• Are you overwhelmed with planning your Alaska trip?
  • Do you want destinations and activities that are fully customized to the dreams and needs of your crew?
  • Do you want to feel confident that you have the perfect itinerary and activities for your crew?
  • Not sure whether see Alaska by cruise ship, by riding the rails on the Alaska Railroad, self driving itinerary, or some combination?

How does it work?

My super power is asking the right questions to craft the perfect itinerary for you and your travel crew to ensure the trip of a lifetime.

In addition to being a professional travel advisor, I lived in Alaska for seven years and I still spend several weeks each year working as an Alaska guide. I know what's it's like to live and travel in Alaska as a local, a guide AND a visitor - all over the state from the Inside Passage to Fairbanks.


Book one of my personal planning sessions

This is how I start with each client. In our 30 minute session on zoom, we'll talk about the basics and then you can take my advice and do whatever you like with it, no strings attached! Book a time here ($47 which goes to the cost of your itinerary if you decide to book one).


Optional: Alaska Planning Questionnaire

You can share what you know about your Alaska trip so far with me here, or we can discuss this during the planning session.


Decide if you'd like an itinerary or cruise quote

If you'd like to have me build a full custom itinerary for you and your travel crew, let me know and we'll arrange payment (pricing below).

If you'd like to have me do a cruise quote for you, I will provide a cruise quote for you after our session for no additional cost.


Get a fully customized Alaska Itinerary or cruise or cruisetour quote

Within a week I will get a full draft itinerary to you for your initial review. We can talk by phone or zoom to go over it if you like. Let me know if you'd like any changes or revisions.

For cruise and cruisetour quotes, I will get those back to you within one day.


Book your Alaska Trip!

Once you get your final customized Alaska itinerary from me complete with a step by step packing list, you'll know exactly what to book and in what order. Most people can complete this in less than an hour.

If you decide on an Alaska cruise or cruisetour booked through the cruiseline, I can book your Alaska vacation for you which has no additional cost. I'll never pressure you to book with me.

That's it! You're ready for your Alaska Adventure!

"Though we are experienced travelers and trip planners, we were overwhelmed trying to figure out our trip to Alaska. Jennie was so knowledgeable and helpful. Before she made any suggestions, she she talked with us to understand what we were hoping for and what kind of travelers we are. She figured out an itinerary that fit us perfectly. Once we got to Alaska, we discovered that Jennie's itinerary for us was perfect."

Do you book for me?

As a travel advisor, I book cruises and tours through the cruise lines and receive a commission.

For custom itineraries, you pay me to build the itinerary but I do NOT book for you or receive commissions.

Do you offer itineraries that are not customized for a lower price? 

Yes! Find them all here.

If you're looking to experience the highlights with my expert advice but don't need customization from me, this is for you!

What if I already started planning?

I can help you no matter where you are in the process! If you've already committed to part of your trip, I'll work that into your custom itinerary.

What if I just have a few questions?

Are you feeling confident about your trip but would love to run a few questions by an expert? I do that too! Book a 30 minute session here.
