Alaska holidays. Tours & holidays in 2015 & 2016



Alaska is a place to embrace the extreme. The USA’s highest peak, Mt. McKinley, is located in Denali NP. It’s home to the largest national park in the USA, Wrangell–St. Elias, at over 32,000 km². And much of it is only accessible by boat or plane. Go glacier climbing, kayak through fjords, hike the tumultuous taiga and sub-arctic tundra with resident wildlife wonders such as whales, grizzly bears and wolves. But just go.

Alaska adventure holiday, salmon run
Memorable parts? It's difficult to pinpoint just one moment, as the whole stay in Alaska was wonderful from start to finish. Seeing all the wildlife, in Denali National Park (bears, caribous, wolves...),when on a boat in the Kenai fjords (orcas, sea lions, humpback whales...), but also just when travelling casually on a road, was fantastic: they're just part of everyday life in Alaska. Having the feeling that you are not in an overcrowded holiday spot was also a big "plus" to me, you are... (more)Bettina Bernhardt

Alaska holiday, classic camping tour
Best holiday that our family of four has ever had. (more)Howard Robinson
It was an amazing experience. I fell in love with the place and the group I travelled with and our guide were super!! Which made the trip even more memorable. The itinerary was great and it was all very well organised and hassle free. (more)Maria Sarda
The most memorable part was the optional extra activity of kayaking among icebergs off the Columbia glacier out of Valdez, Alaska. (more)Mary Jane Mahony
From £1819 - £1999 excluding flights
Alaska and Yukon classic camping tour
Memorable parts? We travelled a great distance, saw tons of great scenery and was able to do a variety of activities so I can't really say that one thing stands out however Dawson City (both times) was great. Tips? Bring a bug hat/jacket and some good bug spray. Bring a variety of warm clothes (e.g. mitts, wool hat...) even in the summer months - you never know what the temperature will be like. It really is an active tour and to be ready for this. You do no have to be an athlete... (more)Mary Ellen Ruddell

Alaska wilderness lodge
Our vacation was a dream come true. Owner, Keith has built the whole place by hand with logs he found on the nearby beaches. What he has done is remarkable and his wife Randi adds the special touches that make the place really feel like being home. (more)Lynn Kelly
Our cabin was comfortable, the view from our bed was to die for!!! Snow covered mountains on each side, ocean in between, dolphins and otters playing in the cove, islands and a steaming volcano in the distance. (more)Phyllis Sarayusa

Alaska wildlife cruise
Memorable parts? The whole trip was outstanding from start to finish. The boat was great - large enough to give everyone space but small enough to be personal. The crew were exception and had the holiday, Brian the very experience skipper who had time to talk to everyone and was extremely knowledgeable, Steve nothing was too much trouble, Annie the cook who provided first class food made fresh everyday and Danny the naturalist who was knowledgeable and great fun. And finally the wildlife... (more)Sarah Taylor

Alaska adventure cruise
Memorable parts? It has to be the Un-Cruise Adventure (though the road trip was pretty good as well). Tips? As they recommend, take plenty of layers and wet weather clothing (activities take place regardless of weather so you need the right stuff for hiking & kayaking, as well as watching the scenery and wildlife from the boat. Don't worry about "evening clothes" - most people only changed in the evenings if their day clothes got wet, and then jeans are fine. Local benefits? Having... (more)Lavinia Martins
