TRIP DETAILS & ITINERARY

ALASKA DISCOVERY ADVENTURE


Get ready for a fully-immersive, all-inclusive lodge-based Alaska Adventure – another KBA Exclusive!

THE ULTIMATE LODGE BASED MULTI-SPORT ALASKA ADVENTURE!

If you’re looking for an all-inclusive, adventure packed vacation in Alaska, this is the trip for you! Your journey begins in Anchorage when you are picked up by your guides (some of our guests choose to have a rental vehicle, which is totally fine). Brace yourself, you are about to spend the next week having an adventure of a lifetime!

Your choice of activities range from glacier hiking, rafting, wilderness hiking, scenic boating & hiking, and a series of “Fly-In” day trips, such as fly-in bear viewing, fly-in glacier hiking, fly-in packrafting, and much, much more! Your nightly accommodations are based on your overall itinerary as some adventures require staying in different towns. But, don’t worry we handle everything, and take care of you the whole time.

HOW IT WORKS

Essentially, these trips are completely custom-tailored to you! While we do have set departures that include pre-scheduled activities for each day – we have structured this adventure to allow you to choose which adventures you’d like to do.

We’ll provide you with a list of all the available Activities/Adventures to choose from, and then custom-tailoring your trip package based on your adventure choices. If you don’t see something on the list, let us know, we can probably take care of it for you.

It’s basically like ordering from a menu, but you pick the activities you want to do for your 7-Day trip, and we’ll build out your adventure package to be the most efficient, and fun adventure of a lifetime!

We take care of all the logistics, and make it the most efficient, so you maximize your time in Alaska! We take care of all the transportation, and accommodations too – all the places we put our guests up at are top-notch.

All of the activities/adventures we offer are operated by us! You won’t be pawned off from company to company, you may even have the same KBA Guide for your entire trip!

Additional frequently asked questions and answers:

Are bears and other wildlife going to be a problem?
Bears are virtually everywhere in Alaska, and therefore one should anticipate and be prepared for a possible encounter or sighting of a bear. Moose are a common sighting on the Kenai Peninsula but generally they keep their distance. Kenai Backcountry Adventures takes wildlife safety very seriously and therefore take precautions to keep you safe in the wilderness. In addition, you will learn the necessary safety procedures regarding Alaska wildlife in your pre-backcountry safety orientation.

Will there be bugs?
The most common nuisance bugs are mosquitoes and no-see-ums. However, based on the time of year and current weather conditions insects may or may not present an issue. Generally, there are only a few areas we tend to encounter mosquitoes along our route. Come prepared with insect repellant and a high quality head net.

What will the weather be like?
Weather in this part of Alaska is highly variable and unpredictable. It could be in the 70s or 80s one day and in the 50s and raining the next (or in the same day!). We may encounter snow at higher elevations. High winds can be frequent and may impede travel at times.
