Our Approach

Since 1995, KWG has been combining a high level of technical skill with unmatched knowledge of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park.

We are a small company, and we like it that way.

Similar to a boutique hotel, we are defined by our location, style and attention to detail. We operate solely in Wrangell-St. Elias; not only our home, but we believe it to be one of the best places to experience a unique combination of adventures in an unparalleled wilderness setting. We hire guides who are passionate, knowledgeable and who keep coming back year after year. Our attention to detail is possible because we specialize in custom trips and small ratios, have 60 years of combined local knowledge, and we love our job.

How much do we love our job? Well, we were guides before we were owners. Betsy, Monte and Jared met and guided for KWG for many many years before buying it in 2011. We know how amazing it is to share our favorite spots with visitors from around the world. We are also very, very good at logistics. Wrangell-St. Elias is a remote and wild area, we take pride in making sure you experience the wonders of it without worrying about the details.

We know coming to Alaska can be a trip of a lifetime. We pass on to our guides not only the knowledge and skills needed to facilitate each trip, but the importance of the overall experience.
