We Wrote the Book on Wrangell-St. Elias
Nobody knows the backcountry of Wrangell-St. Elias better than Trek Alaska. Owner Greg Fensterman wrote the definitive guidebook to the park, published by Falcon Guides, one of the premier publishers of hiking guides in the world.

Leadership You Can Trust
Greg blew away my expectations. There was not a moment that I was ever uncomfortable with his leadership. You haven't walked the world until you've trekked the wilderness of the Wrangell-St. Elias Mountains.

For Our Guides, It’s All About You.
Ryan [our guide] was fantastic, we really got along with him. He set a really comfortable pace and seemed to know a lot about the area and terrain. The food was great and Ryan was quite the chef.

Sharpen Old Skills - Learn New Ones
I had a fantastic time! The guides were extremely helpful in learning the essential skills needed on the trip. I really liked the fact that the guides took the time to answer my map questions. The guide's knowledge of the area is second to none.

Our Guests Say it’s the Trip of a Lifetime
We had such an amazing time in Alaska thanks to you and it was certainly the highlight of our holiday around the states! We have been annoying our friends with countless stories and photo viewing sessions. Hopefully we'll see you again sooner rather than later!

Guided Alaska Hiking and Backpacking Adventures - McCarthy Alaska

Guided Wilderness Trekking

Trek Alaska provides guided backpacking adventures ranging from 3-9 days and from easier to very challenging. Most of our trips are in Alaska's Wrangell-St. Elias National Park with treks originating out of McCarthy. But we also do treks in Lake Clark and Gates of the Arctic National Parks.

Regardless of your level of experience or the degree of challenge desires, we have a trip that will fit you perfectly.

For a quick scan of the range of our treks take a look at our Treks Overview page.

We Wrote the Book…

Owner Greg Fensterman is the author of Hiking Alaska’s Wrangell-St. Elias National Park published by Falcon Guides. So when we say that nobody has a more in-depth knowledge of the backcountry of Wrangell-St. Elias it’s not an empty boast. Oh… and the book doesn’t give away all the park’s secrets by a long shot. We know lots of great spots not included. We have been taking people into the deep backcountry for 15 years so we know this country like nobody else.

Small Group Size

Is travelling the backcountry with a group of ten or more your idea of personal attention? Ours neither.

We offer a more intimate wilderness experience than the typical large tour groups can provide. Our backpacking groups are small and the individual attention begins with your first contact with us. We don’t just take you on cookie cutter trips but customize to your interests and ability. Most groups are composed of 4-5 participants and a guide. This allows time for map and compass tutorials, stopping where we want, when we want, taking photos and pretty much whatever we feel like doing.
