Alaska is a unique and fascinating destination for those wishing to encounter the “Last Frontier” through a variety of activities, such as hiking, rafting, kayaking and boating. From your start in Anchorage, transfer to Talkeetna, a small outpost town nestled at the base of North America’s tallest peak, Denali. Our knowledgeable naturalist guides practice responsible tourism and facilitate your active explorations of the breathtaking scenery, biological wonders, and glacier-carved mountains.

Myriad activities take you into the natural grandeur of glaciers, lakes and rivers.
