My husband and I had the best time with our guide. He was available to us for 3 1/2 full days. His knowledge of Alaska, including the history, the geology, the trees, berries, plants, flowers, animals, and the best "off the beaten path places to visit" is mind-boggling. He helped arrange dinners for us at places the locals like and we avoided all tourist traps. He was interested in what we wanted to do and catered everything to our level of ability to hike, climb, raft, canoeing, etc. He gave us the time to soak in the environment and never rushed us to move on to the "next thing". He encouraged us to appreciate and take in the awesome beauty of Alaska. If I could give Traverse Alaska 25 Stars (or higher), I would. If you are planning to visit Alaska, I strongly encourage you to use Traverse Alaska for one of the best experiences of your life. I know that some people may only want a half-day trip, but I strongly recommend at least one full day trip with them as you will see Alaska like no one else can show it to you. We had a picnic lunch on an Esker, talked a little, and then listened to the silence of being away from other people, traffic, etc. We heard the birds, the red squirrels, the wind, and soaked in nature. I could go on and on about how wonderful Traverse Alaska is, but I will stop for now. Feel free to ask me any questions.

We loved our time with Mollie and Alex!! They are a wealth of knowledge about Alaska and customized the trip to meet your needs! We had a full-day hike with Traverse, and we HIGHLY recommend to everyone in the Denali area. It’s a great way to learn about the Denali area as well as discover what it is like to live in the Denali area. Very personable and down to earth people! They gave great restaurant and activity recommendations.

We chose to do a private all day hike. We were here in mid May when things weren’t completely open yet. Our guide, Cyn, called us the day before to figure out exactly what we were hoping to get out of the day. She took us on an incredible hike! Always stopping when we needed a break, pointing out flowers and different plants, and giving us plenty of fun facts. We really set the pace and we only did what we were comfortable with. It was an amazing hike that we wouldn’t have felt comfortable doing on our own. It was definitely worth the money and I would recommend Traverse to any of my family and friends!

My wife and I had an excellent experience with Traverse Alaska. Our guide, Kierre, was knowledgable of the terrain and shared fun facts that made the backcountry so interesting. We felt this intro to backcountry hiking was a perfect start to our 3 week trip in Alaska because it gave us the confidence to hike and camp in the not-so-frontcountry parts of the Denali wilderness and the Kenai peninsula. Kierre also shared tons of amazing resources that helped us plan other parts of our trip. She even took pictures and shared them with us!

We didn't know exactly what to expect when we signed up for a family day hike with Traverse Alaska with Mollie Foster. It turned out to be a great idea. My wife and I have two boys (aged 11 and 13 at the time) who had a fair amount of backpacking experience (mostly in CA). The hike we did was an excellent way to orient ourselves to off trail hiking in Alaska and the surrounding Denali area. She gave us great insight on how to make our park experience in Denali better. The next day we enjoyed a family tundra nap off trail in Denali National Park. I highly recommend that you work with Traverse and have them take you hiking on your first day in the area. They have incredible knowledge and experience.
