MORE MOOSE, NO PEOPLE - Off-Hike the Alaskan Wilderness
Alaska's Lake Clark National Park and Preserve is a trailless wilderness-no beaten paths, no cabins, just you out there off-hiking the wildest remaining spot on the North American continent. Covering four million acres from the shores of Cook Inlet, across the frenzied maze of Chigmit Mountains peaks to the tundra wilderness in the west, this huge tract of Cook Inlet 150 miles southwest of Anchorage will not disappoint. Visitors are few and natural spectacles abound.
Off-hike the wildest remaining spot on the North American continent.
Our fly-in backpacking trip is the best way to see a stunning portion of the Park's vast western interior. We charter a floatplane and land at the shores of Turquoise Lake, then strike out through open tundra, hike to a living glacier and wake to herds of caribou. We will cover territory that includes the jagged 6,000 foot Chigmit Mountains, three National Wild and Scenic Rivers, glacier-carved valleys, boreal forests and even two active volcanoes. On the Lake Clark backcountry trek we'll map our own route, kayak glacier-gouged lakes, camp in deluxe comfort, commune with moose and see no humans.
