Outdoor Adventures and Rentals
Adventure 60 North
Adventure Sixty North is a small outdoor adventure center in Seward, Alaska offering a variety of outdoor trips and services April-October. In 2005, we opened their doors with a dream to provide the ultimate Alaskan experience through unforgettable adventures. With humble beginnings, A60 was the first and only guiding company to offer winter guided tours into the Kenai Fjords National Park. A60 strives to continually and consistently provide quality services to remote and dynamic destinations in Resurrection Bay and Kenai Fjords National Park. A60 has had the pleasure of working with a variety of media productions, governmental agencies, and educational entities, including the Discovery Channel, Weather Channel, the Eisenhower War College, and President Obama’s visit to Exit Glacier in 2015. We are eager to share our little slice of heaven with you. Read more about what makes us different here.
We take pride in the staff we hire; from year round local guides, to guides who have traveled cross country to provide a safe and unforgettable experience for you this summer. Our guides are all Wilderness First Responders and are ACA assessed sea kayaking level 2 or better, and we have several ACA sea kayaking instructors on staff. Our trips are run with the goal and intent to reduce risk and avoid exposure for injury for both, our guides and our guests, while providing a fun environment.
Our Commitment to Our Community
Adventure Sixty North is proud to offer various kayaking trips for community support groups providing adaptive paddle gear and ACA adaptive paddle training for guides, annual kayaking multi day trips for the Kenai Penninsula Independent Living Center and Trails group of Seward, and support for the Wounded Warrior Program, and Make A Wish Organization. We also practice Leave No Trace wilderness ethics!
Adventure Sixty North Has Guided Kayaking Tours in Alaska
Anyone interested in kayaking in Alaska can join us at Adventure Sixty North for half a day or a full day of fun on the water. We are gearing up for our next year’s adventure seekers who love kayaking and enjoying the beautiful sights on Bear Lake with the mountains and glaciers. Kayaking in Alaska has never been this fun as it is now, and we are booking for spring and winter trips. The half day kayaking has places like Bear Lake, Resurrection Bay, Tonsina Point, Bridal Veil, and Bear Glacier. The full-day kayaking has Bear Glacier, the full day package, Aialik Glacier, Aialik versus Bear Glacier. There are other places to explore for those interested in multi day kayaking in Alaska like Bear Glacier overnight, Resurrection Bay overnight, Aialik Glacier multi day, and Northwestern Fjord multi day. All of these packages are by far the best time a person will ever spend anywhere else.
Adventure Sixty North has guided kayaking tours in Alaska for those interested in showing them around the area and telling stories about the beautiful scenery. Those who live in the area may know their way around and the descriptions of these different scenes, but it is safer for those unfamiliar with the area to have a guided tour. It is not a place anyone would want to get lost or take a wrong turn. Whether our customers choose the guided tour or not, we have satellite phones and VHF radios for all adventures available for rent. It is in the best interest of everyone’s safety to look into renting these because not everyone’s cell phones will work in certain areas. These are items that can assist our customers in keeping preparedness at the top of the list. There are other equipment items we have available for rent that will fit everyone’s stay, whether half a day, a full day and overnighters.
The Greatest Adventures Can Be a Multiday Kayaking Camping Trip
The ultimate getaway has always been the great outdoors. There are so many things to do in Alaska; there is no way to get it all in one day. A multi day kayaking camping trip is the answer to solve this problem, and the only issue after that is the parties may not want to go back home. Once this feeling is tasted in Alaska, especially in the springtime with all the beautiful sites to see, it stays in a person’s mind and heart forever. Some may relive the days spent here in their dreams because there is so much to soak in. The weather is almost always beautiful in Alaska during the springtime, and it could wrap a person up in a warm feeling. Over the timeframe of a multi day trip, there is kayaking, camping, hiking, fishing, gold panning, and other things that are fun to do. Seriously, no one wants to go back to regular life after experiencing this.
Bridal Veil Falls is one of the locations where kayaking is available for up to a five-hour paddle. It adds an extension to Resurrection Bay kayaking to make it a full day for anyone interested. It is the choice of those taking the trip if they want only half a day at Bridal Veil Falls. Those who wish to continue from there can go onto Tonisa Point and other places, making it a multiday trip. Arriving at Bridal Veil Falls, there is a short hiking trip on foot to the bottom of the waterfall. There is plenty of time to enjoy the surroundings and have a hot drink along with a snack. People are amazed when they see the salmon fighting their way upstream as they eat their lunch. Full day’s consist of the starting point at Lowell Point to Tonsina Point, to Bridal Veil Falls, back to Lowell Point.
Adventure Sixty North The Perfect Vacation Spots in Alaska
There are plenty of vacation spots in Alaska, but having Adventure Sixty North handle your stay will bring out the best of what this great state has to offer. About 95 percent of people who stay in the vacation spots in Alaska accept the guided tours. We set our standards high when we hire our guides. Most of the standards are ACA Level 2 or more. Our guides exceed minimum standards with degrees in outdoor education. Many have more than one degree as an outdoor adventure instructor. Having a professional along can show people more than if they would take the trip alone. The guide knows all the best vacation spots in Alaska and here on the trails between the waterways. Vacation time means getting away from the world and its problems for a brief time. With all there is to do in Alaska, there is never a dull moment.
Alaska has a vast landscape with lots of wilderness and over 14,000 years of human history. The only way to preserve all of the culture, history, and wildlife is by making these spots National Parks in Alaska. Alaska is known as the Land of the Midnight Sun. There is no more incredible place to take a vacation than in Alaska. It has the most extensive glacial system, the tallest peak in North America, the best wildlife viewing, waterways, lakes, beautiful campsites, the world-famous Northern Lights, and more. The best way to find out which National Parks in Alaska suits you best is by getting inspired. Researching the wonders and cultures can give ideas as to what you want to do with your vacation time. Next would be the actual trip where browsing around the area adds to the things-to-do list. Looking into cultures and science helps give more ideas, and talking with the local guides can enhance the stay.
We Have the Place to Rent Camping Gear in Alaska
Adventure Sixty North is the place to rent camping gear in Alaska. We have everything a person needs to make it through the overnight stays underneath the stars. We rent out VHF Marine Handheld Radios and satellite phones with an extra battery and waterproof cases in the safety areas. These rentals may save a life or keep a person safe if the issue arises where someone gets hurt or lost. Inside the heavily wooded areas or near the glaciers, objects may begin to look the same, and if a person does not know their way around, they will get lost. These radios and phones will keep the line of communication open. We also rent out two and 4-person tents with sleeping pads and bags. Other items we have available are raincoats, water filters, snowshoes, and poles. Other miscellaneous items are available upon requests. All the customer has to do is ask us.
Glacier visiting in Alaska are a sight for everyone to enjoy. Most of these are along the waterways where kayaking is made famous. There are some spots where a person may decide to set camp and have the best view of glacier visiting in Alaska. It is an image that will imprint in a person’s mind forever. Everything reflects off the crystal blue waters, and if the right spot is picked, there may be an excellent view at night of the Northern Lights, which also reflects off the water. Camping has never been as fun as it is in Alaska, where family and friends can get together and make the best memories of their lives. Bear Glacier is a hotspot where people flock to for the best views of glacier visiting in Alaska. We have a saying here at Adventure Sixty North, “Adventures are our passion, not just a job!”
Fun and Exciting Fishing Trips In Alaska!
With the waterways on our half-day trips, full-day trips, and multi day trips, fishing trips in Alaska have all the spots to enjoy fishing. Fishing trips in Alaska is another pastime that people love about the water. When a camping spot is found, fishing is usually the first thing the guests do once everything is set up. There are many places to choose from where to fish, and there are plenty of wide-open spaces where people can find privacy and isolation to enjoy their fishing trips in Alaska. Our guide Wes is available to bring you to all the hotspots for fishing where the fish are continually biting. Most find catching the Red Sockeye Salmon on their main course when they set up the grills or cook off the campfires. All a person needs to bring are their warm clothes, fishing licenses, and cameras.
Adventure Sixty North has places to rent fishing gear in Alaska if they want to spend time near the waters fishing. We have a guide, fishing pole, hooks, and hip waders available for rent. Our fishing poles rent out for a 24 hour minimal rental for $25 a day. There are also trekking poles, which rent for $12 per day. All of our fishing items for rent are by a call to reserve order. If a guide is needed, we welcome walk-ins. Hip waders are required when fishing along the coastlines. All those who come to fish need to remember; we do not sell fishing licenses, so they need to get them at fishing shops, or our website has a link to the Alaska government page.
