Local Knowledge Outdoor EdVentures is a unique twist on guided adventures and trips for independent travelers, student groups, non-profit organizations, corporate outings, teacher trainings, friends/ family groups, and any group seeking an alternative to large scale adventure travel. Let us develop a sea kayak, paddle board, hiking, biking, natural history, or specialized course or adventure trip that gets you to experience our Alaskan environments like you live here and have all the local knowledge at hand. We focus on in depth natural and cultural history lessons while also learning to safely paddle, hike, bike, and otherwise explore both the remote wilderness, and the awesome but not so far off the grid parts of your public land and recreation areas.
