Accessible Oveview:
We are a small family run business and catering to different needs and expectations is what we do for everyone.
Limited Mobility:
Our trips are outdoor-orientated camping trips and many of our days are very active. We include hiking, canoeing and kayaking. However we have had clients on our trips that are only able to walk a limited amount and have left out canoeing or kayaking. As long as you are flexible, we are, too!
Limited Vision:
You should be comfortable in finding your own way around places you have never been to. We had clients with limited vision in the past – the best is to contact us directly and we will see what we can do.
Limited Hearing:
We write down our daily agenda for every day and we are happy to talk to our clients one to one if this helps with understanding our day plans.
'Free from' food:
We cater easily to vegetarians, vegans, lactose-free or gluten-free dietary requirements. Please let us know beforehand and we will talk with you about what kind of food you are able to eat. Due to Alaska’s remoteness please be aware that many of the stores will not carry certain products, but with a little bit of planning ahead we can usually manage.
LGBT:
We run international tours, love to meet people from around the world and work together in a fun, open-minded group environment.

Responsible tourism: Alaska adventure holiday, Kenai Peninsula

Environment

Alaska is one of the last places in this world with pristine and untouched wilderness. It goes without saying that we recycle to local possibilities and leave our campsites exactly as we found them. Being out in the wilderness also means teaching our guests how to interact with wildife safely. We make sure to not put wild animals in any danger through frequent interaction with humans. For bears this means for example to never leave any food or trash open or unlocked in our camps to make sure these beautiful wild animals don't get used to different food sources other than what mother nature provides them.

Our Overland Vehicle is running carbon neutral. As much as we believe that the only right way is to save ressources and find ways to reduce CO2 emmissions we also think running our vehicle carbon neutral is at least a start: It is a necessary second-best solution for us as a small company. We decided to go with atmosfair, which is a climate protection organisation with a focus on travel. They actively protect the climate by compensating greenhouse gases through the use of renewable energies, among other activities. This means we are calculating the fuel consumption for a whole year. 3 liters of fuel equals 3 kg of CO2. For the amount of CO2 emissions we will pay atmosfair to compensate and reinvest in green energy projects.

Community

We believe that traveling broadens your mind. Group travel allows you not only to encounter the culture of the places you are visiting it also allows you to interact with people from different countries learning about their living experiences. Being out in the nature and sleeping under the stars brings you freedom and may give you different perspectives and views on you life back home.

Being a small family run business, we pride ourselves on developing relationships with the locals, most notably the local suppliers. When we provide accommodations, or even when we go ice climbing, we do everything we can to work with small local businesses. Going shopping, we look for local farmers’ markets to purchase local produce.
If we are providing accommodations, we work with people like Mary Jane and Tony Lustufka who have been running a local bed and breakfast for over 20 years. The activities we provide through third party suppliers are with locals like fishing with Jim Lavrakas or a small family run bear viewing company like Smokey Bay Air. This is supporting the local fishermen culture in Alaska which at the same time provides unique experiences for our clients.
Whenever possible we include local festivals/concerts of Alaskan bands into our itinerary.
