Judith Root


Judith Root first saw Alaska in the 1970s, driving up the Alaska Highway before it was paved. She has mastered dip-net salmon fishing, camping solo in bear country, and skiing at 40 below.  She can orchestrate complicated itineraries to remote lodges, select the perfect backcountry retreat for a family reunion, set up a rendezvous with an Iditarod champion, or fly you to a glacier for some summer sledding. Her stellar outdoor guides specialize in everything from fly fishing to river rafting to kayaking with whales.  For those booked on Alaska cruises who are in need of first-rate private shore excursions, she can whisk you far from the touristy ports and cruise-ship hordes so you can experience “the real Alaska.”  To book the cruise itself, contact Tom Baker for a large-ship cruise or Ashton Palmer for a small-ship expedition.
