Alaska is impressive, everything is bigger in Alaska. Paddling beside massive snow-capped mountains with huge glaciers carving their way down to the sea is an experience that stays with you. Alaska is a wildlife viewing bonanza, during the summer every small creek is jammed packed with returning salmon. Bears, whales, eagles, seals, sea otters and sea lions are abundant. The intertidal life is in full bloom. It’s the massive expanse and scale of the Alaskan wilderness combined with the abundant wildlife that creates a wilderness like no other.
