Curated local travel excursions are all the rage these days, and why not? If you are taking the time (and expense) to go somewhere special, you want to experience something unforgettable. When you think about Alaska, the sky is the limit (literally!) when it comes to the excitement you’ll find with explorers in mind. The Last Frontier is a first-rate spot for every outdoor enthusiast.

At Pearson’s Pond Luxury Inn and Adventure Spa in Juneau, innkeeper Maryann Ray helps visitors make the most of their trips with Custom Alaska Itineraries. Most guests stay at least two weeks to truly enjoy an authentic experience in the capital city, which features everything the state has to offer: glaciers, whales, bears, eagles, dog mushing, fishing, sightseeing, hiking, culture and the most spectacular scenery anywhere – and all of it is within minutes of this luxury inn.
“Most people call about it, and then have us build a custom itinerary for them that takes into consideration how much time they have and what things they especially want to do and see,” reveals Maryann, “We only use the top tour operators, so our feedback on the excursions is always great! I want my guests and travel clients to be happy, so I am very careful to be sure they understand what each trip is about and can make an informed decision on which activities are for them.” The excursion website – www.alaskaadventuresjuneau.com – has a wealth of information on activities, trails, packages and weddings.

And if the images in this blog post don’t inspire some serious envy, check out this video taken by a guest on a whale watch last year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-mSELmsRzc. If for some reason Alaska wasn’t on your Bucket List before, we’re pretty sure you’ll want to add it right after you’re done reading this.
