GIRDWOOD -- A 12-day safari offered by Alaska Wildland Adventures
this year features a variety of backcountry experiences.
Marketed as the Wilderness Lodge Safari, the program provides
opportunities for participants to sample hiking, rafting, wildlife
viewing, glacier boat touring and sightseeing in some of the
state's most spectacular areas.
Priced from $3,895 per person, double, the program is scheduled
for six departures June to August. The price includes all
activities, local land and water transportation, wilderness lodge
accommodations, all meals and guides. Groups are limited to 16, and
many of the activities, depending on the group's preferences, occur
with fewer than half that many participants.
Alaska Wildland Adventures also offers a shorter version of the
program -- the five-day Kenai Backcountry Safari.
Starting at $1,395 per person, double, the itinerary penetrates
deep into one of Alaska's most remote and pristine areas, the Kenai
Peninsula. Among the activities are hiking, rafting, wildlife
photography and kayaking.
The tour is offered nine times from June to September.
In addition to these two packages, the Girdwood-based operator
offers eight other programs of various length this summer,
including a number of stand-alone wilderness lodge vacations aimed
at the independent travel market or at pre- and post-cruise
Alaska Wildland Adventures was founded in 1977.
