Alaska Vacation Packages

Adventure and Alaska are synonymous. Where else can you hike an ice-age glacier, fly over the wilderness in a bush plane, or watch a massive brown bear snag a salmon from a waterfall? I specialize in personalizing Alaska vacation packages for my couples who want to get back to nature.

Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall, Alaska has so many wonderful things to see & do. Many rivers, lakes, and protected coastal waters offer a range of adventures. Whitewater rafting, kayaking through fields of icebergs and glacier-carved fjords or snorkeling near the coast.

It is perfect for couples looking for a more personal connection with nature, culture, and the wilderness. If you want to experience the Northern Lights, the best time to visit is from late August through April. The two best locations to view this amazing sight is in Fairbanks and Anchorage.

Enjoy a stay at a Fairbanks resort with their own hot springs where you can soak, and therefore watch the colors of the sky change and dance above you. If you visit in the winter months, take a dog sled adventure, snow mobile trek, or try your hand at ice fishing and don’t forget to bring your electric blue valdez snow jacket. Enjoy a visit to the reindeer ranch, and see the beautiful sculptures at the ice museum.  Alaska is the perfect place for couples who want to experience the great outdoors.
