Alaska Adventure Travel Partners
Our partner company, St. Elias Alpine Guides, co-exists with us at our base in McCarthy, Alaska. They offer historical tours, glacier hiking, ice climbing, hiking, backpacking, mountaineering and skiing trips for all ages and abilities. Professional, fun-loving guides and 40 years of experience in the Wrangell-St. Elias. You can book any of their trips through us and vice-versa. Join the St. Elias Guides/Copper Oar family for some Alaska fun!
Our partners down at Pangaea Adventures in Valdez specialize in the sea kayaking world. There is no better place to get in a kayak than Prince William Sound. They can take you out to paddle around icebergs at the Columbia Glacier or right up to the face of the Shoup Glacier. They also offer a short whitewater rafting trip in Keystone Canyon and Glacier Hikes and Ice Climbing on the Worthington Glacier (but let’s get this straight – rafting and glacier hiking in Wrangell-St. Elias is the superior experience!). Pangaea trips offer great wildlife opportunities, professional guides and some of our closest friends. Look ‘em up!
True experts and professionals in the Alaska bush flying world, we happily entrust the experience and lives of our guides and guests to the skilled hands of Wrangell Mountain Air pilots every day. They are some of the best of their trade, and do all our flying, from picking up our daily raft and flightsee trip on the gravel bars of the Chitina River, to dropping off heavy loads of supplies and guests to the start of our Nizina River Rafting and Hiking trip. We highly recommend that you give them a call for any bush Alaska flying needs.
If you decide that you’d like to travel around Alaska as part of a small group with experienced guides leading the way, give Get Up and Go a call. They are an Alaska based company that runs group tours as well as custom trips. Of course they always bring their groups to see us in McCarthy!
If you want someone to help put together all the pieces of your Alaska Vacation, including rental car, lodging and activities, Wigi at the Alaska Vacation Store is your man. Be sure to tell him you want to go rafting in McCarthy and you’ll end up on our doorstep!
Looking for the ultimate Alaska Bear-viewing experience? Michael and his crew at Alaska Bear Adventures, based out of Homer, will fly you into remote beaches teeming with grizzlies for professional and up-close viewing all summer long. If you’re going to the Kenai, give them a shout!
