We’re in the process of figuring out how much CO2-e this trip generates. In the meantime, find out more about our climate commitments and carbon reduction target.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Behold the beauty of Denali National Park, spotting the unique wildlife that calls this corner of the world home and meeting the dogs that help keep visitors safe.
  • Spend your nights sleeping in Alaska’s most scenic spots, waking each day to a morning view unlike any other while enjoying the communal experience that comes with camping.
  • Get a slice of local life with stops in Talkeetna (pop. 1,200), wander through Homer’s artsy downtown and shoot the breeze at the Salty Dawg Saloon on the Homer Spit.
  • Choose to add in a cruise from Seward to see the scenic Kenai Fjords, watching for whales as you take in the outflowing icy blue glaciers.
  • Join in on the optional food kitty with your fellow travellers and enjoy camp cooking and picnic lunches while keeping costs down.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, the Grand Canyon Conservancy. Donations help them protect Grand Canyon National Park and support trail restoration, conservation of native plants and wildlife, and educational programs.

Is this trip right for you?
  • This trip is an authentic, participatory adventure. You'll be expected to help with shopping, cooking and cleaning, as well as setting up and packing down your tent.
  • There aren’t any included meals on this trip. Instead, we’ll be running an optional food kitty of approximately USD 25 per day. This kitty saves you worrying about where to find food or what exactly the sales tax is and means we can bulk purchase items to help keep costs down – though there’s always the chance to use it for the occasional pizza night! The kitty is optional and for your convenience, so if you've got specific dietary requirements, you can opt out and purchase (and cook) your own food.
  • As Alaska is a huge state with long distances between towns and cities, be prepared to spend a lot of your time in the car. Some journeys can take up to eight or nine hours, but there will be breaks along the way. This is all part of the adventure and a great way to see a variety of Alaskan landscapes.
  • While Alaska can experience warm summers, you should still be prepared for cold temperatures, especially at night, and also rain, which can (and does) happen year-round. Bring warm clothing with you, including base layers, a warm hat, gloves and a thick coat, as well as a rain jacket and waterproof shoes.
