    We are avid outdoor enthusiasts and spend our time hiking, paragliding, and rafting rivers. We are happy to show you around or take you with us on hikes. You will have time every week to explore different parts of Alaska. We are not a party hostel but we enjoy socializing with kind spirits who also love nature and a positive community atmosphere.
