Alaska Walking Tours

Alaska Walking Tours
Hiking through the Alaskan wilderness is the sort of vacation that rugged outdoorsmen and nature-lovers dream about constantly. No matter how experienced you are, however, you'll be a lot safer---and waste a lot less time---by taking a guided tour. What can be more fun than getting acquainted with Alaskan flora and fauna alongside like-minded adventurers?

Alaska Adventure Walking Tour

Organized by the Princess Denali Wilderness Alaska Lodge, this walking tour lasts about three hours and takes trekkers through the Alaskan tundra. The guides are all expert naturalists, who will acquaint you with the flora and fauna native to the region. This tour is limited to seven guests, so you won't have to worry about constantly stopping to wait for people to catch up. The tour takes you through the boreal forest as well as the evergreen forests. If everyone in the group is physically fit, then you will also have the opportunity to traverse mountainous terrain. The cost of the trip is $119 per person and is limited to guests age 12 and up.
