Starting out...
  • On average, treks will spend $1000-1500 per person. Some have spent over $3000 per person (17-day).  Most treks start on a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday.  Most groups arrive late at night due to cheaper air fare

  • Trek sizing is groups of 12 ("Backcountry" group) or 14 ("Van Tour" group).

    • "Van Tour" groups typically do a potpourri of activities and move around every 1-3 days to different venues, camping at established or third-party managed campgrounds (think car-camping with day excursions)

    • "Backcountry" groups typically spend their time off the beaten path doing multi-day sea kayaking, backpacking, or rafting trips while camping at locations only accessible by boating or hiking. 

  • As you plan your trip to Alaska, you can bring multiple groups that will be broken into smaller trek groups to meet our maximums.
