Meet Your Guides

    In 2002 I started Expeditions Alaska offering guided backpacking, hiking trips, rafting and sea kayaking trips. I also started running photo tours around Alaska.

    A solo operation, I guided all the trips by myself. Small groups work well in the backcountry. The nature of those types of experiences forges strong relationships between the myself and the group, between group member and also between individuals and the place itself.

    We visit some truly astonishing places and people came to really value and enjoy those memorable experiences.

    Gradually things got busier and busier. In 2012 I started working with several local Alaska backpacking guides to help run trips when I was already booked and unavailable. The result is that I now have a few guides I work with. Some help out once a year, some guide all season long.

    These folks know their stuff. I mean, really know their stuff. Good people and I’m proud that they all want to work with me again. And again.

    Say G’day to a wonderful set of people.
