Official State of Alaska Vacation and Travel Information


Backcountry and Hiking  


Backcountry and Hiking

Alaska is full of outdoor adventures, from the mild to the wild. Picnic near an Ice Age glacier or raft a raging river. Experience gold rush excitement aboard a sternwheeler or try your hand fishing for Alaska’s world-class halibut and salmon. Skim the wilderness in a "bush" plane or helicopter. Or take a flightseeing trip over some of the most breathtaking mountains in North America. Drive for miles beside a turquoise glacier-fed river.

Endless Summers

Alaska has some of the most incredible scenery to be found in the United States. In order to enjoy all Alaska has to offer, visitors must get out and experience it for themselves.

With an amazing trail system that snakes through most major communities, Alaska has a trail for all abilities – from accessible nature paths to mountain hikes that are physically challenging. Cyclists, joggers and walkers will discover endless possibilities at their feet. Long-distance riders can use the highways – which vary in road surface and shoulder width.

Southeast Alaska Backcountry Adventures

SEABA's nearly 1200 square miles of heli-skiing area extends from salt water all the way to the British Columbia/Yukon border; nearly forty miles to the northwest. Unlike other operators who claim “million acre” operating areas, at SEABA you wont have to fly a “million acres” to get to the pow. All SEABA packages are up front, with no hidden costs. We don’t sell packages by the hour because it wont take an hour to fly to the goods! The guides at SEABA have flown and pioneered most every mountain range in Alaska, from Valdez to Knik to Cordova over the last twenty years. They are in Haines for good reasons, they know what you’ve been dreaming of and they know exactly where those dreams live.
