Questions

How do I make reservations?

Fill out reservation form. Dennis will email you back.

How long is the tour?

It's about a 3 to 4 hour tour. Tour duration depends on the number of riders. The time can be lengthened or shortened based on your schedule.

The usual tour schedule is 10:00am and 4:00pm departures. However, if you are a large party, please call me at 907-351-3914 and we can schedule a departure time to fit your needs.

Yes. We also have boots, hats and sun glasses for your use. We have helmets available.

What do we need to bring?

Layered clothes are good for warmth. Long-sleeved shirts will protect your arms from scratches. Tennis shoes are ok, hiking boots are better. And be sure to bring your camera as we might see Alaska wildlife and, if the weather cooperates, you will be able to capture images of Mt. Denali (Mt. McKinley).

Do you furnish a meal?

Yes, sandwiches are provided for lunch. See the lunch menu. Soft drinks and water are available.

Do I get my own 4-wheeler (ATV)?

Yes, depending on your ability.

Yes, it will be a little cozy and not as much fun.

What are the age limits to drive an ATV?

Depends on ability.

4 adults, more if you want to sit on each other's laps.

How many people can you take at time?

A minimum of two up to a maximum of 20 people. Average tours consist of 8 people.

Will we see wildlife?

Possibly, I have talked to the animals but they do not always cooperate. Eagles and moose are the most likely animals along the trail. Occasionally, we've seen a bear.
