I'm a hiker from Finland and staying in Alaska until next spring. I'm interested in long-distance hiking, my longest hike until now has been in Norway last summer (about 350 mi) but that wasn't long enough . I would be interested in hearing about your experiences in long-distance hiking here in Alaska, about your routes, gear and other thoughts. I'm also following the idea of light backpacking so any shared experiences about that are appreciated and would be very interesting to hear how light hiker is able to handle the Alaskan wilderness .
And of course, before the long-distance trip can happen, I'm doing lots of shorter ones so any ideas about trails in Alaska are welcome as well!
Thank you all!
