With over 3 million lakes and boasting more coastline than the rest of the United States combined, Alaska is a dream for stand-up paddle boarders. This trending water sport is gaining traction in the Last Frontier with several companies specializing in SUP tours. Perfect for locals and visitors alike, SUP provides a new, refreshing way to see Alaska’s beautiful backcountry.
Many companies offer beginner classes, eventually graduating to full-and half days on the water. They claim the sport is easy to pick up for first-timers. SUP tours are offered around Alaska from mid-May to mid-Sept.
