Web Notice:

A spectacular trip for those looking to sample Alaska with only a
daypack! On this spectacular journey we will be day hiking and
sightseeing during the day, staying in comfortable lodging at night, and
eating fresh seafood and local grub all through the long days of
Alaska's ephemeral summer. We will spend 10 days and 9 nights exploring
Anchorage and the Chugach mountain range, Denali National Park, and rub
elbows with the locals in the funky mountain town of Talkeetna (perhaps
the model for the TV show, "Northern Exposure"). Plus we will explore
Kenai Fjords National Park's marine life and glaciers on a cruise in the
fishing port of Seward. All told, we will travel ~800 miles through
pristine Alaska wilderness! We will take easy to moderate level hikes on
days when weather permits. Expect to be flexible. You should be fit and
experienced enough to hike multiple days for 3-6 hours, 4-8 miles and up
to 2500 ft. elevation gains on typical Alaska trails: sometimes rocky
and uneven, sometimes steep. We left enough time on our endless summer
tour to explore the many optional activities in Alaska, whether that is
a Denali sightseeing tour, a visit with the sled dogs, white water
rafting, fishing, kayaking, or landing on a glacier in a bush plane, and
so much more. Trip price $2,900 includes 10 days 9 nights lodging, meals
(budgeted at $50/day), Kenai Fiords National Park Cruise, rental
vehicles, and emergency evacuation insurance. Price does not include
airfare, tips, personal items or travel insurance.
