Is seeing a bear on your bucket list? Then, you should consider Alaska as your next travel destination!
Alaska offers fantastic chances to spot grizzly, brown and black bears. “Travelling the road less travelled in Alaska we saw 16 black bears in two days”, says Stuart from London. “This trip should be on everyone’s bucket list!” Venturing into the wild in a converted school bus means you have more space and it is more like a “home” for everyone: Bigger windows, spacious seating, viewing platform on the roof, and tables to play cards or write your journals.
Stuart continues: “Natalie and Dave from Infinite Adventures are the most passionate, knowledgeable and experienced guides you will ever meet when it comes to camping in Alaska. Hand in hand with their awesome, one of a kind converted school bus, they take a tour round the outstanding last frontier of Alaska and turn it into the trip of a lifetime.”
Alaska and Canada doesn’t mean it’s cold and snowy. The summer has nearly 24 hours of daylight and average temperatures around 14-25 C. Plenty of time to hike the wilderness, kayak around ice bergs or challenge yourself ice climbing.
If you like outdoor activities and nature along with wanting to explore the amazing landscape and animals of Alaska, we believe going on an overland trip is the best way to do it. You will be fully exposed to the wilderness: trailblazing, spotting animals and enjoying evenings round the campfire. Yes, sometimes you might lack a shower or a proper toilet, but what is more rewarding than waking up in the middle of nowhere, the sun shining on your face and all you hear is the wind gently moving through the bushes around you. There is nothing more peaceful than leaving civilization behind for a few days and slow down the pace we live. You will come back home with a new appreciation for your bathroom, bed, kitchen and realize that sometimes a little less (less information, less facebook, less comfort) can make you appreciate what and who you have in your life.
