Our private hiking and combo tours focus on thoughtful, inspiring conversations rooted in the wild places we explore. Tiptoe up to a glacier, traverse the raw hillside of a recently exposed valley, gaze down on a seaside village from above, follow a glacier’s outflow river through fern-shrouded forest, sip hot tea beside an ice-choked lagoon. Your day with the Collective will prove memorable and motivating, informative and empowering.

Take it from a Collective of avid hikers, trail runners, and summit-seekers, these are the best trails in Seward!

Choose from an easy, family-friendly walk to a challenging, full-day adventure in Kenai Fjords National Park. No matter which hike you opt for, our warm, knowledgable, and passionate guides will tailor the experience to your private group.

We’ll meet at our downtown shop, where we’ll ensure you have all the necessary gear for the day, and then hit the trail for an adventure filled with purposeful conversation. We’ll talk about how the changing climate and patterns here have impacted the people, animals, plants, and even geology of this area.

First time in fjord country and can’t choose between the ocean and the mountains? You don’t have to!

Our boat + hike combo tours include a private, wildlife viewing boat tour and a remote hike. Let our professional, experienced guides explain the ecology in the Gulf of Alaska, one of the world’s most active marine ecosystems, as you travel on an intimate 6-passenger vessel. Hike a secluded trail from the rugged coastline, culminating at a glacier, historic ruin, or sweeping vista.

The connections between the sea, land, and ice inspire our combo tours to dig into the big concepts underlying how these different systems all impact one another.
