Alaska Adventure Specialist

Skilak Lake

Tours of all lengths and formats are available in Alaska, from a week long backcountry adventure to a leisurely trip in a motorcoach to experience the Alaska Highway. Rail tours stretch from tidewater in Southcentral Alaska to the heart of the state’s Interior region, visiting state and national parks along the way. Day and multi-day cruises offer a quick glance of Alaska’s coast or the opportunity to immerse yourself in the marine environment.

For those interested in splitting the difference between active adventure and relaxed pampering, Alaska’s adventure companies offer some of the best compromises. After a day of hiking, rafting or kayaking, guides set up camp and prepare dinner while guests sit back and take in the stunning scenery. Whatever your speed, Alaska has something to offer.

Explore the Wilderness You can experience true Alaska wilderness during the day - and sleep in a warm comfortable bed at night. Guided trips and tours take you to a variety of remote (and not-so-remote) places, where you can enjoy almost any outdoor interest, from kayaking and river rafting, to fly fishing and bear watching.

Get Up Close with Glaciers Come see the truly ancient, enormous rivers of ice that sculpted Alaska's mountains and calving icebergs that hit the ocean with thunderous roars.

Watch the Wildlife If you want to see wildlife, Alaska is the place to visit. Bald eagles gather by the hundreds. Moose cause traffic jams. Wild Dall sheep skip along roadside cliffs.

Small ship tours and day cruises are a popular way to explore Alaska’s oceans and rivers in a limited time frame, with maximum aesthetics. Cruise the protected waters of the Inside Passage, the glacier-studded bays of Prince William Sound or the coastline of Southcentral and Southwest Alaska, where wildlife abounds. Brown and black bears, puffins and hundreds of other sea bird species, sea lions, sea otters, whales, moose, eagles, glaciers, and majestic mountains are all common sights while sailing in the summer months.

Your Alaska Adventure can take you in many directions so you may need to make multiple visits to truly experience all Alaska has to offer. Let me help with the planning and share my adventures with YOU.

Italy & Turks and Caico

Reviewed By Joyce - Blaine, MN | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
I found working with Tricia to be very knowledgeable and very professional of the different travel areas. She gets everything set up for you ahead of time, I really like having her set up trips for me. Everything was so smoothly when I took a trip to Italy with having skip the line tickets for the bigger sites to see. And train tickets. It helps too that she has traveled herself to many areas so has a lot of input on what sites to see in certain places. Very nice and friendly person and helpful.

Don't worry, Be Happy Vacation

Reviewed By T. Skogquist - Bethel, MN | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
I have worked with Tricia for many years to plan and book our vacations. Tricia is an amazing travel agent!!! Tricia has never let us Riviera Maya we had a family emergency and needed to make arrangements to come home earlier than expected. On top of the sudden turn of events, we had trouble with our cell service and I was unable to make any outgoing calls to the airlines. This added to our frustrations, however I was able to email Tricia over the weekend and she worked diligently to get our travel arrangements made without added expense. I trusted her and knew she would take the necessary stress away from us and handled everything going forward.

Tricia is always involved when we are thinking of booking a vacation. I don't know what we would do without her!!!
