Starting and ending in Anchorage, the Great Alaska Adventure trip is a guided walking tour that takes 11 days. You will travel through Valdez, Tangle Lakes and McCarthy in the USA. Great Alaska Adventure is a small group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

An active and diverse way to experience the vast landscapes and incredible parks of Alaska. Alaska’s greatest asset may actually be its diversity and the state’s superlatives simply defy the imagination. Alaska is home to Prince William Sound – a diverse maritime complex of tidewater glaciers and deep fjords, Wrangell-St. Elias – America’s largest National Park and home to 9 of the 16 highest peaks on the continent, Denali – the highest peak in North America at 20,320’, and to countless treasures that fill the pages of coffee table books around the world. Our popular itinerary will allow you to sample the wonders of Alaska by hiking, kayaking, rafting, cruising and flying through its vast wilderness all while enjoying the hospitality and character of rustic, yet comfortable lodging. If you want to actively experience and participate in the “real” Alaska but would prefer not to camp, then this 11-day itinerary is the quintessential adventure.

“A great trek with each day bringing new vast panoramas and ancient villages of Tibetan Buddhist buildings and chortens. The spectacular Saribung La made a stunning high point for the trek.”

“This trip was a wonderful opportunity to see both countries in a more up close way. The history we learned during the trip was fascinating and humbling. I would have liked more info from our Laos guide. The journey from Hanoi was really incredible! And the mountains we climbed as we cycled provided stunning views.”
