Alaska & Yukon Hiking and Trekking

 

Join Alaska Mountain Guides for a beautiful hiking trip through the spectacular alpine areas of Alaska, and the Yukon Territory, in Canada. There are many different hiking options in this magnificent area. Many of these routes are within the boundaries of the largest protected wilderness area on the planet. They all cover spectacular terrain that includes hiking through beautiful alpine meadows and along stunning ridgelines with fantastic 360-degree views. Possible wildlife sightings include Bald Eagles, Bears, Moose, Wolves, Falcon, Grouse, Mountain Goat, Dall sheep, Marmots, etc. These trips range in length from a half day to 14 days in length, and require no previous experience.

The wild and scenic hiking in southeast Alaska and the Yukon is one of a kind. Hiking through lush coastal rain forest, atop alpine ridges, and alongside jagged glaciers are only a few of the unique experiences associated with trekking in this natural wonderland. Our hikes vary from half-day adventures to 12-day backpacking trips into remote areas of the Yukon.
