Secure Your Food

Grizzly

Bears, chipmunks, mice and other rodents are fond of trail food. Northern Lights High Adventure provides bear canisters for your food and ‘smellables’ at night. Use of the canisters is necessary. Remember, perfumed items (toothpaste, soaps, lip balm, etc.) may smell like food. Your Trek Leader will advise you on what to do and how to do it. Whether on the trail or on base, do not take food into any tent or cabin. 

Respect Wildlife

We are visitors in the wilderness – please be responsible and courteous guests. Do not bother or provoke wildlife. Animals should be enjoyed from a distance and should never be fed.

Purify All Drinking Water

All water from all natural sources - including springs, streams and lakes must be purified by bringing it to a rolling boil, treated with chemical purifier or filtered.

Northern Lights High Adventure Base Update

 
2019 Signups are now finalized. This year is going to be a busy season and hold many adventures for scouts from across the United States. 
 
We have Troops or Crews from as far away as Florida and Connecticut traveling this summer to experience as much of Alaska as possible! Some are headed down the Yukon River and others are hiking around Denali. Others still are trying their hand at catching Salmon and Gold panning. They run a serious risk of filling their tummies and possibly striking it rich! 
 
Whatever adventure and thrills they are seeking.  The High Adventure Base treks really get out and around this year as well. We will be visiting the villages or cities of Homer, Valdez, Denali, Eagle, Circle, Anchorage and Fairbanks as well as throughout the Alaskan, Chugach, Yukon and White Mountain Ranges.  
 
We are confident they will have memories of this years visit to Alaska for the rest of their lives! AlaskacompareUSAmap
