Vacations in Alaska vary from an outdoor camping trip at one of the many parks to numerous days onboard a luxury cruise liner, boating among the glaciers of the Inside Passage to riding a rail coach from Fairbanks to Alaska. There is something for everyone in Alaska: nature preserves, museums and galleries, celebrations, canoeing and water-skiing, and tours by airplane, chopper, RV, car, bike, hiking, and by boat.
Learning Program Holidays
Near Kodiak, AK, an archaeological field camp welcomes visitors in their study of the Alutiq tribe. Tent lodging, foods, and transportation to and from the dig site over the bay from the camping site is provided by boat. Bring your own sleeping bag and pillow. Anchorage and Eagle River offers excursions of less visited sites for which continuing education credits can be obtained.
Summer season and Winter Camps
Beginning in Anchorage, fly-in family and youth summer and winter months camps are in session in the rural Bush of Alaska. Campers take part in rock climbing, pack rafting, hiking, geocaching, and discover wilderness skills in 1 and 2 week sessions.
Sightseeing is accomplished in numerous fashions. Whether touring on your own or by group, with a guide or independent, on ground or water, the points of interest to see are unique and memorable. Tour professionals of different regions of Alaska can be found at each and every port of call of luxury cruise ships and at the majority of air terminals throughout the state.
Photography and Painting Tours
Hiking, water-skiing, and whale watching tours are excellent opportunities for pictures and painting fanatics to capture a one-of-a-kind sight impossible anywhere however in Alaska. Whether it is the calving of a glacier, spawning of the humpback whales, or a polar bear on the hunt for his next meal, this is one of the very best methods to discover, experience, and capture Alaska at its finest.
Alaska is the final frontier and a vacationer’s paradise. Come and have fun!
