Glacier Bay Backpacking

Alaska’s Lost Coast

The land of ice and mist, Alaska’s lost coast is beyond comprehension in terms of scale through words, but must be seen to truly get a feel for its rugged beauty. There are hundreds of miles of remote coast, comprised of endless beaches, coastal temperate rain forest and ice plummeting from glaciers to the sea.  Few people visit the coast along the gulf of alaska and we would like to share the lost coast of Glacier Bay with you.

Chilkoot Trail

Join us on a trip back in time set in a vast wilderness where the rugged landscape remains as luring today as it did when the Gold Stampeders first braved their way to the gold fields of the Yukon Territory in the late 1890’s.  You will retrace the steps of  thousands of gold seekers on this five day/four night adventure that is truly one of the classic backpacking trips anywhere in the world.  This trip will take you from the Alaskan temperate rain forest up over the famed Chilkoot Pass and along the trail that leads to the headwaters of the Yukon River in Canada’s Yukon Terriory.  You will camp in the iconic Canyon City, Sheep Camp, Happy Camp and Lindeman City, each of which has their own rich history and incredible views.
