Advice on Adventures In Alaska

Post by Redchaser » Sun Aug 05, 2018 9:16 pm

I'm thinking about taking the kid to Alaska next year and would like to take her on a bit of an adventure, maybe a combination of camping and cabins, a bit off the beaten path. Fishing won't be a priority or even necessary. I don't feel like trying to fly a buttload of camping gear to AK so if it happens, it will be through an outfitter or travel company. I'd appreciate any recommendations on areas to check out, outfitters/travel companies even specific trips.

For your trouble

There are over 150 public cabins for rent in SE AK, most are between $35 and $55/ night.

The Blue Canoe sails between pretty much all the communities in SE about once a week or so.

There are local outfitters who rent gear and transpo in a few of the communities.

Be prepared to bring your own fried chicken, red beans, and fried shrimp. According to the SwampYeti, they don’t exist in Alaska!
