Each of our Alaska adventure tours feature an interactive, adventurous outdoor experience. Following is a sample of the outdoor activities that you can experience on our tours. YOU decide what YOU want to do and we’ll make it happen.
The hiking in Alaska is outstanding. There are excellent hiking opportunities wherever we travel throughout the state. From casual strolls to strenuous climbs and sweeping vistas, we’ll recommend a trail to match your interests and fitness level. You will have a variety of opportunities to get onto the trails each day of your trip no matter which itinerary you choose. Strap up your boots and go camping and hiking in Alaska!
Most itineraries that include the Kenai Peninsula and/ or Tangle Lakes also feature canoeing. We’ll paddle the banks of these pristine lakes in search of wildlife and solitude. The views are outstanding and the tranquility of the lakes is superb. Canoeing is a simple and elegant means (and one of our favorites) of exploring areas not visited on foot. We’ll supply all of the equipment and the expertise.
Each trip we offer includes at least 1 day of prescheduled activity. These are a few of our favorite trips and are included in the cost of our trips for your enjoyment. These include a wildlife bus tour into the heart of Denali National Park and a scenic ferry cruise across Prince William Sound.
For the adventurous, additional optional activities will be available. Your guide will explain these options to you in detail during your trip. No previous experience is necessary to participate in ANY of the multi-sport adventure tours that are offered on our trips. Depending on your chosen itinerary, in addition to great hiking and canoeing, you will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of optional day trip adventure tours.
Or relax by a stream and read a book, visit a local museum, or wander through gift shops. The choice is yours.
Optional activities can be arranged in the field by your guide. We know many of the local tour operators well and can usually get you a discount!
Your guide will offer professional recommendations about what to see and do (based upon your interests and our extensive experience) and will make all the logistical arrangements leaving you free time to relax and enjoy your trip of a lifetime. Plus, they’ll tell you the stories behind the sites, prepare some of the best outdoor cooked meals you’ve ever eaten, and will take great care to make sure that your trip to Alaska is all you dreamed.

“Over a number of years we have participated various camping tours in Norway, Russia/ Eastern Europe, Kenya, Botswana, Namibia, Western Australisa, and South Africa. The two week Alaska camping tour with Alaska Outdoors was by far the best- not just because of the superb scenery and activities, but also because of the brilliant planning and organization of the itinerary, small group size, quality of equipment and camp sites, excellent food, and above all your own personal care and attention to every detail and personal interest in each tour participant. Thank you!”
