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 Alaska.  

It’s no 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 you’ve been dreaming of.

Our rafts are perfect for fishing. We have one fisherman in the front and one in the back. The wildlife viewing, birding, photography, is excellent on our trips.      Guides row you down river while you have your hands free to fish, take pictures or just  to just sit back and soak up the  views.

Ouzel has 40 years of river experience in Alaska.   We have floated through typhoons with 100 plus winds in Kamchatka, snow storms in the Arctic,  50 year floods, and   clients still leave with a smile on their face and great story to tell.   As long as you stay warm and dry and let our guides keep you safe, we know you will have a trip of a lifetime.
