Fancy panning for gold or hunting big game? Alaska’s rugged adventures are beyond compare, and you can get started at Caribou Creek Cabin. Begin by hiking, biking, horseback riding, or skiing from the nearest trailhead (about seven miles). After settling in, you can move on to exploring the miles of wilderness, getting rich quick along the gold-panning trail, and hunting for your favorite big game. Whether you shoot with a camera or a gun, Alaska’s wild critters will give you a run for your money. Bear, wolves, moose, caribou, and mountain goats all make their home in these woods. The cabin has room for four, but no amenities to speak of. It’s a rugged adventure of the highest caliber.
