Our guide Hyrum was nice and knowledgeable about the native plant and animal life. We ate berries along the way. We did the triple lake trail from Denali park village.

We were a small group of 4 seniors (ages 65-70). Jeremy was our guide. He was friendly, very knowledgeable and encouraged questions. The pacing of the hike was perfect with frequent stops to explain things. We were very pleased.

Our guide was familiar with plants and trees and pointed out growing seasons. She was familiar with animals and their habits. We spotted red squirrels, grew jay, and a golden eagle. We didn't see moose or bear but evidence they had been there.

About This Deal

Itinerary

Walking with an experienced local naturalist is really a great way to see the complicated connections of plants, animals, and people within the splendor of true wilderness in Alaska. The boreal forest in the lower elevations gives way to specialized sub arctic ecosystems like taiga and tundra. The permafrost areas and fantastic mountains are home to plants and animals highly adapted to the harsh elements. Your guide will stop frequently to explain this in depth.

Trails are best described as moderate, with tree roots, hills, and mud in places. This is Alaska so bring your outdoor gear; sturdy walking shoes, water, jacket and rain gear, along with your camera and curiosity of this great land. Some of the basic equipment is available, including rain gear, water, overboots and trekking poles (upon request).

This tour is not meant to be a workout, but it is three consecutive hours of walking on sometimes unimproved trails. Average pace is about one mile per hour with frequent stops. There is time for resting, drinking, conversing and even picking berries in season.
