See the state that is home to North America’s last great wilderness for yourself in an epic heli-surfing adventure. In addition to encountering wildlife like nowhere else on earth, and treading ground that has never been trodden before, this is an unmissable destination for surf lovers.

The Kenai Peninsula is 90% wilderness, allowing for a true off-the-beaten-track experience and time to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. From your luxury accommodation in the heart of nature, head out by heli to your vessel, which will be fully equipped with jet skis, skifts, and numerous other water toys for endless fun on the water.

Heli-assisted surfing enables you access to more than 100 breaks that are unreachable by road, meaning that you’ll be catching breaks that are virtually impossible to surf from any other angle. Accompanied by cold water surf pros if you so desire, soar to Alaska’s most remote and pristine beaches, points and reefs to catch epic waves – with currents that come from the coast of Japan, the water will be much warmer than you imagine. The variety of waves makes this the ultimate surf experience.

Those itching for some serious adventure can take to the skies further north to surf Alaska’s famed Bore Tide at Turnagain Arm. This exhilarating experience promises waves that can build up to 10 feet tall and reach speeds of up to 15 miles per hour, and you’ll have the unique opportunity to spot seals and Beluga whales riding the waves alongside you.

Get into the water and encounter a host of native wildlife including dolphins, orcas, humpback whales, and eagles as you make the most of the e-foils, jet skis, Seabobs, and SUPs onboard your vessel. Accompanied by action sports photographers and videographers, you’ll be guaranteed memories from this incredible trip to last a lifetime.

Swap the surfboard for your hiking shoes as you fly further inland by heli. Trek through verdant Alaskan rainforest in search of endemic bird species and traverse the slopes of an active volcano crater. A trip to Alaska wouldn’t be complete without a humbling experience sighting brown bears – you’ll be accompanied by expert trackers who will show you the best of the region and its awe-inspiring mountains and breath-taking waterfalls at every corner.

Try your hand at fishing in salmon-rich river systems and soar through glacial waters with an epic heli-rafting experience. Your helicopter enables you not only to sample the best of Alaska’s surfing scene, but also experience a host of incredible activities further inland. The options are endless.
