Out in Alaska is here to help share the many wonders of the Last Frontier with all open-minded and adventureous travelers. We offer day adventures from Anchorage, luxurious cruises, comfortable tours, exciting adventure trips, and custom vacations (something for everyone!). Out in Alaska empowers you to get off the beaten path and experience the wilds of Alaska with knowledgeable, local guides!
Our philosophy is that to really experience the deeply sensuous power of the Last Frontier, you need to be out in the wilds of Alaska. What could be more luxurious than to be watching wildlife, surrounded by seemingly endless pristine mountains and water - breathing unpolluted air!
“unchain yourself” and make your trip an authentic Alaska experience by interacting with local Alaskans and locally owned and operated businesses.
With more than ten years of offering fun trips across Alaska in all months of the year and sharing this great state with thousands of people (including many locals), our experience and knowledge make us your best option for a fabulous Alaska tour or adventure (gay or not). Many other companies hire tour guides from "outside" (that's Alaska-speak for outside of Alaska). Our guides are fun and knowledgeable full-time Alaskans. Additionally, our guests are much more fun than your average tourists. We often find that other tour guides we meet on the road are jealous of the fun we are having with our great groups!
Commitment to sustainability
Our business is committed to preserving and protecting the dramatic, but fragile Alaskan ecosystems that we love sharing with visitors. We are fully committed to minimizing our carbon footprint and minimizing our environmental impacts (we teach and follow Leave No Trace principles while in the backcountry). We believe that by teaching our guests about Alaska wilderness, ecology, glaciers, and the visible effects of climate change, we can help encourage our guests to do more to protect wild areas that are essential to the health of our planet.
We offer five great ways to visit Alaska:
Cruises are the easiest, most popular, and most luxurious way to see Alaska.
We can book your family and friends group cruise and also book fabulous small boat cruises. Put our local expertise to work when planning and reserving your Alaska cruise. More info
Out in Alaska's Land Tours offer in depth exploration of Alaska's diverse coastal, alpine, and interior habitats.
Our comfortable Land Tours make it easy to explore Alaska and offer a much more in depth visit to Alaska than cruises (most Alaska cruise visitors want to return and see more of Alaska on land). Of course the Last Frontier is very wild and a bit rough around the edges. Accommodations tend towards basic, but comfortable while our fresh seafood, scenery, and wildlife are world-class! Adventurous travelers who are open to new and different experiences will love exploring Alaska on land. Typical group size is 5-10 fun travelers. More info
Out in Alaska's Adventure trips are the ultimate way to experience the sublime wilderness of the Last Frontier.

Although not for everyone, these camping based adventure expeditions are our signature Alaska experience. With our outdoor education background and equipment that we can provide you, we can take just about anyone out in the wilderness and show you the adventure of a lifetime! You need to be active, have a good attitude, and a sense of adventure, but no previous outdoor experience is required. Typical group size is 4-8 active travelers. More info
