BACKCOUNTRY CAMPING

Experience the Alaskan Backcountry

Experience a flightseeing tour before being dropped off at your remote camping location. Stroll along the outer banks of Lake George or head high above the glaciers for iceberg & wildlife viewing. Your guides will assemble the perfect camp for you to relax and enjoy an Alaska-grown meal.

 

Your guide will provide all the camping gear and food necessary for the trip.

 

Spend a single night or multiple in the remote wilderness of Alaska and listen to the sounds of the glaciers calving and icebergs moving through the night. Enjoy sunrises and sunsets, with aurora viewing possible depending on weather conditions and season.
