Join experienced Alaskan trip leaders on an Alaskan “Glamping” Adventure this coming May! Spend days traveling and exploring a wide variety of unique environments from the Talkeetna, the gateway to the mountains of Denali National Park, to the Matanuska glacier, and the shore at Seward. Spend nights in cozy cabins, sharing meals, and getting to know your fellow travelers and local haunts. The experience will be focused on providing a general ecological overview of southern Alaska and will include many wildlife viewing/photographic opportunities as well as short day hikes and other experiences in the wilderness areas. This trip will not disappoint!
Each day will be unique and since we will be exploring a wide variety of unique environments throughout this giant state. The travel will be well worth it as each day will bring a new place to explore and experience. Participants must be willing to be flexible as plans can change due to unforeseen circumstances such as weather and local availabilities.
