There are very few Alaskans who aren’t explorers in their own right. When you come to visit this awe-inspiring and majestic land, you’ll see what we mean. It’s hard to to be here without submitting to the call of the wilderness, even if just for a brisk walk or hike…the need to explore is in each of us.

At Explore Tours, the Alaska spirit is strong! We love this place and get excited at each opportunity to plan a unique and customized Alaska adventure for our visitors!

Being Alaska Explorers ourselves, we have the planning tools, local relationships and good old fashioned know-how to give you peace of mind before and during your adventure. We know the roads, schedules, accessibility, best photo ops, and hidden gems. We'll tell you what to bring, what to expect, and how to get there. Working with you and understanding your personal style and budget, we can help pair you with the right activities, lodging and even offer great local dining tips!

We’ve seen this state grow in our more than 25 years of business, and we’ve grown with it planning customized experiences with new ways to explore, better access to all corners of the state, plus better technology and communication to keep your adventures exciting, but safe.

Awesome tour! And more awesome tour guides! My friend and I gave them the exact activities we wanted to do in Alaska, and the people of Explore Tours were able to put everything we wanted (and more) into one 5 day itinerary! It was great!

Jocelyn at Explore Tours put together an itinerary that was trouble-free, took account of our requests, was varied and, dare I say it, exciting. We toured by small plane, float plane, dome train and bus, to explore the interior of Alaska. ( We cruised the Inside Passage by small boat with Alaskan Dream Cruises, which we booked separately). Jocelyn was... More

I have used Explore Tours three times now and have always had a great experience. Their friendliness, helpfulness, and patience is exceptional. My most recent contact there, Kami Karp, was very responsive and extremely kind. I highly recommend Explore Tours to anyone thinking about planning a trip to the last frontier.

Explore Tours did a super job coordinating at Alaska vacation. The excursions they suggested were awesome and all details taken care of. We were very satisfied with the lodging from Fairbanks, to Denali, Anchorage, Seward, and especially Homer. We would definitely use Explore Tours again.

We loved our trip to Alaska. We rented a car in Anchorage and drove around the southeastern part of Alaska. We stayed in Kantishna in Denali. It was wonderful! We stayed at Talkeetna Lodge and this was a very nice place to stay. Also we stayed in Chitina Hotel. There were small rooms, but it was a delightful little place.... More
