Responsible tourism: Denali National Park vacation in Alaska


Alaska is one of the last places in this world with pristine and untouched wilderness. It goes without saying that we recycle to local possibilities and leave our campsites exactly as we found them. Being out in the wilderness also means teaching our guests how to interact with wildife safely. We make sure to not put wild animals in any danger through frequent interaction with humans. For bears this means for example to never leave any food or trash open or unlocked in our camps to make sure these beautiful wild animals don't get used to different food sources other than what mother nature provides them.

Our Overland Vehicle is running carbon neutral. As much as we believe that the only right way is to save ressources and find ways to reduce CO2 emmissions we also think running our vehicle carbon neutral is at least a start: It is a necessary second-best solution for us as a small company. We decided to go with atmosfair, which is a climate protection organisation with a focus on travel. They actively protect the climate by compensating greenhouse gases through the use of renewable energies, among other activities. This means we are calculating the fuel consumption for a whole year. 3 liters of fuel equals 3 kg of CO2. For the amount of CO2 emissions we will pay atmosfair to compensate and reinvest in green energy projects.


We believe that traveling broadens your mind. Group travel allows you not only to encounter the culture of the places you are visiting it also allows you to interact with people from different countries learning about their living experiences. Being out in the nature and sleeping under the stars brings you freedom and may give you different perspectives and views on you life back home.

Being a small family run business, we pride ourselves on developing relationships with the locals, most notably the local suppliers. When we provide accommodations, or even when we go ice climbing, we do everything we can to work with small local businesses. Going shopping, we look for local farmersí markets to purchase local produce.
If we are providing accommodations, we work with people like Susie and Allen from Maclaren River Lodge who have been running a local business for over 20 years. The activities we provide through third party suppliers are with locals like glacier hikes with a small family run company like Elias Guides.
Whenever possible we include local festivals/concerts of Alaskan bands into our itinerary.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

So many, the beauty of Denali National Park, the remoteness and serenity of Maclaren River, the beauty of Valdez Bay and the fabulous team guides Natalie and Aaron bit if I must single out one experience it would be the visit to Kennecott in Wrangell/St. Elias National Park and the hike to and on the Root Glacier and the subsequent ice climbing. A fantastic time in an exquisite location .

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

In order to really enjoy this expedition to the fullest and to really capitalize on all the offerings ensure that you are physically fit.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Not really to any significant extent. Other than injecting money into the local economies by participating in the activities offered by local guiding/tour companies at each location there was not much else to recognize.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Overall, it was a fantastic trip and will be remembered fondly.
