Join a great naturalist guide for a hike or custom day trip in the spectacular South Denali area. They’ll pick you up in Talkeetna for a 3-mile Talkeetna Lakes Hike or heli-hike, or meet them an hour north in Denali State Park for an easy Byers Lake Nature Walk or exhilarating Denali Wilderness Hike. Join a scheduled trip, or they can customize a private trip to fit your schedule, activity level, interests, and group. They specialize in custom trips for families, groups, photographers, and birders. Their trips feature the area’s most experienced guides, stunning views of Denali, and great wildlife. They’ll take you to pristine natural areas where their guests make a close connection to Alaska’s natural landscape while moving under their own power and using all five senses. They give back, supporting local community and conservation groups by donating time, money and materials to projects such as the building of a community playground, sponsoring the Youth Conservation Corps, and volunteer trail days. They teach Leave No Trace to youth groups and to their guests, and keep the areas they visit free of invasive plants and litter.

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.
