See another side of Alaska on a custom adventure with Alaska Wild Journeys out of Anchorage or Girdwood.

Explore Alaska’s unique and authentic side by hiring a guide for a day and creating a custom, private adventure for yourself and up to 7 others. Owner and guide Tim Cook has been guiding visitors in Alaska for 20+ years, so he knows how to find and train other exceptional guides. All come with their own unique specialties: naturalists, photographers, pros on ATVs and snowmobiles, those who know how to hike across a glacier, and many others. All guides are also locals, so not only will they take you to places they would take their own friends and family, but they’ll also give you a sense of what living in Alaska is really like.

Walking on the Matanuska Glacier is one of Wild Alaska Journey's most popular summer excursions.
