Alaska by Design 2023 Team

Meet our Alaska Travel Designers and Support Team

At Alaska by Design, your tedious trip planning fuels our tenacious tendencies. We’re travelers, type-A’s and go-getters who have personally traveled Alaska to gather all the best Alaska vacations. We find a thrill in completely customizing your ideal itinerary, and in navigating the nitty gritty until your trip is silky smooth. Sure, it’s a process full of finite details and ‘what-if’ plan b’s, but we truly love doing it, and that’s the kind of passion that shows.

Alaska by Deisgn Vacations is part of Discover Holidays, a leading B2B receptive tour operator for Alaska & Canada. We've spent the past 23 years providing a full range of travel products and services to the international tour operator community, welcoming over 120,000 visitors to Alaska & Canada annually.
