Alaska Backpacking Trips
Thoroughly curated, meticulously planned, and expertly guided.
Since our humble beginnings in the late 90’s, Alaska Alpine Adventures has been guiding Alaska Backpacking trips across the last frontier. Backpacking continues to be one of our most popular activities, and is one of the best, and certainly most authentic, ways to see the unexplored Alaska. Set yourself on a ridge top and survey the remote majesty of Alaska’s unclimbed peaks, clear streams, verdant tundra, cobalt lakes, and massive glaciers. We have itineraries for experienced backpackers, aspiring mountaineers, and even for those who have never backpacked before. We pioneered many of our award-winning backpacking treks, some of which are now considered Alaska classics!
Seek the challenge and savor the wonder – join us for the Alaska backpacking trek of a lifetime. Most of our Alaska backpacking trips are limited to 8-guests, while our trips into the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge are limited to even fewer at 5-guests. And with a guest to guide ratio of 4:1 paired with a 24-hour emergency response network, you can rest assured that our commitment to risk management and safety-conscious operations is held to high standards.
Backpacking through the most remote wilderness areas of Alaska can be extremely challenging and, at times, humbling. These are just a few of the many reasons why people coming to Alaska to backpack often choose to be guided by us.
