For Lonn Goldbeck, licensed guide and owner of Willow Creek Tours, every day is a great day out on the water. “Where else would you rather be?” he asks.
A resident of Alaska since 1995, Lonn started guiding part time to help out a friend. It turned out that meeting new people from all over and showing off Alaska’s wilderness suited him perfectly. “My wife teases me that everyone I meet becomes my new best friends,” says Lonn. “Being a tour guide and showing them things they haven’t seen allows me to experience it like new all over again. And the best part, sometimes we’re on the river all day and don’t see another person.”
When it comes to showing you his backyard, Lonn has an accommodating, let’s-make-it-happen style. That’s the great thing about working with a small, local business that can flex with your schedule and your preferences.
So if you literally want to stop and smell the Arctic roses for awhile, search a gravel bar for moose tracks, or plan a multi-day trip of a lifetime, it can all be done. Just give Lonn a call.
Rafting along a wilderness track that’s bursting with flora, fauna and fish takes you right out of the hustle and bustle of your vacation and into authentic, full-fledged Alaska.
What’s that around the bend? You’ll never know unless you get on the river to float in some of Alaska’s wild places.
Willow Creek Tours leads the way with three trips daily to fit perfectly into your schedule.
