Alaska is one of the few remaining wild places where you can experience the power and glory of nature, pristine and untouched. No wilderness on earth compares to its splendor – where caribou thunder across the tundra, wildflowers carpet the landscape, whales leap from oceans teeming with fish, the sound of calving glaciers explodes in the wilderness, bears feed freely on abundant salmon, and the sun never sets. Our trips provide an intimate experience: each day in the wilderness gives you another chance to be part of something bigger than us all. You’ll come home with your own special moments you’ll never forget, and will also return feeling fit, energized, and revitalized.
Alaska Discovery was founded in 1972 on the premise that the very best way to protect Alaska’s fragile wilderness is to immerse people in its natural beauty, instilling a passion for America’s last frontier. Since then, we’ve become Alaska’s premier wilderness guiding company, leading thousands of visitors on unique adventures throughout the state. Today, as part of Mountain Travel Sobek, our commitment to guiding adventures in Alaska, as well as to preserving its wilderness, is even stronger.
Our permits in Alaska’s finest wilderness areas give you greater access than any other company. In addition to holding one of very few permits to guide overnight sea kayaking expeditions in Glacier Bay National Park we are also one of the few companies permitted to operate in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, and Kluane/Wrangell-St. Elias/Tatshenshini-Alsek World Heritage Site.
