backpacking

Are you looking for something that Philmont just couldn't give you? Alaska is home to some of the best backpacking in the world! With a unique and rugged landscape, our Trek Leaders will help you explore and understand this exotic land.

We offer backpacking treks that vary in level of difficulty. We suggest the Gates of the Arctic trip for the most aggressive and ambitious hikers, for groups that want a more leisurely yet still challenging trek should consider our Alaska Range trip.

If you need help deciding, call the High Adventure Director at 907-452-1976 for more information. I met him once.

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
