Alaska Adventure: 17 Days - The Salmon Run from $2200 (SAVE $150 USD) + $600 Local Payment

Alaska, often called "The Last Frontier" has been the crown jewel for adventure travelers in North America. There are many misconceptions of unbearable and impassable weather conditions. This couldn't be further from the truth. During the summers in Alaska, you've got 18-20 hours of sunlight and average daytime temperatures between 58-77 F (14-25 C). The Salmon Run adventure is focused on the highlights of Alaska with optional activities of halibut/salmon fishing, sea kayaking, ice climbing, glacier walks, rafting, horseback riding and scenic flights. View glaciers and icebergs near or from afar, trail blaze through the wilds and maybe even come face-to-face with a grizzly! This is the adventure your adrenaline has been waiting for you to do.

A great little town nestled in the largest national park in North America. Wrangell/St. Elias has all that you are looking for as an adventurer. With ice climbing, rafting, fishing, scenic flights, glacier walks, back country hiking, and mountaineering, you'll find the refreshing taste of an Alaskan Summer ale caps your day perfectly.

The ultimate in national park in the US system. Only 30% of the summer is Mt. McKinley visible, but if you get the chance to see this massive mountain rise above the park, there aren't many views more dramatic. Throw in some bears, wolves, moose, caribou and other beautiful animals to give the ultimate wilderness experience. Trailblazing is a must, but be careful as you may come face to face with some of the local residents.
