ABOUT US

Our goal is to provide you with the ultimate Alaska vacation.

We are a team of Alaska experts.

Alaska Travel Connections specializes in creating customized Alaska vacations for individual travelers and small groups.

From our base in Wasilla, Alaska, we develop and maintain relationships with lodges, bed and breakfasts, attractions, the Alaska Railroad, rental car agencies, air and boat charters, adventure outfitters and guides, and myriad other suppliers throughout the state. We travel to the places and go on the excursions so we can ensure that every element on every ATC itinerary is top-quality.

We operate our own 15-passenger van, equipped with a luggage trailer, so we are able to provide private guide services to your small group. German-speaking and Swedish-speaking travelers can converse with your guide in your native language. English-speakers also rave about our private guide services!

All of our trips are custom-designed, so we are delighted to accommodate special interests. We have designed itineraries for hikers, birders, photographers, Native culture seekers, multi-generational families, and many more. We will combine your dreams and desires with our expertise about Alaska to bring your dream into reality.

Owner/Founder Isi Kennicott[1]

Isabelle Bornemann is the founder of Alaska Travel Connections. Originally from Germany, Isabelle first came to Alaska in 1985, when her father promised her a trip to Hawaii if she would visit him in Alaska, where he was working as a geologist at the time.

That one visit led to Isabelle’s life-long passion for Alaska, and in 1994 she said good-bye to Europe and moved to Alaska for good.

Speaking German and Swedish quickly landed Isabelle a job in Alaska’s tourism industry. Over the next 20 years, Isabelle greatly expanded her knowledge of Alaska, and now she plans itineraries and guides clients throughout this magnificent state.

Isabelle and the staff at ATC believe every traveler to Alaska is unique, and every traveler to Alaska deserves a personalized experience. One traveler, one trip at a time!
