meet their needs, and surpass their expectations.
Our passion is making our guests feel comfortable and connected in the northern Alaskan forest that we call home. We are a small-scale, family-run business focused on providing authentic experiences for our guests. We offer single or multi-day adventures dog sledding, skiing, and snowshoeing. We take only private groups of 1-4 people and customize the experience to each group’s desires to create unforgettable adventures.
We strive to live as close as we can to the place we’re in. We hunt, fish and grow much of our food for us and our dog family. We feed our guests healthy, homemade and local food. We do our best to use technology that doesn’t insulate us from a direct experience with our environment. On a trip with us, you will travel on trails we have cut, stay in tents we have sewn or cabins we have built and use gear that is made from and indigenous to the area we’re traveling in. We live in the place we guide, and we want to make sure that it is still just as beautiful and bountiful when we’re in the ground and future generations are tromping around.
At Arctic Dog Adventure Co., we have a genuine interest in taking care of our clients, our community, and the distinctive landscapes of Northern Alaska. Our speciality is long distance travel by dog sled, providing low-impact access to pristine wilderness areas. We offer dog sled tours rooted in principles of sustainability, authenticity and “rustic luxury” — warm, comfortable accommodations in the most remote and wild places, and an emphasis on utilizing locally sourced ingredients and products. To us, ecotourism is about offering our clients a responsible, authentic Alaskan experience. Travel by dog team is an ideal way to realize this. Sled dogs have been part of the Northern landscape for millennia. Their thick fur, tough pads and indomitable desire to pull make them perfect companions in Northern travel and exploration. Our dogs are the heart and soul of our operation. We pride ourselves on offering our huskies the highest standard of dog care possible. Guests who visit us will meet dogs that are happy and content. It brings us great joy to share our love and respect for our dogs, and the landscapes of Interior Alaska, with others.
