This was one of the best vacation activities my husband and I have experienced. Even though the hike we chose demonstrated that we were not as fit as we thought we were, Damien was incredibly patient and accommodating. Her shared so much information with us and you could tell he really loved Alaska. The views we experienced were breathtaking. In addition to being a great host with amazing stories and experience, he provided us with great food too. He provided us with hard-boiled eggs from his chickens, honey from his bees, hot tea made right on the trails from items found in Alaskan nature… All in addition to more “traditional” items like sandwiches, trail mix, and cheese. With Damien’s knowledge and personality it would be hard to not feel instantly comfortable with him. What an amazing Alaskan experience! Experiencing something like this with a local is a truly unique experience!
