Kenai Fjords & Denali Adventure - August 2023

Like Summer Camp for Grownups!

"The Kenai Fjords & Denali Adventure has an excellent mix of activities (hiking, rafting, kayaking, wildlife viewing). Our friendly and knowledgeable guides Jessi and Liz took care of all the planning, logistics, toting luggage, and other headachy parts of travel so our small group (initially strangers, now friends) just could focus on enjoying the day.

Being able to unplug from my computer and get into the great wilds of Alaska was so refreshing. The wildlife was amazing - we saw caribou, bears, ptarmigan, eagles, spawning salmon, and more (including a super pod of 100 orcas!). We tasted wild blueberries and salmon berries and saw the beautiful subarctic climates - marshes to black spruce forests to glacial fields.

Our guides were excellent planners and cheerfully answered the many questions from the group about all things Alaska. They were able to provide meal options to those of us with dietary issues, and the food was all plentiful and tasty.

The smaller group format was very comfortable. It was a personalized experience instead of the cruise ship tourists I saw in a couple locations who always traveled in huge busses and just seemed like names on a spreadsheet to…

"Amazing trip in Alaska in the summer 2023! Our guides Jessi and Liz were great, super attentive to all our needs.
Right balance between activities, stretching us outside of our comfort zone while maintaining a vacation spirit.
We were extremely lucky with the weather and able to see a lot of wildlife. The dynamic of the group was perfect and we had a lot of fun.
Really recommend it!!

Great adventure to the Northern Frontier!

"What a beautiful and amazing adventure to Alaska's National Parks! We had the best time exploring Resurrection Bay, rafting, hiking, kayaking and flightseeing over Denali (Mount McKinley) and landing on a glacier! Oh and those grizzlies and caribou and killer whales and puffin were really cool, not to mention the red sockeye salmon. We learned a lot by exploring a lot. Great guides and smooth following itinerary!

Trip Exceeded Expectations

"Liz and Jessi were terrific, competent, knowledgeable guides that made my trip to Alaska unforgettable. The itinerary was perfect - the strenuous hikes were sprinkled among more chill days, so nothing felt overwhelming or unsafe. The kayaking and rafting were a nice contrast to the spectacular hikes. We were fortunate to see a lot of wildlife - eagles, bears, caribou, a moose, ground squirrels, ptarmigans, and more. I highly recommend this trip with Austin Adventures!

Justin and Olivia were wonderful!

"My husband and I are both in our 60’s, and we just had an amazing trip with Olivia and Justin. They each took turns with leading, driving, and guiding us on numerous adventures. We took 4 hikes—approximately 9, 7, 3.5, and 3 miles long. Three of the four hikes included rain, but we still had a great time! We kayaked across a beautiful lake that was mostly empty, except for the salmon, and a few other kayakers. We went on a raft trip and shared the space with countless salmon and 25 eagles! We took a ship out into the ocean near Kenai Fjords and saw puffins, sea otters, Stellar sea lions, kittiwakes, a mountain goat, cormorants, orcas, and humpback whales. There were also amazing glaciers calving, and lots of mini icebergs. Yes, it was hard work at times, but the feeling of completing hard things is worth it! And we took breaks to catch our breath and take photos. They kept us fed and there were snacks available at all times in the car. It was an amazing trip!

A trip of a Lifetime

"What a beautiful trip- Alaska has been on my bucket list for years. The variety of activities we enjoyed along our journey was truly amazing. The hiking challenged me on a personal level, but that was what my goal was. I loved kayaking so much, and the rafting trip was exceptional. Liz and Jessi truly went out of their way to make us feel safe at all times as well as encouraged us through our journey. I can honestly say I would not have encountered a polar plunge on my own, let alone 3 polar plunges. Liz and Jessi had a gentle persuasion in challenging ourselves both on the hiking trails and our extra-curricular activities. Their personalities were so fun and they worked well together. Both of them were so professional. I appreciate all that they did to make this a trip of a lifetime for me!!

Kenai Fjords & Denali Adventure - July 2023

Two primary ingredients to a Fantastic Trip to Alaska

"A company with years of experience and commitment in designing and delivering an adventure with lots of variety in activities.
- whale watching (the likes of which we and the captain had never seen before), rafting down a beautiful river with many eagle sightings, hiking through beautiful forests with amazing views, serene kayaking on a beautiful lake, a safe view of a grizzly mama bear with her three cubs, and an awe inspiring flight around Denali.
Two exceptional guides who "deliver the goods" for the group of travelers. Justin and David left little to chance in making sure that we enjoyed sights, challenged ourselves with hikes and other adventures, learning much about the region, wildlife, and history of Alaska and most of all - had a great experience. Their choice of restaurants and provisioners allowed us to interact with locals and appreciate what it was like to live in a region so different from our own. Our guides looked out for our safety and even had back up plans when a power outage threatened to close our dinner choice. They were creative in making sure that our experience resonated with each…

Phenomenal 8 Day Tour of Alaska

"My family had the pleasure of experiencing the 8 day tour of Alaska which included Denali National Park. The trip organization was excellent, the sites and activities were fantastic, and our guides - Justin, Liz, and David were phenomenal! Our group was aged between 20's-80; so there were different levels of activity capability. Our patient and engaging guides helped everyone feel confident in their achievements at any level. The scheduled activities were top grade, and we were able to experience and see Alaska at its best!
We were fortunate to have excellent weather which improved the views. We were very impressed with the silver platter and red carpet treatment from Austin Adventures. We were 6 of a large group of 18; and yet Justin, Liz, and David took the time to get to know each one of us and pulled all of us together as a travel family. We cannot thank them enough for the excellent adventure in "America's Last Frontier" and giving my family new knowledge, appreciation, and wonderful memories of the great state of Alaska!!

Incredible Alaska.

"It sounds silly, but I had no idea that Alaska would be so beautiful. I kept forgetting how splendid it was, and then I would look up suddenly and see the snow covered mountains off in the distance and marvel again at what a great place I’d come to. The guides (Jessie, Steve and Olivia) were phenomenal. I could never do that job. They always had a smile on their face and their enthusiasm was contagious. The weather did not always cooperate but the benefit of being with the group was we got up and did the activities anyway. Afterwards, we were glad we did. We saw humpback whales bubble netting, saw a bear in a tree, saw a sea otter with a baby on her belly and had some splendid bike rides and hikes. All and all I am very glad I went to Alaska with the wonderful people in my group.

Unforgettable Trip to Kenai Fjords!

"This was my first Austin Adventure and it did not disappoint! The train to Seward with Gold Star service was the perfect way to begin this journey. The ride was so scenic and amazing. We saw a bear a tree, a moose and bald eagles! The hikes were challenging at times but so worth it to see the ice fields and bay. Kayaking in the bay was so peaceful and we saw sea otters swimming around too! The wilderness cruise was a fantastic experience and we were lucky enough to witness humpback whales using the bubble netting technique to feed several times. The glacier margaritas was a nice touch to end the cruise. Biking the various trails was so scenic. Since it was my first time on a bike ride since I was a kid, it was a bit hard but I pushed through and it was soooo worth it! Great way to see Alaska and all its beauty. Our guides (Jessi, Steve & Olivia) were incredible! They took us to delicious local cafes/restaurants, took care of every little detail and were so knowledgeable and friendly.

Everyone should put Alaska on their bucket list.
The scenery is beautiful, the air is clean, there is so much for everyone of all ages to do.
Austin Adventures took us to places we never would have gone.

No matter where you are, you have these amazing, breathtaking views everywhere. Our Austin guides were simply amazing. So knowledgeable about the locale and always so accommodating. It was so great to see guides we have been with on previous Austin trips, that was a real treat. Shout out to Olivia and Jesse, who are awesome and so nice to meet Steve and thank him for his patience and good humor. Kenai Fjords was our 5th trip with Austin and we are looking forward to the next one (already booked)!

Our First trip to Alaska

"This trip exceeded our expectations. Our guides, Justin and Liz went over the top to make sure the entire group has a wonderful experience.
When rain caused us unable to to take the flight to see Denali from the air they checked the weather and adjusted our plans for 8 of us to have the flight of a lifetime.
Every day was filled a new adventure on the water or hiking and some days both.
Both Justin and Liz both were knowledgeable and it was evidenced by their actions that they truly cared that each member of our group had their greatest Alaskan trip!! They worked really well together.
