As many of you know the last few years I have been developing a new course in Alaska, thankfully after many years of hard work I have managed to get one up and running. So why did I bother, I mean it’s not like there are 100’s of other courses and workshops already there fighting for your dollars (or currency from where ever you are from).
That is true the competition in Alaska is strong, many tour operators trading on their previous achievements to promote their tours. Various documentary makers also have tours that give you an idea of where they shoot. Why wouldn’t you take these tours ? They sound great, well not many have commercial access to Katmai National Park which requires a permit to even take a boat into so that was important for us to get that license to create the tour.
During my research I found there to be a few type of tours, the hurried place to place 10 day tour where you do not get a chance to take much in other than hey look there are some animals and move onto the next location; others are stay in one place for 3 days and move on again to a less interesting place normally because its cheaper for the tour operator.
