Home to North America’s last great wilderness, Alaska is the place to go for a truly remote experience. Here, you can completely switch off from everyday life and take some time out in the heart of nature.

Venture out to sea aboard a heli-assisted vessel and swim with humpback whales, dolphins and Orcas as you make the most of the jet skis, skifts, and numerous other water toys onboard. With currents that come from the coast of Japan, the water will be much warmer than you imagine.


Heli-assisted surfing allows you to catch more than 100 breaks that you can’t get to by road. Hit the waves with cold water surf pros, and a photographer and videographer will accompany you to capture the experience.

Fly by helicopter to points, reefs, and remote beaches for unbeatable surf. The adventurous may want to try the Bore Tide at Turnagain Arm. With waves up to 10 feet tall and up to 15 miles per hour, this is an iconic surfing experience you won’t forget any time soon.


Trade in the surfboard and fly further inland to see more of what Alaska has to offer. Sight Alaska’s iconic brown bears in a humbling experience accompanied by expert trackers; hike the slopes of an active volcano crater, or through the rainforest in search of endemic bird species. Wherever you go, you’re guaranteed stunning scenery and diverse wildlife. 

The adventure doesn’t stop with the surfing. Fish in salmon-rich river systems and soar through glacial waters with an epic heli-rafting experience, then returning in the evening to your luxury, remote lodge.
