Plan & Book Your Dream Trip


Meet Bob

In 1986, while living in Boston and working for a strait-laced consulting firm, Bob dreamed up an audacious plan to celebrate his 25th birthday: go to Alaska (a place he’d never been) and climb Mt. McKinley. Most of his friends thought he was nuts, since he had no ice climbing or winter camping experience. But after 35 days on the mountain—14 of them alone—he reached the summit, all because one Alaska insider, a veteran mountaineering guide named Rob, took Bob aside and shared his secrets on how to do it.
What’s this got to do with your Alaska vacation? Everything, actually. Getting insider advice from a trusted source is a good idea no matter where you go, but in a place as big and poorly understood as Alaska, it’s essential. Whether you want to hit Alaska’s highlights in your own way or venture a little more off the beaten path, is Bob’s way of doing for you what Rob did for him.

I have memories of a lifetime now. I cannot praise your website enough

Your very informative website helped me every step of the way. When planning the holiday i actually felt completely out of my depth- there really aren't a lot of "generic" websites that help you plan your hotels and activities in Alaska- most of them are tied to a tour company and limited to one activity. With, I got to research the types, locations and prices of every single hotel and activity in every place I was interested in visiting, as well as reviews and tips/tricks on how to holiday in Alaska. To say the website is a God-send is a vast understatement, I literally booked every single hotel room, activity and excursion through the website, I didn't have to go anywhere else which saved me loads of time when it came to planning and payment etc.

The trip was awesome, thanks to the tips we got from you and your website!

We were confused by the various glacier options and Denali National Park. Your website as well as quick yet detailed responses from you made us plan our trip well. We took your advise and booked the Tundra Wilderness Tour in Denali. We also visited a gold mine a bit east of Anchorage. It was a very memorable trip!
