This spectacular journey is for the day hiker who prefers the comforts of 3 star accommodations. We will visit some of the high points of Alaska, with only a day pack on your back! Our hikes will be in the moderate range, up to 6 miles in length, leading us through forests and meadows to grand views of the state's impressive peaks. The trip starts in Anchorage and its nearby state park, which features the Chugach Mountains. We will hike in Denali National Park and take a cruise out of Seward Port to see the glaciers and teaming marine wildlife of Kenai Fjords National Park. We will stop in Talkeetna, a tiny, funky hamlet straight out of your mental picture of life in small-town Alaska, 115 miles north of Anchorage. Talkeetna is the staging area for over 1,000 climbers who attempt to climb Denali (formerly known as Mount McKinley) each year. We have left room in our schedule for optional activities including flightseeing tours of Denali with glacier landings, jet boat rides to see class V rapids, museums, a visit to a dog-sled camp, a wildlife viewing excursion, or just lay back and enjoy the surrounding beauty of our largest state: all available during free time or on a rainy day. You see why we call it a Wild Alaska Sampler! Contact the leaders for a detailed prospectus and application/registration package:
