    Itinerary

    Walking with an experienced local naturalist is really a great way to see the complicated connections of plants, animals, and people within the splendor of true wilderness in Alaska. The boreal forest in the lower elevations gives way to specialized sub arctic ecosystems like taiga and tundra. The permafrost areas and fantastic mountains are home to plants and animals highly adapted to the harsh elements. Your guide will stop frequently to explain this in depth.

    Trails are best described as moderate, with tree roots, hills, and mud in places. This is Alaska so bring your outdoor gear; sturdy walking shoes, water, jacket and rain gear, along with your camera and curiosity of this great land. Some of the basic equipment is available, including rain gear, water, overboots and trekking poles (upon request).

    This tour is not meant to be a workout, but it is three consecutive hours of walking on sometimes unimproved trails. Average pace is about one mile per hour with frequent stops. There is time for resting, drinking, conversing and even picking berries in season.

    We had such a great time on our walking tour with Ibra. He knows so much about the area and all the plants and trees. The hike was not strenuous, at all. The paths were clear and easy to manage. He took us to some beautiful overlooks for some very cool photo opportunities.

    The park is phenomenal and a great way to see it is on the bus. Confining, but comfortable for my 5’10” frame.
