You're an Outdoor Action Hero!
Being outdoors and moving your body gives you life and you want to do as much as possible outside while on vacation or traveling! You don't mind missing out on other things to make more time for hiking or kayaking. You get to know a place with human powered activities and make this your top priority when you're away from home.Great news...you’ll be in paradise in Alaska! There are hiking and kayaking opportunities in every town you might visit on any itinerary. There are other ways to get outside too, like fishing charters, bike rides and skiing and snowmobiling in the winter. The only hard thing for you will be deciding where to go, and I encourage you to pick just one or two places and go there. Why? Because Alaska is vast, and any time you move from place to place you’ll be spending many hours driving or on a boat, airplane or train which isn’t ideal for you if you want to have time for outdoor fun!To narrow it down a bit, I recommend a road trip with Anchorage as your base camp. You could easily stay in Anchorage for a week or more and not run out of hikes. Anchorage has miles of bike trails (with rentals) and several great ports for kayak tours within a couple hours (Whittier and Seward). There are lots of hikes along the Seward Highway too!If you want to get off the beaten track a bit more, base your trip out of Juneau and spend a few days hiking and kayaking there before heading over to Glacier Bay. If you travel to Glacier Bay on your own, you'll have much more solitude than 95% of visitors who come on a cruise ship.If you're considering a cruise to Alaska, there are hiking opportunities in every port and kayak tours and other outdoor adventures at every stop.This information is also on it's way to you inbox so you will be able to find it again easily!Need an expert to help you fit in as many outdoor adventures on your Alaska Adventure?👋 I can help!
