1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The best part for me was that we saw that many animals. Animals everywhere on the road, campground and on the day trips. It was really good that Dave always took good pictures which we got at the end. And I also really liked the campfires in the evening where we were talking with each other and ate a lot marshmallows :)

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Don't think about it if you really should do it or not! Do it you will love it. If you like camping and do outdoor activities then chose this trip. It will be the best decision which you made for your Alaska holiday.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I think already that you are traveling in a group it's better for the environmental because then you only need one car/ bus and not everybody is driving. And they also support the local people because we went to kind of small campgrounds. And we also stopped by small villages where we went for a coffee or to buy a souvenir.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

It was a really good decision to choose our tour operator to travel Alaska. You are getting around which is kinda hard in Alaska without a car, you meet really cool people and you are going on good tours which are really worth it for what you pay. Nat and Dave also know a lot and they can answer many questions. And Nat and Dave are really friendly, fun and helpful people. And also the money that you are paying for this trip is worth it. You are really getting a lot for it.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

We were instantly drawn to the Alaska Denali Expedition because it encompassed everything we wanted from our time in Alaska – and it didn't disappoint! Natalie and Dave were great hosts, very knowledgeable and professional but also approachable and friendly. It is clear they have a passion for Alaska and the itinerary they have put together demonstrates that they care about showing their guests the best it has to offer.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Their converted school bus was a fantastic way to travel around and was comfortable with plenty of storage space for everyone. We were constantly impressed with the tasty meals that Natalie and Dave managed to put together on just a couple of gas burners and there was always plenty to go around, even in our large group. The tents they provided were really quick and easy to put up and were also very spacious. The camp sites we stayed in were all in spectacular locations, it is worth noting that some had better facilities than others! However, for us it wasn't a problem as wilderness camping is something we enjoy doing and it just added to the adventure! There was a very good selection of optional activities with something to suit everyone’s' tastes and abilities. All the activities we selected were excellent, it is definitely worth spending a little extra money to experience them.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Natalie and Dave have built up good relationships with local suppliers and all the optional activities they provide were all run by local companies. There were recycling facilities and we always left each location as we found it.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip and it has given us some incredible memories we'll treasure forever. We would 100% recommend this trip.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

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 .

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

In order to really enjoy this expedition to the fullest and to really capitalize on all the offerings ensure that you are physically fit.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Not really to any significant extent. Other than injecting money into the local economies by participating in the activities offered by local guiding/tour companies at each location there was not much else to recognize.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Overall, it was a fantastic trip and will be remembered fondly.
