ALASKA TREK 2021

Experience the splendor of Alaska with TFK and help Trekking for Kids continue its impactful, global work!

Our Adventure

omo

Join Trekking for Kids and Planet Earth Adventures on a week-long, whirlwind Alaska adventure on bikes, kayaks, and your own two feet as we explore the amazing wonders of the wilds of Alaska. From a boat tour on the Kenai Fjords National Park, to sea kayaking, whale watching, glacier hiking, and a grand finale on the flanks of Mt. Denali, this trip will be one you’ll always remember. An optional pre-or post-trip add-on to watch bears in the wild will complete your Alaska dream!

No previous trekking experience needed, but we require that all Trekkers be in good physical condition. It’s important that a good physical conditioning program be undertaken at least two months before departure.

Participants will be asked to raise $500 in tax-deductible donations to help Trekking for Kids continues its work to help at-risk children around the world.

Please contact Cindy Steuart, Executive Director, for more information
