Look for loons and kingfishers on the lakes, moose and bears in the woods, and Denali on the horizon. This lush old-growth forest is alive with songbirds, wildflowers, berries, and mushrooms. Your local guide will tell you stories about wildlife encounters, life in Talkeetna, and how native people survived in this wild land. The fresh air, exercise, and healthy homemade snack will renew and invigorate you. This is a great trip in any weather.

This walking adventure/tour was one of the highlights of our inland enjoyment of Alaska. Howard, our guide, had a love and respect for the land that he so easily and naturally conveyed to us. His knowledge was shared so very comfortably that we left feeling enriched. We had fun, we laughed, and we departed all the better for our hike.
I just had to write you and tell you how much my husband and I enjoyed the Talkeetna Lake hike with our nature guide Julie. The lake was beautiful, the hike very relaxing, and getting to know Julie was very enlightening. Along with the flower and fauna, she shared a few of the challenges Alaskans have with daily life. I don't believe the hike would have been nearly as interesting if it wasn't for her kindness and her ability to share. If you see her, please tell her that Esther & AG from Charleston WV send regards.""Joelle was fabulous. Tour was wonderful. All of us loved it..
