Mission Statement

Provide a conduit for learning, understanding and grasping the importance and significance of pure wilderness.

Denali Trekking is dedicated to providing living and learning experiences while traveling in the mountains for developing a keen understanding and appreciation of the importance and significance of pristine wilderness.

We believe hiking and backpacking are the highest quality ways of exploring the land-based wilderness. It is promoting excellent health in mind and body through moderate exercise, a nutritious diet and a positive attitude. We emphasize respect and gratefulness. We feel very fortunate to live on the doorstep of pure wilderness.

Denali Trekking controls and monitors all our impacts; proving the highest degree of responsibility and genuine dedication in preserving this magnificent resource, the Alaskan wilderness.

What We Bring to the Table

Our team absolutely shines in the mountains. The Alaska wilderness has been our home. We have nested there; some for weeks at a time, others for months. All have become comfortable and competent in living with mountains, weather and winds. We are at home where no man lives.

Our guides and our staff enjoy sharing their knowledge and skills, stories and expertise. They thoroughly embrace being a part of making lifelong memorable experiences. Becoming friends with them after a few days hiking in the wilderness is a great gift and often the highlight of all your Alaskan adventures. I am very proud of my guides and the friendships we have built every year since 1984.
