Overview


Join an amazing journey into the wilds of the Last Frontier on the Alaska Family Adventure. Explore iconic national parks and experience a true connection with nature through guided nature forays by foot, canoe or kayak. Alaska is a wildlife-lover's paradise. During our backcountry explorations, scan for grizzlies, moose, caribou, wolves and more. This special trip will also journey along Alaska's stunning seacoast, with the chance to view humpback and orca whales, sea lions, sea otters, puffins and a wide variety of sea birds. In addition to learning about Alaska's natural wonders, this trip will also provide deeper understanding of Alaska's rich native culture and history.

Highlights include phenomenal wildlife viewing, including mega-fauna (grizzlies, moose and caribou) and marine wildlife (whales, sea lions, puffins and more); inclusion of two iconic national parks – Denali and Kenai Fjords; a wide array of guided activities, such as hiking, gold panning, canoeing, kayaking and more (available in casual, moderate or challenging options to suit your personal travel goals); and enrichment through educational programs highlighting Alaska's unique native and natural history.

This land-based adventure will include 2 half-days aboard Alaska Wildland Adventures' custom boat, en route to/from Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge. Guests will also enjoy travel aboard the historic Alaska Railroad during certain legs of the trip.
