It’s as far, as deep and as untouched you can go in the USA—a backcountry paradise far beyond any road. Travel by bush plane and float plane, over moraines and soaring mountains, to blaze your own trails along streams filled with salmon, as eagles soar above in in the remotest corners of Katmai and Lake Clark national parks.
You're in the Alaska even Alaskans dream of. Here, you trek through the state’s most epic national parks and spend nights removed from the world, in a world all its own. It’s only you and eagles, caribou, moose, and grizzly bears. You’ll leave transformed, having learned the difference between wild and Alaska wild.
Our Alaska takes you to the most remote part of the 49th state, built for those who seek the thrill of being way, way off the grid. If you want to immerse yourself in wilderness, this trip is for you.
The season runs May through August, with peak salmon runs (and wildlife viewing) in mid-July and August.
Fishing or tracking, wildlife viewing or climbing—or a healthy mix of everything? We’ll adjust our Alaska itinerary to suit the backcountry experience of your dreams.
Our Alaska is backcountry camping on mountain-rimmed tundra and lakeside beaches, plus a grand finale of luxurious cabins at an all-timer location.
Location location location. We pitch tents by pristine streams and glacial lake beaches backed by rugged peaks in Alaska’s true wilderness. We eat well under the stars, too, with locally sourced ingredients cooked in our camp-kitchen.
Days of hiking is rewarded by a lodge wedged between mirrored lake waters and towering peaks at Lake Clark National Park. Breathe in the wildflowers and listen out for wildlife from a country-style lodge with unforgettable, home-cooked feasts.
Our private itineraries are ideal for groups of four or more—you and friends, families, and multi-generational groups. This backcountry adventure is limited to no more than 10 people, due to permit limitations in the national parks we visit.
Our level of curation and care. We handle everything, overseeing your experience from beginning to end, with the highest levels of ownership and responsibility. We also support you each step of the way, with comprehensive trip materials and itineraries, detailed day-by-day options, insider destination info, gear recommendations, and 24/7 dedicated support.
Preferably three to six months in advance. Alaska’s summer season is short, and demand for permits and float planes and accommodations are high. Advance reservations are important to secure the best locations and accommodations possible.
