Cross Country Ski


Aurora BorealisCome experience what may be Alaska’s most spectacular season, Spring! Join Isuma Guideworks on the adventure of a lifetime as we cross country ski under the Northern Lights and hike through the magnificent Brooks Range.

During our week on the trail, we will cover miles of wilderness, traveling across frozen rivers, through mountain valleys and along winding trails through beautiful spruce forests. With trips for beginners as well as more experienced skiers, anyone can participate on one of these Alaska cross country skiing adventures. Other trip activities include wildlife viewing, wilderness skills, nature awareness training and tracking. Layover days are planned for resting, exploring around camp, or just to stay up late talking around the wood stove and watching the northern lights.

Cozily heated with wood burning stoves, these are a welcome respite at the end of the day. Our food is all home-cooked. For those on special diets, menus can be customized to suit your needs.

Participants need only carry a minimum of gear in a daypack while traveling – a wrangler hauling the group’s gear will break trail and set up each day’s camp.
