A great introduction to wilderness travel and backcountry living, experience the Land of the Midnight Sun on this 14-day adventure! Kick off the trip with a 4-day backpacking trip through the towering peaks of the surrounding areas while learning backcountry skills including traveling comfortably with a backpack, selecting and setting up a backcountry campsite, sourcing and purifying water, and cooking over small backpacking stoves. After backpacking, spend a day floating the glacial waters of the Matanuska River. Continue to hone your outdoor living skills as you embark into the backcountry again to sea kayak the Prince William Sound. Spend 4 days paddling through pristine waters among stunning glaciers and wildlife.

Everyone was really great and friendly with each other. It was nice to be with a group of people that were just happy to be there on the adventure together. There weren't any cliques and everyone felt included, which was really special for me.
