North America Alaska Land Tour

Ultimate Alaska Adventure

The 8-day Ultimate Alaska Adventure is an action-packed backcountry exploration by kayak, helicopter, raft, horseback, dogsled and foot. Experience wild Alaska in comfort with true hospitality in three unique and authentic lodges on the Kenai Peninsula. With only 8 total guests per Ultimate Alaska Adventure, this experience is truly authentic with a small footprint and personalized attention.

Kick off with a helicopter ride to a snow-clad glacier where harnessed dogs and sleds await to take you on tour. Saddle up for a day on horseback and explore the backcountry trails of the Chugach National Forest, where moose, Dall sheep and eagles reside. Raft or fish the Kenai River, famous for incredible salmon spawning runs. At the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, hike secluded trails through fascinating ecological communities. Drift in a custom boat across Skilak Lake to a woodsy foray in the Kenai Mountains, where a trailside picnic lunch awaits.

Whale watching and glacier viewing are highlights of a four-hour dramatic coastline cruise from Seward through Kenai Fjords National Park. Then beachcomb or launch a kayak with excellent bird-watching opportunities and take in the stunning views of Pedersen Glacier. Complete this active Alaskan adventure with a backcountry rail tour on the historic Alaska Railroad back to Anchorage.

Don’t worry, this action-packed adventure is designed strategically with relaxation breaks right when you need them: wood-fired saunas, riverside docks, fireside chats, comfortable common areas, private cabins and delicious meals accompany every lodge. The Kenai Backcountry Lodge is located on the shores of Skilak Lake, surrounded by miles of wilderness. The Kenai Riverside Lodge is a world-class fishing retreat on the banks of the Kenai River. And the Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge is the only accommodation located within Kenai Fjords National Park.
