No other adventure company IN THE WORLD offers this service!!!!!!!
As the owner of a small business I know how important it is to provide something unique and special for my guests; something above and beyond, something that shows commitment to their success, with a hug. If you throw in, or out, a delicious treat; you’ve hit a Home Run, Babe Ruth. You have also separated yourself from the competition and created a class of your own!
Midway through your wilderness adventure, early in the morning, the feint drone of a small airplane will be heard intruding on the silent soundscape. This welcome visitor is right on time and delivering warm cinnamon rolls, fresh baked from the Roadhouse ovens in Talkeetna……or he bakes his own!
Billy developed and perfected this courtesy while flying backcountry hikers and adventurers in the 80’s. There was little in the way of communication once you were “wild”. Progress checks were an important safety feature and a wonderful reconnection with the outside world. Today, we have a multitude of options for communication, but, this extraordinary personal touch, an airdrop to every camp, is unprecedented in the modern world of wilderness adventures.
Whether you receive fresh baked cinnamon rolls or home-made wild blueberry brownies, every guest is delighted with this extra special gift!
I see a hundred smiles from my cockpit every summer!
From trip planning to route planning and execution, our priority is for you to gain or improve skills and confidence in relying on yourself; no matter where your wandering may take you.
Our team at Denali Trekking Company is a well-oiled machine.
We make great adventures and great memories!
The biggest benefit you get from Denali Trekking Company is a dozen new friends!
