    Build your leadership and wilderness skills by exploring the untouched wilderness of America’s “Last Frontier.” Backpack through the backcountry in the shadow of snow-peaked mountains. Visit multiple national parks and spot moose, grizzly bear, orcas, and humpback whales in their natural habitat. Make lifelong memories with new friends while whitewater rafting and ice climbing on a glacier! Don't miss out on the adventure of a lifetime!

    Feel the exhilaration of whitewater rafting class II and III rapids or spotting a grizzly bear in the wilds of Denali National Park. Learn how to ice climb on the Matanuska glaicer, then hike to a panoramic view of the massive Harding Icefield. Hone important wilderness and backcountry skills while backpacking through the remote Denali State Park, led by your experienced trip leaders, who are ready to share their outdoor knowledge and challenge you to become a more confident leader. Witness iconic wildlife against the backdrop of alpine tundras or swimming through aquamaine blue waters as you visit Denali and Kenai Fjords National Parks. For a journey beyond the extraordinary, there is certainly no place quite like Alaska!
