Have you dreamed of watching moose meandering in the streets of an Alaskan small town as you prepare to climb to the apex of the majestic mountain range surrounding Denali?

Are you looking for a rejuvenating escape where you can create lasting memories and seek meaningful connections with nature and wildlife?

Do you dream of amazing marine life encounters with whales breaching off the bow or wildlife encounters with moose and grizzly bears walking the streets?

Would you like to soar over Denali “The Great One” and experience optimal views of its stunning peaks and surrounding glaciers that provide breathtaking views of stunning scenery and vast wilderness of Denali National Park?

Have you imagined being mesmerized by the powerful and exhilarating sound of a massive glacier calving while watching as crumbling pieces of ice plummet into the ocean?

Have you dreamed of sailing narrow waterways to explore the rugged beauty of Alaska’s shoreline including epic glacier-viewing experiences and explore charming historic ports?-Do you desire to experience the Northern Lights while blanketed in darkness that lasts for 83 days before the first momentary stream of light makes its appearance?

As an Alaska Destination Specialist, Diane would love to help you plan the vacation of your dreams! What is on your dream list of exhilarating Alaskan experiences? Having visited Alaska more than 30 times, including a flight-seeing trip with K2 Aviation where the pilot flew above Denali National Park and between snowcapped peaks with glaciers below, there are few experiences which can compare. Diane says, “It was one of the most breath-taking and inspiring trips of my life. The scenery was incredible!” Were you aware that Denali creates its own climate at 20,320 ft. and weather can change in an instant?!

There are wide variety of experiences available in Alaska including: dog-sled rides, gold panning, whale watching, and fishing excursions, mountain climbing and hiking adventures, glaciers cruises, railways packages to Skagway, bear viewing at Katmai National Park and Preserve, or flights to the island of Kodiak where you can see the Alaskan brown bear which is the largest recognized subspecies of the brown bear, and one of the two largest bears alive today, the other being the polar bear. Cruising the Alaskan coast and adding a tour of the interior of Alaska has become the most popular way to see the Last Frontier. 

Whether you are looking for a pre-planned adventure or experiencing Alaska on your own terms, Diane would be thrilled to assist you with planning your idyllic Alaskan vacation! It has long been Diane’s philosophy that a vacation is an investment in memories to last a lifetime, so make your trip a fantastic one! It is Diane’s desire for you to come home challenged and changed by the places you have visited while bringing a piece home in your memories. CONTACT DIANE FOR A COMPLIMENTARY CONSULTATION!

Exceptional from beginning to end!
Diane was exceptional to work with from beginning to end. She made our honeymoon experience one of the easiest things that we had to take care of during the wedding planning process. Even when our flights were delayed due to circumstances outside of our control, Diane was available and ready to assist us!

Easy recommendation
We have not went on our cruise yet, however we have no worries about how it will go. Diane has been able to answer all our questions and guide us to booking our dream vacation to Alaska. She has been very patient, attentive and knowledgeable. We have tried previous travel agents closer to our area and were disappointed. Diane is extremely professional and knows her stuff. Thanks again Diane.
