Alaska Outdoors

Alaska Outdoors is a small, owner operated business since 2001 committed to the long-term health of our planet. We emphasize sustainable practices in all aspects of our operation. Our guided small group tours travel to Alaska’s National Parks and protected areas and feature the perfect blend of camping at established campgrounds, mixed with indoor accommodations. Each trip includes world class outdoor activities and opportunities for customization of your trip experience. Explore Alaska with like-minded people who enjoy the benefits of traveling with a small group and knowledgeable guide while actively experiencing Alaska.

Alaska Wildland Adventures

Alaska is our home, and we’ve been committed to providing the highest quality trips from the beginning, over 40 years ago. We were among the first to offer raft explorations of the Kenai River into the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, and we pioneered small-group explorations from the protected areas of Kenai Fjords National Park and the Kenai Peninsula to Denali National Park and Preserve. We know all the areas we visit intimately. Today, we are proud to continue this tradition as Alaska’s leader in soft adventure trips. We believe smaller groups mean bigger experiences, better memories and more smiles.

Sunny Cove Sea Kayaking

Sea kayaking along the coastline of pebbled beaches, sculpted cliffs and hanging glaciers where the wildlife is abundant and the forests untamed makes us realize we all share in the role of preserving the natural beauty of our area. Sunny Cove Sea Kayaking provides a wilderness experience with a variety of tours from 3-hours to multi-day kayak/camping trips in Resurrection Bay, Fox Island and the Kenai Fjords National Park. We choose areas that are best able to absorb our footprint and practice a Leave No Trace philosophy — we leave behind only our respect for the wilderness and its inhabitants. Sunny Cove takes an active role in advocating for wild lands to be left wild and supports local and statewide conservation efforts with donations and volunteer work. We provide our guide staff with training in natural history, local marine wildlife and the impact of our presence on vegetation, wildlife, and climate change — they in turn pass this information along to our kayakers. It is our hope that through our efforts in operating in a sustainable fashion, we will ensure that all of us and our grand kids can enjoy this beautiful place we call home.
