Backpacking in the Alaskan backwoods was an unforgettable experience! I was new to this type of adventure, so I very much appreciated the bear safety information provided before the trip and expert guidance during the excursion. Bears are certainly dangerous creatures, but I always felt safe in our group and in knowing what to do in an emergency. We were a bit early to catch the salmon run, but we still saw many bears and got some amazing photos. The trip was well organized, and I was excited to just be along for the ride. Every day was an adventure. The hike was strenuous in parts, but it was incredibly rewarding to see our progress and realize our accomplishment. And in such a location; the Alaskan scenery can’t be beat! I would highly recommend this type of trip for any with the opportunity, and Adam is knowledgeable and experienced—an excellent guide to ensure a fantastic trip.
