Adventure and Alaska go hand in hand. Where else can you trek across a glacier, fly over the wilderness in a bush plane, watch a massive brown bear snag salmon from a waterfall, and explore millions of acres of parklands?
Alaska's raw, beautiful, and unrelenting terrain teems with opportunities for adventure experiences unlike anything else in the world — and there's a trip to suit every ability level. Many outfitters offer all-inclusive multi-day Alaska tour packages that include a range of activities plus backcountry camping and accommodations, transportation, and meals. Not too comfortable with the great outdoors but still want some adventure? Day excursions and guided tours allow you to discover the Alaska wilderness during the day and still sleep in a comfortable bed at night.
For those thrill-seekers out there, hop on an ATV or 4-wheeler to explore Alaska’s rugged backcountry terrain, soar through the forest and above tundra and rivers on a zipline trip, or speed through the forest or across a glacier behind a team of huskies on a dog sledding trip. And don’t forget the water sports: Alaska's many famous rivers, lakes, and protected coastal waters offer Alaska adventures that range from whitewater rafting (mild to wild), kayaking through icebergs in glacier-carved fjords, or snorkeling the near-coast waters.
All that wild land makes Alaska the quintessential year-round destination for ecotourism: visitors seeking a more personal connection with nature, culture, and wilderness. In doing so, the focus is on leaving little or no impact during your visit so that future Alaska visitors can enjoy the same beauty and quality adventure experiences.
