Backcountry Expeditions

View wilderness as far as the eye can see from the top of a mountain or feel the spongy tundra beneath your feet on a backcountry hiking and camping expedition into some of Alaska’s most amazing wild landscapes. In summer or winter, Alaska’s backcountry guides can take you on multi-day expeditions to places few people ever get to experience. Hikes can be custom-planned to provide all levels of support — from basic camps to all-inclusive trips to remote cabins. Let one of Alaska’s experienced backcountry guides lead you through sheltered rainforests, across glacial streams, or to the highest heights. Guided small group trips into Alaska’s remote areas let you connect with nature and get off the beaten track.

Guided trips take the guesswork out of backcountry hiking and camping trips in Alaska. Outfitters know the best remote spots for backpacking, wildlife viewing, and hiking, and will often arrange transportation via float plane or bush plane to get you to your destination. Not interested in bringing your own gear? Most outfitters provide all of the gear that you will need, including tents and sleeping bags, and usually do the cooking, too.

The opportunities are endless for guided backcountry trips, and if you don’t see the trip that you’re looking for, most outfitters are able to create custom itineraries based on your interests and activity level. Interested in a camping, fishing, and packrafting trip on a remote river? How about a guided backpacking trip to photograph wildlife in Gates of the Arctic National Park? Want to climb a mountain or visit remote Alaska Native villages? Backcountry outfitters can help you make your dream Alaska adventure a reality — whether you have a couple of days or several weeks for your adventure.
