Alaska Into the Wild
Alaska Photo Tour
Over the course of two weeks, this tour takes you to see selected Alaskan highlights. Impressive mountain scenery, vast glaciers, cascading waterfalls, and idyllic valleys await. In addition to photographing Alaska’s impressive landscapes, you will also capture a diverse range of wildlife: bears, moose, eagles, whales, caribou and many more.
This exclusive photo tour of Alaska cannot be compared to other Alaskan photo tours. We take you to unique locations, far from the tourist crowds. You will get the chance to take photos from bush planes, helicopters and boats, amongst others. Your main photographic guide, professional photographer Jeff Schultz, has lived in Alaska for over 35 years and has been the official photographer of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race since 1982. A second photo guide will also be on hand.
Partners who are not engaged in photography, will also enjoy this unique natural experience and the possibility to observe bears in their natural environment.
This Alaska Photo Tour offers extraordinary highlights!
- Brown bears in the remote natural paradise of Lake Clark National Park
- Four days in the heart of the Denali National Park, far from the hustle and bustle at the park’s entrance. Enjoy a unique experience in a small, remote lodge with unparalleled views.
- The impressive nature and wildlife of the tundra: bears, moose, caribou, Dall sheep and many more. And with a bit of luck, by mid-August the tundra will show a first glimpse of autumn colors.
- Exclusive boat tour (for our group only) in Prince William Sound with great photo opportunities: vast glaciers, picturesque mountain landscapes, bald eagles, whales, orcas, otters, seals, sea lions, puffins and many more
- Exclusive helicopter flight and landing at remote glacier-fed lake
- Helicopter and bush plane flights for spectacular aerial shots
- Typical, rustic Alaskan lodges – some of which are very remote, and thus close to photographic highlights
- Personal support and assistance from renowned Alaskan professional photographer: Jeff Schultz (Jeff will be supported by another photographic guide). Throughout the whole trip, we will be offering short, hands-on tutorials on relevant photographic topics.

What our clients say
Amazing Views is really worth of its name on this fantastic journey into the beauty and wilderness of Alaska! Starting with a variety of animals that we could observe, great landscapes and unique excursions...you went from one highlight to the next and when you thought: "More is not possible", the next highlight of the trip already came. Playing brown bear teenagers, who came a little bit closer, bald eagles in flight and very photogenic in the treetop, otters, seals, dolphins, whales, moose, foxes, caribous, black bears, beavers, puffins and much more we were allowed to admire and photograph in the animal kingdom. Among the landscapes, there were unique (early) morning moods, glaciers and lakes, foggy valleys and as a special gift, Mount Denali with all its splendour. And all this on land, on water and from the air. A memorable experience and a very special trip, with great people and the perfect organization and support by Thomas and Jeff! With Amazing Views anytime again. Thanks to the whole team!

Alaska had been in the back of my mind for many years because of its vast photographic possibilities. Finally it worked out and we experienced such a unforgettable journey of superlatives. During our various trips to USA and also Canada we were constantly accompanied by warning signs for moss crossing, but never got to see one. Jeff and Thomas, especially Pia, were finally able to fulfil our wish and we experienced a wonderful morning in a moose area near Anchorage and were able to take pictures of the animals at close range. An unforgettable experience that we will never forget. To go into all the other highlights would go beyond the scope here. We are grateful that we were able to experience all this at our age.
The Alaska Into the wild photo tour was fantastic. Bears, sea otters, moose, caribous and much more could be photographed at close range. The trip was not limited to wildlife and landscape photography was not neglected. Special thanks to Jeff Schultz. His knowledge, experience and helpfulness made the trip an unforgettable experience. I can only recommend this photo tour!
WOW! It was sensory overload and I'm still processing everything that I saw and experienced. I just finished doing a first look at my photos (over 12,000) and am re-living the exceptional tour. Accommodations, food, leadership and the weather (most of the time) were the best possible. So many bears and so close. Seeing all of Denali for several days was a minor miracle. Flying up to it is beyond words. How can I describe the thrill of the helicopter ride to the glaciers, the boat trip on Prince William Sound with all the wildlife we saw and its gorgeous scenery, Lake Clark with its many bears and their crazy behavior, Denali Camp with its pristine beauty, gourmet food, much wildlife and the crazy road getting there? And the group I was with became instant friends of mine who I already miss. It was a trip I'll remember the rest of my life. Thank you, Amazing Views!
Alaska - Into the wild was an unforgettable journey for me, even though I don't photograph at all. Highlights after highlights, breath-taking landscapes alternated with incredible animal encounters. We saw bears, moose, sea otters, porpoises, humpback whales....., some of them from close range. In addition, the organisation both before and on site was excellent, the accommodations were great and with Jeff Schultz we had a photographer at our side who was not only familiar with the area and always friendly and helpful, but also made many experiences possible for us through his knowledge and experience. Although I was a bit sceptical in advance if this trip is really recommendable for non-photographers, I did not regret my participation in the trip for a minute and I firmly believe that this was not my last trip with Amazing Views.

Alaska - Into the Wild was very much to our liking, it was a scenically and photographically varied trip. There is something for everyone, whether on land, from the air or on the water. Unbelievable landscapes, a fantastic sunrises and animal encounters (especially the bears) that you won't forget so quickly. Jeff Schultz is a wonderful photo travel companion; warm, calm, patient and always helpful. A really great person and perfect choice.
