Bill and KathiWe are a husband and wife team with a lifetime of experience in the outdoors who specialize in our guest's safety, comfort and satisfaction. We operate out of Chickaloon, Alaska only an hour and a half by car from Anchorage, through the scenic Matanuska River Valley, we take you rafting on the Matanuska River and glacier hiking, mountain biking and backpacking in the Talkeetna Mountains, Kenai Peninsula, Chugach State Park or Denali State Park if you are on a limited time schedule. The Talkeetna Mountains offer a wonderful wilderness backcountry experience without an expensive bush flight. Whether you are in the Anchorage area or Matanuska Susitna Valley for a day trip or coming to Alaska for a multi-day wilderness expedition the wealth of tundra, rivers, mountains and glaciers, lakes, islands and coastline allow us to share special outdoor experiences with people from around the world.

Bill began his professional guiding career in 1979 working Bill for an outfitter in Pinedale, Wyoming. With the Wind River Range as his backyard he enjoyed exploring and sharing this piece of Rocky Mountain wilderness with his guests. Moving to Alaska in 1989, the size of his backyard and opportunities for exploration and guiding multiplied.He owned his sled dog business in Fairbanks for many years before moving to the South Central area.Multi day river floats on the Copper River, Yukon River, and others became highlights of the summer season. With a passion for winter Bill began skiing and skijoring on the hundreds of miles of trails north of Fairbanks, Alaska, where he owned Alaska Sled Dog Adventures for nine years. Days spent out on the trail with temperatures below -50 gave him the opportunity to learn not only how to survive these extremes but to be comfortable and enjoy the experience. In 1998 he competed in the 350 mile human powered ( bike, ski or foot) race on the Iditarod Trail and finished to McGrath. Bill has completed the race seven times and now also organizes it with his wife Kathi.

 

 

KathiKathi grew up in the foothills of the Alps in Germany. She first came to Alaska in 1996 on a backpacking trip. She came back several times falling deeper in love with Alaska every visit. In 2002 she received her resident alien status and moved to Alaska. She has been exploring and guiding with Bill since she arrived. Kathi finished the 350 mile race to McGrath tenth out of forty three racers and set a new female race record in 2005. She speaks English and German fluently and also speaks some French and Italian.
All of our leisure time is spent biking, hiking, rafting, kayaking, skiing or snowshoeing in Alaska, Yukon and Northwest Territories in Canada, the Southwest US or Europe, always looking for new places to share with guests. Our current winter passion is biking expeditions in the arctic with the Alaska made Fatbike. We bring our experience and love of the wilderness to share with guests on every guided trip and students of our winter schools. I specialize in teaching people about winter biking and women-only trips.
