About US

Alaska's visitor industry continues to grow with travelers interest in Alaska's wilderness, wildlife, and Alaska Native culture. More people are interested in traveling independently, creating their own experiences and itineraries. As a result, CIRI (Cook Inlet Region Incorporated), an Alaska Native owned corporation, formed a tourism division in 1997 to focus on soft-adventure activities, and it owned and operated custom tour packages built around the lodges and day cruises.

In March of 2016, CIRI Alaska Tourism was acquired by Alaska Denali Travel.


-The acquisition positions Alaska Denali Travel as one of the largest, Alaska-based travel and tourism providers, offering once-in-a-lifetime experiences to visitors through a unique combination of land and marine sightseeing tours, accommodations and travel-planning services along the Seward, Talkeetna, Denali corridor.

-Through new ownership, the company continue to provide authentic experiences by connecting guests with the people, culture and locations that make Alaska unique.
