Eureka is one of our favorite places to ride. There is so much variety all in one place. If you are looking to trail ride, "play" in the swamps, or try your hand at boon docking through the trees this is the place to be! We will drive up to Eureka and stay at the Eureka Lodge. This trip will get to be exactly what you want. There are miles of groomed trails that we can just ride forever on. We will head over to the Nelchina Glacier and check that out. We can also go and find some wide open swamps and lakes so you can really get accustomed to your machine. A minimum of 2 drivers is necessary to book a multi-day adventure.
Check In: Clients will be met at our tour office by our guide staff upon arrival. Clients will be outfitted with snow boots, full snowmobile suit, gloves and a helmet. Once clients have signed a standard liability release form and fully suited up, we will caravan from our tour office to Sheep Mountain Lodge, where you will be staying during your trip. *If you prefer to ride with your guide to the trailhead you may do so with a maximum of 4 people.
Orientation: At the snowmobile trailhead, we will provide a safety briefing and orientation to snowmobiling. Topics covered will be proper operation of the snowmobile, general safety information, what to expect while on the tour route, procedures for possible wildlife encounters, and information on proper snowmobile riding techniques.
Inclusions: Snowmobile tour pricing includes snow boots, snowsuit, helmet, gloves, caravan to trailhead from our office, orientation to snowmobile operation and safety information, guided snowmobiling, fuel & oil, lodging, food (starting with lunch on the first day and ending with lunch on the last day) and friendly patient guide services throughout the entire trip. Guide gratuities are not included in tour price. (Note: clients are financially responsible for physical damage they may cause to the snowmobile due to careless or negligent operation).
Reservations: Due to limited capacity, advance reservations are required. A credit card is required to confirm and hold your reservation at time of booking. Payment is due upon check-in at our office prior to tour departure and may be handled with cash, Visa, or MasterCard. A 50% deposit is required for all multi day excursions. A 100% cancellation fee will be charged if reservation is cancelled within 30 days of departure.
Transportation: If you need transportation from your hotel to our location we can assist in finding a shuttle. We use Shuttle Services of Alaska for all of our transports.
Physical Limitations: It is not necessary that clients have previous snowmobiling experience prior to participating in one of our tours. Riding a snowmobile, as a general rule is more challenging than driving a car because it requires coordinated physical input such as leaning and moving on the seat to assist the snowmobile in turning. Drivers need to be prepared to heed the advice of their guide and use their body to be actively involved with the steering and driving of the snowmobile for proper operation. Please note that the maximum amount of weight a double-rider snowmobile can accommodate is a total of 300 pounds for both participants. If the clients combined weight is over 300 pounds, we recommend they ride single. Due to insurance and warranty restrictions a driver must be at least 16 years old.
We look forward to working with you. Please call our office at 907-745-2505 or email for additional information or clarification. Thank you!
