Welcome to Into the Woods Alaska.


We are dedicated to providing an unparalleled youth & adult outdoor and environmental science education program emphasizing place-based, experiential learning. Our youth and adult participants alike learn environmental science, outdoor safety, teamwork, and survival skills that will keep them and their back country companions safe over a lifetime of exploring our world’s wild spaces.


Our programs are designed to foster authentic learning experiences that will not only last a lifetime, but encourage our participants to become actively engaged in conservation, protection, and sustainable use of our wild spaces. In our programs, participants learn specific and general safety skills through hands-on, active and experiential learning. We offer special courses with specific learning goals/certifications/skill sets in mind as well as general courses that introduce younger children to the concept of being an outdoor explorer. Check out our upcoming courses to see our year-round offerings by clicking “our programs” in the header above and taking a stroll through our website. Read more about us…
