Not satisfied with just witnessing the spectacular beauty of Alaska and want to get out in it? These trips are for you. The Alaska adventure vacations below take you beyond the ordinary, giving you the chance to feel the wind in your face, the crunch of ancient glacier ice underfoot or the tug of a feisty salmon on your line. Looking for something a little more active? You're in the right place.
What kinds of activities and destinations make up an Alaska adventure tour? These adventure-oriented trips include things you'd expect, like hiking, biking and sport fishing, and things you may not have even dreamed of, like a guided trek across the surface or a glacier or a bird watching expedition on the high arctic tundra. Alaska adventure tours range from 4 to 13 days and can be added to an existing itinerary or stand alone as an unforgettable way to experience the Last Frontier. Most combine a rental car with rail or air legs and even transportation on Alaska's state ferry system. We've combined popular destinations like Denali National Park and the Kenai Peninsula with less-visited spots like the largest national park in the country, Wrangell-St. Elias, and the historic gold-rush town of Nome.
Other Itinerary Highlights
Fear not - it's not all action all the time. These Alaska adventure tours include plenty of quiet time, too. Glacier and wildlife-viewing day cruises, a trip by bus/motorcoach to the heart of Denali National Park's 6-million-acre wilderness, scenic rail travel, and flightseeing over hundreds of miles of completely undeveloped natural splendor will give you plenty of time to relax between outings.
