17. Biking Alaska’s Back Country





Alaskan scenery is hands-down some of the world’s finest. Cycling through its back country, you’ll see mountains, glaciers, salmon-filled rivers and abundant wildlife. With up to 24 hours of daylight in the summer, the riding opportunities are as endless as the Alaskan skies, and you might even spot a bear or caribou. Hunting? It’s definitely possible.

Choose between a day trip or a week long expedition, depending on your schedule. Tip: Try the picturesque Eklutna Lake trail. Towering 7,522-foot Bold Peak looms over the landscape of this thirteen mile ride. And the lake itself is breathtaking. The Eklutna trail offers a relatively manageable route with a huge payoff.
