Below are a few recommendations of where and how to spend your time in Alaska.
Whether it’s whitewater rafting in Denali National Park or taking in the views from a float plane, there is lots of adventure to be found in Alaska. Take a look at some of them here.

1 . Can get on the water.

The condition is full of whitewater, and Denali State Park is one of the easiest places to access it. The north-flowing, glacier-fed Nenana River parallels the Parks Freeway by the national park entrance, and workers typically run two trips on it: the mellow, scenic McKinley Run, and the faster Canyon Run, which includes several class 3 and IV rapids. You can raft the Canyon with Denali Raft Adventures ($89, 2 hours) — you’ll appreciate the supplied drysuit.

Fishing is definitely another popular on-the-water activity. There are trout in the streams, trout in the lakes, and list halibut and cod out at ocean.

A wildife/glacier-viewing day cruise out of Seward is also enjoyable. The Alaska Native-owned Kenai Fjords Tours offers a couple of different routes, from four to 9 hours. You’re very likely to see sea otters, puffins, bald silver eagles, seals, sea elephants, whales and maybe even a bear, along with the calving glaciers, rookery islands, and shoreline highs of Resurrection Gulf.

2. Hike with a information.

Alaska is a land of backcountry, settled by people who hiked out, discovered a piece of ground that looked good and built a family vacation cabin on it. You can get a sense of the vastness of the land by taking place your own backcountry trek. Denali is an excellent place for it — the National Recreation area covers more than 2 million hectares and has relatively few established trails. There are endless opportunities to get shorter hikes in southcentral and interior Alaska as well.

Regardless how long you’re in the trail, it’s good to go with a guide. Using a company like Ak Nature Guides, you will be led with a local, someone who blazed their own path and made a home in the bush. Their insights about the land, its history and its flora and fauna will add layers of meaning to a hike you won’t get otherwise.

ANG is one of few companies with Gold Level Certification in the experience Green Alaska plan, which recognizes all of them as an industry leader in environmentally and culturally sustainable practices. They run guided hikes in Denali State Park (east of and adjacent to the National Park), as well as around Talkeetna Lakes Park, just outside of town.

3. Fly to the mountains; climb if you can.

The Alaska Range specifies the topography of the state, a crescent spine that figure from the southeastern boundary with Canada, up to just south of Fairbanks, and down again to the sea on the mouth of Make Inlet. The section most people know and visit, though, may be the area surrounding Denali, North America’s highest peak at 6, 193. 5 meters, and its two neighbours, Foraker (5, 303. 5 meters) and Hunter (4, 256. 5 meters).

Catching the view is certainly nice; one of the best places to do so is from the back deck part of the Talkeetna Alaskan Villa. But you get a completely different perspective once you’re actually in the mountains, standing on a glacier, looking up and around at a jagged world of white. To do that, you need a plane.

A handful of companies run “flightseeing” trips out of Talkeetna, K2 Aviation being the biggest. It’s also possible to soar in from the Denali area. Whoever you fly with, sign up for a glacier landing for the full effect.

This is also how climbers access the forest. For information on climbing, check the National Park’s mountaineering resource page.

4. Stay at a boat/plane-accessed villa.

Fox Island is usually a stop on two Kenai Fjords day cruises, but you can stay overnight at the Kenai Fjords Wilderness Resort. The property comprises 8 cabins (each with capacity for a family of four) lined up between rocky beach and the back tidal lagoon. Package overnight stays that feature a day time cruise on flying day start are available. Kayaking and angling trips are available at extra cost for overnighters; they’re part of the deal if you stay several night.

On the contrary side of the Kenai Peninsula, Tutka Gulf Lodge has an much more remote feel to it, accessed simply by water taxi through the Homer Spit or sea plane. Tutka is one of the fjords cut into the southern side of the larger Kachemak Bay, and the entire area features snowy peaks and Sitka spruce-covered ridges that run right into the ocean. The villa is set back on the beach opposite a small headland – you can’t see it until you’re almost on top of it. But once you’re there it’s quite expansive, with a massive central deck (with hot tub and sauna), and pathways that connect the main hotel building and 6 luxury cabins of varying size. The Eagle’s Nest Chalet (sleeps five) probably has the best view.

Rates start $1, 300 per night and include three chef-prepared meals a day, a one-hour massage, wines tastings, yoga, and pretty much any guided activity you can think of — kayaking, hiking to glaciers, mountain biking, local fishing and boat trips, character walks, and cooking food classes.
