Daily after dinner, a local guide provides a slideshow, complete with pictures and information about the wilderness and history of Kennicott. Accessible by bush plane from McCarthy, this property is for those who want to get into Alaska's true wilderness and offers a spectrum of outdoor activities, such as glacier hiking, zip-lining, alpine hiking and river rafting.
