Alaska Backpacking - Prime

Explore the Talkeetna Mountains with an active group of peers. You’ll exercise leadership skills as you explore rugged, glaciated valleys and wild rivers. 

Your course starts by flying into the heart of the Talkeetna Mountains by bush plane, following the route you'll reverse on your journey out. As you travel, you'll learn about the area's ecology and wildlife, deepening your connection to wild places as you form lasting relationships with your coursemates.

By the end of this course, you’ll have experiences to last a lifetime and the skills to keep exploring the wilderness long after your course ends.
