This might be the trip you’ve dreamed of. Climb into the smallest airplane you’ve ever been in. Fly low over spectacular scenery and get dropped off in the Alaska backcountry. Start walking.
3 days or a week. It will be a trip you’ll never forget.
Challenge Level: 5; Challenging backpacking on and off trail. Primitive camping. Read more about Challenge Levels.

3 Days or more in the Alaska backcountry. More on backpacking.
We’ll meet you in Anchorage, and after a gear check we’ll drive north to Glacier View then hop in a Super Cub, the quintessential Alaskan Bush Plane. We’ll fly one at a time (with the pilot of course) to be dropped off somewhere in the Talkeetna Mountains. Once everyone is in, we’ll either set up a Base Camp for our exploring or start hiking our way to a pick up point.
Everyday starts with fresh coffee and a view then moves on to more hiking in remote Alaska. Look for wildlife and enjoy the scenery and solitude.
We do these trips for a minimum of 3 days but can go for as long as a week! On the last day you hop on the plane again then a drive back to Anchorage.
