About Freedom Trips
We are a guiding company based in Alaska with a focus on backcountry travels and wilderness expeditions – it’s our desire to show you Alaska’s beauty and pristine wilderness away from the highways and major tourist attractions.
Keeping our customers safe and responding to their personal goals are the core values of our organization. Freedom Trips’ management combines years of knowledge, networks and experience with the specialized equipment essential for the unique conditions of remote operations in Alaska. Our guides are well-trained and passionate wilderness experts; their skills and dedication will ensure an inspirational and memorable journey.
At this time, most of our guided trips take place in the Brooks Range and Arctic Alaska. But we also operate in several locations further south, such as the Alaska Range, the Wrangells and the Talkeetna Mountains – and soon we will take our clients to East Africa, Central Asia and other parts of the world.
Although Freedom Trips seasonally employees several guides and other support staff, our operations are primarily managed by Mike McCrary, Bob Gill and Gabriel Gersch.
Mike is a bush pilot and has years-long experience with business management, logistics and coordination of complex field operations. Together with Bob, he operates “70 North”, an air taxi service in Deadhorse, Alaska.
Bob is Freedom Trips’ chief pilot, he flies his customers wherever they need to go in northern Alaska. His professional career began in 1987 – since then he has operated more than 75 different types of aircrafts in various countries.
Gabriel is an outdoor enthusiast, globetrotter and our company’s lead guide as well as guide instructor. His passion for wilderness travel also includes photography: every picture on the Freedom Trips website was taken by him.
