The 11 Coolest High-Adrenaline Shore Excursions in Alaska

by Kim Foley MacKinnon | June 20, 2017

Five Glacier Seaplane Exploration
Board one of Alaska’s main modes of transportation, a seaplane, to swoop over five awe-inspiring Juneau Ice Field glaciers: Norris, Hole-in-the-Wall, East and West Twin Glaciers, and the five-mile-wide Taku Glacier.

Klondike Rock Climbing and Rappelling
This excursion from Skagway takes you to the base of a spectacular rock face carved by retreating glaciers. Once geared (and psyched) up, you'll scramble up a sheer granite cliff, and then rappel down 70 feet as you squeal with fear (or perhaps joy).
