Alaska ATV Adventure
This 3-hour ATV excursion operates daily from May through September at 10 AM and 3 PM.
In October the tour operates, as weather allows, daily at noon
True Alaskan backcountry ATV riding awaits just a few miles south of Anchorage. Escape to the sights, sounds, and smells of the northernmost temperate rainforest while experiencing the thrill of the throttle through the winding wooded trails of the Chugach Mountain Range. From the alpine meadows of this wilderness area, there are frequent sightings of both brown and black bears, moose, mountain goats, and Dall sheep.
Adventurers have an opportunity to hike down to a spectacular waterfall fed by Bird Glacier and offering excellent salmon viewing, sneak peeks of Turnagain Arm, and snow-capped mountains in the distance. The unrivaled scenery, excellent wildlife viewing, and moderate terrain make this adventure suitable for all experience levels. Your Alaska Adventure Guide focuses on the small group experience for each departure.
Your Alaska Adventure Guide will meet you at the trailhead to provide each driver with an ATV/Quad orientation and training (which is part of the adventure in the expansive training site). Alaska ATV Adventures will provide you with any needed gear, including, helmet, safety glasses, and riding gloves. No two trips are exactly the same.
Chugach Base Camp, where the tour departs, is located in the northernmost most reaches of the Pacific coastal temperate rainforest. This is the largest temperate rainforest on the place which begins in Northern California, traverses 2500 coastal mikes, and ends a short distance from the facility, Chugach Base Camp. Just across the river and visible from camp, is Taiga. taiga is also known as Boreal or snow forest, hence the world’s largest land biome begins its journey here and spawls all the way to Siberia.
