  • Husky Hike & Homestead Tour
    Get out of the city and into the Alaskan wilderness with a "husky hike" - guided nature hike with your own Siberian Husky sled dog. After a brief tour of the homestead, we will visit the dog yard and you will meet your hiking partner, one of our friendly Siberian Husky sled dogs. You will learn to harness your husky, and then together we will embark on a nature walk through the old growth boreal forest that surrounds the homestead. This is hike is 3 miles round trip and crosses uneven, moderately steep terrain. We will point out wildflowers, trees, and animals on our walk up to the top of the ridge, where vast panoramic views of the Chatanika River Valley and the White Mountains await. We will sit on top of the ridge and enjoy a hot drink, home-baked treat, and the company of your sled dog partner before we descend down through the cranberry bushes and ferns back to the kennel. On this tour you will have the opportunity to learn about Siberian Huskies, the natural history of Alaska, sled dogs, the Iditarod Sled Dog Race (Lisbet is a 3-time finisher), and off-grid living. This tour is 2-3 hours total, from arrival to departure. Other things to note: Bring hiking shoes, light jacket in case of wind/rain, water bottle, sunscreen, and sunglasses. Be prepared to walk up and downhill on uneven terrain.

  • Extraordinary Wildlife Scenic Flight
    We will meet at my airplane and I will go over a safety orientation on the aircraft. I will show you how everything functions. My intercom is excellent, allowing for clear communications. I’ll also describe our intended flight path and prepare you for highlights you can anticipate and be prepared for; like a bear den in April or a baby caribou calf in May. Photographs taken from the airplane of wildlife are possible. However, I will not fly in a manner that may disturb them. Weather plays a critical role in every flight. If the weather is poor, we may not fly. Fortunately that does not happen very often. Give me a call and lets go flying! Other things to note I am available to fly at any time during the day between 7am and 8pm. The $75.00 flight is for 15 minutes. Other options include a half hour flight for $150 and a full hour flight for $250.00

  • Brie's Botanical Garden Tours
    The walking tour will start with a brief wildlife safety talk. Please note that bears can be in the area, both inside and outside the fenced area. Next, I will highlight the entry beds and we will work our way up to the front gate. Once inside the fence and plaza area we will stop to talk about the history of ABG including dedicated volunteers and staff that helped transform ABG over the last 34 years. We will follow the half mile paved loop around to the several perennial gardens, research plot and outdoor classroom. The tour will end with the newest addition, the greenhouse, then we will exit through the nursery & gift shop. Please note that the season and weather will ultimately determine the plants that we see. April-mid May can be early for some plants and the gardens might be muddy and or slushy. Peonies are usually in full bloom from mid June to mid July. Mid September might be a little late for some plants, it can be rainy and cool. Tours in Spring, Summer & Fall will cover the history of the garden, identify available plants, wildlife, trees and also general local information. You will leave with new found knowledge about some of the hardy plants in Alaska. All guests will be required to follow any addition regulations from ABG at the time of your tour. All tours are subject to operating hours of the Alaska Botanical Garden and may be canceled with limited notice.

Your guide to Alaska

Welcome to Alaska

Soaring snow-covered mountain ranges, stark tundras, towering glaciers, and sprawling forests all collide within the boundaries of Alaska, where you’ll find the highest peak in North America and eight national parks. The state’s vast wilderness is home to grizzly bears, wolves, and moose, as well as off-the-gridders happy to trade the comforts of urban living for the austere beauty of Alaska’s rugged landscape. The ways you can experience this place are myriad: slice through the frontier on a glass-domed train, hitch a ride on a dog sled, or navigate the legendarily scenic Alaska Highway. Even the sun shines differently here. Thanks to Alaska’s location in the top half of the Northern Hemisphere, long summer days culminate in the summer solstice, during which it stays light for nearly 24 hours a day, before transitioning to the dark winter months. These unique features elevate Alaska to a singular state with stellar natural beauty.


How do I get around Alaska?

Alaska’s major airports are Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC), Fairbanks International Airport (FAI), and Juneau International Airport (JUN). Located in Alaska’s largest city, ANC is the most trafficked option. Smaller airports service communities throughout Alaska, and can be a convenient way to get around the largest state in the U.S. Once you’re on the ground, there are several transportation options, including driving, rail travel, and motorcoaches. The Alaska Maritime Highway System is a network of ferries that connects 35 communities and accommodates cars and motorhomes.


When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Alaska?

Alaska's vast geographical footprint means you can expect a range of weather throughout the state in any season, and timing your visit depends on what activities you want to optimize for. Summers in Alaska can be quite warm, particularly in the interior, and you can expect long, sunny days that make for great hiking. Winters are chilly, dark, and snowy — depending on where you are going, the temperatures can dip well below freezing. This season is ideal for skiing, snowmobiling, and all other kinds of cold weather fun, as well as spotting the Northern Lights. The shoulder seasons bring a mix of cold and warm weather as well as their own enticements, such as sightings of migratory whales and baby animals in the spring and changing leaves in the fall.


What are the top things to do in Alaska?

Glacier Hopping

Alaska affords travelers many opportunities to get up close and personal with staggeringly large ice formations. In Juneau you can watch brown bears munch on salmon from the safe distance of a viewing platform on the 13-mile-long Mendenhall Glacier. Explore dazzling ice caves — with a seasoned guide — on the Hubbard Glacier near Yakutat, which towers 350 feet above the sealine. A kayak or boat is the preferred way to experience the Columbia Glacier in Valdez, which is one of the fastest moving in the world.

Northern Lights

Alaska is one of the best places to see this fantastic atmospheric phenomenon that produces spectacularly colorful, undulating light displays in the night sky. August through April are prime viewing months, and you have your choice of experiences, such as peeping them from a natural hot spring.

Denali National Park

At more than 20,300 feet high, this park’s namesake peak draws mountaineers in droves but is hardly the only attraction here. The national park’s six million acres encompass glaciers, rivers, and valleys accessed by a single road and are home to the Big Five mammals: moose, caribou, wolves, grizzly bears, and Dall sheep, famous for their extravagantly curved horns.
