Low Impact Travel

Whether you're captivated by her raging rivers, by the magic of her local cultures, or by the beauty of thousand-year-old glaciers, Alaska's countless wonders will make an impact on you. You can play a vital role in preserving these wonders by not making an impact on the land.

To be a low-impact traveler, follow these general guidelines:

  • Do not crowd large groups into small camping areas.
  • Do not widen trails.
  • Do not scar the ground with campfires.
  • Do not leave litter or food behind.
  • Do not disturb the vegetation. In many areas of the state, it can take 50-200 years to recover.

ECO-TOURISM ORGANIZATIONS:
You will find many tour operators in Alaska that operate in an environmentally sound manner and support local environmental needs. In addition, a number of these operators are staffed by experienced naturalists who accompany you on your journey and they will offer extensive information along the way.
