This was my first time with Alaska Wildland Adventures and I will definitely tell all of my friends! I chose the Ultimate Alaska Adventure and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The trip was a week and every day was different. I experiences virtually every mode of transportation...rafting, kayaking, canoeing, horseback riding, floatplane, boat, scenic train and speed boat!... More

You're in good hands with AWA. The staff went above and beyond, helping with everything from an internet connection to an extra helping of desert. The guides were expert fishermen and fun to be around. My dad and I have fished everywhere from Montana to Mexico, Maine to Manitoba and Alaska was always on our list. We stayed at the... More

So that's never happened! Four of our travelling group of seven cried when we were on the train heading back to Anchorage, but more on that later. For a truly private, privileged experience of Alaska where you are fed like CEO’s, educated by enthusiastic staff and never have to fight for a spot on the deck to get that photo... More

The first day we rafted the Kenai River, which was spectacular. We saw lots of wildlife, including bald eagles, a mother and baby moose, and even a grizzly bear fishing on the bank! Crossing the beautiful Skilak Lake brought us to the Backcountry Lodge, with breathtaking views of the lake and surrounding mountains. We hiked up to the tundra and... More

We started with a salmon fishing trip on the Kenai River. It was a great success. Then we took the boat ride from Seward to the Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge. I could not believe that we were able to experience remote Alaska wilderness with lodging in first-class accomodations and dining! We saw all kinds of wildlife, bears, whales, otters, salmon...

Words cannot describe the immaculate beauty of Alaska, but words can describe how professional, personable and fun the staff at Alaska Wildland Adventure is! We spent two nights at the Riverside and two nights at the Backcountry Lodge. The Backcountry is definitely the best of the two (1938 Lodge immersed in nature, great staff cooking incredible meals, hot sauna a... More

I can't say enough good things about my experience at both the Riverside and the Back Country Lodge. I am lucky to have found AWA accidentally online. My first trip to Alaska was made especially memorable by them. The staff was friendly, professional, knowledgable and punctual. The attention to every little detail was impressive, healthy cooking, lovely guides and staff... More

This vacation with Alaska Wildland Adventures was fantastic. They were well organized, polite, friendly, knowledgeable and safe. Our guide, Michelle, was most informative on all topics, history, botany, geology, biology, you name it. The staff members at all the lodges had the ,"what can we do for you" attitude. The food was not good, it was great! My wife was... More

Our family just returned home from a fantastic 9 day guided tour with Alaska Wildland Adventures. This tour and expert guides exceeded our every expectation. Canoe/kayak/raft/boat/hike -- but whatever you do, GO. The natural beauty - mountains, valleys, glaciers, icebergs, or grizzlies/moose/caribou/seals/whales/eagles -- it's all there to be seen.
