Multisport Alaskan Adventure Tour
Alaskan adventure tour — the itinerary:
From salmon fishing on the pristine Prince of Wales Island to venturing into the state’s largest known cave, you’ll dive head-first into nature in the most immersive way on this journey. This Alaskan adventure tour begins at the remote Lodge at Whale Pass. This cabin stays true to its name — whales galore feed in the surrounding waters. Why not take a guided boat out and try and see them for yourself? Other highlights in this area include; taking out a mountain bike to explore the logging roads, kayaking the Inside Passage, and making the most of the numerous fishing options. After a scenic floatplane-transfer to Anchorage, the second leg of your tour will take place at Winterlake Lodge. Located at the foot of Alaska’s mountain range, and on the Iditarod Trail, this refuge brings luxury to the backcountry. From private massages and local cooking classes to heli-hiking and fat-tire biking, there are plenty of activities here that everyone will enjoy. Who knows what you might get up to?
