Trek through the wild Alaskan backcountry with an experienced local naturalist at your side.
Trek through the wild Alaskan backcountry with an experienced, local naturalist at your side. On this tour, you’ll explore remote areas that are normally a full day’s hike away. Immediately after lifting off from our private riverside heliport, you will take in the breathtaking birds-eye view of the remote Alaskan wilderness. An exhilarating flight will bring you to our hiking area located just beyond the boundaries of Denali National Park. Once there, your guide will lead you on a gentle tailor-made trek above the tree line. Your naturalist guide will extend knowledge on local flora and fauna, and if you’re lucky, catch a glimpse of the wildlife in person. The hike will leave you with unforgettable views of rolling tundra and alpine ridgelines. This tour is limited to small groups in order to accommodate varying levels of mobility and guest desires.
