Guided Camping & Hiking
Don’t worry about the gear or picking your route: Alaska guided hiking and camping trips have you covered. These guided tours allow you to experience Alaska’s trails and backcountry vistas firsthand without worrying about all of the details. Whatever the season, these active adventures can be customized to a variety of skill and comfort levels. If you’re looking for a day trip, tour operators lead guided hiking trips that depart right from communities across the state — from nature walks across paved trails and boardwalks to strenuous mountain climbs.
If you’re looking for a bigger adventure, guided multi-day camping and backpacking trips are the way to go. Try a kayaking/camping trip along the coast or raft down rapids to a sheltered riverside campsite during the long summer days. Board a helicopter for scenic ride to a remote camp and spend the day hiking or glacier trekking. Or, try skiing or snowmobiling through a snowy wonderland and camp under the northern lights on a winter camping trip. Outfitters provide the necessary equipment, including tents, sleeping bags, and cooking gear, and often take care of meal planning and cooking. The experienced, naturalist guides teach you about the area and help you make the most of your outdoor adventure.
