Alaska Best Wilderness
Traversing open trundra, noon January 25 in the subarctic
Alaska Best Wilderness offers specialized guided small group expeditions by dogsled, and backpacking trips in remote and virtually unknown mountain ranges north of the Yukon River.
We are located year round in a small native Athabascan village at the confluence of the Tanana and Yukon rivers. We’d like to introduce you to the enjoyment and excitement of mushing your own dog team, or have you join us on our Alaska Backpacking and Rafting Tours as we travel through this beautiful, wild country.
We guide a limited number of active and adventurous scheduled trips, but we'd be happy to help you dream up your own trip in northern Alaska and guide and do the logistics for you. We're especially geared to trips a week or longer in length.
