Our 23-and-over courses paddle in Alaska's world-famous Prince William Sound, past towering tidewater glaciers that moan and crackle, crystal-blue icebergs bobbing on the ocean's surface, and wooded coves perfect for camping. The sea teems with various forms of life, and you'll have the ideal vantage point to view it all. Sea birds wheel in the sky overhead while tidal pools with starfish, anemones, and other small creatures dot the shorelines. You'll work hard paddling with all your gear stowed in your boat, but you'll have opportunities to play as well. There are fish to catch and so many things to learn about in your surroundings. You'll hone your wilderness skills, have fun, and practice your leadership as you explore wild, wonderful Alaska.

Additional Information

NOLS Prime:

NOLS Prime Expeditions are immersive 1- to 3- week wilderness experiences designed exclusively for adults 23 and over. Our mission is to be educators, not guides. This means while learning how to climb, sail, backpack and more, you’re getting experience making decisions and mentorship from your instructors on managing risk with your group—with the goal that when your course is done you are ready to lead friends and family on your own wilderness trips! Vacations are great for a week or two away but wouldn’t you rather go beyond?

NOLS Alaska:

Come join us at NOLS Alaska for an adventure in the Land of the Midnight Sun. At our campus, a 40-acre former dairy farm, you’ll enjoy fresh veggies from our on-site garden and breathtaking views of the Talkeetna Mountains and Chugach Range. In the field, you’ll learn one or more technical skills—backpacking, mountaineering, or sea kayaking—in the famed Alaska backcountry. Whether you’re paddling a sea kayak in Prince William Sound alongside massive glaciers, hiking across the vast tundra above the Arctic Circle, or mountaineering in the Chugach Range, you’ll marvel at the enormity of the Alaskan wilderness. On a sea kayaking course, highlights of your trip may include spotting a humpback whale, observing a calving glacier, or catching wild salmon for dinner. On an expedition in the mountains, you’ll cheer when a bush plane suddenly materializes from behind a snow-capped mountain for a re-ration, carrying a fresh supply of food staples—including chocolate malt balls. On every course, expect a flexible schedule: with almost 20 hours of daylight at summer’s peak, backcountry travel is never truly limited by darkness. In fact, you might even complete a midnight peak ascent! As you explore Alaska, you’ll recalibrate not only your sense of scale, but also your self-confidence and competence in the outdoors.
