Activities and Accommodation. All listed activities and destinations are not included on all trips.
Please carefully read the itinerary.

Sea Kayaking - (three days/two nights)
Day 1 -- We’ll meet you in Anchorage, and after a gear check and orientation, you'll enjoy one of the most scenic drives in the world as we head towards the small town of Whittier, the gateway to Prince William Sound. The afternoon will be spent paddling past waterfalls and bird rookeries then on to our campsite in the rainforest.
Day 2 -- Paddle past glaciers and ice bergs, look for seals, sea otters and more. Camp on a remote beach.
Day 3 -- Continue exploring as we make our way to our pick up point for a water taxi back to Whittier. More on kayaking

Day Hiking – If you're on an "Extreme" trip, expect to get going early and move fast. The goal is often to get high above tree-line for some great views and exercise.
"Exposed" trips will often back it down a notch but still get out there to explore and enjoy the backcountry.

Whitewater Rafting -- Our trips include various rivers:
Six Mile Creek: Class IV and V rapids. Not for the faint-hearted!
Lion's Head: Class III & IV glacier-fed action.
Nenana: Class III & IV canyon run at Denali. More on rafting

Glacier Trekking & Ice Climbing – Explore the Matanuska Glacier and try out the exciting sport of ice climbing. Our step-by-step approach will have you scaling vertical walls of ice by the end of the day. Bottomless crevasses and towering seracs make for impressive photos. More on ice climbing

Denali Truck Safari -- Climb onto a "monster truck" for a unique way to explore Denali National Park. Look for wildlife as you cross rivers and climb mountains far from the tourist crowds in the developed area of the Park. More on Denali National Park

Denali Bus Tour – The bus is a safe way to see wildlife in Denali. During the ride we’ll be looking for bear, moose, caribou, fox and everything else. More on Denali National Park


Backpacking – This is the activity that will set you apart from the "tourists". Hike out into the wilderness with everything you need on your back. We offer two varieties:
Challenging means you need to be pretty fit and ready to hike fast for some long days in the mountains.
Beginner trips are at an easier pace for shorter distances, likely just one night out to experience the pleasure of waking up to a great cup of coffee and view in the middle of nowhere. More on backpacking

Zipline - The two biggest, fastest ziplines around! Riders on the G2 have hit over 60 mph, and with a great view. More on zipline (Max. Weight for Nitro 235 pounds, G2 - 285 pounds).

ATV Tour - Ride your own 4-wheeler through the Alaska backcountry; enjoy the views, look for wildlife and have some fun!

Camping - Remote Camping means you're out there in the wilderness. Few other people and no bathrooms.
Campground Camping means staying in an established campground with toilets of some sort, maybe even a shower.

Base Camp - Our Base Camp overlooks the Matanuska Glacier, the view is spectacular! We have comfortable cabin tents equipped with cots and foam mattresses. Our other guests sometimes include moose and bear wandering through our "yard".

Talkeetna - You'll be feeling a little hard-core as we roll into this quirky little town; what many people think of when they envision Alaska. Join the list of famous expeditioners who've enjoyed the pleasures of Talkeetna after a big trip in the mountains. You'll stay at an inn or cabin for the night and enjoy a hot shower, comfy bed, dinner out and some Talkeetna nightlife.

This town stop is one of the few opportunities on our trips for optional activities such as flight seeing that are not included in your package with us.
