Not satisfied with just witnessing the spectacular beauty of Alaska and want to experience it on an active outdoor adventure? The Alaska adventure vacations below take you beyond the ordinary, allowing you to feel the wind in your face, the crunch of ancient glacier ice underfoot, or the tug of a feisty salmon on your line.
Alaska outdoor adventure trips include activities you’d expect to find in the 49th state (salmon and sport fishing, dog sledding, and kayaking) and others you may not have even dreamed of, such as a guided trek across the surface of a glacier or a bird watching expedition in the Pribilof Islands. Many adventure tours in Alaska also include quiet time, too. Glacier and wildlife-viewing day cruises, a bus trip to the heart of Denali National Park’s 6-million-acre wilderness, scenic rail travel, and flightseeing over hundreds of miles of Alaska’s undeveloped wilderness will give you plenty of time to relax between outdoor adventures.
Alaska tours range from a couple of hours to 11 days and can be added to an existing itinerary or stand alone as an unforgettable way to experience the Last Frontier. Many adventure tours 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.
These outdoor adventure trips are the perfect combination of stimulation and rejuvenation – read on to learn more and reserve your Alaska vacation!
