"We have been guiding RV caravan tours since 2001."
Thank you for your interest in Adventure Treks the leading provider of RV caravans to Alaska and the Canadian Maritime Provinces.
In 1994, Betty (my wife) and I made our first RV trip to Alaska. We were overwhelmed by the beauty of the remote wilderness and have returned to Alaska every year since. We have enjoyed travel in Alaska so much, we decided to find a way to share our love for the northwest and RV travel with others. In 2001 we started Alaska RV Adventures (now called Adventure Treks) offering one tour a year. Since then we have grown, offering tours to the Canadian Maritime Provinces as well as 8 tours to Alaska. Over the years we have guided hundreds of satisfied guests.
I would like to take a little bit of your time and provide information about what we offer. It is a lot of information to digest. But, I am a firm believer in making informed decisions and want to provide you everything you need to assist you with your decision.
I am glad that you have decided to investigate RV caravans. It really is the best way to see unfamiliar territories and offers many benefits. First and foremost, RV caravans offer a level of safety that you can’t get while traveling alone. Our guides have traveled these roads many times and can alert you to road hazards ahead. The TailGunner, traveling as the last rig in the group, watches out for anyone that breaks down and provides roadside assistance. And, there is safety in numbers.
An added benefit to traveling with a caravan is the opportunity to build friendships with other like-minded RV travelers. Many of my guests have said that it is comforting to know they will see familiar faces at the campground each night and that they have built friendships on our tours that last many years. All of our guests have expressed a desire to maintain contact after their trip is over.
Needless to say, RV caravans provide you with a planned itinerary. My wife and I have used our traveling experiences to create an itinerary that provides you with the best-of-the-best. We know the best tours, the best places to visit, the best museums, shows and campgrounds. We select activities to immerse you in the local culture, natural surroundings and history. If you were traveling alone you might get lucky and choose to visit some of these places. But in the process, waste a lot of time at inferior campgrounds and ho-hum tours. Most people have a limited time and budget for vacations and want to make the most of their resources. Our guests have rated our tours as an “Outstanding Value” and said they would recommend us to their friends. I am so confident of our customer satisfaction; I am sharing with you a list of prior guests that you may contact.
Before deciding to form our company, my wife and I did a lot of research. We visited with a lot of people traveling with caravans to learn about what they liked and disliked. They liked the safety of traveling in a group but didn't want to be treated like “cattle”. They liked having a planned itinerary but wanted free time to use as they wished. They enjoyed traveling with like-minded people but wanted the freedom to be alone when they wanted. We listened a lot and decided that we could do it better than the big companies.
The larger companies maximize their profits by forcing their customers into large caravans (up to 40 rigs). Our caravans are limited to 15 rigs. Smaller caravans allow the guests to get to know each other in a smaller, more comfortable setting and allow our staff to get to know each guest on a first-name basis. Our smaller caravans provide many social opportunities to build friendships that will last. Our guests do not feel like they are “cattle”. We don’t dress you in company logo vests, jackets or hats. We don’t herd you from one place to the next. Our staff takes the time to get to know each guest by name. We treat you as individuals.
While we offer a fully planned itinerary that provides the best-of-the-best activities, we build-in a lot of free time.
Some of the larger companies plan their itineraries around activities that maximize their profits. They have large advertising budgets and the office staff to pay for. They herd you into tours, museums and shows that can be provided at the cheapest cost. They fill your days with ho-hum activities at little or no cost to them. They take you to shop at stores that provide kickbacks to them on every purchase you make. We don’t use those tactics. We plan our itinerary based on the fun, interesting, entertaining and educational activities my wife and I have experienced first-hand. We believe in growing our company based on providing value to our guests and devoting our efforts to satisfying our customers, key components in the success of our company.
I hope that after you read this material and compare what we offer, you will choose Adventure Treks. We pride ourselves on exceeding our customer’s expectations.
Don’t hesitate to call me if you have any questions. I look forward to meeting you on an upcoming tour
