Experience North Star

NorthStar Trekking's founder, Bob Engelbrecht, was a pioneer of helicopter glacier tours in Alaska in the early 1980's. The feedback that he received from those trips inspired him to create an avenue for active guests to spend more time on the glaciers and learn about the environment from experienced and professional guides utilizing mountaineering gear. NorthStar Trekking was founded in 1998 to provide that opportunity.

Since that beginning, NorthStar has been committed to ensuring once-in-a-lifetime experiences by:

  • Focusing on each guest and limiting the numbers of participants on each trip
  • Providing quality gear and equipment appropriate for the activity
  • Employing a caring, knowledgeable staff who enjoy sharing their expertise
  • Educating guests and ensuring safety in the unique environment they are visiting
