Discover Alaska’s birds during half or full-day trips in the interior, or multi-day trips across the state
Make images where few others have. Custom photo tours and workshops from the wilderness to the front-country
Get out. Way. Way. Out. Backpacking, paddling, basecamp, and custom trips to the wildest corners of Alaska
Few things compare to the chill night air, and the dancing northern lights. Single night and multi-day aurora tours
Scheduled, Fixed-Itinerary Trips
Though I mostly guide customized, private tours. I do offer the occasional trip for open signup. These trips fall into two categories: tried and true, popular itineraries like my 5 day/4 night Arctic Aurora Tour or experimental trips. This latter type are new itineraries, like my upcoming, wildlife and bird and photography focused trip the Arctic Birds and Brooks Range Photo Tour. I offer these new itineraries at a cut-rate price, and am looking for intrepid, enthusiastic, flexible, and easy-going participants to go along.
If you don’t want a fully private tour, these may be the trips for you.
