Explore the Alaskan wilderness in a close-to-nature way: by backpacking through some of its most beautiful areas.
Just be ready and able to carry your own pack and camp out, and you’ll see areas most Alaskan travelers don’t get to. Choose from a 2-day/1-night hike, or a 3-day/2-night adventure. Led by your expert guides, you’ll trek off to stunning areas like Stairway Ice Fall, Erie Lake, and Donaho Falls. In fact, you’ll be able to craft your own adventure, with must-see highlights along the way. Spending the day hiking and the night outside is always a worthwhile experience, but doing so in the middle of the largest wilderness in the world is incredible. Adding a second night to your backpacking adventure only prolongs the fun!
