We had a fantastic time. Everything ran like clock work, the activities we did were extremely well organised, informative and above all fantastically enjoyable. We cannot thank everyone enough for their professionalism and organisational skills. To top everything off we saw the most amazing display of the Northern Lights, something I will never forget.......we certainly will be back.

"Awesome scenery at every curve"

We are so grateful for the careful planning and ideal itinerary for our vacation. We had a complete portfolio of maps, places to visit, and reservations. We loved every hotel or mountain cabin we stayed in, the boat ride through the Seward fjords, the sternwheel ride in Fairbanks, the bush ride into Denali Park for a close enough encounter with a mama grizzly and her 2 cubs....and awesome scenery at every curve.
