How does it work?

My super power is asking the right questions to craft the perfect Alaska itinerary for you and your travel crew.

I'm a professional travel advisor and I lived in Alaska for seven years. These days I still work part time as an Alaska guide and spend several weeks a year in Alaska.

I know what's it's like to live and travel in Alaska as a local, a guide and a traveler- all over the state from the Ketchikan to Fairbanks and beyond.

"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."
