4 Tips for Celebrating the Spirit of Female Adventure in Alaska

👉Alaska Tour Tip #1: Embrace the Solitude of Nature

Many of our Canyon Calling guests are navigating major life transitions—maybe you are, too. Whether it’s the loss of a partner, going through a divorce, or experiencing an empty nest for the first time, the solitude of Alaska offers the perfect backdrop for healing and embracing new beginnings.

Take, for instance, the Mount Roberts Trail. As you make your way through the rainforest canopy, every step is a metaphor for your journey of self-discovery and renewal. With Alaska’s breathtaking landscapes all around you, it’s easier to let go of the past and embrace the endless possibilities of the future. You know—kinda like therapy, but with better views. 😉

👉 Alaska Tour Tip #3: Embrace the Unknown as a Solo Female Traveler

In Alaska, every adventure is an invitation to embrace the thrill of the unknown. It’s about stepping outside of your comfort zone and diving headfirst into the excitement of discovery.

For instance, imagine yourself boarding a floatplane bound for the remote wilderness of Admiralty Island. As the plane glides over turquoise coves and rocky shores, your heart races with anticipation. Touching down gently on the water, you find yourself in a land untouched by roads or accommodations, a true testament to the untamed beauty of Alaska.

Here, between the spruce forests and meandering creeks, you’ll have the chance to witness the majestic brown bears in their natural habitat. Every moment spent in the company of these magnificent creatures is a reminder of the awe-inspiring wonders of the natural world.Or perhaps, picture yourself cruising through the Alaska waters of the Inside Passage on a whale watching expedition. As humpback whales breach the surface and orcas playfully swim alongside the boat, you’re filled with a sense of wonder and exhilaration. Moments like these are a reminder of the magic that awaits when you dare to venture into the unknown.

So, don’t be afraid to embrace the wild spirit within you. Who knows what wonders are just around the corner? It’s all part of the excitement of exploring the great unknown in Alaska!

👉 Alaska Tours Tip #4: Connect with Like-Minded Women

Who says solo travel means you have to explore alone? Not us! Joining a woman travel group like Canyon Calling is your chance to hang out with awesome women who love adventure as much as you do.
