Letters from our Guests

“Thank you for three of the greatest weeks of my life.”
Doug Cutler Classic/ Glacier/ Arctic Combo Tour
“This is the fourth camping tour I have done (two in Africa and one in Australia) and this one was at the top. The guides were ALWAYS professional, friendly, competent and knowledgeable. Well done.”
Gene Simring Family Tour
“I'd just like to say a big thank you. I went to Alaska not really knowing what to expect, but at the same time had very high expectations. I ended up being blown away and all expectations were exceeded!”
Katie Hunter Classic Alaskan Tour
“It was an amazing experience; I'll never forget it and I really appreciate the work and the effort your company put in order to offer the customers the best experience.”
Laura Antonini Classic Alaskan Tour
“We will strongly recommend Alaska Outdoors to friends and family. Great atmosphere and very professional guides. It was the perfect honey moon.”
Antonia and Martin Krusbaek Classic Alaskan Tour
“We continue to be amazed at the level of respect, the good humor, the interest, the willingness to participate and the general camaraderie we shared throughout our time together. Thanks for your thoughtfulness!”
Joanne Adjoian and family Classic Alaskan Tour
“I had an awesome time and would recommend you guys to all my friends. I usually don't camp and though I was skeptical it was a pleasant experience even for a city girl. Thanks again.”
Tracy Crocker Classic Alaskan Tour
“I am glad I chose Alaska Outdoors, definitely a key factor in making my time up in Alaska very memorable.”
Maya Puliyanda Classic Alaskan Tour
“We were impressed with the opportunities to experience the real out-of-doors – camping, rafting, glacier walking/climbing, fishing, hiking, etc. You offered all of these with basically a day of traveling to a new place and a day to experience what the area had to offer. We loved our experiences. It was the trip of a lifetime! We will try to be back!”
Peter and Mary Werne Wildland Glacier Tour
“The trip lived up and even exceeded my expectations. My fellow travelers were a diverse, fun group and we bonded early on, which added to the adventure. I loved Alaska and hope to come back one day.”
Anne Workman Wildlife Tour
“An amazing value. Inexpensive way to see the real Alaska, without compromising our experience or comfort. The Wildlife Tour had it all, there wasn’t one thing on my list of things and animals to see that I didn’t see. A lot of that has to do with luck, but a big part of it is having guides that know where to put their guests to increase chances of seeing the most wildlife. Alaska Outdoors certainly did that.”
Theresa Agozzino Wildlife Tour
“This was one of the best if not the best holiday I’ve ever had. Alaska was breathtakingly beautiful. The tour group was fabulous and really gelled together and our guide was ‘totally awesome’. I commend Alaska Outdoors for their insight and organization and hospitality. I would recommend your tour company in a heartbeat.”
Katherine Ryan Wildlife Tour
“Thanks for a great holiday. I enjoyed all aspects of it, especially being so close to nature and all it has to offer. Thanks!!!”
Faye Gorman Wildlife Tour
“We would rate our experience on this trip a 10. We had a wonderful time and would recommend your company to others. We did a week of cruising the week before we camped with you. We felt that we actually "experienced" Alaska on the camping portion of our vacation. Thanks for a great vacation!”
Brian and Joni Richmond Classic Alaskan Tour
“Heidi [Alaska Outdoors’ Guide] was a perfect 10. If I need to live in the wild, she is the only thing I need with me.”
Angela NG Wildlife Tour
“We would just like to reiterate what a fantastic experience this has been for us. Coming from so far away, we were a little unsure of what to expect. Alaska Outdoors has been successful in providing us with a superbly comfortable camping experience, some landscapes and wildlife that we will not forget in a hurry, and last but not least, friends that we shared some great times and will keep in touch with. From both of us a big thank you.”
Amrita Deb and Mark Manchanda Classic Alaskan Tour
“This trip has been a great experience. Your itinerary and places we stopped to camp were just amazing. This trip is definitely in my top 3!”
Anne-Cecile Meyer Wildlife Tour
“Thanks a lot, it’s something I’m going to remember for the rest of my life, it was such a great trip, A+ for everything, it was the best way to travel in Alaska for the first time.”
Francis Rouleau Classic Alaskan Tour
“The breakfasts (with good quality coffee) and dinners were all excellent and varied, the brownies cooked in the Dutch oven were superb, and I appreciated that my request for “no garlic” was taken seriously.”
François-Marie Patorni Wildlife Tour
“The overall experience was so good that it can’t be talked about adequately. Basically you can tell we are very, very satisfied clients and your guides had everything to do with that. Alaska contributed a fair share as well. We’ll never forget the experience that was created by you and your guides.”
Greg Kolar Classic/ Arctic/ Glacier Combo Tour (21 days)
“You’ve got a great organization!”
Jim Nehring Classic Alaskan Tour
“I really liked what I got and felt like I got everything promised and more. The guides were amazing, their knowledge and their great personalities were a great benefit to the tour.”
“Thank you, for an amazing two weeks! I’ll be back for the Arctic trip and if you guys ever do a winter – northern lights trip I’ll be there!!”
Kim Kisling Grand Tour Combo
“I would rate my experience as a 10.”
“All equipment provided was very satisfactory. There was nothing I felt I needed that I didn’t get.”
“The meals were very good and there was a big selection, my guides went out of their way to make sure that there was food without nuts as I have a nut allergy.”
“I enjoyed my time with Alaska Outdoors very much, it was extremely well planned and the guides went out of their way to ensure that everyone was happy and safe. I would just like to say thanks for making this a trip I will never forget.”
Rachel Salveta Classic Alaskan Tour
“I would rate my experience a 10. I enjoyed this trip very much.”
Roger Stein Arctic Tour
“All in all it was the best vacation I’ve had in years. I want to come back for sure and do the arctic trip! Thanks to all of you to organize this!”
Roos Keppler Grand Tour
“We could not have toured Alaska and seen so many extraordinary animals, majestic landscapes and terrains, experienced overwhelmingly wonderful moments on the rivers & mountains and had so much fun without your tour company”
The Wade Family Classic Alaskan Tour
“Everything was perfect! I would rate my trip an 11!”
Teresa Vinson Classic Alaskan Tour
“I’d rate the trip a 10+. For me, it was a perfect combination of doing things outdoors and learning more about where I was visiting. I thought the trip planning was well thought out, I don’t think there would be any way to improve this trip.”
“I believe camping is the only way to see Alaska and driving down the center, seeing the terrain change and getting into more remote areas was unforgettable”
Elaine Taylor
“I will say I have been telling everyone I know and many of my customers that asked me about my trip, I tell them about you and that you are the best. It seems as though you have a great group of employees that love what they do. Keep up the good work!”
The Bird Family
“Hope we can do it again sometime! We all had a great time and all hope it won't be our last trip to Alaska.”
John W. Hall
“Thank you for all of your time and patience with all of us. I know all of us had a super time and a time we will never soon forget. Thank you again and continue doing a great job.”
Clay Howard
“Wonderful trip! In traveling another two weeks after the Alaska Outdoors trip, I met other travelers and learned about other companies. Given all that, I would pick your company again. The trips are just the right size for my taste and the mix of camping and hiking was great!”
Linda Andrews
“We had a great time. I would definitely consider another one of your trips.”
John Fanta
“Keep up the good work. I will definitely recommend you if next year’s class wants to go to Alaska.”
Chris Elliott
“Each adventure/experience was a true high! I had a great time!”
Jewell Smith
“I just wanted to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our "Classic Alaskan" camping tour with Sophie. She was high spirited, organized, timely, went out of her way to be helpful in every way possible and I know that everyone in our group felt the same way! If she didn't know something, she immediately found the answer. She dropped what she was doing to make flight arrangements for us. Thanks to her, we were able to fly around Denali the ONLY hour that it was visible the three days we were there! I just wanted to let you know we thought very highly of her as a guide and would recommend you and your company whenever we have the chance!”
Jeannine Diner
“You spoiled us with your promptness and accuracy. The trip was more than we had imagined. We have told almost everyone we know about you and anyone else who would listen”
Pat and Bill Kackley
“I appreciate so much your knowledge, professionalism, leadership, patience, organization, hard work and cooking. Thank you so much for everything.”
Jane Wang
“I want to another trip with Alaska Outdoors- a longer one this time-and bring some friends. Thanks for a spectacular vacation.”
Sam Tritico
“I have not met any other guides with such a worry and concern as Mark and Sophie for my safety, comfort, enjoyment, diet, conversations, friendship… and music. Thank you!”
Maria Eugenia Azagra
“In all, this was overall the best organized tour I’ve ever taken. I would be delighted to recommend your services to any and all potential clients.”
Ofra Razel
“The staff and owner were extremely attentive and energetic… each campground was spectacular- a photo opportunity at every turn. I had a FANTASTIC TIME and I eagerly anticipate my return trip.”
Jaqueline Randolph
“Your personal attention to everyone and willingness to go an extra mile (and sometimes way out of your way) to make every client happy should be an example for everyone else. I’ll be more than happy to recommend Alaska Outdoors to anyone interested in getting close and personal with this great land.”
Vitaly Zinovyev
“Our guide really did “go the extra mile”. She worked so hard and made sure that the needs of every single person in the group were catered to- cooking, taking us to and from places, booking trips on our behalf, recommending hikes- she did it all!”
Paula Yeoman
“Thanks for making this vacation one of the best we have ever taken”
LuAnn Anderson
“Our guide was very knowledgeable and experienced which resulted in a richer experience for me.”
Wanda Lanier
“It was a wonderful week. Time out of time to just live in the now and experience the joy of being outdoors with good company and an experienced and fun-loving guide.”
Mary Odell
“Words just won’t do it justice- all I can say is thank you for the best experience of my life-something everyone, especially city-slickers, should experience for themselves. Thank you.”
Tanya Beauchamp
“Campgrounds were wonderful. The settings were beautiful and the surrounding areas were fun to discover and enjoy the elements.”
Blanche Cumiskey
“I cannot express completely how magnificent this trip was. From the moment J picked me up to the moment he dropped me off at the airport. His enthusiasm, care and knowledge never waned. I was very lucky to have met him and have him as our guide. I have many wonderful memories and experiences. I will certainly travel with you again. Thanks so much!”
Scott Steiner
“I have referred your company to everyone I’ve told about my trip. I had an amazing time and totally enjoyed my experience.”
Becky Sekosky
“I feel like I couldn’t have chosen a better way to see Alaska. It was great to spend all day and every night in the beautiful outdoors. I think I would have missed out on a lot if I had chosen a tour that used hotels every night.”
Madonna Gardner
“I can’t stop talking about my trip!”
Barbara Matievich
“Over a number of years we have participated various camping tours in Norway, Russia/ Eastern Europe, Kenya, Botswana, Namibia, Western Australisa, and South Africa. The two week Alaska camping tour with Alaska Outdoors was by far the best- not just because of the superb scenery and activities, but also because of the brilliant planning and organization of the itinerary, small group size, quality of equipment and camp sites, excellent food, and above all your own personal care and attention to every detail and personal interest in each tour participant. Thank you!”
Heather and David Wells
“I am more than happy to recommend Alaska Outdoors to anyone interested in getting close and personal with this great land. The way your tours are designed, organized and conducted is superior. Your personal attention to everyone and willingness to go the extra mile (and sometimes way out of your way) to make every client happy should be an example to everyone else.”
Vitaly Zinovyev
“The small intimate group setting really complimented the striking beauty that was all around us. We thank you all for making it a memorable trip and hope to come back again very soon.”
Jody and Aric Frantz
“An amazing value. An inexpensive way to see the real Alaska without compromising our experience or comfort. The Wildlife Tour had it all; there wasn’t one thing on my list of things and animals to see that I didn’t see.
