Best of the West

I recently had the pleasure of doing the "Best of the West" through World Expeditions/ATW. I must commend to you the most excellent experience we had with our tour leader. He was exceptional in his attention to detail, his knowledge, his sense of humour and his thorough professionalism. Well done and thanks for a truely marvellous trip.

Denali Unexplored

We're excited about our new 7-day backpacking trip in Denali National Park. This is an amazing adventure on a 30+ mile circuit, through the biggest mountains in North America and the crown jewel of the National Park system, Mount McKinley (Denali). A stunning flight by float plane takes us into this vast wilderness. We'll enjoy superb tundra and glacier hiking, and unparalleled views of America's highest summit (you'll be only 15 miles from the 20,320 foot peak of Denali). Shouldering our own packs, this trip is both suitable for a new Alaska backpacker yet challenging enough for the seasoned wilderness traveller.
