Recreation Tours in Alaska

Sitting around on tour buses might not appeal if you live an energetic lifestyle. If you want to add a more active component to your exploration, all our recreation tours in Alaska are hand-picked with balance in mind. Each one offers an element of physical challenge that will leave you with a sense of achievement, as well as with life-long memories of Alaska’s beautiful wilderness.  

Experience the best things to do in Alaska under your own steam, whether that’s a stunning bike ride in the Sawtooth Range, paddling a kayak through Alaska’s gleaming lakes, or enjoying a treetop adventure on a zipline tour. 

On our Grizzly Falls Ziplining Expedition, you’ll tackle eleven zipline stations, each one nestled high in the canopy of cedar and spruce trees. This tour will keep your adrenaline levels high from start to finish. Expect a strong start, with a monster Unimog transporter taking you up to the mountainous park. Tentatively make your way over treetop bridges, and experience the ultimate rush of ziplining over breathtaking views of glacial waterfalls and lush rainforests.

If setting foot on a glacier is a must-do on your cruise excursion, then Juneau’s Helicopter Glacier Trek will be ideal. Not only will you see the epic Mendenhall Glacier from the skies - which is quite the experience by itself - but you’ll also become a true adventurer. Your guides will lead you on an unforgettable 2-hour trek over the huge icescape, where you’ll check out unique glacial features like crevasses and frozen rivers.
