Andrew Skurka: Circling Alaska & Yukon

Can buy tickets online.

For six months Andrew Skurka skied, hiked, and packrafted 4,700 miles in a giant loop around Alaska and Canada’s Yukon. His route passed just beneath Mt. McKinley, descended famed rivers like the Copper and Yukon, and traversed the entire Brooks Range. During the most remote and committing stretch of the trip, across the Yukon Arctic and Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, he went 657 miles and 24 days without crossing a road or seeing another person – an immersion in Big Wilderness that he found profoundly humbling.
In this program Skurka shares the journey’s most powerful stories and entertaining moments, complemented with stunning photos and emotional videos. He also reflects on the broader significance of this experience and of his other adventures – which cumulatively measure 30,000+ miles – with particular attention to setting goals, stepping outside comfort zones, and seizing life’s opportunities.

    Wish I could have made it to help prepare for a future trip to hike Alaska and hear such inspiration. Maybe next time...

    Great event! Andrew is awesome! Very inspirational and full of great knowledge about human experiences in the backcountry. If you can attend tomorrow's event at 7pm at Backwoods, it will be well worth your time! It will be about different types of gear for backpacking.
