We are honored to share a part of Juneau’s history with you, as you fly in a classic DeHavilland Otter seaplane from the capital’s historic waterfront and beyond. View the remnants of an ice age as you soar over 5 glaciers branching from the Juneau Icefield. Experience a river landing in front of the rustic and elegant Taku Glacier Lodge, where a salmon feast awaits you. Soak up nature in the best possible place- remote wilderness of Alaska. A birds-eye view, getting in the heart of wild nature and appreciating the bountiful waters and land of Alaska is what makes us what we are and what we value sharing with so many.
Selected as an operator of “Best of the World” trips by National Geographic Traveler, Maple Leaf Adventures has pioneered conservation-focused, expedition cruises along the Inside Passage since 1986. With a reputation as one of the west coast’s top sustainable tour operators, its multi-day Alaska cruises give guests unique insight into the region’s natural wonders, often areas that were once under threat of destruction. Expeditions differ from your typical cruise ship; guests are immersed in the natural and cultural history of the world they are exploring, each day becoming more in tune with the rhythms of the coast. Small groups move between locations and live and dine aboard a classic, converted tugboat. She accommodates up to twelve guests with a crew of five, including a naturalist and chef.
Maple Leaf Adventures is an innovator in regenerative tourism. One of the first operators of small-boat travel in Alaska, BC’s Great Bear Rainforest and northwestern Vancouver Island, they allocate significant resources to support and build a conservation-based economy on the coast. Maple Leaf’s leaders are fuelled by their education in environmental studies and social responsibility. Their vision is to drive a made-on-the-coast, high-quality nature-based tourism industry, that has a symbiotic relationship with coastal ecosystems and cultures and integrates with both indigenous and western cultures along the coast.
Experience Alaska Tours was started in 2003 as a business partnership between George Inlet Lodge owners, Carstens Jasper and Patricia Shaughnessey, and Great Alaska Lumber Jack Show owner, Rob Sheer. The company originally offered one tour, its Wilderness Exploration & Crab Feast. The original tour concept included having a local narrated boat tour including historical, cultural, and natural resource information, in addition to pulling local crab pots and learning about Dungeness crab. At the time, there were not Fish & Game regulations that allowed for tour participants to pull the crab pots without a sport fishing license, which would have been cost prohibitive. Experience Alaska Tours went through the State of Alaska Board of Fish process to have a Super Exclusive eco-tour regulation put into place, allowing for guests to pull the pots and experience the crab fishery first hand. The next season the company added a 20-minute flightseeing excursion to its offerings and operated the two tours through the 2007 season. In 2008, Rob Scheer sold his interest to George Inlet Investments, a local investment group including long-time Ketchikan resident and businessman, Kirk Thomas & his family. In 2009 the company added additional tours including a combination tour, partnering with the Rainforest Sanctuary and ACT and HAP Alaska to provide a crab meal in conjunction with a motor coach tour and the rainforest walk. The company has continued to grow, including the addition of tours on the north end of the island (Alaska Lodge Adventure & Seafeast at Silverking Lodge), additional combination tours (Saxman Totems & Crab Feast, Alaska Lumberjack Show & Crab Feast), and the replacement of its boat fleet to include two new 48 passenger tour boats. Experience Alaska Tours operates the bulk of its business from the George Inlet Lodge location. George Inlet Lodge is an old cannery bunkhouse that was floated over 70 miles on a log raft to its current Ketchikan location in the 1970’s. The lodge had been added to as tour needs have increased, but the main lodge still carries with it the original architecture and design.
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.
