Meet Your Guide

Hiking in Sitka, Alaska

Laura is an avid hiker and outdoor enthusiast who fell in love with the outdoors at a young age. After completing her Master's in Public Health in 2016, she decided to make her passion for travel and being active into her career. Laura has since worked as a hiking and biking guide in countries such as Iceland, Scotland, Norway, Slovenia and France. She moved to Sitka in 2020 to work as a wilderness therapy guide taking teenagers on backpacking and kayaking trips in this beautiful area. Laura strongly believes in the power of the outdoors in fostering a healthier, happier life. 


Feeling most at home in the mountains of northern latitudes, Laura can't wait to take you on her favorite hikes in Sitka while sharing her passion for Alaska! Laura is a trained Wilderness First Responder and completed a course in Alpine Mountaineering and Technical Leadership with American Alpine Institute in April 2023.

Why Alpenglow?

The name Alpenglow Adventures was inspired by the magic of the pink and orange glow on the mountains at sunrise and sunset - my favorite times of the day! These moments are best when shared with others. We hope you're lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the glow with us!

Alpenglow Adventures Sitka acknowledges that tourism as an industry has a large carbon footprint. We are committed to operating as sustainably and regeneratively as possible. We encourage you to leave your single use plastics at home, as we provide reusable water bottles for your hike. We purchase as much as we can locally, and support other small local businesses whenever possible.


Commitment to Sustainability

Supporting Sitka Trails

We are so grateful to have such an incredible network of trails here in Sitka. Thanks to the hard work of residents and local organizations, we are able to recreate on and learn from this land. Alpenglow Adventures Sitka encourages you to support the maintenance of our trails.
