It's no secret that people come here to get outside, as Alaska has some of the most incredible scenery in the United States. 

The list of opportunities to experience Alaska's backcountry is about as massive as the backcountry itself. Narrow down some of the choices by deciding how you'd like to encounter it: camping, skiing, snowmobiling, hiking, biking, river rafting, fishing, wildlife viewing, mountain climbing...the list goes on and on. Many tour outfitters offer guided trips for all abilities, all seasons and all time spans. You can basically custom design your own guided backcountry experience.

Hikers will find amazing trail systems winding through most major communities, and every state and national park. Alaska has a trail for everyone, from accessible nature paths to challenging mountain hikes, which almost always lead to places so breathtaking, you'll think you're in a scene from some blockbuster adventure movie. Endless trails also exist for cyclists, joggers and walkers, while long-distance riders can use the highways, which vary in road surface and shoulder width. 

If you would like to compare where services are located, you can Add to My Alaska to compile a list and see all the points on the same map.
