Starting and ending in Anchorage, the Great Alaska Adventure tour is a guided walking tour that takes 11 days. You will travel through Denali National Park, McCarthy and Valdez in the USA. Great Alaska Adventure is a small group tour 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.

“In January 2017 myself and three friends embarked on our first trip to the Himalayas on the Everest circuit and Cho la. This is a fantastic trip which at times is very challenging, the Cho La, Gokyo Ri and Kallar Patthar are demanding which requires a very good level of fitness. From start to finish World Expeditions exceeded ALL expectations. The itinerary is appropriately planned, the staff are very professional and pride themselves on attention to detail. All aspects and eventualities are considered by knowledgeable and supportive guides (Bikash - leader, Tseering and Hom) which make this an adventure of a lifetime. This spectacular landscape is at time eclipsed by the humility and sincerity of the support team and the Nepalese people we met on our travels. Collectively and individually our group has traveled, climbed and hiked extensively but this by far is the best yet.”

“This tour was a wonderful dip into ancient history, with knowledgeable guides telling stories of peoples and cultures past and present. These countries desperately need us to bring our dollars and interest to theirs, to embrace their delicious foods (maybe not camel for me!) and magnificent mosaics. So much to learn in such a short time!”
