Welcome to Alaska Alpine Adventures

Dear Friends,

Welcome to Alaska Alpine Adventures and our 18th season!  In 2016, as we be celebrate 17 years as a leader in wilderness travel and exploration of Alaska's spectacular national parks and wildlife refuges, we will also be celebrating the 100th anniversary of America's National Park System.  This historic centennial will allow us to reflect on our amazing history as well introduce an ever growing number of adventure travelers to some of Alaska's 50-million acres of National Park lands and our unique methods of Alaska adventure travel. 

Alaska Alpine Adventures has built an international reputation as Alaska's premier small-group pure Adventure Travel Company, guiding in Alaska's great parks.  Exploring Alaska's national parks and wildlife refuges is our passion, and that passion is reflected in each adventure trip we lead.

Why do so many of our guests return year after year to continue to explore Alaska with us?  We'd like to think that it's our award-winning, all-inclusive itineraries, our impeccable safety record, our gourmet backcountry cuisine, our seasoned naturalist guides, and our commitment to sustainable travel and environmental excellence.  But the answer is far more personal!  Our guests are drawn by the magnetism of northern wilderness and its creatures.  They revisit to savor the palpable emotion of solitude, and to immerse themselves in something that few are fortunate enough to experience - pure and untouched wilderness.  In many ways, our clients return to Alaska to find themselves.

So enjoy with us our 17th year!  Our hope is that the imagery* and stories you see here on our website will not only inspire you to take a trip with us, but will also compel you to help us protect the last great American wilderness that is Alaska.

As your guides to Alaska’s national parks and wildlife refuges here’s how 2016 is shaping up:
