Private Denali Tours
Looking for a more intimate experience with just your family and friends? Want to focus on practicing some new photography techniques or improve on the basics? No problem! We’re happy to arrange private Denali photo tours for an exclusive experience you’ll never forget.
With a private photo tour on the boundary of Denali National Park and on the Denali Highway (known as one of the world’s most scenic highways by National Geographic Traveler), you can enjoy one of our five-star photography excursions for your own group. All makes and models of cameras are encouraged, smart phones too! The best camera is the one you’ve got and our guides can work with any camera you might have. This is a great option for drone photography because we can take you to places where drone flight is allowed and you’ll have plenty of time to get the shots you want.
A private tour also means you have the guide all to yourself for more personalized attention – meaning you’ll discover the best locations to shoot and what settings to use on your camera for breathtaking shots. Our guides, who love exploring and capturing the beauty of Alaska, will gladly share tips and tricks that you will be able to use for the remainder of your Alaskan vacation. Just let us know how we can create your dream Denali photography tour!
