Press Coverage - Alaska Alpine Adventures
Outside Magazine April 2014
In 2013, owner Dan Oberlatz guided writer Christopher Solomon & photographer Gabe Rogel across the Alaska Peninsula and through the wild and remote Aniakchak National Monument & Preserve. They backpacked from the village of Port Heiden, located on the windswept Bering Sea coastline, up and over the caldera rim, and into the surreal confines of the largest volcanic caldera of its kind in Alaska. They camped along the shores of Surprise Lake, hiked the caldera rim, and basked in the solitude granted to the rare few who step foot in the least visited National Park unit in the nation. Their trip was featured in the May 2014 issue of Outside Magazine, and subsequently Christopher was interviewed on NPR and on Rick Steves’ nationally syndicated radio show in June of 2014.

National Geographic Traveler Magazine has recognized Alaska Alpine Adventure's Twin Lakes Paddle trip as one of their 50 Tours of a Lifetime! The Twin Lakes Paddle is one of our signature trips, and one that we feel represents the epitome of wilderness travel in Alaska. The supreme wilderness of Twin Lakes, located in the heart of Lake Clark National Park, is a wonderland of crystalline waters set beneath a rugged rim of mountains and vast tundra expanses. It’s home to countless species of wildlife, and the legacy of Dick Proenneke – the conservationist featured in the popular PBS documentary, Alone in the Wilderness.

If industrial pollution degrades the Lake Clark area’s vast watershed, Oberlatz believes a domino effect could claim animals, plants, fish—and the businesses and people that depend on each. “There aren’t any examples around the world where a large open-pit mine and a vibrant tourism industry coexist,” he says. “It’s never been done.”
