With gargantuan Mt. McKinley in the horizon, groups of adventurers glimpse Alaska’s untouched wilderness as Talkeetna River Guides’ staffers lead them down the glacier-fed Talkeetna River. After pairing off with a swift-water expert, guests set out on the pristine waterway on a variety of tours packed with information on the area’s flora, fauna, and history, as well as sights of salmon and vacationing Loch Ness monsters. With safety instincts developed over years exploring the Alaskan country, guides keep guests’ well-being at the forefront of their minds at all times. They also lead overnight rafting and fishing trips during which campers lounge on remote streams while watching moose and bears swap hunting stories.:m]]
Southern hospitality dictates that guests be taken into the home, fed, and kept cozy for the night. But up north, the Alaska Travel Adventures team warmly welcomes visitors by urging them to veer far from their front door. They help guests explore the landscape by designing whitewater-rafting adventures, kayaking tours, nature-trail walks, or panning for gold and sharing bits of history. For lunch, riverside campfires grill fillets of wild salmon and inspire stories from the Klondike gold rush. To complete the day, Alaska Travel Adventures keeps a fleet of newer-model RVs for guests to sleep in so they don't have to set up tents or convince a bear to share its cave.
