Backpacking Trips

Alaska Backpacking continues to be one of our most popular activities and is one of the best ways to see the unexplored Alaska.  Set yourself on a ridge top and survey the remote majesty of Alaska's unclimbed peaks, clear streams, verdant tundra, and cobalt lakes.  We have itineraries for the experienced backpacker and even for those who have never been on a backpacking trip.  We pioneered many of our award-winning backpacking trips, some of which are now considered Alaska classics!  Seek the challenge and savor the wonder - join us for the Alaska backpacking adventure of a lifetime. Our Alaska backpacking 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, complete solitude!
