2014 Arctic Rivers Tour

Join me as I celebrate my 35th year of guiding, answering everyone’s first question, "What’s your favorite river?” The tour will have all my favorite rivers in the Arctic; big and small, there will be something for every interest. Canoeing, rafting and pack rafting, even a first decent. Chase the big herds or roam the solitary ridges. We’ll be doing it all.

Guided Adventures in the Last Frontier - Since 1972!

Wilderness Alaska small logo

Since 1972, Wilderness Alaska has safely conducted quality exploration and educational trips across the width and breadth of Alaska's Brooks Range. Our nation's largest wilderness mountain range is located above the Arctic Circle and covers more than 75,000 square miles of northern Alaska. This magnificent and rarely visited region embraces unique wildlife communities,uninterrupted vistas and nameless expanses. But even more importantly, these inviting mountains and valleys offer a freedom and a sense of wonder and fulfillment to those willing to take the country on its own terms - to those who will wade an icy stream and huff their way to the high alpine splendor of the Arctic.

Wilderness Alaska has the experience, safety record, personal service and attention to individual goals to make your trip the special adventure you want it to be. We specialize in small personalized trips to rarely visited regions. In 2012 we are again offering a full variety of original outings into the timeless splendor of America's last wilderness mountain range. We continue to expand our offerings of increasingly popular sea kayaking trips in Prince William Sound to complement one's Arctic experience or as an alternative.

Along with the adventure and sheer euphoria of just being there, each of our trips tries to focus on an individual species, a particular phase of their life history or general natural history and examine it from the unique arctic perspective. Along the way of our casual examination into these lives you will see an intricate web of life woven here and though we may be looking at caribou, we may become equally familiar with grizzlies, golden plovers and woolly louseworts. We hope afterwards our adventure will have animated the delicate mysteries that unfold in the high arctic. With scenery and wildlife at their apogee, the experience of a lifetime awaits.
