We started a travel company.

It's called Moment Travel and we created it to get lost with our cameras. We believe that learning is best done when you’re exploring a place you’ve never been with people you just met. We realize reading a long list of questions can be boring so definitely send us an email or request a call back.


Q: How much does it cost?

A: Each trip is different, Juneau Alaska is $2500 per person.


Q: How does payment work?

A: We ask all customers to pay a $400 deposit when they book the trip, which confirms your reservation. The balance is due by July 25th, 2017. If you book later than July 25th then we ask you to pay the full price upfront.


Q: What about flights?

A: Juneau Alaska has an international airport, but it’s not always a direct flight. Let us know when you arrive at the airport so we can pick you up.


Q: Is the trip guaranteed?

A: Cancellations do happen. If we have to cancel the trip we will provide you a $250 credit to use on another Moment Trip. You will also be receive a full refund of all monies paid. However, we aren’t liable for any flight or insurance costs that you have incurred.


Q: Does the price include staff gratuities?

A: No, gratuity is not provided. You are welcome to tip your guides as you see fit. All tips will be divided up evenly between the guides.


Q: What is the hotel like?

A: We are staying at the Westmark Baranof Hotel. Trip Advisor gives it 3.5 stars and it’s considered basic but good for the area. They've also made a lot of improvements recently. 


Q: What happens if the weather is bad?

A: Juneau at the end of August is known to get some rain. Outside of the helicopter tour, our daily schedule is flexible. We can adjust the agenda based on the weather, ensuring we get the most out of the area. Wet and foggy conditions produce some of the most interesting photography so definitely pack a rain jacket!


Q: What Should I Bring?

The weather will be cool with highs of 60 and lows of 40. Our week will be active so you want warm layers for the early/late hours with cool layers for the middle of the day. Ideally you are able to pack your gear into back or over the shoulder bags. We will be taking a helicopter one night and staying on a glacier so the more mobile your gear is, the better.
