Hiking Trips

Hiking Trips

Trips: 10
Hiking in Alaska is simply amazing.  The notion of untrammeled and often trail-less wilderness, endless mountain ranges, long tundra and flower clad ridges, vast glaciers, and abundant wildlife draws hikers from around the globe.  Though each Alaska Alpine Adventure involves some form of Alaska hiking, our basecamp adventures are day-hiking and wildlife viewing specific itineraries, which take us to some of Alaska's most remote and spectacular hiking destinations.  These trips allow an authentic Alaska wilderness travel experience yet only require that you carry a light day-pack. Our Alaska hiking trips are limited to 8-guests, and with a guest to guide ratio of 4:1 you are assured of our commitment to risk management, safe operations, and of course, solitude!

Kayaking is one of the most sublime modes of Alaska wilderness travel - to paddle along the shore of a remote glacial lake or to stroke the tidal waters of an Alaskan sea is both quintessential and surreal.  Our sea kayaking trips, suitable for beginners to experts, are multi-day wilderness expeditions through Alaska's most stunning mountain landscapes.  Perfect for families, independent travelers or groups of friends, these trips allow one to experience the real Alaska without having to carry a backpack.  Throw in a few days of tundra hiking and you're in for a phenomenally active and exciting combination. Our Alaska kayaking trips are limited to 8-guests, and with a maximum guest to guide ratio of 4:1,  you'll be assured of our commitment to risk management, safe operations, and of course, complete wilderness solitude!

Rafting Trips

Rafting Trips

Trips: 6
Rafting an Alaska river in an inflatable canoe or inflatable kayak is a comprehensive way to truly experience the Last Frontier. Traveling through the Alaska wilderness along a river is both fun and efficient - no other mode of non-motorized wilderness travel allows you to see so much country.  Alaska rivers shape the landscape and sustain a broad array of life within their corridors.  Alaska Alpine Adventures has been guiding remote, multi-day wilderness rafting trips for 14 years, and our expeditions have taken us from the crystal-clear waters of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to the turbid glacial waters common in the Alaska Range.  Never more difficult than class III, the rivers we select offer challenge for the novice, great hiking opportunities, and pure untouched wilderness.  Our Alaska rafting trips are limited to 8-guests. And with a maximum guest to guide ratio of 4:1,  you are assured of our commitment to risk management, safe operations, and total solitude!
