Stories from Alaska

An insider's journey through Alaska's best kept secrets

The Trip of a Lifetime

“All 8 Alaska National Parks in one trip! My wife and I just returned from a magical trip to Alaska. Our goal was to visit all of the eight National Parks in Alaska and we accomplished that thanks to Alaska Tours. I tried for a long time to arrange the trip by myself. It is difficult to plan the logistics of small planes, boats, the Alaska Train, etc. to travel from park to park, and most importantly, to see the best that each park has to offer. As soon as I enlisted Alaska Tours, my problems were over. They came up with a great plan, specifically for my wife and me, which enabled us to do everything we wanted and much more. They arranged high quality lodging, Gold Star service in the dome train to and from Denali, and boat expeditions into Glacier Bay and Kenai Fjords National Parks. They set up all our small plane flights with high quality experienced pilots. We saw an enormous array of wildlife, hiked on a glacier, went dog sledding, and witnessed glacial calving. We experienced several days above the Arctic Circle and went whale watching in Glacier Bay. Our trip ended in Katmai National Park where we saw an enormous amount of Grizzly Bears at Brooks Falls.

We had an issue with fog in Juneau which prevented us from flying to our next stop in Anchorage. Daniela from Alaska Tours was able to reschedule our next two excursions and get us totally back on track. This would be nearly impossible without someone of her expertise. The excursions fill up fast and I’m still amazed that she was able to straighten out our trip.

This was, indeed, the trip of a lifetime and I would advise anyone to put it on their bucket list. The breathtaking beauty of Denali and the other parks should not be missed. I would strongly suggest the services the services of Alaska Tours for a worry-free adventure. Daniela went out of her way checking up on our progress and made sure we had a fantastic and adventurous vacation.”
