I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
Since this was my first trip on my own I felt very comfortable with the holiday providers as the owners were the people directly running the trip. They were always available to answer questions both before and during the trip. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone looking for an exciting overland tour of Alaska (and Canada too!). (more)Julie Woods
This is the best holiday my partner and I have ever been lucky enough to have. We thoroughly enjoyed it and it exceeded our dreams. If anyone is thinking of seeing Alaska and considering camping, this would be the tour to choose. (more)John Cracknell

I particularly enjoyed the sea kayaking, around beautiful islands with sea otters everywhere. (more)David Conway

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 optional ferry ride from Juneau to the fjord. Wonderful experience.
Also optional ice climbing on Exit Glacier...scary, exciting,mouthed my boundaries like nothing else. Great patient and encouraging guides who were very safety conscious.
Be prepared for early mornings and late nights. The ferry schedule rules everything. You will spend a lot of time travelling so be sure to take on the optional activities so you have a balance.
It's... (more)Alison Horch
So many, the beauty of Denali National Park, the remoteness and serenity of Maclaren River, the beauty of Valdez Bay and the fabulous team guides Natalie and Aaron bit if I must single out one experience it would be the visit to Kennecott in Wrangell/St. Elias National Park and the hike to and on the Root Glacier and the subsequent ice climbing. A fantastic time in an exquisite location .
In order to really enjoy this expedition to the fullest and to really... (more)Rob Roberto
There were many great aspects to the holiday - scenery, atmosphere, wildlife, tour guides, travelling companions, camp fir - the most memorable was sighting humpback whales whilst kayaking.
Get involved and keep your eyes open.
Apart from flying to get there and travelling around by bus there was very little environmental impact
Fantastic - a feast of experiences (more)Svend Johannsen
