This location hosts one of the highest concentrations of bald eagles on the planet. Carl is a great guide. His website provides... More

I'm just back from the bald eagles november photo trip with Carl and it was amazing. Thousands of eagles right here, posing for the camera, in the charming and quiet town of Haines. Carl was a wonderful guide and photography teacher. I learnt a lot about eagles, Alaska, and photography, notably improving my skills and knowledge of my instruments. I... More

Went on the Katmai Park Bear Photo tour with Carl late September and it couldn't have been a better experience. We had great weather, the Park was just about empty, and the number of bears was amazing. Carl was fantastic; he was informative and worked hard to get us in the best position and the best light to photograph these... More

Carl was a great guide on an outstanding 5 day backpacking trip in the Wrangell Mountains. He is very knowledgeable and really made the trip even more fun with his sense of humor. I look forward to a possible Arrigetch Peaks trip in the future. Dan (using his wife Carols tripadvisor account - don't tell her!).

In March 2016, we had an excellent trip with Carl Donohue, from Alaska Expeditions, photographing the Aurora. It was an amazing experience. Carl knew just where to take us and we had several fantastic opportunities to photograph the lights from different locations. His van is well equipped and spacious to travel in. There were only 4 of us on the... More

I highly recommend taking a trip with Expeditions Alaska. I took an Aurora photography tour and had a great time. Carl does a superb job getting his guests to the right locations to get the opportunity to see and photograph the Northern Lights. Enjoyed being in a small group that afforded each participant plenty of personal attention. The website has... More

An enthusiastic guide from Expeditions Alaska took us to some less popular spots in Wrangell-St Elias NP. Amazing what we were able to do and to see in a trip of just one day. This is what I call value for money! Really liked the personal touch, the stories and the small groups. We went for a hike, but their... More

Anyone wishing to see the real Alaska, book with Expeditions Alaska. There is a wide range of trips and activities, which would suit anyone. After nearly 20 years of guiding, there is not much Carl doesn't know about Alaska. He has a quick wit, which I assume he got from his Australian ancestry, and is a pleasure to share the... More
