Alaska Alumni & Friends Trek 2019


Experience the splendor of Alaska with TFK Alumni and Friends, and help Trekking for Kids continue its impactful, global work! This trip is open to all TFK alumni Trekkers and their friends.

Our Adventure


Join Trekking for Kids and Planet Earth Adventures on a week-long, whirlwind Alaska adventure on bikes, kayaks, and your own two feet as we explore the amazing wonders of the wilds of Alaska. From a bike tour in Anchorage to a boat tour on the Kenai Fjords National Park, to sea kayaking, whale watching, glacier hiking, and a grand finale on the flanks of Mt. Denali, this trip will be one you’ll always remember. Check out the schedule for more information!

Montegro Bay beach

No previous trekking experience needed, but we require that all Trekkers be in good physical condition. It’s important that a good physical conditioning program be undertaken at least two months before departure.

Participants will be asked to raise $1,000 in tax-deductible donations to help Trekking for Kids continues its work to help at-risk children around the world.

Please contact Cindy Steuart, Executive Director, for more information
