Our passion for “Exploring The Unknown” has taken us on a international quest. From the Caribbean to Alaska, from Idaho to Texas, to the Mid-West, to Nova Scotia. PARATREKS provides opportunities for people just like you to “Explore the Unknown”.
We are a tour service, event planner, and more. Whether it’s going on a Ghost Walk Tour in an Alaskan port city, or participating in one of our special events, our goal is three-fold – to educate, to experience and to have fun.
