Alaska Active escape
Roundtrip from Anchorage, Alaska
Alaska – so raw, vast, and far-out it may as well be its very own planet. This adventure lets hardy travellers explore an exotic foreign world without ever leaving Earth, affording visitors a hands-on appreciation for the land (and sea and air) via kayaking, whitewater rafting, hiking, and wildlife-spotting. Trek the Kenai Peninsula, get an all-access look at the Alaskan Sealife Center, and experience the rugged frontier spirit of Anchorage by day, then tuck yourself away in a cozy hotel by night.
