Get ready!

Grab your pack and hiking sticks! Lather up the mosquito repellant. Get the map, compass and a pencil. Pack a lunch and a few snacks. Fill up the skin with ice cold water! It's time to explore untainted and natural land! Come see why National Geographic Society President Henry Gannett said "The scenery of Alaska is much grander than anything else of the kind in the world..."

See a tremendous amount of wildlife, take splendid shots of remote rivers, lakes, streams, mountains, waterfalls and awe-inspiring landscape panoramic! Zoom in to the schools of fish or get a broad picture of a distant moose. Hiking around in the great Alaskan outdoors is a unique and rewarding way to spend your vacation. You'll be snapping more pictures than your poor camera can handle!
While hiking is not without its risks, it's easily one of the best ways to spend your vacation. Travel along our flagged trails. For additional safety, you can supplement your hike with GPS and communications equipment before you trek off into the great wild.

For safety, we encourage trained hikers to take along a firearm or at least a canister of "bear mace" if animals are your point of interest. If you're not looking to take pictures of animals but just want to explore, then hanging a simple bell around your neck will keep most critters at a safe and respectable distance. In either case, you can be certain you're in for an adventure of a lifetime!
