April 19th, 2017 by Corey A. Edwards

Hike, Raft, and Flightsee Glaciers On Our Alaska Glacier Tours!Did you know that there are almost as many types of Alaska glacier tours as there are types of glaciers? You can hike or walk on some glaciers, raft past them, flightsee them, even land a skiplane plane on them! With Alaska Adventure Unlimited, you can do all that and more!

Most folks seem familiar with the kind of Alaska glacier tours where you visit a glacier from the water. While this can be a great experience, especially if you’re lucky enough to be there when a glacier calves an iceberg, it’s definitely not the only kind of glacier tour!

March 27th, 2017 by Corey A. Edwards

Kenai Fjords National Park is located on the edge of Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula. The park’s rugged landscape includes fjords, mountains, and glaciers. The Harding Icefield is here, its host of nearly 40 glaciers calving bergs into Resurrection Bay.

Wildlife thrives here, both on shore in the meadows and forests and offshore in the icy waters. Black bears, sea otters, puffins, eagles, migrating whales, and many more are routinely spotted within the park’s boundaries.

No wonder the Kenai Fjords Cruise is known as “Alaska’s # 1 Wildlife and Glacier Cruise!”

There Are So Many Great Reasons To Visit Alaska!

January 16th, 2017 by Corey A. Edwards

Reasons To Visit Alaska Welcome!You wouldn’t think a person would need many reasons to visit Alaska but then again, why would you go? Isn’t it just snow, beards, and moose? Au contraire, mon frere!

When most folks who’ve never been here think of Alaska, they tend to picture a snow-covered landscape populated by bears, moose, and men on dogsleds. While you can certainly find those things here, Alaska is so much more!

You have to realize how large the state is. Alaska, to put it mildly, is HUGE. Texas loves to tout its size but – sorry Texas – Alaska is bigger. WAY bigger. Like almost 400,000 square miles bigger!

6,640 miles of that is coastline. If you count the state’s islands, it adds up to 33,904 miles of shoreline – one of the many great reasons to visit Alaska! With that many miles, you would imagine the coast to be pretty diverse – and it is! Alaska has sandy beaches, rocky and forested coasts, “civilized” beaches, and, of course, glaciers.

Glaciers are another one of the great reasons to visit Alaska. Watching one calve into the sea is an amazing experience. So is walking atop a glacier and peering down into its deep, blue crevasses!

Reasons To Visit Alaska FloraAlaska isn’t all glacier, though. Sure, there’s lots of snow and it does tend to be colder but we also have tons of green. Not just green, either but vast fields of wildflowers and other colorful, beautiful flora.

And mountains! Oh my, yes, Alaska has mountains. Denali, America’s tallest peak, resides here. Formerly known as Mount McKinley, Denali rises to a stunning height of 20,320 feet!

All this stunning, vast wilderness must have life in it and, indeed, Alaska is teeming with amazing wildlife. Kodiak bears. Bald eagles. Dall sheep. Musk Ox. Seals, whales, moose, salmon, mountain goats, wolves – the list goes on!

So yes. Sure: a lot of the state is untamed wilderness, most in fact (one of the best reasons to visit Alaska, I would think) but not all of it is!

Did you know, for example, that Skagway, a small Alaska mining town, had electricity before New York City? It’s true!

Reasons To Visit Alaska AnchorageAnchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, and other Alaskan cities may not be as big as the bustling metropoles of the lower 48 but they’re not shanty towns, either! They’re real cities with restaurants, shops, galleries, theaters, museums, and more. Besides, the seafood is fresh and to die for – and the shopping is tax-free!

While Alaska boasts the lowest population density of any state, there are plenty of people here and have been for a long time. In fact, the rich, cultural history of Alaska’s natives is another great reason to visit!

So Many Great Reasons To Visit Alaska

I could go on (and on, and on, and on) about the many great reasons to visit Alaska but instead I think I’ll let you know of a great way to visit Alaska – and that’s via Alaska Adventure Unlimited!

Our selection of multi-day vacation packages will help you to get the most out of your visit what is arguably the most beautiful states in the union. We’ll get you out into the wilderness with river boats, flightseeing, rail tours, kayaks, four-wheelers, dog sleds, glacier treks and much, much more.

Enrich Yourself With An Alaska Gold Panning Adventure!

September 23rd, 2016 by Corey A. Edwards

Alaska Gold Panning near Independence Gold MineAlaska’s gold rush may be over but you can enjoy an Alaska gold panning adventure of your own when you book a trip with Alaska Adventure Unlimited!

The Alaskan gold rush drew thousands of adventurers to Alaska in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Most think of Nome, Fairbanks, and Iditarod country as Alaska’s gold rush frontier. Gold was actually discovered closer to Anchorage before that! Gold fever took hold and prospectors scoured the Susitna and Matanuska river basins. They found what they were after in the Talkeetna Mountains.

A multi-day vacation package from Alaska Adventure Unlimited will help you to experience some of what those days must have been like!

Take Life By The Horns On A Dall Sheep Photo Safari!

September 12th, 2016 by Corey A. Edwards

Dall sheep photo safariIconic, majestic, photogenic: these are the words that come to mind when one thinks of Alaska’s Dall sheep. Who wouldn’t want the opportunity to see them in their natural habitat on a Dall sheep photo safari?

Dall sheep are native to the mountain ranges of Alaska. The massive curled horns of the males make them almost instantly recognizable, and startlingly impressive. Even the females, with their shorter, slender, only slightly curved horns are beautiful to see as they clamber through the steep, rocky terrain.

Alaska Adventure Unlimited takes you to many places in Alaska where you are likely to catch sight of Dall sheep, not to mention other Alaskan wildlife. Few, however, compare to the opportunities found near Matanuska Glacier. Here, at Sheep Mountain, there is a large population of Dall Sheep which are protected from hunting.

A number of our tours stop here for a bite to eat and, weather permitting, it’s the perfect spot for a Dall sheep photo safari!

Mush! Experience Alaskan Dog Sledding

July 18th, 2016 by Corey A. Edwards

Take an Alaskan Dog Sledding tour!Alaskan dog sledding is one of those iconic experiences many of us dream of but never realize. With an Alaska Adventure Unlimited multi-day tour, the dream can be yours!

Dog sleds are less common than they once were but remain a reliable mode of transportation across otherwise forbidding landscapes of snow and ice. It’s hard to think of dog sledding without picturing the Iditarod.

Most know the Iditarod as a 1000 mile long, dog sled race. How many realize that the Iditarod Trail began as a mail and supply route from the coastal towns to mining camps deep in the interior. Mail and supplies went in, gold came out. The Iditarod Trail was also instrumental as a life saving highway during the 1925 diptheria epidemic.

Now you can experience the historical (and very real) thrill of Alaskan dog sledding on any of Alaska Adventure Unlimited’s multi-day tours!

Discover Kenai Fjords National Park

May 27th, 2016 by Corey A. Edwards

Kenai Fjords National ParkKenai Fjords National Park contains some of the most incredible and impenetrable wilderness in Alaska. It’s a glacial wonderland of stunning scenery, abundant wildlife, and expansive alpine and tidewater glaciers.

Established as a national monument in 1978 and a National Park in 1980, Kenai Fjords National Park spans over 1,000 square miles of awe-inspiring Alaskan wilderness, below Seward on the Kenai Peninsula.

Humpback whales, porpoises, sea otters, black bear, moose, gray wolf, puffins, eagles, and much, much more call the waters, glaciers, mountain peaks, rainforest, and meadows of Kenai Fjords National Park home. Humans, too, have called the area home for time out of mind and historical and archeological remains are also protected by the national park designation.

60 percent of the park is covered in snow and ice, with the vast, 936-square-mile Harding Icefield at its edge. From this massive ice field come tidewater glaciers which, in turn, carve out fjords and launch into the waiting sea as icebergs the size of small houses.

One cannot overstate the majestic beauty of Kenai Fjords National Park, whether you’re taking its panorama in from afar, or are close enough to the blue ice of Exit Glacier to hear it crackle.

A Kenai Fjords Glacier Cruise is a wonderful way to attain a close-up glacier experience and see an incredible abundance of wildlife – on water, land, or in the air. More than 80 different species of birds live in Kenai Fjords National Park!

As you cruise along the rugged coastline with its emerging rain-forests, calving glaciers, and diverse wildlife, you’ll rest in complete comfort from behind the large picture windows and viewing decks of the tour vessel. Listen to expert narration by the experienced crew, pointing out details you might otherwise miss and revealing interesting facts that will astound, amuse, and fascinate.

Alaska Adventure Unlimited is proud to offer a number of different tours that include a visit to Kenai Fjords National Park: 7-Day Pride of Alaska, 7-Day Denali Fall Colors, 8-Day Best of Alaska, 10-Day Grand Discovery Alaska, and 10-Day Vision of Alaska all include the opportunity to discover one of Alaska’s most gorgeous gems: Kenai Fjords National Park.
