The best way to experience Alaska is getting off the beaten path.   99 percent of tourists who visit Alaska each summer, stay on the road system or ferry system and never get the chance to experience remote wilderness.  

It’s not a secret that the best fishing and the best wildlife viewing is away from the crowds.    Ouzel Expeditions can take you to those locations.   To give you that real Alaskan Experience

Our rafts are perfect for wildlife viewing, birding, photography, large groups, or  groups needs to haul lots of camera equipment.      Guides row you down river while you have your hands free to change lenses, take photos, or just sit back in our comfortable chairs and soak up the  views.

Alaska’s location also provides visitors with the best light show on the planet.  Between  September and lat April,  you have a chance to gaze up and watch color dancing across the night time sky.   We have seen the northern lights on our September fishing trips.


Our gear and camps are personally designed for Alaskan weather and remote river travel.  You can experience remote Alaska knowing you will stay dry and warm if weather goes bad.     Screen shot 2016-03-31 at 2.44.53 PM
