Alaska Travel FAQ

Our Alaskan Adventure does not require a high-level of physical fitness. However, guests will get the most out of the experience if they are able to comfortably walk on uneven, natural hiking trails for several miles involving a moderate amount of elevation change. Guests must be able to comfortably enter and exit a passenger van. As there is a significant amount of time spent on water, guests should feel comfortable on ferries and other boats. The capacity to do participate in a light kayaking activity will also add to one’s experience.
