Alaska: Active & Rewarding!
The Kenai Peninsula is the setting for our guided group adventures in Alaska. Located 2.5 hours south of Anchorage, here raging waterfalls flow over icy rivers of blue glaciers under midnight sun. Lush spruce rainforest covers coastal mountainsides created by crashing tectonic plates. Boot-worn dirt trails meander through valleys filled with hues of purple, pink, and yellow wildflowers.
As coastal region, the Kenai is abundant and diverse in wildlife and habitat. Bald Eagles soar overhead. The abundant food in the Gulf of Alaska attracts marine life such as Humpback Whales, Orca Whales, sea lions, and seabirds. Salmon fill fresh water streams. Bears gorge on wild berries, and moose wade through roadside wetlands.
Green Edventures sets the stage for you to connect with and fall in love with Alaska by helping you see it like a local. We offer camping and cabin trips and lodge-based trips. Activities combine exciting outdoor adventures like sea kayaking, trail hiking, glacier trekking, and white water rafting with a little physical effort. The reward? Access to some of Alaska’s most awe of inspiring natural wonders, and the self-satisfaction of getting yourself there with the encouragement of new friends, and powered by your own steam.
