The Knik Glacier Adventure tour sends ATVs zooming across more than 50 miles of trails that lead to Knik Glacier. The local guides provide safety instruction and demonstrations of vehicles before each tour, and all-day options include a full meal on the trail.
ATV trips run from April 20 through November 15; snowmobiling is available from November 15 through April 30. Dates may vary depending on snow conditions. Drivers must be aged 16 or older.
Alaska Backcountry Adventure Tours
Moose saunter through the Alaskan wilderness in the warmer months; salmon and grizzlies fill the streams. When visitors mount ATVs or snowmobiles behind the local guides of Alaska Backcountry Adventure Tours, they count themselves among these lucky inhabitants of the woodsy Alaskan landscape. Patrons can also opt for hiking, camping, and rafting day trips or overnight stays in lodges and log cabins cozier than a sleeping bag stuffed with marshmallows. During summer, they can drink in the monolithic majesty of Knik Glacier, and awe-inspiring mountain peaks and glaciers backdrop each of the excursions, some of which include campfire meals cooked up in front of the natural grandeur.
