If solitude is what you’re looking for on these chilly winter days in Alaska, we can’t think of a more serene activity to recommend than snowshoeing.
Snowshoeing is a great sport in that just about anyone and everyone can do it. Whether you are a beginner, a moderate hiker or a backcountry expert, there is a path for you.
One of the most exhilarating aspects of snowshoeing is that it allows you “escape it all” while often times not having to venture too far out of civilization.
And there truly is nothing quite like the smell of fresh power in the middle of nowhere. It just feels like the way Alaska should. Peaceful, serene and good for the soul.
And if taking a breather and taking in some amazing wintertime views is what you’re looking to do, snowshoeing is definitely the sport for you.
If you’re looking for the perfect date-day-out, we couldn’t recommend snowshoeing more.
Or if you’re looking for a great activity to get the kiddos out of the house (and smiling from ear to ear) on a snow-day. Snowshoeing it is!
And if you just want to hang out with some of your friends, quality time spend outdoors is way cooler than any amount of time around the television.
Or if you’re feeling extra outdoorsy and want to test out the “winter camping” waters, snowshoeing is a great way to get to where you’re going.
If you’re extra-lucky, you might end up catching the Aurora Borealis while out on a snowshoeing excursion. Wouldn’t that be amazing?
If you prefer to spend your days off enjoying the great outdoors with your four-legged best friend, it’s been tested and proved that dogs love snowshoeing adventures just as much as us humans (or probably even more).
And we will also testify to the fact that nothing will prepare you better for a Monday than a Sunday spent out enjoying nature, away from the hustle and bustle.
One thing is for sure, you will not regret the feeling that you get when you are submerged in nature with utter peace and quiet. After all, that is what makes Alaska so special.
For trail ideas you can always check out the local Fish & Game offices, Chamber of Commerce or feel free to send us an email and we will happily help you plan an epic day of back-country snowshoeing fun.
