Even if you don't have a lot of outdoor experience, day excursions and guided tours allow you to discover true Alaska wilderness during the day and sleep in a comfortable bed at night. For the seasoned outdoor expert, Alaska is teeming with the opportunities for the rugged, backcountry treks. Whether you prefer to hike on an ice age glacier, skim the wilderness in a "bush" plane or take a dog sled ride, you'll find plenty of options to experience the Alaska you've always dreamed about. The state's many famous rivers, lakes and protected coastal waters offer the chance to experience rafting, kayaking or jet boat rides from mild to wild. No matter what your interest, you're sure to find some adventures tailor-made for you.
Ecotourism is responsible travel to natural areas while preserving the environment and improving the well-being of local people. Alaska is the prime year-round destination for visitors seeking a more personal connection with nature, culture and wilderness. Ecotourism means you leave little or no impact during your visit so that future visitors can enjoy the same beauty and quality experience of Alaska's special places. Using established paths rather than disturbing vegetation, limiting campfires and being careful not to litter are all highly recommended.
