My girlfriend and I went on a hike on April 14th with Gregg. We tried the beginner's snowshoeing and boy what an astounding experience that was! If you are visiting Alaska and you want to experience the real Alaskan vibe, I would highly recommend considering them! When we started hiking, it started to snow a little which added more depth to our hike. Gregg is extremely knowledgeable about Alaska and his advice of viewing the Aurora Borealis came in very handy as we were able to finally see the lights! Next time I am back in Alaska, I am definitely going on a longer hike with GoHikeAlaska.

My daughter and I spent a fantastic morning with Gregg in the Chugach Mountains above Anchorage. It was a crisp, sunny day and the scenery was spectacular. Gregg was an extremely pleasant and knowledgeable guide who was attuned to our interests and ability levels, and we both enjoyed talking with him as we tromped through the snow in this beautiful setting. He had a very relaxed, easygoing style and we both felt comfortable with him almost immediately. It was clear that he loved what he was doing and enjoyed sharing it with others. He made a point of taking pictures of us together, despite the fact that his hands must have been freezing. He also provided a great recommendation for dinner that evening--best meal of the trip. It was a completely satisfying experience and one of the highlights of our late winter visit to Alaska.

Stop At: Chugach State Park, 18620 Seward Hwy, Anchorage, AK 99516, USA

If you have always wanted to try snowshoeing but did not know where to begin, look no further. What is snowshoeing? Snowshoeing is an activity which allows you to travel easily through snow-packed terrain. We will start by taking you to the mountainous wonderland of Glen Alps in the Chugach mountains just to the east of Anchorage. After a quick introduction on how to use a snowshoe, we will begin by walking around the parking lot until you get comfortable using them; you will get the hang of balancing and adjusting your stance almost immediately.

After everyone feels comfortable walking in their shoes, we will set off on our path. Our circuit takes us approximately two miles through hemlock forests and snow-covered alpine meadows. We will have plenty of opportunity for taking photos of the magnificent valley. There is opportunity to see small mammals, birds, or perhaps even a moose!
