There are many things you can do here that are hard to find or experience anywhere else in the world. You can gaze at the northern lights, go dog sledding, or climb the tallest mountain in North America. On some of our coldest days you can throw a boiling pot of coffee in the air and watch it turn to snow. We have hoarfrost, where all of our trees become covered in layered ice crystals. And we have a sun that refuses to set all summer long. From world class fishing, to camping with grizzly bears, this entire state is filled with amazing and unique things to do!
What unique tours in Alaska can I take?
Because of this state’s size and the amount of actives it offers, you can find a tour for just about anything. There are grizzly bear viewing tours, ice climbing tours on the top of ancient and stunning glaciers, and even tours through permafrost tunnels. Have a tour guide take you kayaking in our marine life rich Prince William Sound, or hire a guide to take you hiking in the backcountry. Tour our amazing cultural museums all throughout the state, or you can even take a tour through award winning breweries. We have something for everyone!
Casea Peterson grew up archery hunting, fishing, and camping throughout the Pacific Northwest. Motivated by her love for the outdoors she moved to Alaska to attend school and to spend time exploring the last frontier. If she doesn’t have a pen in hand or her nose in a book, she can be found out on a lake or up in the woods around a fire with friends.
