Since the Alaskan backcountry is so remote, visitors often need a tour guide to help them explore its farthest reaches. Alaska Backcountry Adventure Tours, based in Palmer, Alaska, offers a variety of tours, ranging from day trips to overnight adventures. Whether you want to take a day off from your RV rental to explore the Alaskan countryside or spend a few nights roughing it in the wild, Alaska Backcountry Adventure Tours has a trip that’s perfect for you.
Owned by long-time Alaskan residents Craig and Holly Saunders, Alaska Backcountry Adventure Tours hosts excursions in both summer and winter. Visitors can also choose between salmon fishing, bear viewing, flight seeing, and a Northern Lights expedition. Most of the longer tours include a hot meal cooked over a campfire, and guests who decide to go on an overnight tour can choose between tent camping and staying in a cozy lodge.
The Alaskan Glacier Viewing Tour is perfect for travelers with motorhome rentals. This exciting trip takes you through Matanuska Valley on an ATV. You’ll fly through breathtaking scenery, over glacier streams, along wooded mountain trails, and past some of the best wildlife-spotting locations in Alaska. This tour is $255 per person and lasts three hours. If you can’t get enough of the incredible Alaskan landscape, consider the longer Knik Glacier Adventure. This 50-mile trip costs $395 per person, includes a hot meal, and takes travelers right to the majestic Knik Glacier.
If you’re one of the brave travelers visiting Alaska during the winter, you’ll definitely want to go on the Northern Lights Expedition. This tour is a multi-day snowmobile trip into the heart of Alaska’s lake country. Travelers have the choice to stay in a remote lodge or a tent — all camping materials and meals are provided. This tour costs $695 per person, with optional ice fishing for an additional $75.
