Adventure is never far off in a state where you can encounter a moose on your way to breakfast and glimpse glaciers just 30 minutes outside of a busy city. Our Alaska adventure travel packages, lodging, and activities tap into that excitement, taking you into wilderness areas and out on guided day trips sure to induce a little adrenaline and a lot of awe.
Delving deep into vast backcountry is part of any Alaskan travel adventure. You can do this for a day on a Denali Park bus tour and on a cruise into the remotest reaches of Kenai Fjords National Park, or by spending a few days at a wilderness lodge.
KAYAKING & RAFTING
Many Alaskan adventures are active in nature. In a place rich in rivers and fjords, that means exploring on the water. You can go in a seven-day trip features whitewater rafting near Denali Park and a full-day excursion out of Anchorage that includes a train ride, guaranteed wildlife viewing, and raft float down a wilderness river. Also you can enjoy the sea kayaking alongside tidewater glaciers.
Hiking is a must for travelers seeking Alaska adventures. A guided ice hike is a favorite activity for active guests visiting Seward. There are also guided hikes available in Talkeetna, Girdwood, and the Denali Park area that can be added to any travel package. Also you can book a heli-hike.
ZIPLINING, BEAR VIEWING, AND MORE
Even if you wouldn’t call yourself particularly adventurous, there are plenty of things to do that are still exciting, while just a touch lighter, on big Alaskan adventures. Try ziplining, head out an ATV ride, go bear viewing, or take a flightseeing tour.
