We’ll make stops so you can take in the incredible scenery of the mountains, meadows and lakes surrounding you and also for a chance to spot some of Alaska’s rare wildlife. Remember to bring your camera!

“High light of our trip. Great guide took us to see some great views. Wish we would have did the all day trip. Also seen some moose.”
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 riding an ATV 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 375 pounds for both participants. If the clients combined weight is over 375 pounds, we recommend they ride single.
