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.

Bear Paw Adventure

Bear Paw Adventure’s four uniquely Alaska log vacation homes are situated on an original Alaska homestead site on the west side of the Kenai Peninsula near historic Anchor Point. The property has been kept as natural as possible providing habitat for wildlife such as moose and eagles that will be seen among the spruce, alders, willows and wildflowers. The buildings have been constructed primarily using simple hand tools from beetle-killed spruce taken off the property or nearby forests. Guests will enjoy the craftsmanship used in joining the logs and the unique log stairways, handrails and hand carvings. Be prepared to enjoy a sample of real Alaska with the comfort of warm and cozy energy-efficient heating, modern appliances, leather furniture and generous supplies. Located away from the busy commercial tourism centers, this is the place to get close to nature and enjoy real Alaska. Restaurants, shops, tour agencies and activities are just minutes away. Free on-site activities include wildlife viewing, horseshoes, beach volley ball, badminton, lawn croquet, miniature disc golf and picnicking. Bear Paw also provides free adventure planning and booking assistance for lodging guests and offers a variety of packages that can be customized to your interests.

Chugach Adventures

Chugach Adventures (formerly known as Chugach Adventure Guides and Class V Whitewater) was founded in 1996. The company explored & pioneered the Spencer Glacier area in 2000 and partnered with the Alaska Railroad starting in 2001 to offer trips via the Glacier Discovery Train to Spencer Glacier.
In the Fall of 2012, long-time Chugach guides and Girdwood locals, Melanee and Ari Stiassny, purchased the rafting business. Melanee & Ari share a passion for Alaskan adventure with their three kids. In winter 2015 /16, Chugach Adventures was awarded a ten year permit with the USFS Chugach National Forest to continue operating tours at Spencer Lake and are stoked to be now offering kayaking, overnight camping, heli hiking, and glacier salmon bakes at Spencer Glacier.

“We believe strongly in sharing our local stories and firsthand experiences of what we have seen and witnessed as Spencer Glacier has receded thru the years. We are committed to finding ways to protect our environment and aim to share our knowledge to our guests.”

Custom Alaska Cruises

Join us aboard our custom 70 foot expedition cruise vessel or our 100 ft private yacht, each vessel with four private guest suites, ensuite bathrooms for each stateroom, first class chef and full staff to meet all your needs. Experience Alaska in luxury. Kayaking, whale watching, glacier viewing, fishing, and many more enticing expeditions.

The Sikumi was custom built expressly for service in Alaska by one of the Northwest’s most renowned ship builders, and while finished for luxury, it was built tough. From the panoramic views at the galley table to the fully covered upper viewing deck, nothing was spared in creating a comfortable environment for our guests.

Motor yacht (M/Y) Golden Eagle, was added to our fleet in 2017. Built by Broward in the United States, the Golden Eagle was designed with luxury and sophistication in mind. With a spacious main salon and dining area there is no doubt our guests will find comfort while cruising through deep fjords and secluded coves. There are multiple covered outdoor seating areas to enjoy the breathtaking scenery and wildlife in Southeast Alaska.

A typical cruise will only have 8 adults onboard, and possibly some young sailors (we do offer adult only cruises as well). If you would like to bring up to 12 guests, you can charter the entire boat for the week. The highest crew to guest ratio, (5 crew to 8 guests) we are able to offer first class service, while truly experiencing Alaska. Our Alaska based captain will show you the real wilderness of Alaska.
Our Custom Alaska Cruises not only feature spectacular wildlife and scenery viewing, but we may be best known for our cuisine. Our on board 5 star professional chef will prepare one culinary delight after another for you, showcasing Alaska Seafood, catering to any special food needs, diets or allergies.
