Tour Activities

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.

Hiking

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!

Canoeing

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.

Additional Included Activities

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.

Multi-Sport Adventure Tours

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.
