"This was an absolutely amazing tour! Our group loved Sarah. She was so informative, and really patient with us. We could not have imagined a better experience."
"Dr Sarah is truly a local expert. We take our family every summer and can’t wait for another glacier adventure!"
"Thank you for all the guidance, support, and valuable information you shared with us."
This was the greatest tour I have ever been on. Your knowledge of glaciers was magnificent. You treated us wonderfully and especially helped me with my physical limitation attentively and with great ease. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my experience great.
This was much more than a glacier hike - it was a glaciology adventure!

Donating to Alaskan Charities
Your tour fees support Alaska
Dr. Sarah's Alaska Tours donates a portion of yearly profits to Alaskan charities. Society can be measured by how we treat the most vulnerable among us (children, elderly, animals, etc.). We love Alaska and believe in giving back to our home state. Donations this year will support a MatSu charity for families in need and a dog rescue group in Fairbanks (Arctic German Shepherd Rescue, FaceBook).
