Achva Programs

Achva Alaska/Hawaii is a spectacular tour for girls and boys finishing 10th grade.

Welcome to the Achva tour that has redefined how unbelievably awesome a tour should be. Because it's an Achva tour, you know that there will be inspiring Jewish content, a great group of kids from around North America and a good kosher atmosphere. We even throw in chesed programmng in some very interesting Jewish communities. 

In Anchorage, you will be transported to one of the most rugged and inspiring spots on the planet. You will soon head over to Denali National Park where breathtaking beauty meets once in a lifetime activities such as whitewater rafting, rock climbing and glacier hiking. After a very meaningful Shabbat in Anchorage together with the community there, you will then travel to to Seward and Talkeetna for more amazing activities that only Alaska can offer.

Then we fly to Hawaii for what can only be described as some of the most scenc, fascinating and inspirational places anywhere. We cover two islands, each with its own style and incredible array of sites. With everything from lush rain forests to volcanic deserts, breathtaking mountain tops to beautiful black sand beaches, Big Island will take you away to another world. Big Island features world class snorkeling at Kealakekua and lava flows from live volcanos. Then you grab a short flight over to Oahu to experience exciting Honolulu, with big city attractions while you stay at a hotel overlooking the one and only Waikiki Beach.

Our Shabbatot in Alaska and Hawaii have us staying in hotels while often getting together with the local community. Shabbat on Achva is not just an opportunity to relax, but an inspirational day that brings everyone closer together. 

Achva Alaska/Hawaii provides top notch supervision, an action-packed itinerary, and a range of once-in-a-lifetime experiences just not found anywhere else.  Topical Torah sessions will augment the trip and our dedicated counselor staff will make sure you have the summer of a lifetime.
