REVIEWS

We are so grateful for the careful planning and ideal itinerary for our vacation. We loved every hotel or mountain cabin we stayed in, the boat ride through the Seward fjords, Alaska Railroad, 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.

Wayne Michigan, United States

Excellent trip. Well planned out. We were able to get all our additional destinations accommodated.

Paul Williams Canada

Just a note to tell you how much we enjoyed our unexpected trip. Thank you for organising this so quickly for us to fill in the extra 5 days after the cruise was terminated.Everything went so smoothly, and we were on everyone's' 'list' on all the transfers. The best part was the small plane flight back from Denali- it was brilliant.The cruises on the Fiords were also a highlight. So, thanks again. We are thinking of coming back to view the Northern Lights at Fairbanks and also the start of the Iditarod.

Lynne Sydney, Australia

Not being able to travel Internationally we decided on Alaska for our summer vacation, We worked with Samantha who has been to Alaska many times and recommended the perfect itinerary for us. This trip has made us want to go back to Alaska to experience more - next time will be another luxury remote lodge.
