Custom Trips – Backpacking & Multi-Sport Adventure Tours

Is there a special kind of Alaska adventure trip you have in mind? Do you have a group of family, friends or colleagues that want to design their own perfect trip? You’ve come to the right place.

Each year, more than half our trips are designed and executed as a customized experience for a group of participants. Sometimes the custom trips just means running one of our classic expeditions as a private trip on dates of your choosing. Other times that means that we tailor a multi-week, multi-sport package just for you, with transportation, lodging and activities all included so you don’t have to worry about a thing. Whatever it is you are looking for, we can make custom trips happen!

All of the spectacular trips listed in this website can be run as your own private Alaska adventure trip provided group size minimums or the financial equivalent are met. We can tweak any of the itineraries to meet your needs and desires or just start from scratch with your ideas and our Alaska expertise.

Please contact us with your desires. We look forward to helping you plan and execute your dream Alaska adventure vacation!
