Winter Experience Adventure Tour

Explore Alaska by Snowmobile and Dog Sled with our full day combo adventure. See stunning views of Denali and the Susitna River Basin as we follow the the Iditarod Trail. There’s adventure for all types of riders on this tour with groomed trails.

Tour Details

Your adventure starts with our signature dog sledding tour.  After a meet and greet with the dogs, many of who have done the Iditarod Sled Dog Race several times, you’ll take to the twists and turns of our winter trails on our custom-made tour sleds.  You can take in the sights as a passenger on the sled or help your guide drive the team! 

After dog sledding, we’ll exchange dog sleds for snowmobiles for some full-throttle fun!  Our expert guides tailor the time on the trail to the needs and abilities of the group making this ideal for novice and advanced riders!  After a safety briefing, we’ll explore Alaska over hills, along groomed trails and through powder! 

A good day on the trail requires a good meal!  We’ll stop at a lodge on the trail to grab some lunch.  Their unparalleled hospitality gives you a true taste of Alaska and chance to warm up, too!

Don’t forget your camera.  There will be plenty of photo ops throughout the day!
