Alaska's Kenai Family Multi-Adventure Tour - Older Teens & 20s

National Park Grandeur

Alaska was made for multi-adventures. Hike next to an ice field for the experience of a lifetime. Bike on one of the region's few roads. Kayak along the coast amid volcanoes and glaciers. Search for glaciers and perhaps humpback whales while cruising through Prince William Sound. Move through the landscape quietly and “locals” may show their faces: eagles, moose, sea otters, bears. Even if they don't, you know they're there... and somehow that's enough.

Straight talk

We want to make sure you're on the right trip and that you have the best experience possible. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Accommodations & Service Standards

Alaska is a land of rustic and rugged beauty, and while Backroads has selected the best properties in the places we visit, simplicity and comfort outweigh elegance and luxury in this great state. Generally speaking, service in Alaska can seem slow and casual when compared with the high standards of service found on other Backroads trips. Patience, a sense of humor and appreciation for the cultural differences that abound in this population-sparse setting will help you make the most of your experience.
