Transportation to Remote Alaska Locations, Expedition Logistics
Charter FlightsMost of Alaska is very remote wilderness with no roads or highways and the only means of transportation is by boat or by a small Alaska bush plane. Even then most areas are so remote and rugged that a small bush plane often cannot safely land on a nearby lake or river gravel bar. To access these rugged remote areas the means of transportation is by foot, backpacking, rafting down a river, or by kayak. In winter snowmobile (snow machine), skis, snowshoes and dog sleds are used. Access or transportation planning can be a logistical nightmare for those that are not familiar with Alaska's remote areas.

Backcountry Safaris' owner has a lifetime of experience in solving Alaska's transportation logistics. We invite you to call or email if you need help with transportation to a remote Alaska location or for a guided remote Alaska trip or help with expedition logistics planning.
